I know its actually quite hard to believe that the Rocky legend turns 72 today!
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!
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.
Father’s Day is fast approaching Sunday 17th June 2018 . . .
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!
As you will always already know if you follow my blog I absolutely love Sport in Film. I work in sport and find the film appreciation of that to be something special at times.
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.
