Merry Christmas to all those celebrating! Happy belated Chanukah! I don’t know when Kwanzaa is, but happy that, too! And, of course, a wonderful Festivus to the rest of us.
If you’re like me, and I know many of you are, please do yourself a favor and see ROCKY BALBOA as soon as you can.
Rocky I-IV are four GREAT movies. Rocky I was the genesis of the modern sports film (underdog proves everyone wrong, gets the girl). Seriously, it set the stage for so many movies over the past 30 years. (Note: Rocky V never happened)
Don’t go in expecting something as terrific as Rocky. But what you’ll find is a really nice send-off for the character. Plus, you’ll leave the theater shadow boxing and humming Bill Conti’s classic “Gonna Fly Now.”
