Oddly enough, “it’s like Philly…and stuff” was generally the most common response I got when I asked people if they had seen Rocky. Personally, I had never seen Rocky before having to watch it for class, but I don’t think I would have given that response. I just thought it was interesting!
Before watching it, I just thought that it would be this dumb jocky movie with a fun motivational song and theme. After watching it, I just though a lot more. In combination with the readings for the week, I realized Rocky is more than a movie and a guy who can’t really speak all that clearly. Basically, Rocky and Philly are alike in the sense that before you really look into them, they might seem pretty lackluster, dirty, rough, brash, and harsh. If you decide to spend the time and effort to check them out, however, you will certainly not be disappointed. So, I guess I just professed my existing love for Philly and my newfound love for Rocky, but I’m fine with that. Oh, there’s a little clip for everybody to check out!
