So I watched another Oscar worthy performance this weekend in the Fighter, well several (Oscar worthy)actually but Christian Bale stood out in this movie, basically stealing every scene he was in. How he manages to transform himself ffrom one movie role to the next is just amazing. Here he plays a skinny, twitchy, toothless crack addict with a Boston accent. The movie itself was really good too, but then anyone that knows me knows that I have a bit of a thing for the boxing movies. Blame Rocky.
Bale transforms himself yet again
