Cinderella Man

Ron Howard, 2005 (8.4*)
Fans of Rocky and Raging Bull and other classic boxing films will love this true story from Ron Howard, who manages to perfectly capture the look of the 30's era. Russell Crowe plays heavyweight boxer Jim Braddock, a former boxer now working the docks due to an injury to his right hand. However, concentrating on his left hand has now made him a southpaw boxer and more of a threat. Renee Zellweger looks perfect as his supportive wife. If you don’t know boxing history, I won’t spoil it here, just be prepared for a good G-rated sports film about a clean family man and a very uplifting story.

About This Blog

This is our new template: ProBlogger.

These are the individual film reviews of what I'm considering the best 1000 dvds available, whether they are films, miniseries, or live concerts. Rather than rush out all 1000 at once, I'm doing them over time to allow inclusion of new releases - in fact, 2008 has the most of any year so far, 30 titles in all; that was a very good year for films, one of the best ever.
