The movie is labeled as Psychological Drama and you admitted that it has bad acting. The movie obviously sucks. Clint doing an 80 year old Dirty Harry doesn't count as good acting because it wasn't good acting the first time. You sucking up Clint's Dirty Harry image doesn't make the movie good.

The acting is bad and the trailer is god awful. It smells like a pile of shyt. If that opinion isn't satisfactory for you, you can suck my d!ck for all I care.

Take it easy Christian Bale.

However, the difference between us is that I actually watched the movie before I made any definitive statements about things like acting, plot, etc.

I can see why you might think that the movie will suck. I thought that it would suck... It didn't... and the bottom line is, your opinion cannot be taken seriously until you actually watch the movie. Then, you can critique it all you like.

I thought that it had an interesting plot-line. Most people expect old people to be feeble, helpless, and afraid of the outside world. But, one of the most intriguing things about the film was Clint's interaction with his family... Something that you cannot get from a trailer.

It was just an entertaining story with some unique themes and an awesome acting performance out of Eastwood... Asking someone to explain 'why' they liked a movie to someone who hasn't seen it is sort of pointless. There can be no back-and-forth or point/counter-point.

Just keep in mind that I thought the trailer made it look comically bad and I had very low expectations going in... I walked away liking the film. That doesn't mean that you will have the same reaction, but I really don't understand the method behind debating the finer points of a film that you haven't seen.

I think the good acting part is the most suspect because Clint isn't a good actor. He was a movie star with the exception of Unforgiven and maybe another movie or so. These types of movies need good performances for me to enjoy them. When you start to get a slight bit older it becomes easier to pin point what you will and will not like.

Will I see the movie? Well, I've seen them all with the exception of: Where Eagles Dare, Bird, A Perfect World, Blood Work and Space Cowboys and his two newest ones. I'll probably see it sooner or later. But it seems like a movie that people went in with really low exceptions but have come out overhyping the movie some.

The thing is that Million Dollar Baby and Mystic River were hyped up when they came out, but now are often trashed.

Seems like you're just being influenced by other people. Watch the movie, form your own opinion. I still love Mystic River, although the second and third viewing of Million Dollar Baby, I didn't like it as much.

Excellent. He goes after the 3 major religions and the silly, unexplainable things people believe and do for them without ever questioning why. He also gives Scientology a kick to the nuts (which is why I'm guessing it wasn't at least nominated for an Oscar.)

Even if you completely disagree with him I think it is very much worth watching.

8/10





For hardcore Bruce fans only. Man, this had a great premise but the writing and actors are so painfully bad it even brings down the greatness of Bruce. He looks like he just doesn't give a damn and did this for the quick pay check. There are some nice funny parts and it starts off with some promise to be a great cheesy B movie spoof but it just completely falls apart b/c of the sheer stupidity of the script and extremely low production values. Without Bruce this would be worse than Bloody Murder (and since I doubt hardly anyone has seen that, I'll let you know that is a pretty big diss in my book). There is also a pretty offensive Asian caricature in there played by white man Ted Raimi.

3/10

I still like Million Dollar Baby. I haven't watched Mystic River in 3 years. My point is that people always have a love fest with Clint's movies at the start and then it often fades over time.

*Recent* Clint movies that is.

If you've only seen the commercials, say that the commericals look bad, or something.

It makes sense to bash and obvious cheaply made movie (I don't think they even had enough cash to hire real actors) with bad acting. It's funny that people say I shouldn't bash it before I see it, yet I picked the cheap bad acting from the trailer.

People just want to hang onto an image of an obviously past his prime old movie star. I'll decide what view I want to have of a movie and for what reason.

When I see this movie and the same things I'm saying ends up popping up and I come back and let you know. Maybe people will get it. No, then you will just claim that I had already made up my mind before seeing it and is unwilling to change his opinions.

Clint's recent movies have been manipulative in a cheap way. I sense that will be at play here also. That's what has been catching people with his movies this decade. Then they see through them. Although Million Dollar Baby isn't really terrible, it's basically a lifetime channel movie with it's exaggerated villain mom and all.

No, it doesn't make sense to bash a movie you haven't seen. You can say things like, 'it'll probably suck', 'I know I won't like it', 'it looks bad from the previews' and such, but to flat out say a movie which you haven't even seen is bad is stupid and ignorant. If you go around bashing a movie that you haven't seen, then nobody is going to give a sh!t about your opinion on that movie.

Man... I didn't like that movie at all. In fact, as a boxing fan, it made me mad. I thought that their portrayal of a sport that I love was wildly unrealistic. The girl that committed multiple fouls in the bout in which the lead was severely injured would have been disqualified in the first round and I don't care if it was the worst referee in the history of boxing.

Also, I felt like the second half of the movie was an attempt to make the viewer weep... It was so obvious that it didn't have any effect on me, emotionally.

I just didn't think it was very good.

Dude, there is so many places you can read about movies and stuff. It's not like I just saw the name of the movie and said that the movie surely sucks. I've seen Clint's movies this decade. I know what his formula is. He has become a cheesy movie maker and his movie making has become lifetime channel caliber. I can see that he tries to reach back into his past abit on this one. But he is what he is overall. A sentimental old man now.

You can choose to not give a shyt about my opinion. That's up to you. No offense to you as I have no problem with you, but I don't know why I'm supposed to care about what other people think.

I'm watching it now. This is just how my dad acts on a daily basis. I see this in real life everyday almost.
