The guys take a leap off of the top rope with Randy "The Ram" Robinson in Darren Aronofsky's brilliant 2008 film, The Wrestler. Despite the terribly depressing tone of the film and the way that it ends, they search for some redemption in the small moments that Mickey Rourke's character manages to find, and how those moments are what make the film such a terrific one. The wrestling connoisseurs of the group break down the legitimacy of the wrestling scenes and they compare the film to the much more popular genre of boxing films.
