First off, full disclosure I am not a movie buff so there may have been better movies in 2010 but for my money – and what I’ve heard from people see a lot of movies – THE FIGHTER was the movie of 2010.
I am a boxing fan so that plays a part of it but much like The Wrestler where even people that never went to a professional wrasslin’ match found the movie and characters compelling The Fighter is simply a great story.
It left me thinking that we don’t really know the backstory of what is happening with the people that entertain us. I remember watching some of “Irish” Mickey Ward’s fights but never had an idea that any of that stuff was going on behind the scenes.
If you haven’t seen it check out The Fighter.
