Slumdog Millionaire (UK/USA 2008)

200812270937.jpg

Synopsis (possible Spoiler): The story of how impoverished Indian teen Jamal Malik became a contestant on the Hindi version of “Who Wants to be A Millionaire?” — an endeavor made without prize money in mind, rather, an effort to prove his love for his friend Latika, who is an ardent fan of the show.

Wow. Just wow. Interesting cutting and shocking pictures of India, told in a very interesting way.

Alien Raiders (USA 2008)

Synopsis (possible Spoiler): A bunch of people in a confined space. Aliens. Guns. Action.

It would’ve been more fun if they had named the movie differently – it’s kind of a give away. The directory tries hard to keep the audience guessing what is going on. And it’s working. Well, for a little while anyways. The small amount of money they had they spent on the practical effects. Carlos Bernard and Rockmond Dunbar are both in it. It’s certainly not your big-hollywood horror flick.
