Southpaw (2015)

The sports movie seems to be an entity that has been in decline in the last ten or so years. Give or take a few broader themed exceptions such as The Blind Side, The Wrestler and Foxcatcher,¬†it has been slim pickings for fans of the genre (of which I am one). Boxing and cinema have…

Inside Out (2015)
