I finally saw Million Dollar Baby, and it’s great! One of the best movies I’ve seen in a while. The only boxing movie that was as good a Million Dollar Baby was Raging Bull, which came out in 1980 or ’81. Now what about this new movie called “Pitfighter,” anyone seen it that can tell us about that one?
