    ^^^Really?? I want to see it, but I'm afraid it's gonna suck. I feel like the really hyped up ones are usually a letdown.

    It doesn't suck, but it's definitely not one of the greats. It goes into my "worth seeing on DVD, but not spending money for the theater" pile.

    However, I can't remember anything I've seen in the theater lately that I was glad I saw there. Maybe Sweeney Todd (more Johnny Depp for the buck).

    We're gonna go see it at a Drafthouse-type place in Dallas. It can't suck if you can eat and drink while watching

    That would be a fine place to see it. I don't remember there being a lot of subtle dialogue that you feel you would miss out on if you're eating at the same time.

    There are some movies that play better on the big screen than TV. I loved Titanic in the theater but can't being myself to sit through it when it plays on television. IMO it's a really boring film when you don't see the boat on the big screen.

    I think it's the same with Slumdog. It was a good movie but I don't think I would like it on small screen. On the big screen it's almost as if you are there in the slums with them. I think it would be cheesy on the small screen- esp with the Who Wants to be a Millionaire angle.

    i really liked it. great ensemble cast and just a really well made film. i think in the hands of anyone else (especially a cheesy american director à la ron howard), it would have turned out cheesy but in the hands of danny boyle it came out like a dickensian modern fairytale. i'm glad he won best director.
