Bald Bull's 'Bull Charge' was the end for Little Mac 


Bald Bull's 'Bull Charge' was the end for Little Mac

The Wrester is why we suffer through countless weepy, pretentious, and conceited Indie films. Darran Aronofsky, the director of The Wrestler, made math interesting with ‘Pi’ then he made drugs seem terrible and depressing with ‘Requiem for a Dream’, then he made Hugh Jackman actually act in ‘The Fountain’ and now he’s made professional wrestling seem gritty, real, and entertaining. To him the impossible is nothing.

Verdict – Mickey Rourke + violence x Marisa Tomei toppless a lot = damn fine Oscar worthy film making.


Extra Fun Fact – The X-Men Origins: Wolverine trailer showed before the movie, and it looked lame.

Bonus fun fact: the building he and his daughter break into on the boardwalk is in Asbury Park, NJ, and is where I saw my first concert ever – Green Day, 1998.
