"Slumdog Millionaire" - Vijay Patel says Wha?

Today I'm reviewing:

Slumdog Millionaire

I have to admit, I was a little hesitant to see "Slumdog Millionaire" at first.

I know it won Best Picture, but two things started to turn me off to it before I even rented it:

1) I saw a preview that showed the cast dancing that stupid fucking Bollywood shit dance stuff

2) I've been in the computer/technology industry for, like, 15 years now and - really - I thought I pretty much new every Indian person on the face of the planet since I'd worked with most of them.

Wrong on both counts.

That's right.

I was wrong.

Mark your calendar, folks, it doesn't happen often.

Slumdog Millionaire is one of the best movies I've ever seen.

(FYI- that stupid dance shit happens in the credits, thank Christ.)

Once I got past the dialect thing.

You see, I suck with accents.

If you have even the slightest accent, I'm totally fucked in any conversation with you.

Movies with Scottish/Irish actors?

Fuck it. Forget it. I give up after the first five minutes.

I have no fucking clue (or, as you Scottish say, "Feeeckin gloo") what the Hell you're talking about.

How Braveheart managed to be one of my favorites is still a mystery.



Regardless, it took me about 10 minutes to acclimate to the accents.

But once I did...



It's an excellent story set in mostly 'flashback' mode about a poor Indian boy (termed a 'slumdog' - and you'll see why in horrible detail) who gets on the Indian version of the show 'Who Wants to be a Millionaire.'


My last rental was fucking Marley and Me and I still find myself crying myself to fucking sleep some nights.

Stupid dog movie - why must you emasculate me so?!?!

So it was good to see a well acted, well written and excellent movie overall.

See it.

My Score:

4 Mooge Splats (out of a possible 4)

Now excuse, me...

...Vijay Sangesh Patel needs some help in the lab.

I think.

I'm not sure...I can't understand what the fuck he's saying.

Moog out.

Slumdog AND Braveheart -- we dig two of the same movies? This is some scary fucking shit.
