I'm Going To Rant Again

Million Dollar Baby is on HBO for the millionth time this week, and I'll repeat what I've said a hundred times: The Movie Sux. And I've finally decided it's not the poor script, the ridiculous dialogue, the stupid fight scenes (it's BOXING not the WWE), or the Shawshank Redemption rip-off of the Morgan Freeman voice over, but it's the absolutely horrific acting. Clint Eastwood was awful and Hilary Swank was terrible. And it won an Academy Award.

I beg to differ, I loved this movie! It was really very sad but is still one of my favorites! To each his own.

Barry, I so agree...I'm not a big Clint Eastwwod fan anyway, but I love Hillary Swank, she was awseome in Boys Don't Cry, but in this movie, the acting was mediocre at best.

It was average at best. And I have no particular feelings about Eastwood (like him mostly), Swank or the subject of boxing. It was just a plodding movie. Yuk.

Keep you day job, perhaps you suck as a critic. It is entertainment and you have channel selection as well as Tivo. Entertainment is obviously somewhat subjective...remember...... Oprah?

I'm with you Barry, I sat and watch it with much anticipating, hoping it get betters, but no, it gets worse. The worst ending ever.

OH, I HATED the ending too...loved Morgan Freeman though. He's magnificent.
