    It's official: Benjamin Button is the most underrated movie in the world:mad:
    and nobody has ever seen or will ever see Slum Dog Millionaire despite the 1,000,000,000,000 awards it's won.

    Your thoughts...

    These fanciful movie awards shows are always overrated. They pick the movies that got the best reviews from critics, but then how about the best movies that people actually liked? Nope, those get left behind. My votes for best movies go to The Dark Knight, Iron Man, Tropic Thunder, and Pineapple Express.

    Slum Dog Millionaire won.

    @THEDeliriumTrigger
    I'm not going to lie. I almost cried. I'm not a fan of his and I'm not giving him extra credit because of his death, but he did an absolutely amazing job in that role.

    too bad he messed himself up. An amazing performance, but at what cost?

    I loved Heath. I didn't feel much when I learned that he had died, but then I saw the movie... oh god... that was a punch to the gut.

    What the hell is slumdog millionaire?

    Edit: LOL ^^^^ It's been asked so many times! LMAO!

    TCCoBB was great, but the original short story was so heartbreaking (and I'm a guy) that the way hollywood sugar coated it bugged me. download the story in the appstore, in 99c. you'll see what I'm talking about. *sniff*

    Its my favorite film of all time. Everyone did amazing, but he really stole the show. I dont think his death should've made him any more eligible either, but the amount of dedication and study he put into the role does.

    The Dark Knight? The Curious Case of Benjamin Button?

    Nobody knows what Slumdog Millionaire is so don't sweat it ;)

    I think it should have won best original score, but it was't even nominated.:confused:

    During the awards, they mentioned that shot when he was hanging out of the police car shaking hair. I got chills. I've never been more impressed with a super hero movie. Spiderman 2 was the only other time I even acknowledged one as being good, but this movie is in a league by itself.

    I've seen all the "big" movies such as The Dark Knight, Iron Man, Tropic Thunder, Hulk, etc. I'm just saying I haven't heard of Slumdog Millionare, or Benjamin Button, and other nominiees. (just googled "Milk, The Reader, Frost/Nixion. I haven't heard of those either)
