It was the best Rocky film I've seen since the first one! Sure, the third and fourth installments have some off the wall characters like Clubber and Drago, but Rocky Balboa had the best story and the most heart of any film in the series besides the opener. You really feel badly for the Rocky character given what he's had to go through since we last left him. His wife has died, his son isn't close with him and he's considered a "has been" by industry standards. His personal journey in this episode is powerful and one most of us can relate to. I won't give much away, but it's truly one of the best sequels I've seen and the perfect way to end the Rocky saga.

Honestly, 10/10 - I can't imagine this film being any better considering what it was trying to accomplish



I've been wondering about whether or not to see this movie. I'm going to have to check it out now! Thanks for the heads up.


I think the movie would've been better if Rocky defeated terrorism like he single handedly defeated communism in Rocky IV.

Saw II 5/10

Held up pretty well for a horror flick, in fact I caught the "uncut" version which was certainly a "cut above" most horror movies these days. I just thought the first one was much better.

Pathfinder 0/10. Don't bother. Y'know how they give out Grammys for sound and sound editing? Whoever was working on this film in either department should be drug out in the street and shot. If you watch LOST, you'll notice the soundtrack skip and hit an off note every so often. This is OK, because it's planned to help the mood. Now imagine those off notes every five seconds for two hours.

I repeat, do not see Pathfinder.

Just don't.

Seriously.

I agree, rented it last week. When I first heard about it I thought it was a joke. When I first saw the trailer I laughed. Nay, cackled. But I heard some positive reviews from friends/relatives so I checked it out. Absolutely best movie since the original. With this one flick I can forgive every bad sequel that came out. I only own the original from the entire series, but I think I'll add this one to it.

9/10

Do yourself a favor and get the uncut extended version. If you gave the tv version a 9, then it should rate a solid 10. ;-D

A Fish Called Wanda 8.5/10
Fierce Creatures 7.5/10

Had heard of them but never actually seen them. Wanda has some pretty great quotes in it. I need to memorize what Cleese says when he is being hung out the window.

Hmm the green ones aren't ripe yet! B-)

Disturbia 7.5/10
Not bad at all, but it turned into more of a love story than horror, I was hoping for the latter. There were a few cool scenes, pretty well done, don't think I'll buy it when it comes out but I've definitely seen worse. ;-D

Thanks for the tip! I'll check that one out. It's definitely one that I plan on owning.
