This fall has been so surprising to me, with films that I greatly looked forward to knowing next to nothing about them other than the premise and director like this and Slumdog, and loving the film-makers and being stunned when critics finally give them the respect they deserve, same goes for David Fincher (although I knew much more about that being a Fitzgerald fan). I've been agonizing waiting to see this one, and usually in Boston we get everything quickly, except for annoying releases in 2 theaters in LA and NYC, like this one and Gran Torino.

Mickey's one of my fav actors a living legend as far as I'm concerned. We used to be in bewilderment in the 80s why he never won an Oscar. Diner, the Pope, Angel Heart, Barfly.....class. What's going to suck is if the Oscars get cancelled because of the strike and he finally wins.

I just saw the movie last night. It was awesome! Mickey Rourke should definitely be nominated for an Oscar. Marisa Tomei was awesome too. Rourke completely gets into the role of Randy the Ram and you find yourself forgetting its actually him playing the character. Terrific stuff!

I saw the film yesterday and it is awesome! Gritty, realistic, Mickey and Marisa's acting was superb, 80s rock soundtrack, great location to add to the overall mood of the film...and the Springsteen song is amazing!

Wow! Glad to see Mickey win for this movie as well as Bruce for best song. Hopefully, they'll be in the mix come Oscar time!

It's nowhere near me either, I've seen the trailer but still no movie yet. If he wins the Oscar it will probably get wide release if not before then. I'm rooting for him to win.

I really enjoyed this, although I didn't believe for a second any red-blooded young male would turn down a lap dance from Marisa Tomei.

I especially liked the ending. It pissed me off at first because although his relations with the world had partly done it to him, he also did it to himself in not taking up the offer given him at the end.

Considering I always hated WWF Wrestling, it's shocking and sad to see the level to which the fans exploit these people in the name of "love".

Just saw this last night, I thought it was fantastic.

And I certainly never would pass up a lap dance from Marisa Tomei - she looks fantastic.

She was great, but Mickey Rourke was amazing in this. Playing a role too close to home, indeed.

They should give the Oscar to Tomei's body.
