Peaceful Warrior

There's nothing better than a free movie. Nothing! Even when that movie is made up cheese, schlock, schmaltz, and fierce gymnastics. I'm talking about Peaceful Warrior, a movie you've never heard of and don't need to see at all. Nick Nolte is pretty much unbelievable as a Zen master warrior who trains a gymnastics star who's searching for meaning in life, as well as Olympic success. Just how did Nick get on top of that roof? We are led to believe that Nick's sheer mastery of his universe got him up there. Riiiiiight. And the gymnastics! I've got four words for you: slo-mo pommel horse sequence. Awesome! And yet, not.

Thanks to Nate's tai chi teacher, who got us a free pass, and Nate, who downloaded the other. Like I said, nothing's better than free... but sometimes, free isn't quite enough.

so, I don't get it.
I love gymnastics, though.
Was it better or worse than "Stick it"??

I actually read "Way of the Peaceful Warrior" a few years ago. I don't know why. What a crock.
