Stallone Has a Winner!

"It ain't over til it's over." Effectively erasing the memory of the dismal Rocky V (the weakest installment in the Rocky series), Sylvester Stallone has gone back to the roots of what made the Rocky films work so well and, I predict, will deliver a knock out punch this Christmas at the boxoffice when his latest installment Rocky Balboa hits theaters. This one's a winner! I just viewed the latest trailer for the new film, and all I can say is I will be first on line to see it. It's all there. The music. The pacing. The humor. The pathos. The training. Everything fans of the series have come to love about Rocky movies. Based on the trailer, Stallone has pulled it off. Fifteen years after the last installment, he's been able to once again dig deep into the soul of his most famous creation and literally resurrect a dead series. The film is due out this December, just in time to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the first Rocky (a move predicted by Rocky psychic Paul Icolari). As previously mentioned here, Adrienne does not survive to this installment. But Paulie and Duke are back, and once again in Rocky's corner. (As are millions of Rocky fans who "ain't' heard no bell" and are more than ready for "one more round!") As the trailer says, "The greatest underdog story of our time is back for one final round!" I say, "Go for it!"

It'll supursuck and superflop. Nobody cares about Rocky or Sly.
