Rocky: Resurrected



I recently watched the new trailer for Rocky Balboa, the supposed sequel to the final Rocky movie. Apparently after seeing that, in a boxing video game, Rocky (in his prime) would defeat the new champ, Rocky gets the itch to get back into the ring. Knowing this, the new guy challenges Rocky and blah blah blah. Training ensues and you get the rest.

Sylvester Stallone just turned 60. 60! Granted, he's in good shape, but I mean come on, who are they trying to fool? And the plotline? I can guarantee that Rocky does the usual training techniques, yells unintelligable slurs with blood dripping down his face, comes back from being down, and ends up miraculously winning in the end. The formula is old and worn. Are there any non-sequal movies coming out at all? I'm so tired of seeing the same old junk.

I am really looking forward to Lady in the Water from M. Night Shyamalan, it comes out next week I think. Suspenseful, original, and eye catching. Sign me up.

Come on dad, you know that the rocky movies are all time classics. I am sure that everyone would see "Star Wars 37" if it came out just because it is a "star Wars" movie. No difference really! Love ya!
