Fighting with My Family stars Florence Pugh as a girl who’s born into a pro-wrestling family, then follows her dreams to join the WWE. If that sounds far-fetched to you, then you’ll be surprised to know that Fighting with My Family is based on a true story and 2012 documentary of the same name. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson plays himself but he worked behind the scenes as well, executive-producing while British actor/writer Stephan Merchant directed. There’s an excellent cast too, including Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz), Lena Headey (Game of Thrones, The Purge) and Vince Vaughn (Wedding Crashers, Hacksaw Ridge) as an American WWE scout, who visits London in search of new talent. Wrestling fans already know how the story plays out, but the rest of us are in for some sweet and occasionally sad surprises. So, who wants to see Fighting with My Family EARLY and FOR FREE?

Mel Gibson has turned into some kind of magician. I say this because he’s done a handful of incredible and somewhat inexplicable things with his latest movie, Hacksaw Ridge. It’s the true story of WWII Army Medic Desmond T. Doss, who served during the battle of Okinawa. Doss was a Conscientious Objector who refused to use a weapon, but he was still awarded the Medal of Honor.
This is Gibson’s first time back in the Director’s Chair since 2006’s Apocalypto. His comfort level though, virtually erases that ten-year absence. It’s one of the first surprises offered up by Hacksaw Ridge, which opens to a horrific battle scene. Imagine the gore of Braveheart, but with the intensity and explosions of Saving Private Ryan. Gibson wastes no time introducing the horrors of war, where the Medic Doss is trying desperately to save his men. Continue reading →
Are you still mad at Mel Gibson?
If so, I get it. He said some pretty awful things during that drunk-driving arrest in 2006. You might want to prepare yourself though, because Mel Gibson is back on the scene.
In fact, he directed a movie that you probably already want to see called Hacksaw Ridge. It stars Andrew Garfield as WWII Army Medic Desmond T. Doss, who became the first Conscientious Objector to win the Medal of Honor.
Gibson made this project with Producer David Permut, who is both gay and Jewish but still has glowing things to say about the man after working with him. Hacksaw Ridge is also getting Oscar caliber praise, which may put Gibson in the running for another statue (You remember how much you loved Braveheart, don’t you?).
If you still don’t want to forgive him, I completely understand. Even better, I have a way for you to see Hacksaw Ridge without giving Mel Gibson any of your money. Just click HERE to get your FREE MOVIE PASSES, then watch the trailer below. Wow, it’s kind of like being a Conscientious Objector!
