Another movie that took me too long to watch, this time I at least had Anchor in the same boat as me and my dad and Buckett kindly joined us for their rewatch. This movie is inspiring, especially that montage, which I thought wouldn't live up to the hype, but it did and then some. I've always thought this movie was about boxing primarily, but that's just the way to tell us a rich, deep, and interesting story about love, friendship, status, regret, and so much more. Everyone gives it their all, but Stallone surprised me with the range he showed in this movie. This is a masterpiece that will surely stand the test of time forever.
