Movie Review: Rocky Balboa

What can I say but this is a great movie. Who doesn't like to be inspired? It happens rarely enough in movies these days. Hollywood typically churns out lackluster films that leave you feeling cheated out of your money. When was the last time you left the theater with a little 'bop' in their step?

Sylvester Stallone wrote and produced this final episode in the Rocky franchise. It was clearly close to his heart and in the firm tradition of its predecessors. I don't want to be a spoiler, so I'll just recommend that you see it. If you always liked The Italian Stallion, you'll not be disappointed with this movie (BTW, Sly looks freakin' awesome at 60 and will easily shame you into the gym.)
