I have no clue what this is about. I just want to see it because Bridges won the Oscar for it.

It's about a once well known Country music singer whose time in the spotlight and big name has faded. He basically gets by through cheap gigs at bars and clubs. He falls for a girl, and sees a chance to climb to the top again. Oh, and he's a raging alcoholic. If you've seen The Wrestler, it reminded me a lot of that plotwise.

Me, neither. I found myself kind of twindling my thumbs during some of the music numbers, but I still enjoyed the movie despite that.

I'm not wild about country music at all either but this is good ol' boy country music -- like Waylon Jennings-style -- which is just fine by me. Bridges owns the role of Bad Blake as much as he owned the role of The Dude. The comparisons to The Wrestler are all well-deserved... but imagine it as being like The Wrestler meets Once. The Wrestler ends on a dark, depressing note. I won't spoil the ending; I'm just gonna say this film takes a different tone which, IMO, makes it far easier to watch over and over. It's a no-brainer purchase for me.

i was lucky enough to see an Academy DVD screener. I thought the movie plot-wise followed the same old formula...but it's the strength of Bridges and the rest of the performances, the songs, mood etc, everything combined that makes the movie great.

We watched this blu-ray tonight. Excellent film, superb acting and highly recommended blu-ray presentation. The music is excellent also - just sit back and give it a chance - it may speak to you.
