Movie Million Dollar Baby (2004)

20170621:
I've seen this movie once before and it's been sitting in my Netflix My List for a while now. I suppose, without realizing, that I watch dramas less frequently than I watch action movies. Perhap because the former is more mentally exhausting than the latter.

Frankie Dunn (Clint Eastwood)

In any case, at just over two hours, Million Dollar Baby tells a story containing a wide variety of themes.

By the time I finished the movie, there was no doubt in my mind that I enjoyed watching it. I would highly recommend it.

Netflix determined the movie for me as a 90% match. I decided to give the movie a thumbs up.

Damn. "You let him hit you."
Narrator sounds like Morgan Freeman, but perhaps with a slighter faster pace and deeper than I'm used to hearing
Ha. He's asking about the Trinity.

Eddie Scrap-Iron Dupris (Morgan Freeman) and Frankie

"There are no Demigods you fucking Pagan."
Oh, there's Morgan Freeman. He's using an in-character voice.
"I saw your last fight, Shawrelle. Spent so much time face down I thought the canvas had titties."
Wow. She's 31. Same age as me. Becoming a boxer is definitely ambitious. Such a story wouldn't be impossible, but ambitious nonetheless.


I remember this part where she wins all her first few matches with knockouts.
Oh wow. That's disheartening (her mom's comments regarding the house and general lack of support)
"One-hundred and ten. Get a job, punk."
Sciatic nerve.

Scrap and Danger Barch (Jay Baruchel)

Oh, I was wondering earlier which movie the sideways chair was in.
Ha. "You didn't win. I don't have to tell you."
