I didn't want to bring this up on the other thread.
WHAT, you have never seen Raging Bull??????????
My friend, you must go out and rent it NOW. As I said before it was voted the best movie of a decade, the 80's.
It is in glorious Black and White
Robert De Niro is simply amazing. He gained 30-40 pounds for some of his parts in this movie
The boxing scenes are just brutal, nothing like this was ever done before in this style.
I remember a few years back, I recommended this movie to one of our younger member on this board, who had never seen it. I completely raved about it, as I love this movie. he came back, after watching it, and basically hated it. Why, I never really was able to understand, but I know your movie likes and dislikes Jim, and you will love this movie.
Acting-just award winning
Story-if you really get into it, award winning.
Just a must see movie.
In BluRay, the fight scenes will be even more brutal.
