The Wrestler (2008)
Then that Cobain pussy had to come around and ruin it all.
So basically: Randy is a washed-up wrestler working at a grocery store while fighting on the weekends, when a heart-attack sends him to the hospital and gives him a second chance. He tries to reconnect with the daughter he never knew and to fall in love with a stripper he frequently sees. But when a big rematch fight is in the works, he must choose between his old life and his new one.
I absolutely hate Darren Aronofsky, but I was willing to give this movie a chance after so much praise. My assumptions were correct. The story is bland, the acting is alright (I still love Marisa Tomei, tho), and Randy isn't a very good character at all. He had his chance with wrestling, was very successful, and then grew older. That stuff happens. Move on already. God. How selfish can you get. And then he gets a second chance and he goes and blows it! What kind of a main character is that? I'm sorry, but no.
Why is this movie so high up? Srs. This movie does not deserve to be on the list at all.
Ziggi seal of disapproval!
