  • A Fighting Man 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 25 Jul, 2014

    I kind of can't get over the fact that I just watched a sports movie. I normally don't watch them because I'm definitely not a sports fan AT ALL but I watched boxing flick "A Fighting Man" and it was a fantastic film that was better than "Rocky".

    I second everything Corey "Goon" Pierce said even though I liked it more than he did. Listen, this movie has been overhyped and overrated like crazy. This is not revolutionary, "game changing" filmmaking, it's just a pretty darn solid popcorn horror-comedy with good performances from Whitford, Jenkins and Fran Kranz as well as some cool cameos (although Jodelle Ferland is wasted which should be punishable by law!) I won't spoil the last half hour but the effects were terrible in…
