Movie Trailers

“The more you get hit the harder you fight. I get it.” Southpaw trailer

Jake Gyllenhaal Southpaw

What is it about boxing movies that gets us so excited?  The sport is all but gone from the public consciousness thanks to MMA, yet somehow we get a new boxing flick every couple years.  And almost all of them are very well done.  Even Grudge Match, despite a lot of folks not liking that one (read my review here).

So, here is Jake Gyllenhaal playing a boxer who talks like Eminem, which is ironic since Gyllenhaal took over the role after Eminem dropped out.  I know the film looks good, but that white boy ghetto speak is going to make me have a hard time with this movie.  No question about it.

This is directed by Antoine Fuqua, who also directed The Equalizer, which I liked quite a bit, and Training Day, which has it’s problems but I still liked.
