And also my favorite bit where he describes how long their relationship has felt in number of days.

It is of course laughable trash but I have a soft spot for watching an aging Stallone grunt and slur his way through his own version of ‘Old guy kicks a lot of ass’. Stallone‘s character spends much of his time salvaging junk from garbage bins to use in his domicile, and I was trying really hard while watching to see this as a metaphor…
