The Fighter (2010)


That guy did not just get off the fuckin' couch. If he did, I'm gonna get a couch like that.
So basically: The true story of light welterweight champion "Irish" Mickey Ward in his early years. He must somehow find a balance between his family, who has always been there for him, especially his brother Dicky, his coach and the career he has always dreamed of.

NO! WHY?! I thought Rocky was bad! Or even The Wrestler! But no, this trumps all fighting movies as the worst. I don't like these kinds of movies - but hey, I did give Rocky a seal of approval, so there are exceptions! - and so I wasn't expecting to like this at all. But, I did not expect it to be this bad. The Wrestler I could at least tolerate watching the second time, but I think I would run away screaming if someone wanted me to watch this again. It's bland and annoying and I want to punch them all in the face!

I have no idea how this got on the list in the first place. It is just a bad movie!

Ziggi seal of disapproval!


  1. The Fighter is definitely a overrated movie. I really don't get it why this movie got such positive reviews and was nominated for Best Picture. It's basically your typical, predictable underdog story. Nothing special in my opinion. Without Christian Bale this would be just a forgettable boxing movie. I'd suggest watching Rocky or The Wrestler instead.

  2. Christian Bale is catnip to the IMDb fanboys.

    1. Christian Bale is without question the greatest actor of this generation. If you are in any way in doubt, please watch his movies. If you have watched all of his movies and still don't agree then please promptly kill yourself as you have absolutely no value whatsoever.
