Million Dollar Baby
Hey, I guess I will post now. I actually saw this movie in an advanced screening and thought it was amazing. Because I saw it before all the "controversy," I was not even aware of the twist that was coming. I swear, when that happened, everyone in the audience gasped. It was so amazing to see it without any indication of the twist. I know when I saw it again with my sister she said she knew something was coming, so she spent the first part of the movie waiting for it to come. So, does anyone one else think that even knowing that a twist is coming diminishes the power of the film? I mean, I think it is great either way, but I think the shock really adds something.
So anyway, as you might have guessed, this is my favorite film of the year with Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind close behind. I really hope the Academy does the right thing and gives Million Dollar Baby the credit deserves. If Clint doesn't win, I am going to be very upset.
