Movie Review: Real Steel

This movie was very pretty, from a visual sense, and it had good music. Unfortunately, if I wanted to watch a pretty movie with good music, I would watch Fly Away Home, not ROBOT BOXING. Really, that’s the premise of the movie: ROBOT BOXING. Sounds exciting! And yet I fast-forwarded over vast swathes of the […]
