    I follow Leila Djansi and Beautiful Soul on twitter, and I saw both of thier posts. I didn't get the sense that Leila was irritated or upset. She actually has a sense of humour, and is just an eccentric artist....nothing wrong with that. She is irritated/upset about piracy, and calls folk out constantly.

    i didn't say she was upset. whether she is upset or not, we don't know. From outside, I saw BS tweets as an attack.

    and, Sola, this is not about audience opinion. I never mentioned or even directed my reasoning to audience. I asked whether a filmmaker of slumdog correcting its name will be considered snobby. I also said she may be corrected the kind of movie it is is based on buyers; who will distribute her film. not consumer buyers.
    just speculating. maybe its not so. what do I know.

    and you DS, it was Bs who brought your water goddesses name here first. not I.

    So I finally watched sinking sands, unfortunately it didn't do it for me all. It just dragged on and I was like when is this movie going to start....I found it dull and boring...It elicited no emotion from me, none at all even the guy that got burnt..no empathy or anger ...nothing..All I kept thinking was get to it already....
    By the time, I was through with the first part....I was done already and had no interest in the second.

    I saw it on Iroko a couple of weeks ago, it was OK. Had I not read the reviews on NR, it may have not been so drab, but my expectations were a bit heightened, so I was not too impressed, however, I did watch both parts.

    the version on iroko is not the version on amazon or DVD. the DVD version is 1:30min and the version on iroko it almost 2hrs. funny. you are the only person who had no emotions or think it dragged.
