Rocky Balboa from 2006 was the first Rocky film that I managed to see on the big screen at the cinema on its original release. I went back to witness it all again last week before Cineworld closed and I still throughly enjoy the sixth film in the franchise. This quote below is certainly one of the best!

Rocky Balboa has been long retired and trying to cope without his wife Adrian who had passed away, while balancing a restaurant and his strained relationship with his son Robert. A virtual boxing match which sees Rocky defeat current champion Mason Dixon, leads to a challenge and a return to the ring for the Italian Stallion.

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!
This Monday in January is seen as being Blue Monday the most depressing day of the year, that is due to the festive period being more than over and struggling through January still waiting to be paid! Therefore I decided to put together a list of 7 feel good films which I totally love.
Isn’t escapism and being made to feel happy one of the main reasons we watch so many films? Well, it certainly is for me so I thought what better day than the most depressing of the year to think about the films that make me very happy!
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!

What films do you think about when you think of your Dad and what have they got you into in terms of films? Well, I certainly have to say that for myself Arnie is an actor that I think my Dad made me a fan of! He is one of my ultimate guilty pleasures along with Stallone!
Back in September I was approached by Crock-Pot to take part in the monthly promotion they have called #Crocktober. They asked me to put a post together about a sports film that could then be used as one of the weekenders. That’s when I decided to go for The Ultimate Sports Film, picking Rocky!

I have therefore decided to try and come up with reasons that make a great sports film and then come up with the ultimate film that well pretty much has it all. Which might be easier said than done considering the high calibre of films available.
