I saw "Rocky" last night for the first time mostly
I saw "Rocky" last night for the first time mostly out of guilt for never having seen it before. It's always tossed in with the other great films from the 1970s, the most eulogized decade in film history, so I thought I might be missing something.
It's hard to explain what this movie means to me. Words could never. I remember when I was a kid, I never liked the first Rocky, was too obsessed with III and IV. It happened when I was 11 and I went to see V in the theater. I never been to a movie like that before. People were screaming and cheering. Shook the whole damn place. They were dancing in the isle's and celebrating. It was then I realized the true power of Stallone's vision. The realization that only the original would ever really matter.
