    has anyone seen this great film yet?

    tbh i really liked it as it was really well done/funny and i couldnt see anyone else apart from mickey rourke playing that part at all.

    8/10 imo

    Meh.

    Twilight was much better imo.

    Its story and character development was superior is so many ways. The wrestler was overrated.

    This is an experiment to see if I can Twilight hijack this topic. I have not seen or read any of the Twilight series.

    Never watched Wrestler before. The title makes the movie sound like it's going to be very cliche. (Trying to prove Sock wrong.)

    It had to be Mickey playing that part, he's making a comeback in the movie and real life, lol. (Even though I thought he was good in Sin City) Only problem is, this comeback will probably end here, lol.

    One of my favorite movies this year. My god was this a gem. I loved pretty much every moment of it, except for that 80s being upbeat a-typical bull---- reference (gothic rock anyone?). But yeah, I think it helped refine the character development though, so I didn't mind too much. I really did love this movie.

    Honestly, I didn't like the ending... he just jumped down the pole... then credits :(

    The speach he made at the end really touched my heart tho, and I thought it was funny how they brought a black guy, with absolutely no accent in what so ever, and they made us think he's Iranian
    I'm Iranian and I know lol... trust me
