Raging Bull (And no, I’m not talking politicians…)

July 14, 2008

We thought we’d try and watch Hellboy I and headed to our neighborhood Blockbuster.  I decided that our Blockbuster must get ALL of the rejected movies from all of the Blockbusters in the nation.  They had terrible movies and movies I’d never heard or inclined to watch.

Instead we came home and caught Raging Bull on IFC. I had bad memories of this movie because my parents took me to see this as a kid and being a wimp, I thought the boxing scenes were terrifying.  It was a masterpiece.  A timeless movie, well shot, written acted…just  a terrific movie.  The story behind the movie is also rather fascinating.
