Rocky II

Rocky II ★★★★

I feel like a Kentucky Fried idiot 

Okay but for the longest time I always considered this to be the best Rocky movie, but it isn’t. While it’s my favorite, its pacing just bogs it down. Cause the first nearly half of this film is just rocky dicking off. A lot of it has something to contribute to the story, such as him trying to find a real job, but a lot of it is fluff. The first movie had fluff too, but it was a bit more necessary to introduce the audience to these characters and the setting. This is way more fun than the first imo. Rocky and Apollo’s press conference is quiet possibly one of the funniest film scenes of all time
