    The Wrestler

    ★★★★½

    This film moved me more than anything in recent memory. The scenes with Randy and his daughter were heartbreaking. It was absolutely painful to see a man, who was at one time very powerful, reduced to just a shell. Of course, all of us will face the reckoning that Randy did. And ours won't be so well documented. This story truly gives insight into what really matters. All fame, power, and health will be taken from each and every one…

    RoboCop

    ★★★★

    Watched this years ago on VHS. I remember it being really cheesy acting, and over the top violence. And I was right! Actually it is much better than I remember. Very few 80’s action movies hold up as well.
    Robocop has “Heart”. And the cops cruise around in the coolest Ford Taurus cars around!

    If only ED-209 wasn’t such a F/U. :)

    Highly recommended, with friends, lots of popcorn, and ice cold Budweisers. :)
