"The only place I get hurt is out there. The world don't give a shit about me." The Ram

Mickey Rourke plays Randy 'The Ram' Robinson in the film The Wrestler. He lives up to the hype you've been hearing. The story is touching and heartwretching. Again a film I wouldn't normally see (I like happy, action packed films), but I made a promise to myself that I would try to see as many Oscar nominated performances as I could.

At first it was so I could enjoy the Oscars and know what was what, but I've realized today that these performance are inspiring me to write - to dig down emotionally the way these fine actors and actresses are doing - except on paper.

There is one difference....my stories will always have a happy ever after.
