: JC asked:
: : Has anyone seen the movie The Boxer with the one, the only-DDL? I'm just curious if it is worth renting.
: Hi, again, JC! I vote a big Thumbs UP for The Boxer. Very dramatic story, with some nice tender scenes between DDL and his lady love. Of course, the subject matter is troubling, but this film manages to show the pain on both sides, I think. And Daniel looks great, except for the concentration camp haircut...but then, I freely admit, I won't be happy till his hair looks like Hawkeye's again! Anyway, definitely rent it, and see for yourself. I'm sorry now I didn't see it in the theaters.
:I did see it in the theaters twice (Am I a DDL fanatic or what???!!!!). But I enjoyed it more on video because I could understand the dialect better (with the close captioned feature on) and I could pick certain little nuances which helped to clear up some things. And the most exciting part...I can rewind to my favorite scenes over & over & over....
