Yeah, yeah. So Slumdog won afterall. Big deal. I was one of those who was rooting for it, thinking it would really show the man after all these years of the Academy awarding the bad movies of the year, passing them off as the best. I mean, there’s somehthing really magical about coming from nowhere and winning everything there is to win, right?
Haven’t watched it yet but a very reliable friend has it at home and he’s said all the noises that have been made about it are appropriate.
But after the Oscars, I find myself in all too familiar territory. I don’t think I want to watch it anymore. Either I am disturbed or I am coming down with another case of depression.
I have watched some intersting flicks lately though. I rewatched Pretty Woman and It’s remarkable how good that picture still is all these years later. I watched Gere in that one and then watched him in The Hunting Party (by the way, I just did not think that reference to Uganda as the heart of darkest Africa was funny) and I realise he is a real legend.
In other news, what’s so bad about posting Janet Museveni to Karamoja?
