Ok, so I really do enjoy big Media content. Although we have too many kids, my crafty wife has managed to get shifts of babysitters to watch our 2 1/2 yr old and the triplets. As a result we have actually seen a couple of movies including almost all of the Best Picture Nominees.
My favorite? Million Dollar baby. Not just because it has Million in the title.
Clint Eastwood is an amazing director. Hillary Swank, though I don't care for her generally, is powerful. The story is engaging and hit me in the torso like I haven't been hit in a while, pleasantly surprising me after a section of the movie, that in retrospect, had slowed by design. Go see it!
