Crop And Save
I am a massive Superman nut, and like all movies that are quite cheesy, something that makes you forget all you worries for 90 minutes. I confess to never seeing Lord of the rings or any of the Harry Potter films or the carnal sin amongst movie fans. The Star Wars films and nor to be honest do i ever want to they have never intrested me.
I'm also a massive James Bond fan and My two favorite bonds are Timothy Dalton and George Lazenby. i tend to stray from the norm. i like Sean Connery i just am not a fan of his bond films.
I tend normally to disagree with everything double faced Janus says normally because he hasn't a scooby doo in my opinion. I'm open to comments and critism from anyone regarding my views of certain films so long as they have at least a vast knowledge of the film that i have an opinion on. Well it's goodbye from me feel free to drop me a line if you agree with anything i've said or disagree with
Rocky V (1990)
Unfairly overlooked in the Rocky Series.
Rocky V is deemed to be the worst film of the series and Stallone himself gave it a 1 rating in an interview here in the U.K with Jonathan Ross.
Whilst i understand Stallone's frustration with how the Rocky saga ended at the time. Rocky V is not a viewing experience without it's rewards.
Rocky's trip down memory lane to an empty Mickey's gym has to one of the standout scenes in the entire series and whilst the writing isn't on par with Rocky or even Rocky Balboa, you get the sense that Rocky V is back to basics and this is how it life would be if Rocky was a real everyday person and shows the struggles of how he and his family have to adjust everyday life, and how Rocky struggles to reclaim the life he once had, and the father/son relationship that deteriorates, due to Rocky spending all his time trying to live his life through his new protégé.
Whilst the eventual climatic final street fight between teacher and trainer might not be on a Drago or Creed level, you still find yourself rooting for Rocky and hoping he can fix what he has unknowingly broken.
Ignore all the reviews that it's poor continuation of the Rocky saga. It tries to get back to basics and for the most part succeeds.
My advice, give it a chance.
