Slumdog Millionaire

[It might be a bit late to write about this movie, but who cares!]

My first reaction on watching this movie was "Good movie, but not oscar-worthy". That is the same view I have presented to anyone who has cared (dared?) to ask me about it. The comment leads itself to speculation---what do we mean by "oscar-worthiness"? Is it a benchmark for a movie to be considered "more than good"? Then I hit upon a bright idea. Lets redefine the phrase "oscar-worthy" to mean "movies that are better than those deemed not oscar-worthy". There. Problem solved. :)

The following article does a seriously good job at reviewing this movie. It looks at it from different viewpoints and presents a consolidated review. Good job, Avani!
