Tocmai am vazut un film frumos. Se cheama Resurrecting the Champ. Cu Samuel L. Jackson si pustiu’ ala de a jucat in „Lucky Number Slevin”. Exaact, ala de il imită pe Brad Pitt da’ nu-i iese.
Whatever. De film ziceam. Bun tare… mai ales Jackson are un rol frumos si dramatic. Un fost boxeur care devine vagabond. De fapt nu chiar vagabond, doar nu avea casa. (I’m not a bum, I’m just homeless.)
Btw, pe afis scrie cam asa: Based on a true story, that was based on a lie.
Ceea ce mi-a placut a fost faptul ca filmul are un umor neasteptat. Foarte bine gandit. Sa va dau vreo doua exemple. Atentie, urmeaza spoiler-e 🙂

Ike Epstein: Bob Satterfield died in `82-`83…
Erik Kernan: I just saw him… last night
Ike Epstein: Heh… Not Satterfield
Erik Kernan: Yeah! Satterfield! I spoke with his son… on the phone
Ike Epstein: His son told you he was alive?
Erik Kernan: No, but they don’t get along…
Ike Epstein: Let’s get to the bottom of this.

*blah blah… the pops make a couple of phonecalls*

Ike Epstein: He thinks he’s dead
Erik Kernan: Impossible!
Crony: We don’t use that word anymore
Ike Epstein: He thinks he’s dead, but he’s not sure…
Crony: Who was that?
Ike Epstein: Freddie Bingaman
Crony: Impossible!
Crony: Freddie Bingaman is dead.
Ike Epstein: I just talked to him on the telephone…
Crony: It was Freddie Benjamin you talked to!
Ike Epstein: Freddie Benjamin is dead! Two years ago
Crony: I saw Freddie Benjamin last Christmas!
Ike Epstein: Freddie Benjamin is a pats. Plus, he is dead. Like Satterfield.

Deh… batranetea, ce sa-i faci. E haios mosu’ de joaca rolul lui Crony. Apare doar in scena asta, da’ accentu` de irlandez face totul! 😉

Erik Kernan: You’re Tommy Kincaid. Bob Satterfield knocked you out in the second round!!
You made a foul out of me.
The Champ: I ain’t made no fou’ outta you, maybe you made a fou’ outta yo’self!
Erik Kernan: Why, because I believed you? You put my reputation on the line!
The Champ: I didn’t knew you had one. I never heard of you…
Erik Kernan: Yeah, well… I never heard of you, either.
The Champ: I’m Bob Satterfield
Erik Kernan: Bullshit! *Bullshit*
The Champ: Well… I’ve been Satterfield long when you’ve been whoever you say you is.
