The Fighter - 7/10
Well acted. good, true story. Christian Bale was really good, the mom was really good. I don't know what it was exactly, but this movie was missing something. Somehow missing the quality to really draw you in that great movies and Rocky 4 have. I liked it, I didn't love it.
on the other hand...
Black Swan - 9.2/10
This movie was fantastic. Dark, depressing, gripping, and tense. Couldn't pull my eyes from the screen to watch how the whole thing unfolds. can't see a possibility that Natalie Portman doesn't win best actress for this. everyone else was also quite fantastic. The whole use of imagery from light to dark was done really well. As the previous poster that saw this movie said, we would have liked to have seen more of the mother and director's story... but, there's only so much screen time available and it doesn't feel like any of it was wasted. blah, blah, blah.. really good movie, go see it.
