Cinderella Man - finally saw this
« on: May 12, 2008, 06:06:04 AM »
I was quite surprised. It was actually quite good IMO.

It's the movie about Jim Braddock the depression era boxer that stars Russell Crow and Renée Zellweger. Not a big fan of Renée's but she did ok in it. It was mostly interesting because of the story of this guy's life rather than being a "boxing" movie like Rocky. They spent a significant amount of time in the ring and especially so towards the end but the main thing was that Braddock was a very interesting person. That made the movie worth seeing. Got it saved on Tivo and will probably watch bits and pieces again for a few days.

hahah, it's definitely not a fucking boxing movie- even though they spent a lot of time in the ring towards the end, it's only to make the audience constantly terrified on behalf of the wife
