It's gonna be really good - it's gotten fantastic reviews. Some people are even calling it his best yet.

It's right up there with Revolutionary Road, Benjamin Button, Milk, and The Reader for movies to end this year. Actually, it's almost definitely above all of those in my mind.

As a wrestling fan, Mickey Rourke fan and fan of movies this one has me really excited. There are a lot of wrestlers who make appearances too like R-Truth, Necro Butcher, Earnest The Cat Miller.

Don't forget Gran Turino, no one seems to even have heard of it. The trailer looks sort of cheesy, but it's Clint Eastwood being a badass, it'll get good reviews.

That it does. I have a friend who can't wait for it, but... I just can't get myself excited. Fighting Asian gangs? Eh. The finger-gun out of the pocket is cool as all hell, but other than that and Clint being a badass in general, I don't see any reason for over anticipation.

At least it'll be better than Changeling.

Dude sent in a review of Gran Turino on AintItCool.com. Said it was almost on-par with Million Dollar Baby.

Haven't seen that, don't really plan to. I like Eastwood as a director, but somehow I can't see him directing a woman's torment of losing her kid then being conned and all that very well.

He didn't. It was the very definition of cheese.

Eastwood says Gran Turino is his final acting role. I definitely have some doubts about the content, but there's enough quality people attatched that I'll still see it.

I really can't wait for The Wrestler. Aronofsky is always interesting, even when it's stuff I'm not crazy about.

You can also tack Slumdog Millionair to that list of year end movies. This years high end Oscar level movie releases seem to be one of the oddest collections I can remember. A lot of smaller releases that I'm even having trouble finding. I'm sure they'll release wide eventually, but at this time last year it feels like I'd seen all the big releases already.
