This has got to be by far the best movie on the planet.

I expected a boxing movie, so I was looking forward to watching it. The boxing isn't all that great, but what's really memorable about the movie is the ending, which I obviously can't give away.

But f*ck. I never ever cry, ever. I'm just not the crying type. But this movie teared me up like a c*nt. Twice.


So yeah. See it. Whether you like boxing or not.

Yes, you definately should. Probably the best film of 2004.

Million Dollar Baby is an excellent film. But it just feels so overrated. Don't get me wrong, it's a great movie and I've watched it multiple times in the theaters, but overrating is a problem. Not just with this movie, but with most of the critically hailed films. Sideways was great, leagues better than Lost in Translation in my opinion, but it certainly wasn't the second coming of independent comedy.

Million Dollar Baby was excellent, but it certainly does not touch on subjects that haven't been touched on in normal films. And to be honest, most of the characters aside from the two or three leads are painfully static and one-dimensional.

Eternal Sunshine is underrated to me.
