About a year ago I picked up a ' Rocky ' box set from my local thrift shop. It was a cheap looking thing containing the first five 'Rocky ' films. The price was right though, only $3. I saw ' Rocky ' when it first came out at a crowded screening in Toronto. The audience was enthusiastic and into it. And so was I. It was a bit cheesy in spots perhaps but I enjoyed it. ' Rocky 2 ' was a huge disappointment. A regurgitation of the first one. Totally predictable and lacking the charm of the first outing. And that was it for me and ' Rocky '. Never bothered to go see any of the next three sequels. And then I bought this box set. Over the last three nights I watched ' Rocky 3-4-5 '. Geez Louise, these are awful.
