ROHAN....hey man, I know you say you've read the script to Slumdog, but see the movie man! I can't even imagine how reading the script to that movie would do it ANY justice! That movie had like the best sound design I've ever heard, and the cinematography is absolutely beautiful! I really REALLY hope it wins best picture, and you should really check it out!

Also, American Beauty is one of my favorite movies of all time....treat yourself!

Taken looks really good, I just don't have the time to go see it right now, unfortunately.
I see the world Lucius Hunt, just not the way you see it.

We bootlegged the movie a couple months ago and have watched it like a hundred times, TRUST ME it's not NEARLY as good as in theaters....it's one of those movies that the theater experience makes the movie great.....like SIGNS!!!!

A good show, I was impressed. Still don't know why Slumdog got the best picture. It's okay, it happened so happened. I don't care anymore. I am happy for Heath, I mean the guy got the Academy Award.

Sean Penn won again, that's surprising. I am happy for him even though I wanted Brad Pitt to win.

I wasn't really surprised by most of the choices that won.  Though Slumdog Millionaire won a few more than I expected.

I have no comment on SM winning most of the awards. I just don't know what to say. All I know is that besides SM there were other movies that were directed perfectly and performed perfectly.

Jai Ho!

Taken looks really good, I just don't have the time to go see it right now, unfortunately.

And yeah, "Taken" is awesome.

Rohan, I'm assuming you mean Button and Dark Knight.

I haven't seen Benjamin Button yet, though when it comes out on DVD I will.

I had a friend who saw it, he said it was okay, the graphics were good, but he just wasn't a big fan of it.
