    Well I hope not, Slumdog was awful. Usually movies that are lauded as amazing by the award committees are usually quite the opposite.

    However this movie looks like it could be good, looks especially depressing too.

    I do not like that they had the NERVE to even try to put SLUM DOG and this Movie in the same sentence. Makes no SENSE!!
    This movie is about a young Black women going through hell because of the LOSER ADULTS in her life.
    Slum dog is about POOR folks in general...
    In the USA...
    Poor folks are all over.. but, they overcome POOR in the USA..
    Well, most of the time..
    Hell, I am POOR... But, I been all over the world!!
    I had a OK life!!
    So, that is what I am angry about!

    I sure the actual film will not live up to the media hype. I'm already weary of it. Does it have a feelgood (how much do i hate that word!) ending where precious, after all her tribulations, finds salvation? I'm guessing it has. personally, i detest these 'heartwarming' movies...& yes, before you say it, i am a miserable bastard.

    I worked with quite a few women who read novels that he even names in there. Some of them were so bad they made me laugh out loud with lines like "U promised me diamonds and I stole your riches yo".

    Every single one of the books I saw and read parts of were identical too. They started with a prostitute getting into fights, dating a rich guy that beat them and generally ended in murder. That wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for the deliberate misspellings and horrible grammar however.
