Just saw The Fighter with my 25 year old son, Anthony....

It was a great film based on the true story of Dicky Eklund and Mickey Ward, the boxing brothers. It was an awesome character study. The performances of Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale and Melissa Leo are Oscar worthy.

A nice way to spend Christmas afternoon with my favorite guy...check it out.

You're welcome. I always try to give credit where credit is due. The characters just suck you in.

This was a very good movie. Amy Adams is HOT.

Her character, that of the girlfriend of Mickey Ward, didn't take any bull **** off of his Mom and mean-ass Irish sisters. She killed in that role. Wahlberg is always good, as is Bale.

True story, too. What's not to like?

Yes, ugly things evolve when a gene pool is turned too much inward. I'm Scotch-Irish myself, but luckily through the last 4-5 generation of my lineage, a little Choctaw Indian along with some Mississippi redneck was tossed into the woodpile, thus creating some nice diversity.

Wonder what roles those gals will land from here out?

Maybe in a sequel to "The Departed"? Loved that one, too.

I saw the movie, predictable fun, sort of "Rocky goes to Boston."

It's hard to believe that while Christian Bale plays Walberg's older brother, in real life Walberg is the one who is older (some three years older).

Really, Bale did look as though he lived on an all-crack diet for a coulple of months to prepare for this role.

Tore up from the floor up, was he.

I have not been to this movie yet but I grew up and live in the city which these brothers live and where it was filmed, Lowell MA. I have met the real Dicky before, but not Mickey. Great story and glad to see something posted about it here.
