    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Anyone seen GIRLFIGHT?

    Hi there!

    I was roaming the ailse of a local DVD store when I've come across this movie. At first I thought it might have been a cheap knockoff of Million dollar baby but upon further inspection I found out it was made 4 years earlier, and having seen it yesterday I like it a lot more. The plot twist are a lot less predictable and there's no crappy moping ending :laughing9 It reminded me SO MUCH about my youth, and it's a great inspirational sport drama that gets you motivated.

    YouTube- Girlfight trailer


    sorry for the abysmall video quality

    anyone seen it?

    How does this remind you of your youth? You were Michelle Rodriguez in high school and got into fights until you ironically learned how to box and break stereotypes, showing audiences everywhere that girls can kick ass too? Aren't you from Quebec?

    Pics or gtfo.

    I used to think I was just like Ryu from Street Fighter when I was 14. But then I realized I wasn't a videogame character nor was I Japanese and shotokan sucks. That was two days ago.

    -well the way I absolutely HATE, and I mean HATE!!! gossip girls (or boys for that matter) and I got into rivalries with such people all the time

    -the way my mother was sickened by the fact that I was boxing and constantly put me down

    -because I sparred with males coz their wasn't a lot of female fighters around

    -the way I was ridiculed at school about boxing until I suddendly started kicking ass in gym class after a long history of stereotypical geek unfitness

    -the way I once threw a fit and openly challenged a male bully for a fight (he never came though, probably for the best)

    I think that's quite enough reasons

    Didn't you just box for like 2 years? I'm glad you chose boxing over something shitty, but you're not 17, you did it for about 7% of your total life so far (and dropping), was it really that life-shaping?

    while i have a huge crush on rodriguez the movie itself is average. the story is fucking laughable too, there is no way they would EVER sanction those two to fight, there is no way he is the same weight as her, and there is no way she would actually win. weve all seen what happens when male and female trained fighters go at it.

    I see a male ego being bruised
