Real Steel is a rock-em, sock-em robot movie mash up of Rocky and Over The Top aimed squarely at 12 year old boys. But if you are one, or think like one, it's a knockout.

The Lovely Future Mrs. Hegemon--who is a big fan of both onscreen robots and Hugh Jackman--was just complaining the other day that when she mentioned Over The Top in relation to this movie, no one knew what she was talking about. So I suspect you've made her happy. B^)

Your intro is hilarious. Reminds me of the Zagat's bit that Farley and Sandler did on SNL.
