This month we are going to be taking on the films I enjoy, my favourites of all time. I have a strange taste in movies, so be ready to expect some true greats and some you could never see on anyone’s favourites list. I will only be picking movies on this list and it will just be my discussing my picks rather than giving full reviews.
Why I’ve Picked this choice – Back to something on a serious movie, this movie follows two distant brothers who enter a mixed martial arts tournament to win the prize money for different reasons. We are emotionally invested in both brothers in the film and each fight is purely hard hitting. The performances from both Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton are brilliant and the supporting characters as the coaches with different methods shine.
This is easily my favourite sports movie because we are left to see just how determined the brothers are, how much the win would mean to them and even at over 2 hours long you never feel like time is being wasted.
