Well the Obligatory Slumdog Millionaire comic. It’s late, but I still have a few more S.M. comic ideas left. But if you’re sick and tired of poverty porn, let me know in the comments and I wont do any more S.M. comics.

So anyone else felt the connection with City of God? Everybody likes it… but I wonder if there were as many protests in Brazil. After all, this IS Brazilian Poverty Porn.

I’m sure the residents of Rio de Janeiro were up in arms about this Oscar baiting movie which shows only one side of their city, and ignores the normal beach-going, McDonald’s eating, BMW driving population.

I particularly like the opening sequence.

    @kartikey: It was! Brilliant… I bought the City of Men series also. They’re great too.

    @deepak: I don’t do SRK. But I CAN move on..

    @amit: I didn’t see the full movie. That’s right, I’m one of those “judge something without knowing shit about it” type of people.

    Hmmmm… Ignoring the creative liberties used by Boyle, the film is just an OK fare in my opinion. Good for a one time watch. Oscar worthy? Not in my opinion. But yeah, going overboard with the poverty porn rhetoric is kinda stupid. But when way people are blabbering on about SDM being an inspirational story, showcase of victory of humanity and bullshit like that, I seriously wonder, WTFF are they smoking? Call me shallow, but what was inspirational in it anyway?

    BTW, the hand is your best friend when you have lots of time, and porn.

    @sree: I found it a very NORMAL movie. Poor hero, gets the girl in the end. No seriously? And yes WTF is inspirational? That’s like saying all these reality shows on TV are inspirational. Are they? How do these participants get such long leaves???? You want inspiration, go watch The Pursuit of Happiness for fuck’s sake.

    Also, God is watching you when you masturbate. HE’ll strike you blind and kill a kitten everytime you do it. God created the whole universe and all the galaxies and stuff, but he has a personal aversion to YOU masturbating… for some reason.

    Fuck God! Even he can’t stop anyone from having their happy hours. First God creates the titties and then he expects us not to be titillated? Screw you, God! I don’t like your sadistic methods.

    Now since I’ve blasphemed, let me see if he has the guts to smite me, or some kittens or puppies. I dare him. I double dare him!

    It is with great sadness that I inform you of the unfortunate and sad end of Sree (a regular reader of this comic). He perished in a freak lightening strike. He left our world for an eternity of torment (which mainly consists of being sodomized by demons).

    Late comment, BUT the movie was pretty idiotic. Stagnant acting, bad cinematography and horrible dubbing apart, the plot was bland and not even remotely inspirational.

    How the fuck some Indians liked it, I don’t know. But one thing I got to know from this ‘incident’ was that 98% of the urban populace watches movies for hype-value.
