The Wrestler

Hi everyone! I've been recovering from the finish of my book and will be back to doing posts tomorrow! Thanks for all the love and support. I watched The Wrestler last night and cried my eyes out. Review to come!

I've always liked Mickey Rourke, his flaws and all. As soon as "The Wrestler" comes out on DVD I'll watch it.

P.S. Thank you for the unique prizes ;0)

I haven't seen that one. I watched "Wanted" tonight. Was kind of silly.

Hi Dr. Brooks!

Not sure if you remember me from Comp and Creative Writing - but you probably do, since I'm so unforgetable. (Ha ha, joking!)

I ran across your blog - and funny, I was just talking about you the other day!! Strange.

Hope you're doing well!!

xoxo, Amber Choike

The previews for that make me think of "The Champ," which was devestating to watch as a child who'd recently lost their own father. I must give it a chance, though. Mickey Rourke's way cool. Have you ever seen "Barfly?" If not, I recommend it.
