I requested this thread because no way can I be the only person obsessed with this movie...seriously, Slumdog is outpacing Twilight these days on the obsessiveness scale. Just absolutely everything about the movie is amazing, and I can enjoy it in so many ways, from a purely audience perspective to the perspective of my inner filmmaker (for instance, there is this one wide shot of the kids standing on top of a train with MIA's Paper Planes playing in the background and the song is perfectly synched to the rhythm of the train, I get excited just thinking about how amazing the editing there is). And the cinematography is amazing and the acting and the characters are so great and the soundtrack and aldfjdsklagjeklwfjekl, there are not even words for how good this movie is. I am utterly in love with it.

I was wondering also if anyone besides me has not only seen the movie but also read the book it was based on? I really liked the book but I like the movie better.

I saw this movie a couple days ago and fell in love with it, however, sorry, not in an obsessive way. The way it showed the slums of India was incredible. From the very beginning, it was great, but so sad. However, in the movie theatre, I had to sit next to this older man who was literally laughing through the entire movie. I nearly turned to him and said, "What the hell is so funny?" Honestly, I was getting really pissed off because that is some serious stuff that is going on right now.

Oh, and I LOVED the music! That was great and the acting? Or the filming? Man, they did a phenominal job on that movie.

Yeah, by 7 I meant 8, lol. I was really hyper when I posted that and I guess my ability to count was a little off as a result. :roll:

I haven't seen the movie yet..but I was really getting tired of hearing the name so many times when I was watching the Oscars. It was kind of like when a radio station plays the same song over and over again until you just don't like it anymore because it is SO played out.
