Million Dollar Baby

I went to see Million Dollar Baby last night. It might be the best boxing movie I've ever seen. I'll have to watch Raging Bull again sometime to judge for certain. From a movie-making standpoint, almost every aspect of Million Dollar Baby was very well done. Clint Eastwood is quite the talent: actor, director, producer. Oh, yeah, and composer -- he did the music for the film, too.

Fun trivia: the movie was filmed in 37 days. Originally scheduled filming for 39 days. That's pretty impressive.

I won't say anything more about the movie itself, 'cause if you haven't heard already, there's a "secret" and if it hasn't already been spoiled for you, I don't want to be the one that spoils it. Curses, Bill Maher, for spoiling it for me last week! I had been doing so well avoiding press about the movie. I have issues with some of the content, but it's a good movie and worth watching. Even if you don't like boxing.

ETA: An article at does a good job of spoiling the movie, if you're so inclined to know the ending without seeing the movie. The article also hits on one of my favorite aspects of law -- copyright law -- by asking the question: "The Controversy Over Politically-Motivated "Million Dollar Baby" Spoilers: Do They Violate Copyright Law By Destroying Market Demand For the Movie?" It's a good article.
