Tonight I took Dad and Erik to see Rocky Balboa. Overall I liked the movie a lot. I thought that many of the things that critics disliked I really enjoyed. I like movies with a plot. I didn’t need to see Rocky fighting throughout the movie. This was a movie that Sly had to make. This movie shows Rocky going out with dignity. Rocky 5 did not do that. Rocky 5 was the worst of the series and should be removed. Rocky Balboa was a very good movie in my opinion. I liked the things that Rocky said, maybe it was sappy and nostalgic and hokey but man it made me feel good to see this movie and that is what you want with a Rocky Movie. You want to be lifted up by the heart of Rocky. And that is what this movie did. Yes there was a lot of reminiscing and exposition and very little of the fight. The movie was about the fight and it wasn’t. It was about Rocky coming to terms with things changing and not letting it change him. I was thrilled to see the montage of training and felt it could have been longer. The fight was great. I wont say what happened at the end but it was well worth watching. This was a great capper to the Rocky Series.

    I am defintely going to have to check this movie out. I don’t have a lot of faith that it will be good but Rocky V did leave a bad taste in my mouth. Who’s genius idea was it to cast Tommy Morrison. I bet they had to name the character Tommy Gun so could remember his name.

    What is Tommy Morrison doing today?

    For the positive view check out

    For reality

    After his retirement, Morrison spent 14 months in prison on drug and weapons charges, and he would later also plead guilty to drunk driving.

    He and his wife have 4 children; they currently live in rural White County, Tennessee, where he is seeking a return to acting, and doesn’t rule out the possibility of fighting again. He is currently penning his autobiography and has recently signed a deal that would see a movie produced on his life

    On April of 2005, Morrison admitted in an interview to using steroids, both before, during and after his boxing career was over. He has since, however, claimed that his positive HIV test was a false positive and, as of mid-2006, was seeking a state that would license his proposed comeback. He is rumored to want a fight with Mike Tyson

    At least 90 percent of all critics are noodleheads … I just loved this Rocky, and thought it was a great way to erase the execrable memory of Rocky V .. that said, it’s now definitely time for Sly to hang up the gloves while he’s on top
