Million Dollar Baby (2004)

I've established two things after watching MDB:
1)Clint Eastwood does not train girls
2)Clint Eastwood also does not direct a movie that ends according to how the viewers want it to end.

I don't know what it is with Clint, but his choice in movies always seperates him from the other actors. He tries, actually tried (now that he's retired) to give the audience a movie that does not end like each and every other movie we see now and then. Clint does not know or has never come a cross a course in acting school entitled HappyEnding101. The guy just gives it to you. Whether you like it or you don't, not his problem. His only concern is making sure it does not end according to how YOU want it to end. You will watch MDB, enjoy it, be caught off guard by it, and recommend it. Thats how the man with no name roles and there ain't nothing you can do about it.

This movie is exciting, emotional, clinty. Very few actors decide to hand pick the last few movies in their career like the ones Eastwood has chosen for us to remember him by.


  1. You should see "Gran Torino." It is so good and it is your typical Clint Eastwood movie that your describe above. I can't wait to read your reviews on your upcoming movies. I've seen about six of them.

  2. I've seen gran torino! and loved it!
