I'm all ears.
Million Dollar Baby
Ok, you're probably thinking "I wonder if Hassun brought up the 9-11 attacks 2 months after the facts too"
but the film was released last Thursday where I live so bear with me.
I must say I'm impressed, no wonder it got all the glory at the oscars.
It's the best film I've seen in a while. Mr Eastwood, Mr Freeman and a stunning Hilary Swank
(only writing her last name makes it sound tacky) kicked me in the face with their phenomenal acting.
If it wasn't for the fluid feces slurping retardeds behind me -more on them in the 'Obnoxious Theatre Audiences' thread-
it would have been a perfect evening.
This is just totally my kind of film; terrific acting, action, people getting hit in the face, misery, blood, ...
You name it Hassun loves it!
So to make this thread useful (yeah that'll be the day )
Do you people think it deserves the honours it has recieved?
Oh and for anyone with a loose tongue or a dementing mind:
(I am well aware I'm not quoting anyone but the quote window tends to stand out more)
I posted this in the 'Music and Movies'
in the 'Spoilers' forum
I thought the film was incredible. Calling it well made would absolutely be an understatement....everything hit the right notes, the screenplay, cinematography, music and of course the knock-out performances (no pun intended). I was just so happy that Mr. Freeman finally won an oscar for his role here.
I'm all ears.
I don't think this was Mr Freeman's best role but he totally deserves that Oscar of course.
I am with you on that one, it wasn't Morgan's strongest role but i am just glad he finally got one. I mean Shawshank Redemption....the guy shouldve got 2 awards for that! But ah well, that's another story....

I thought it deserved the nominations, but the only award I think it deserved was Supporting Actor for Morgan Freeman. It was a good movie though, I enjoyed it, I thought it had a very touching a smart story and Eastwood did a great job directing it, but Scorcese deserved the Best Director nod for Aviator in my opinion.
He wasn't bad but.........a Oscar??
I'm all ears.
You should have known Scorcese wasn't going to get the Oscar anyway.
