Things I Like: Rocky (1976 Film)

While the following sequels go up and down in quality, the original is easily the best. It was so good that it won the Oscar for Best Picture in 1976. It's not exactly a boxing movie as it is a movie about what's more important in life.
It's a bit strange watching the film after seeing the sequels. Ah Rocky and Adrian before they got all spoiled by money. Admit it, it's true.
And talk about a dorky look for Adrian. I liked seeing the parts where Rocky made her open up to the world.
And Mick is probably the coolest angry old man in history.
And the fight against Apollo Creed is legendary. Such a great ending as well.

Yeah this was easily the best of the series, Mick was great, most angry old guy ever.
