It's been awhile since I have seen a true 5 Star film. We rate these movies and say we love them, but I think we're a little lenient on the rating scale. Maybe we're feeling lovey-dovey and see a lovey-dovey movie so it's a 5-star. Or feeling violent, depressed, goofy, appreciative of your best friend, close to your family, etc. and you see a movie that reflects that feeling so you think it's a lot better than it probably is. Slumdog Millionaire is a true 5 star film. Everything you look for when you go on a cinematic adventure is in this movie: destiny, love, comedy, action, heart-wrench, history...the list goes on. As an English teacher, I can especially appreciate how thematic SM is and how the questions from the show become a flashback taking us on an unforgettable journey through the narrator's memory. Holy crap, that sounds so corny! I really mean it though; Slumdog Millionaire is the kind of movie that can change your life. It can make you a little more tolerant of a sibling, more likely to believe in destiny and that romantic love that will make you feel, make you more educated on poverty and why people living in it go to extremes?okay, this could go on for awhile; this movie will make you more human. You have to see it.
