Fabulous Movie Reviews©

Slumdog Millionaire
Am I missing something? Sure, it's good, but it certainly didn't get me all hot and bothered like so many people out there. The only thing really original about it was that it takes place in India (I realize that may only be original to me). Is the story that ground breaking or ingenious? Nah, not really.

7 out of 10 (Good)

If you are like me and are perfectly happy living in a world where Ralph Macchio's career vanished like a plate of ribeyes at Big A's house, then you might not be interested in Crossroads, but it's actually not bad. A decent story about a kid who wants to be a "blues man". If you can get past Ralph's goofy facial expressions, this is good enough to watch when you have an hour and a half to kill late one night (or early one morning) like I did.

Also, the scene where Ralphie and Steve Vai have a battle of the guitars is pure 1980s GOLD!

6.5 out of 10 (Pretty good)

An excellent little film from Christopher Nolan who also did Memento, one of the greatest movies ever, and Dark Knight, one of the most very good movies (don't criticize my grammar, it's on purpose) of recent times. It's got a great story and because I am smartest of the dumb guys, not dumbest of the smart guys (hmm, maybe I am dumbest of the smart guys. I'm not totally sure of the difference), the ending was a complete surprise to me.

8 out of 10 (Very, very good)
