The Fighter: There's More Than One Kind of Fight

There are probably a lot of you out there who've already seen this movie, but it's worth mentioning for those of you who haven't. It's great. As an added bonus, a lot of you have probably seen The Dark Night Rises recently and Christian Bale's character is so wildly different in The Fighter that it's fun to see the contrast. Though I guess both do have a certain has-been quality...

But I digress. The Fighter is a great movie because in addition to being about a dude who punches dudes (always fun) it's a pretty nuanced look at any number of other kinds of fighting, fighting drug addiction, fighting your family, fighting yourself, but not with like, punching. It's on Netflix right now, so you should definitely load it up if you've got two hours or so to kill. And then work out. You'll probably feel like you should work out afterwards. [Netflix]
