This week is the Spring Break of my senior year of college.  So obviously I’m headed to some tropical beach where I can enjoy the sun and some adult beverages.  Just kidding, I can’t afford that.  Instead, I just have a bunch of free time on my hands.  So, I am going to use some of that time to catch up on some classic movies that I should have already seen, but for one reason or another haven’t.  The following is a list of movies I want to try and watch.  Chances are I won’t get to all of them, especially since I have a couple “monster” movies to watch for the Top 10 list this week. I may do full reviews for one or two of them but will update this list with at least ratings for each one I watch.  So keep checking back to see what I think of these “classics”.

Classic Movie Reviews are occasional posts in which I review a movie from the past. It might have to do with a movie coming out that week or just a personal favorite of mine. These reviews may contain spoilers.

rocky

With Creed coming out this week, I’m looking at the film that started the series.  Normally, when a film that is part of a franchise comes out, I review all of the films from that franchise.  However, giving worthwhile reviews would entail watching Rocky V again, and, well no one wants to watch Rocky V again.  I mean, come on, I reviewed all of the Hunger Games movies last week and there are only but so many bad movies I can stand.  But we aren’t talking about the Hunger Games here. Or Rocky V. Or bad movies for that matter.  So let’s get to the review of arguably the best boxing movie ever.

die hard

After forcing myself to watch/rewatch the Hunger Games movies this week (look for a podcast this weekend and reviews next week), I needed to cleanse myself with some movies I think are actually good.  Die Hard was one of those (and I’m watching Top Gun as I write this).  Because of that I’ve decided to do a classic movie review on a movie that’s actually a classic, and also my favorite movie of all time.
