The Wrestler

Saw the Wrestler and was amazed by the acting. Mickey Rourke plays a washed up wrestler from the late 80's, Randy "The Ram" more than to perfection. I was a fan when wrestling was hot back then. Junk Yard Dog, Iron Sheik, Hulk Hogan, I followed them all. Rourke plays a down on his luck wrestler that it looks like squandered anything he earned and wrestled his entire life. Its definitely a MUST see!! The story is great as well as the acting. Evan Rachel Wood and Marissa Tomei were great in it as well. Rourke lost his dog this week and I really liked this ad they did for PETA. I know how hard it will be for him without him..
