"The 1970s action-packed, crowd-pleasing, feel-good story of the rise of a small-time Philadelphia boxer against insurmountable odds. Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone), a simple-minded bum, is a 30-year-old Philadelphia club fighter who resorts to small bouts, and serves as the strong-arm collections man for a local numbers racket run by a local loan shark. When the unknown Rocky is chosen to be boxing champ Apollo Creed's (Carl Weathers) opponent for the January 1st event, a world heavyweight t"

" While I tend to agree with the general consensus that the original Rock shouldn't have beaten out other contenders like All The President's Men or Taxi Driver for the Best Picture Oscar, I still consider it to be my favorite of this particular year. One of the main reasons is just the nostalgic connection I have to this movie. I remember watching this first installment of the Italian Stallion franchise as a child, & even at an age when I believed that the female side of our species was rife w"

“Rocky reminds me of On The Waterfront, the man who is a nobody that wants to be somebody. This is a gritty movie, it takes you on the hard knock side of life. The story is about Rocky Balboa, played by Sylvester Stallone who not only stared in the lead, but also written the screenplay. Rocky is a bum, a man who has nothing but yet wants to be a great boxer. Boxing is the only real thing that gives Rocky something to live for, he boxes everyday and wants to be a great boxer. Rocky is getting older and his dreams are not becoming real, until a prize fighter comes to town and wants to fight a nobody this is where Rocky get's his chance to be somebody. . Rocky is a great down in your luck, nothing to lose film about fighting for dreams and making them real. Rocky at times is slow, depressing b” read more

" I remember reading a thing about "Rocky". Stallone was peddling the script and nobody wanted to make it. And then whoever made it, the producer, said he's reading "Yet another boxing picture? It's like there's so many. Who's gonna wanna make this?" And then three pages in, this guy's talking to his turtles?!? Like, "What is this?" and it made him pay attention. Louis C.K. used this anecdote for paying tribute to fellow comedian Patrice O'Neal, who died in 2012. He compared O'Neal to the mo"

"Training episode To go with the mentor figure, there's the training montage which gives our hero unbelievable strength in a matter of minutes. But don't bother calling it a training unless there's an energetic sports song to pump you up. The first thing that training montages bring to mind is Rocky and its fabulous sequels, but I challenge every reader here to hunt down a movie called The 36th Chamber of Shaolin. Why? Cause this Shaw Brothers classic is essentially a movie-long training episod"

A classic

“I have already seen this flick a couple of times but I thought it was time to watch it with Nick, my step-son. Honestly, I think he was pretty bored during most of the duration, because, let's face it, I contrary to what Sylvester Stallone did for the rest of his career, it is not really an action flick. Indeed, expect for the last 10 minutes for the final showdown, the rest of the movie is actually a rather grim drama. Nick is not really big on dramas but I thought it was pretty good. It was also rather funny to see Stallone having some many dialogs 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 have some mixed feelings about the whole thing. I mean, on one hand, it is indeed a pretty” read more

Greatest Film Tearjerking Moments Q - Z (51 movies items)

"The climactic ending in which boxer Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone), after "going the distance" with Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers), ignored interviewers and press crowding him in the ring, and instead called out for Adrian (Talia Shire): ("Adrian! ADRIAAAN!") - and finally after reaching her - holding and embracing her with a mutual "I love you!" to the sound of Bill Conti's triumphant score."
