This year has been a good year for fight movies. To kick the year off there was the multi Oscar nominated and Oscar winning The Fighter. This week there is another film which looks to rival The Fighter, and dare I say it, be up there with Rocky. The film I am talking about is Warrior.
Tom Hardy, Joel Edgerton and Nick Nolte star in this film about “two brothers facing the fight of a lifetime – and the wreckage of their broken family – within the brutal, high-stakes world of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA)” (imdb.com)
Australians know who Joel Edgerton is, the rest of the world started taking notice after his performance in Animal Kingdom, but once Warrior hits screens, the whole world will definitely know who Joel Edgerton is!
I had a chance to talk to Joel about Warrior. I could have spoken to him for ages. He is one of the soundest guys, who deserves every bit of success! We chatted about the movie, what he’d fight for, how he deals with fame and his gratitude for being able to do what he loves. Check out the interview below:
I’m Sarina Bellissimo and this is the place I come to indulge in my love of all things entertainment. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t fascinated by all things Hollywood/showbiz. I blame my parents!
As a child my mum used to force me to watch old Elvis Presley films with her, and both my mum & dad would take my brothers and I to the Drive-In to watch the latest films (this is where my love for ROCKY began!). When not watching movies, I was trying to figure out ways to pull the back off the TV so I could somehow get into it and be a part of all the action on the screen!
This blog isn’t a place that revels in gossip and negativity. It’s a place where entertainment is celebrated. That said, this is a place you can turn to for honesty. Honesty and criticism don’t always mean attacks. I choose to criticise the piece of work but not the person and I acknowledge that just because I don’t like something, it doesn’t mean someone else won’t.
Here you’ll find interviews with some of the biggest names in the world of Entertainment, reviews, breaking news and my very own musings.
