Watched it last night....I enjoyed it, it was well soundtracked and had some lovely visuals although the story was very obvious (not a bad thing imo)
But best film of 2008/9 (oscar year)?
Not a patch on last year's contigent of No Country for Old Men and There Will Be Blood
I can't think of many other standout films in the same time period as slumdog (but I watch very few films which'll explain that!)...
p.s the questions he was asked were really easy, even I knew the answers to them all!
