Rock solid

One of the most inspirational films of all time. Rocky documents a good-for-nothing bum who borders on the destitute side of life. Rocky has no prospects. He is broke, he works as a hired goon for the local loanshark and he even disappoints as a boxer. None of this sullies his good nature though and he remains a proud man with morals. The object of his desires is the sister of his best friend, Pau... read more

"Apollo Creed vs. the Italian Stallion. Sounds like a damn monster movie."

The Rocky series may have ultimately degenerated into a flashy, soulless boxing franchise, but this first instalment is unlike the majority of its follow-ups - it is a remarkable, heartfelt, inspirational sports drama and a poignant character study concerning the determination of one man. It's easy to dismiss... read more

While I tend to agree with the general consensus that this movie shouldn't have beat out other films like All The President's Men or Taxi Driver for the Best Picture Oscar, I still consider it my favorite of the this particular year.
One of the reasons is just the nostalgic connection I have to this film. I remember watching this first installment of the Italian Stallion series as a child,... read more

Rocky Balboa is a struggling boxer trying to make the big time, working as a debt collector for a pittance. When heavyweight champion Apollo Creed visits Philadelphia, his managers want to set up an exhibition match between Creed and a struggling boxer, touting the fight as a chance for a nobody to become a somebody.

"A classic in every sense of the word. A down-on-his-luck boxer, with no hopes in life, gets the opportunity of a lifetime to compete for the Heavyweight championship. Sylvester Stallone's gentle drama of a simple man with no real ambition who gets that lucky break. A brilliant ensemble cast leads to a heart-racing finale. A worthy Oscar winner, it set the bar for other boxing movies, including the montage training scenes. Charming and exciting in equal measures."

My Top 10 Favourite Movie Scenes (10 movies items)

"The empty stadiumWhile most people would point to the training montage (rightfully so – don't get me wrong), this is the moment that really sums up the movie for me. It's when Rocky first walks into the stadium where he'll be fighting Apollo, and it's so enormous that it makes him – and us – feel incredibly small. As he looks around the cavernous arena, he finally realises exactly what he's getting into. As he says in the following scene, he realises he can't win. But if he can at least ma"

"18.2. HBOlta huomasin myös kaikki Rockyt olevan siellä (Creediä lukuunottamatta), joten päätin ottaa projektin alle ja katsoa. Ensimmäinen Rocky oli oikein miellyttävä urheiludraama. Kaikki oleellinen on varmasti sanottu tästäkin jo vuosia joten eipä tässä turhaan jaksa paskaa jauhaa."

1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die (1970's) (158 movies items)

" Notes: When you think about it, in contrary to what Sylvester Stallone did for the rest of his career, this movie was in fact not really an action flick. Indeed, except for the last 10 minutes for the final showdown, the rest of the movie is actually a rather grim drama. It was also rather funny to see Stallone having so many dialogues especially compared to what he did in the last 30 years during which has been usually blowing up some stuff or demolishing someone's face. Personally, I always "
