Rocky Returns To Battle Senility, Maybe Also Dementia


When stuck for something to post about, it's always a good idea to turn to CNN online. And today they didn't disappoint. Apparently, Sylvester Stallone has offered to donate the statue of Rocky to the city of Philadelphia and house it at the base of the museum steps that he runs up in that iconic scene from the first movie. (Remember? All those kids cheering him on? I don't see that as a likely scenario today. Tyson would probably eat one of the kids.)

Anyway, the city said no. It's not art, they tsk-tsked. It's a prop. Now, that's kind of cold. Frankly, Philly should jump at all efforts to promote the city. BUT, what was most surprising about the news item was that the statue was donated in order to promote ANOTHER ROCKY MOVIE.

WTF????

Yep, Sly is dragging his saggy man boobs and leathery complexion back into the ring for one more go around. Who's his opponent, Tanya Harding? His mother?

Not sure this is a good move, Sly. Probably better than Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot, but still not good.

Oh my! In a particularly ironic sense of marketing . . .they could make it a campy boxing musical and call it "Rocky Horror Picture Show VI". I'm sure the conflict between cross-dressing transsexual singers and testosterone laden meat heads would surely spark a riot or two. If you can't get good press . . . go for bad.

I thought the same things...

Turns out the movie might be ok. Pre-release buzz is pretty strong at this point.
