One of the greatest movies of all time...

"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

Ok, I am going to begin this review by saying that when I first saw Rocky a few years back, I didn't really appreciate it for what it was and what it was trying to show to the viewers worldwide but now after re-watching it (as well as the rest of the sequels back-to-back which I hadn't seen before until just after I watched this one again), my eyes were opened to how awesome Rocky really is.

"“That charming scene in the skating rink when he and Adrian are all alone – the reason they’re alone is…they couldn’t afford the extras! It actually made the scene work even better because it’s so sweet and tender that way.” -Robert Osborne “There is Stallone the actor and there’s Stallone the icon. And Stallone I thought was a very good actor. One of the best performances Stallone ever gave as a pure actor was in Rocky. He’s really wonderful, really truthful.” -Alec Baldw"

" Notes: 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, in contrary to what Sylvester Stallone did for the rest of his career, it is not really an action flick. Indeed, except for the last 10 minutes with 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 actually pr"
