I just saw Million Dollar Baby yesterday on HBO. I was disappointed and not sure what all the hype was about. Sure the story was tragic, but personally, it didn't evoke any emotion in me one bit - and I'm not ashamed to say that I've been known to drop a tear at a movie before.
I have no idea why it won best picture. I have no idea why it wasn't just another movie.
Morgan Freeman was good, sort of cast in a similar supporting role to his role in The Shawshank Redemption, but not nearly as impactful.
