A to Z Blogging Challenge: Movie Memories
Blogging about the movies that made an impact on my life
People are always surprised when I tell them that Rocky (1976) is one of my favorite love stories. For me, it's all about Rocky and Adrian.
They had a lot to overcome in their personal lives...she was shy and insecure; Rocky felt that he was just a bum with nothing to offer. But they fell in love. Like Rocky said, "they filled gaps."
The story of the making of Rocky was like the story of Rocky himself. A low-budget movie that came out of nowhere becomes one of the most amazing films in history.
My favorite scenes:
Rocky and Adrian's first date at the skating rink.
Mickey talks to Rocky about being his manager.
Rocky and Adrian's first kiss.
After the fight when Rocky calls for Adrian. This clip shows the end of the movie and we see that even though Rocky "went the distance" with Apollo in the ring, it was all about his love for Adrian. That's all that mattered.
