i've tried to freeze frame a couple of times but i couldn't see anything. has anyone here who have the dvd noticed this? i really need to see a cap of it if anyone wants to post it. thanks.


I went frame-by-frame and it's definitely there, but it's at 2:22:45. The frame right before the one posted is a more extreme "x-ray" as the flash bulb goes off. It lasts for five frames before resuming color.

no other filmmaker achieves the kind of coolness that the one contained in a hidden shot of a skeleton in the middle of an oscar bait biopic...this oozes coolness...

and i may be in the minority but i actually enjoyed the movie much more on dvd for some reason...it looks so....clean...

I enjoyed the movie more the second time, on DVD, but mostly cause i think this movie has great replay value.  the first time i didn't know what to think, but this is my favorite scorsese picture since goodfellas ( edging out bringing out the dead).  

and i did see the skeleton...its pretty easy if you just FF at 1/4 time.

Though a good movie, Million Dollar Baby will be forgotten in a couple years as it is just a standard weepy movie.

The Aviator will join the ranks of the Academy's long list of missed opportunities (2001 losing to Oliver!, anyone?).

2001 wasn't even nominated for Best Picture.

I think the Aviator definitely has much more longevity than Million Dollar Baby. I, for one, think Mystic River is much better than Million Dollar Baby. Sure it was a nice film, but does it really add anything to the spectrum of film making as a whole?

and does it matter anyway?
If I could move the night I would
And I would turn the world around if I could
There's nothing wrong with loving something you can't hold in your hand
You're sitting on the edge of the bed, smoking and shaking your head
Well there's nothing wrong with loving things that cannot even stand
Well there goes your moony man
With his suitcase in his hand
Every road is lined with animals
That rise from their blood and walk
Well the moon won't get a wink of sleep
If I stay all night and talk
