I love Rocky! I saw the original in the theater back in January of 1977. The movie had come out the month before but I had never heard of it as I had lost my dad in late November 1976. My aunt had suggested the movie and took my mother, brother as well as myself. It was a much needed diversion. I didn't know what to expect but I walked out in pretty good spirits considering. Of course I've seen it again in the years since and I have always enjoyed them. He may have become a bit cartoonish in the later movies but they were always a good ride. I have not seen Creed yet tho but I have heard good things.
