I recently, for some reason, decided to watch Oscar nominated movies.
"Slumdog Millionaire" and "Up in the Air"

They were actually better than I was expecting. I was NOT expecting to like either one. I really enjoyed Slumdog Millionaire and Up in the Air was okay...

Slumdog Millionaire took you through the life of a young man playing "Who wants to be a Millionaire" It started off with him being tortured for how he knew the answers (basically how he was cheating) So, he went through each question and with flashbacks showed when he learned the answer. The questions from the beginning took us through his life, up to the moment he is playing the game live.  It had a sad and happy ending. But it was very good. I would recommend it. 

Up in the Air was fine. Up until like the last 10 minutes, it had great potential to end as a chick flick. But then something happened (nothing tragic, just unexpected).  It didn't have a bad ending, but it wasn't the "chick flick ending" that it could've had. It ended well, just not particularly happy. Eh. I wouldn't really recommend it.

I have netflix and I would LOVE recommendations. What are your favorite movies?!?
Have a Happy Friday!


  1. If you haven't seen Amadeus, you're missing out. The Duchess (with Keira Knightley) was really good too, and I was surprised she didn't nab an Oscar for it (was she even nominated?? I don't know.).

    And Elizabethtown was the best movie EVER. >=]

  2. I liked Precious and The Hurt Locker (also nominated this year)
