I know Rocky is the movie that won Best Picture and is considered to be the best film of the franchise and I get it. The movie is amazing! It’s a perfectly written story that is designed to make you feel things, namely a waterfall of tears rolling down your face, but the film in the franchise that makes my heart soar is Rocky III.
Rocky III builds upon the story established in Rocky and Rocky II and culminates into something beautiful, magical, inspiring, and something downright tear-inducing. I’ve never seen a movie quite like it before. It’s my favorite sports-themed film of all time of course and no matter how many times I watch it I seem to love it even more with every viewing.
The film is absolute perfection with some of Stallone’s best acting on full display too. And did I say this movie makes me cry buckets?
Sylvester Stallone has given us a gift with these fantastic/iconic movies and I thank him for that. I love this story.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.
