"Rocky Balboa"

I saw it last night. The film works as a nostalgia trip, and absolutely on no other level whatsoever. A laughably weak script that Stallone probably wrote in three or four days, a lackluster villain, and the fact that WE'RE WATCHING A 60-YEAR-OLD MAN FIGHT! are among the biggest pitfalls.

But you know what? It's a lot of fun hearing the music, and seeing the montage and the steps again. It's worth seeing if you're a Rocky fan, but years from now they'll never be any reason to watch this, when the original, III, and IV are available.

Rocky IV is still my favorite. I don't know what it is about the cold war...but I loved it!
