A scientist (Hugh Jackman) loses his grip on reality as he races against time to discover a cure for the tumor that’s slowly killing his wife (Rachel Weisz) in 2006’s The Fountain. The story blends two narratives that run side by side. In the first, Jackman is a modern-day scientist that uses a compound developed from rain forest tree moss to treat tumors in laboratory animals, only to learn that it reverses the effects of aging; and in the second story line Jackman is the conquistador hero in his wife’s unfinished novel, who is ordered by the Spanish queen to find the Tree of Life, a fountain of immortality thought to be in Mayan territory and hidden by God when Adam and Eve were banished from Eden.
And I didn't watch the Super Bowl, but I did watch a football movie:
Football Coach Knute Rockne (Pat O’Brien) leads Notre Dame through victory and loss on and off the field in the smarmy 1940 biopic Knute Rockne, All American. The film starts with Rockne’s not-so-humble beginnings in Norway to his college heydays popularizing the forward pass as a star football player at Notre Dame. After joining the faculty, he later becomes full-time coach for ill-fated George "The Gipper" Gipp (Ronald Reagan) and revolutionizes the game with the backfield "Notre Dame Shift," executed by star players The Four Horseman. And in the famous rivalry with Army and behind at the half, he rouses his team to victory by imploring them to win one for the Gipper.
