Tuesday Movie: Million Dollar Baby

This is the second time I've selected a Clint Eastwood film for my Tuesday movie.  I guess I like Clint's movies.  There are several reasons to love this film. For one, it's got Morgan Freeman who I would pay to read the phone book.  He just oozes integrity in every role he's in. Hillary Swank is phenomenal as Maggie the boxer and who doesn't love a good boxing movie?  Rocky, Cinderella Man, The Fighter, etc...

I don't want to give the plot away if you haven't seen it, but I totally recommend it.  My husband gave me a signed script from this film, which is kinda cool. I used to write screenplays and he knew this movie was one of my faves.
Well, you already know that if a movie appears on this blog, there's at least one death in the film.  So, there's your spoiler.  Have Kleenex next to your popcorn and enjoy!


  1. I've never seen it - probably b/c you need kleenix. hey! I don't need movies to use kleenex -- it's all around me - sadness and despair -- my task is to avoid it at all costs.

  2. I can't remember when I saw this movie, but I missed part of the beginning which confused me a little. It is very sad, though. As for Morgan Freeman, I used to love his work. His voice is unforgettable, but now that he's got that love affair thing with his step-granddaughter or whoever that is, I just can't look at him the same. Clint Eastwood had/has pet rats. He's also a vegetarian. I give him a thumbs up for that. You wouldn't know how compassionate he is based on his movies.

    1. Depends on which movies we're talking about.
