Yesterday I ran my fastest ever marathon in 4 hours and 4 minutes so felt as though todays Musical Moments had to be one of the songs I find most inspirational from my running playlist. Obviously Rocky IV is truly incredible as well!
The origin story of Arthur and his journey to Atlantis and the life he had been hiding from, being the heir to the throne. Having to come up against his half-brother and keeping both of his identities with the land and sea intact.
After seeing Creed II yesterday I could not help but think about my favourite Rocky musical moments, we all know just how great the training scenes are with a truly inspiring piece of music along with it. So much so many of the songs are on my running/gym playlist to really help you push!
Adonis Creed is the reigning Heavyweight champion with Rocky Balboa in his corner, everything is about to change though when Viktor Drago son of Ivan emerges challenging Creed, pushing emotions to the limit.
They are back for a third outing and have even more star power to go with it, Stallone leading the line for this action packed instalment.
When Russia claim to have the best boxer a machine Drago it all goes wrong in an exhibition match against Apollo Creed when he is killed in the fight. This leads Rocky to challenge Drago but must travel to Russia for the fight.
After seeing the trailer for The Expendables 2 before The Dark Knight Rises I have watched it a few times since then. For the absolutely brilliant moment we see Arnold Schwarzenegger appear with a brilliant one liner of “I’m back” . . . I think it’s just fantastic. So tongue in cheek and a fantastic moment! Also it looks better than the first film!
Lots of big names in the cast for this one! Let’s hope it’s not a disappointment. Lets face it I am very happy to be seeing Mickey Rourke in another film, my obsession could really come back!
