    Mickey Rourke is a pretty fascinating looking dude these days, even when he’s doing nothing. I haven’t paid any attention to pro-wrestling since about 1990 but it is kind of a fascinating entertainment phenomenon. Aronofsky has proven to have some fascinating film ideas, even if not all of them are golden. So this film looks fascinating, especially when you consider the amount of critical praise it’s been getting (Oscar tips for actor, actress and director, 100% on the Rotten Tomatoes critic meter). Plus, for some reason I still have a crush on Marisa Tomei.

    The trailer is good, even a little moving if you’re an old softie, but maybe not going to knock your socks all the way off. Still, after seeing how good Rocky Balboa turned out and also with this new JCVD thing I’m quite curious to see what these old warhorses still have in the tank. There’s something compelling about lost and fallen men trying to keep the fire alight and reaching for some redemption.

    I think it looks good. A real tear-jerker kinda movie.
