Rocky (1976) 
Overrated, but still entertaining.
3/4 stars

I'll admit, it took me this long to actually see this film start to finish in one sitting. Everything is great about this film, the casting, the acting, the script, the cinematography, the direction, everything. But, it should not have won best picture. I repeat, not won best picture at the Academy Awards.

Throwing out Bound for Glory, I've never seen it, and quite frankly never heard of it, this year had 4 huge movies vying for Best Picture and the Academy chose wrong. All the President's Men was great, but I'm not sure if it was better than Rocky, but clearly Network and Taxi Driver were better films and in today's world of reality TV, you could argue that Network was quite prescient. This could be my next blog post...anyway Rocky is good, I'm sure I was probably the last person on Earth who hadn't seen this film, but if you are like me and waited this ling, see it.
