Cinderella Man was okay. Crowe is a believable boxer and as a Torontonian, it was funny seeing some of the old buildings here filling in for Depression era Manhattan.
I highly recommend the documentary "When We Kings" about the Rumble in the Jungle. Makes you remember than George Foreman wasn't always a cuddly grill salesman.
Diggstown anyone ? More of a caper movie than boxing but it was funny and I like James Woods.
I personally didn't like Million Dollar Baby. Eastwood and Freeman were of course great and so was she, up to a point (sorry, can't remember the actresses name) But the ending was pathetic.
Yes, I am a boxing fan.... lol
