Absolutely riveting the entire time. Based on true events when this terrorist attack happened in 2008 in Mumbai at the Taj Hotel. The City was helpless because they didn’t have an enforcement team to take down such an attack. The attack lasted days and the nearest City, New Delhi, didn’t arrive for several hours. Very intense and sad.

Based on a true story of a five-year old that gets lost hundreds of miles away from home. He faces a language barrier, being kidnapped and homelessness. This is a heart touching film that will bring you to tears. There’s video footage of the real people that this story is depicted about. The younger Saroo’s performance will bring you to tears. Great acting!

Based on the true story, I enjoyed learning about Srinivasa Ramanujan Iyengar journey to become a pioneer in mathematical theories with the guidance of his professor, G.H. Hardy. He earns admittance to Cambridge University during WWI coming from an impoverished child hood in India. Sad story.

This movie is a fusion of ‘District 9’ and ‘Real Steel’. The humor throughout the movie is what kept my attention. Two of the characters have heavy accents and one is sub-titled, lol. There are subliminal messages (just like District 9). I was surprised that Hugh Jackman signed on to this movie since ‘Real Steel’ was green lit for a sequel, any whoot.
