Fabulous Movie Reviews®

Rocky Balboa
Probably the sappiest movie I have ever seen in my entire life. Still, though, it was 10 times better than Rocky V. It may be better than Rocky II or Rocky IV, but, honestly I don't remember either of those two very much.

Rocky III has always been my favorite. I saw it at the Strand Theatre with my dad. "It's the eye of the tiger..." I drew Mr. T. cartoons in my notebooks for months and even made a Mr. T. puppet in art class.

I liked how they worked the flashbacks from previous movies into this one, even if it did contribute to the sap factor.

Two things that I would like to point out as good qualities of this movie. One, he did not end up having a romantic relationship with the not unattractive single mom half his age, and two, he didn't win the fight. If either of those two things had been different, I would have hated this film, but instead I say, it's not bad. 2 3/4 stars out of 5.

The Science of Sleep
Ever heard of it? Nope. Didn't think so. These kinds of movies have a way of seeking my wife out. Was this one bad? Nah, not too bad. Was it the weirdest movie besides Altered States that I have ever seen? Yes. 2 3/8 stars out of 5.

I have a friend who attracts B-grade movies like a magnet. Every time I enter video shop with her I want to give her a good shaking and yell "If you haven't heard of it, we CAN'T rent it!!!"
