Slumdog Millionaire...

Hi there my dear blogging friends! I'm so sorry I haven't posted yet this new year. I've been taking a blogging break. To organize, read, catch up with work, etc. All those things that I couldn't do over Christmas break.

Anyway, I wanted to share with you a movie that I absolutely LOVED. (I'm not exaggerating here)I don't think I've ever posted about a movie on this blog but thought Slumdog Millionaire definitely deserved a shout out.


It's won 4 Golden Globes and could possibly be an Oscar favorite. It's not in all movie theaters yet but should be soon.

Anyway, I should be posting more throughout the week. I've got a cute Valentine project I want to share AND I'm going to share my "addiction".

I saw this on the awards last night and had never heard of it. Now you have my curiosity up!
Hope you have a great week!

Melissa said...

Hi Brandee:
Missed your blogs, but I know sometimes you need a break.
I watched some of the Golden Globe Awards last night and saw that this got a few awards. I hadn't heard about it before either...
I will have to see what it's all about, thanks for the review.

Hey Brandee:) Ever since you told me about this movie I have seen talk of it everywhere on TV. I caught a little of the Golden Globes last night as well. Looks good. And to answer your question, I have not seen Twilight more than you. At least not yet;)

I'm dying to see this movie. It sounds so good. I need to find out if it's playing anywhere around here yet.

Krista said...

I haven't seen this one but we went and saw Curious Case of Benjamin Button and it was sooooo good!!! You will have to go see that one too!!

I saw this movie! It is good. Not many cliches so that's always good. Favorite part is the boy in the porta potty. lol It grossed me out and made me laugh. The end made me giggle too but it's an Indian movie. :)

People should go and see it!

I used to go to the movies all the time and have been here since August and haven't been once. This sounds like the perfect movie to go see at a new movie theater!

I've heard fabulous things about this movie. I added it to my Netflix queue. Can't wait to get it!

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

Several people have echoed your sentiments. The title throws me, but I will give it a go.

Carrie said...

I have never heard of it but can't wait to check it out.

Girly Stuff said...

The buzz is great...you have given it a personal touch...so I will be seeing it as soon as it's at a theater near me.

I just finished reading Revolutionary Road and am dying to see the movie...but it is at a theater 30 miles away. Another I am willing to wait for.

Glad you're back!

Mrs. Trixi said...

I too had taken a little bloggy break. I guess we just need one every now and again. I have heard some buzz about this movie but that's about it. I will have to check it out. I can't wait to see what your project and addiction are!!!

Oh, and yeah the boxing can get dangerous.

Sometimes a blogging break is good for the soul!

Thanks for the movie recommendation!

Look forward to seeing the Valentine project.

Hey! Glad to see you're back blogging! Missed you! I have not had a chance to see this one, but now that you have recommended it I will watch for it! Enjoy the weather there...it is 30 below here today. I gotta start looking for that winter home in Arizona!

Pajama Mama said...

Hey girl...you better get back here....I am missing you!

I have never heard of that movie, I'll have to check it out. Right now we are waiting for Hotel for Dogs to come out on the 16th. It looks really cute!

I can't wait to see your Valentine project!

Cherry's Jubilee said...

I saw this JUST the other night on the globes. There are quite a few movies I want to see this year...usually they don't have any that look like they have value to them. We went and saw Australia and it was awesome...a bit long but good. NOW do tell...what is your addiction?

Becky said...

Happy New Year Brandee......glad to have you back!

I must live a sheltered life because I've never heard of this movie. But I am waaay behind times. HA!!

M.L. @ The House of Whimsy said...

Yea...you've made me feel so much better for the blogging break I took. I'm glad I wasn't the only one. Thanks for the heads-up about a good movie. There are so few these days.
Take Care.

Brandee,

I am curious and now I will have to check it out.

Missed your blog but every now and then you need to take a blog break, I keep telling myself that I will and then our little cutie does something that I just have to blog about.

Kitty Scraps said...

Good Morning Miz Brandee,
I left you two awards on my blog so be sure to go by and pick them up when you have a chance! *smiles*

Kitty Scraps said...

Too funny Brandee cause I've been wondering the same thing about our ancestors! I actually went two miserable days without taking anything until a co-worker gave me two Advils. My first stop after work that day was to buy a bottle (of Advil). We're not big on medications in our home, even the OTC kind and self medicating with liquor at work is frowned on! LOL Thanks for making me chuckle and smile today!

Erin said...

I have never seen this movie before. I am going to have to see this one!

Ros said...

What addiction could possibly top Twilight or blogging? I'm waiting with baited breath! Did you notice my little guy made it to cubs yesterday? I nearly posted about my amazingness for getting back in the groove.

Nicole said...

I'll have to watch for it, I'm always looking for a good movie! Can't wait to see your Valentines project!

Lisa said...

I hadn't even heard of it until you posted about it on facebook. Of course, it's not playing anywhere here. I'll have to wait until it gets to netflix.
