Anyone watched "the fighter" yet?

I only become aware of the film late last year after barky pointed it out. I'll be going to the cinema as always when it's released, but im sure it's probably available to view.

Anyway, great reviews and Oscar nominations.

Has anyone watched it? Did you like it? I happen to love boxing anyway so can't wait!

I have. It's good. Decent story which isn't well know (like 127 hours), good performance from bale if not a little crazy (he is playing a drug addict so fair play). Also doesn't go on too long or try to be clever. Just a decent story.

going monday, looking forward to it

apologies for that not helping dg :p

Yeah I'm expecting bale to perform and from the trailer looks pretty spot on.

I'm surprised so many people watch it at home. Can't beat the big screen for releases like this. Glad it's getting hyped though!!

they get sent official screeners by the studios

Reckon you'd like Undisputed 2 and 3 danger...? Brilliant
#20
This time of year there are loads of screeners out there. You can argue whether it's fair or not till blue in the face but i resent paying £7.50 to see a film once. Especially considering how little of this goes to the film industry. I buy alot of blurays of films I like though. Personally I feel for a monthly subscription or a reduce cost films should get released for download legitimately. If I could pay £3 to watch a HD film in the comfort of my own home as soon as it's out in the cinema I would
#21
I gave up with it after a while because I couldn't get over the fact that Christian Bale was acting just like Phil Dunphy from Modern Family. It threw me.

Apparently I should have stuck with it though as my OH said it was very good. He does have a bit of a man crush on Marky Mark tho.

was packed to the rafters, no room, had to go home, not happy :(

I am going on Wednesday to watch this film. But if other people agree than I think I would rather see 127 hours.

yes, but what can you do if people use several copies of the same ticket? i even asked how could the woman collecting tickets not know its full, she said it was hard to count oO surely if there's 100 seats she should have been counting 100 people in, anyway nowhere to sit so had to come home

Watched this last night,But thought it was just OK & would not recommend it to others :-/

I heard it doesn't have enough boxing in it. All story no substance.

I don't think they wanted another Rocky,but more like a documentary.It was OK to watch but nothing special.Tonight I'll watch a Film called "The Town" gets good write-ups.

Saw a Sky Box Office trailer for that last night if it's the one i think it is.............with Ben Affleck? Looks good.
#31
I'll watch it tonight or in the morning & let you know if it's good.
#32

Saw the Town a couple of weeks ago, really good. I saw the extended edition which clocked in at 2 and a half hours, it was a bit too long, but still one of the best films I have seen in a long time.
#34
Watched "The Town" this morning & was a good film.Not a great Film,but worth watching.
#35
bale is a legend.

I thought the Town was good, definitely worth a watch.
Those nun masks they wore, were comical.

I watched the fighter at the weekend, great film, bales performance was brilliant, lost a lot of weight to do this role...not as extreme as he did for the machinist though, another great film
#37
good solid film....5 stars...probably not.

Bale does really well.....overshadows the main guy (im crap with names!) and his acting was great as well...ooh the mum was horrible!! great acting all round but there is no real 'rocky' moments iykwim....needs more oomph!

I was a bit disappointed by it
