SapiMalas’s Must Watched Movies List

Slumdog Millionaire
A boy trying to win 20 million rupees from “Who Wants to be A Millionaire” kind of quiz, win the heart of a girl and dodging the police’s suspicion. Based on a best-seller book titled “Q&A” by Vikas Swarup, it also recently won the National Board of Review of Motion Pictures award as the Best Film of 2008.

Meryl Streep as the Principal of Catholic School. Phillip Seymour Hoffman as the charismatic priest, accused of “paying too much attention” to one of the student. Enough said.

The Boy in the Stripped Pyjamas
I know what will happen since I’ve read the book. I’d love to see how the tragic story from the perspective of a child, will be translated into movie.

Revolutionary Road
Kate Winslet and Leonardo diCaprio are back as a couple! Finally, he looks compatible and believable enough to be Kate’s object of affection. I hope nobody will drown this time.

Tale of Despereaux
(or to be descriptive: Being the Story of a Mouse, a Princess, Some Soup and a Spool of Thread)
Love the book! I can’t wait to see the Mouse Knight saving The Princess in action.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s story about a man who was born in his eighties and aged backwards. I want to see Brad Pitt’s transformation from old age into childhood. Plenty of
Oscar buzz included.

I can’t get enough of World War II movies. Buff, army guys is one reason. Another reason is I love to see combat action with not too much special effect. This one has Daniel Craig in it. Yummy.

Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist
This movie said to be the next cult hit as “Juno” did last year. The soundtrack already became a instant hit. I find Michael Cera’s dorky face very adorable.

The Brothers Bloom
I find Adrien Brody’s starving feature very sexy. I’d love to see him playing con-man in pursuit of a rich heiress, Rachel Weisz. Rinko Kikuchi who once amazed the audience by her brazen role in Babel, also makes her comeback.

Dear Tom…finally! I’m getting used of your long absence post-matrimonial bliss period.

Local Color
The yahoo movie description says: A talented but troubled art school student befriends an elderly alcoholic genius painter who has turned his back on art and life. I say, based on the many awards it already won and displayed in the poster, it should be good.

I always try to look at glasses as half-full. I’d like to see how the heroine also struggle to do the same.

Don’t you just love Oscar season! Plenty of good movies, beautiful screenplay and brilliant acting.
