Spinal Tapped For Greatness
Do you know the story of boxer Vinny Pazienza? If not, stop reading and go see Bleed For This!
If you do, continue to read AND then go see Bleed For This!!
Everyone loves an movie about an underdog, hispecially a sports one, where our hero is fighting against all the odds, and coming out on top in the end! Angelo Pizzo is THE guy to tell those stories. Ever hear of Hoosiers or Rudy?? He’s that guy! And he co-wrote this incredible true story for the big screen, for the guy who directed Boiler Room (Ben Younger), and for that dude who directed Raging Bull, who co-produced this movie. What does that tell you about this movie?
What if they threw in Miles Teller as Vinny Paz? Remember how many Miles of blood Teller bleed for that redonky donk drumming movie??? HE DOES IT HERE EVEN MORE!!! THE WORD ‘BLEED‘ IS IN THE TITLE!!! WHAT DOES THAT TELL YOU??? THAT HE WILL BLEED A LOT AND IT’S GOING TO BE PAINFULLY AWESOME!!! I can also tell you that Miles Teller is incredible, here and for always!
And what if I told you that Aaron Eckhart was both unrecognizable AND fantastic in this movie? He plays Vinny’s trainer Kevin Rooney (who also trained Mike Tyson!), and he’s both unrecognizable AND fantastic. I TOLD YOU! And he even shaved most of his forehead hair for the part! Like some straight up Ruffalo Foxcatcher forehead shave job greatness!
And what if I told you that the greatest living actor – Ciarán Hinds – was in it too?
And Katey Sagal too!?
And what if I told you that I love you? Would you go see this movie?? OK, I love you!!! ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
