Remember when most of us were saying things like “This is just another Rocky sequel” and “Do we really need this?” Well, we were very, very wrong.

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.


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.
