I went out to the movies with my wife for New Year's Eve. It has become somewhat of a tradition for use to go out to dinner and a movie on New Year's Eve and so rather than spend the evening at a Blues Bar which was our other option, we went to the movies.
We saw The Fighter with Mark Walberg, Christian Bale and Amy Adams. The movie was outstanding. It was an incredible portrait of the sad lives of mill town America and how they have nothing but fighting and sports to escape into any dignity at all. It is an indictment of everything about capitalist culture in America. It displayed human beings as pure commodites.
