Rocky’s Return

Yesterday, I saw a screening of the new Rocky movie, Rocky Balboa. I plan to write something on it before the December 20 release. Bottom line: It’s good!

Quick thought: Isn’t the original Rocky theme song, by Bill Conti, magnificent? It still sends a shiver down my spine. Yesterday, at a press event after the screening, Sylvester Stallone said: “The music is maybe 50 percent of the success of the film.”
