The Fighter [Editor's Note]

I guess I do realise the disturbing truth behind my pen missing out on the action of recent, it's been a while since an Editor's Note has been published. This is the award season engaging us in its fifth gear as we await the Golden Globes in less than two weeks' time. An influx of quality films will be and have been streaming into the cinemas and as a film lover, I've been terribly distracted. But there is one thing that I'll never allow my mind to depart from.

Happy New Year to all readers and I hope you had a great start to 2011 thus far!

While I've been out of action with you getting into all the celebratory action with your friends and family for the past couple of weeks, you should know that the days ahead will be full of cinematic action for you film fans alike.

Starting things proper for the new year in the boxing ring is "The Fighter", which features great cast ensemble performance that will leave you so amazed that it almost feels like a knock-out from their powerful blows of superb acting. No doubt that you might have noticed the award season buzz going about this film as it has been scoring numerous recognition in the forms of nominations. You should definitely catch this with your own eyes to check out the integrity of the buzz and determine if it's really overrated. I didn't think so and my opinion has warmly embraced the cast of the Flick of the Week with the likes of Mark Warlberg and Christian Bale, which you can check out here.

If it's really not your cup of tea, you might want to check out Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway in "Love and Other Drugs", an adult fare of romantic comedy. It will be a fresh take on the over-saturated genre that most serious film buffs always dismiss even before they arrive at the box-office. It's been said that the acting contributes as one of the top-notch performances of the year and there is a great chance of it being credible.

For all you know, I could be the one who's been spreading the word.

Blood and gore fans are not left out as the final closure chapter of the long living Saw series will come in an exciting third dimension offering that will pull in its audience even closer to all the torture porn on the silver screen. The legacy of Jigsaw comes full circle in "Saw 3D" to put an end to its glorious run of a total of 7 films.

I know you've been waiting so impatiently to play one of Jigsaw's traps.

Have a great start to great films this January!

Other films opening this week are "All Good Things", "Centurion", "Kinako: Police Dog Dream", and "The Last Days of Emma Blank".


  1. Saw it last night and I have to say that it exceeded my expectations. It's certainly one of the best boxing films I've ever seen. Period. :)

  2. I have to agree with Nebular. The Fighter leaves you absolutely awe struck and as you state J-Son, the biggest reason are the performances, particularly Christian Bale. He has earned himself the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor.

  3. @Nebular Yes indeed it is. Period. Aha.

    @MDV Yes, I'm so glad that you agree with Nebular and I. It's hard to see Bale going home without any award in my opinion.

  4. still yet to see it, though I really want to, did watch Love and other drugs though, quite good
