Not to long ago I was asked by a good friend of mine,”Hey Jew, why don’t you do a Top 10 review of your favorite movies?” It’s a good idea I’m surprised I didn’t think of it earlier. Well here they are, everyday I will review one of my top movies starting with number 10 countdown style:

#10. Rocky IV

Directed By: Sylvester Stallone

 

Written By: Sylvester Stallone

 

Starring: Sylvester Stallone, Talia Shire, Burt Young, Carl Weathers and Dolph Lundgren

 

Anybody who is anybody has seen the rocky series, if you haven’t then what’s wrong with you?  Just kidding nonetheless it’s a great series. Rocky IV though is one of my favorites and because it’s good ol fashion badassness, the Drago (Lundgren) Fight was the best in the series in my opinion. Here we have a Superman type boxer against a regular man who has heart and the ability to never give up and I like the feeling of that and it gives motivation in real life. Rocky IV shows you where dedication and hard work can get you.

 

As for the film the story is pretty simple yet complicated Rocky’s best friend Creed (Weathers) gets killed in the ring by Drago in an exhibition match and he feels responsible because you could have stopped the fight to save his life. So he decides to fight Drago in Russia and it becomes this whole USA VS Soviet Union type deal but not for Rocky he just wants avenge his friend, it’s personal. Some of my favorite parts of this movie are the training parts, Drago trains in this high-tech facility with red lighting and Rocky goes balls to the wall training he gets whatever is lying around and uses that to train not to mention the iconic running to the top of the mountain and yelling DRAGO!! out the top of his lungs. The other characters pretty much fall back in this movie Paulie (Young) is still the caring A-hole and Adrian (Shire) still the concerned wife and Rocky’s main motivation. The score (by Bill Conti) in this movie also always makes me want to go out there and work out and gets me pumped up all of these things combined with nostalgia really make this movie one of my favorite movies.
