Warrior Joel Edgerton and Tom Hardy give knockout (pardon the pun) performances as estranged brothers who end up meeting in the ring. Edgerton is Brendan, who goes back to MMA fighting as a way to keep food on his family's table and slugs his way to a prizewinning competition. Hardy is angry Iraq vet Tommy, who enters the same competition as his brother has, being trained by their recovering-alcoholic dad (Nick Nolte) whom neither son can stand. Sure, it's predictable (most sports movies are) but this one is elevated by masterful performances on everyone's part and some terrific fight scenes care of director Gavin O’Connor. Extras: Audio commentary, making-of documentary, featurette on the philosophy of MMA, gag reel, deleted scene (DVD/BD); the BD adds an in-depth look at the film and on-camera commentary. Also available on VOD and digital download.

Midnight in Paris Woody Allen hasn't been on top of his game in recent years, but this loveable, sweet and yes, even funny movie marks something of a return to more familiar territory for the director. Owen Wilson is a Hollywood screenwriter with writer's block who travels with his fiancee to Paris, where one night he magically encounters a taxi full of famous bygone-era writers and artists that whisks him into the city's literary past. He spends his days in the present, biding his time until midnight when the vintage cab will bring him back to the Jazz Age and his new (well, old) friends.Extras: "Midnight in Cannes" featurette (DVD/BD), cast/crew photo galleries (BD)
Margin Call With a storyline ripped from the 2008 headlines, director J.C. Chandor's debut involves an investment bank about to be taken down thanks to some unsavory info about mortgage-backed securities that comes to light. The execs (Kevin Spacey, Paul Bettany, Jeremy Irons) have 24 hours to solve the crisis. Extras: Audio commentary, deleted scenes, making-of featurettes, photo gallery (DVD/BD)
Straw Dogs The deep South isn't so welcoming to a Hollywood screenwriter and his actress wife in this remake of Sam Peckinpah's controversial 1971 original.
Colombiana A young woman (Zoe Saldana) trains to be a professional killer in order to avenge her parents' murder that she witnessed as a child. If you buy that tiny Saldana in her undies can beat off the baddies with those pipe-cleaner arms, then you probably liked Salt, too.
Dolphin Tale Family film based on the true story of an injured dolphin saved by a prosthetic tail and the love of a young boy.
Glee: The Concert Movie
My pick is Ali with Will Smith.
My favorite is Rocky!
how is every one forgetting the greatest fighting movie ever... ROCKY IV
Raging Bull and Warrior
Rocky - a great movie
My favorite boxing movie is Rocky Balboa (the sixth one). I loved Warrior and I'd love to win this prize pack! Thanks for the chance to win!
Although there are a lot of amazing fighting/boxing films. One of my all time favorites is Rocky hands down!!!!
Fight Club is, by far, my favorite
WARRIOR IS THE BEST FIGHT MOVIE I'VE SEEN IN YEARS. Unfortunately, it wasn't promoted properly and therefore, didn't get the attention it deserves. This movie is GENIUS! From Hardy, Edgerton, Frank (the awesome trainer - wish more were like him) and of course, Nick Nolte gave the proformance of his life. This movie deserves to at the very least, be nominated for an Academy Award as well as all the actors above. If you haven't seen The Warrior...you are missing out on one of the greatest movies of all time!
Ragin Bull is greatest boxing movie.
believe it or not my favorite fighting movie is Warrior
Rocky. You don't always have to "win"
Rocky! You can't beat the line, "Yo Adrian!"
My favorite boxing movie is Rocky because it proves that you don't have to win a match in order to achieve happiness.
I would like to say The Champ...the old Wallace Beery film is what first came to mind, but really, I have to agree with most people and say it's Raging Bull!
rocky (the original) is my favorite
Warrior is my favorite.. blew Rocky away.. after 2 hours I was just sad there wasn't more.. extremely compelling and moving drama.. exciting direction. I LOVED it
Raging Bull is my favorite.
I have to say Warrior is my favorite fighting to date!
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
