Love letter to Rocky

Heartfelt 80s dramedy with the release of Rocky III at it's center. Multiple storylines are almost too much but the director makes them work. Watts and Cannavale give their usual solid performances but Frank Grillo shines. I have become very impressed with the way Grillo can make seemingly impossible acting tasks look believable and he really comes through again. Keep 'em coming Frank.

Not an adventure movie

This movie went nowhere except right to more woke propaganda. The movie is really about a confused son who is trying to figure out if he is a cross dresser or not. That is really the movies core element including the ending. The is a movie about a boy who is confused his mother promotes his behavior and his father is caught off guard in the end looking the evil father. Don't watch it even if it didn't hide itself as an adventure movie it it s still a bad movie about cross dressers. Go watch rocky horror picture show or that Wesley snipes movie if you wanna get your cross dressing fix. If you are looking for a good 80's movie about adventure try Summer of 84 a movie you won't feel wasted your life.

A heartfelt movie by Ronny Kyles

This is a exceptional movie great comical feel. A feel good movie for the whole family. It has a message that the whole family can take away from a message of acceptanceThe film is thought provoking and evokes emotions to the viewer.

This film lets you have a strong take away message for family acceptance and living your best life and not caring what others think. Doing what truly makes you happy and not being afraid to follow your dreams and follow your passions.

The powerful takeaway message is face your fears and do what makes you happy.

Worse than Rocky V

In the summer of 1982 an entire neighborhood is caught up in the premiere of Rocky III. Naomi Watts deserves better. So does Method Man.
