a 1976 sports drama the tells the story of Rocky Balboa an uneducated but kind heart debt collector for a loan shark in Philadelphia who later gets a shot at the World Heacyweight Championship. Sylvester Stallone co-wrote the script and starred as Rocky. The movie was so successful it's spawned five sequels...so far!
Would be a great road trip! Drive from the Alberta, Canada / Montana border to the Arizona / Mexico border with plenty of amazing stops along the way, like Yellowstone National Party, the Rocky Mountains, and the Grand Canyon.
I hate boxing. But this is a movie that isn't about boxing. It's about someone who happens to be a boxer. And its brilliance has never faded. It still brings a lump to my throat at the end every time I see it.
Minimalist movie poster - Rocky (1976). Rocky Balboa, a small-time boxer, gets a supremely rare chance to fight the heavy-weight champion, Apollo Creed, in a bout in which he strives to go the distance for his self-respect.
