    Rocky Series

    Tell me, which series today is able to last 30 years? I was watching Rocky Balboa a month back, a film which was be ridiculed by many when Sylvester Stallone wanted to film it. I was shocked too, wondering what has he got to offer at a grandpa age of 60?

    Nevertheless, I waited for it to be screened in the cinemas and it was finally released in December last year in the US. Of cos, films by Stallone is something that I'll never miss, let alone Rocky VI, being said to be the last part of the story. I was curious as to what will be the storyline like.

    "Rocky I" was first shown in 1976, the period of time when the US was defeated by Vietnam in the Vietnam War. Americans were at an all down period of time, and they needed someone to lift them up. Then in comes Rocky. He was such an inspiration to many Americans at that time, if u dun believe me, go grab a copy of Rocky I DVD n watch it. The film, made for only US$1.2 million, and shot relatively fast in 28 days, was a sleeper hit; it made over US$117.2 million, won three Oscars, including Best Picture, and garnered mostly positive reviews which helped to launch Stallone's career. That was the start of the whole series that will eventually last 30years.

    Not only that, as Rocky series was filmed in Philadelphia, Stallone immensely popularised the Philadelphia Museum of Art by showing his run ups of the steps during his training montages in the films. Till today, many people still reminisce Rocky's training runs, ending off withing a raise of arms in sign of victory at the top of the steps. I hope I can do that too sometime in the future.

    Below are the videos of his training montages throughout the series. I must say Stallone does love to push this body to the limits and he sure has an amazing physical ability. That's something I would love to learn from him. When my exams finally ends next week, it'll be the time to rebuild my worn out physical shape. Enjoy the videos..

    ROCKY I (1976) AGE 30

    ROCKY II (1979) AGE 33

    ROCKY III (1982) AGE 36

    ROCKY IV (1985) AGE 39

    ROCKY V (1990) AGE 44 (No training montage, cos he retired due to medical reasons)

    ROCKY VI (2006) AGE 60 (An amazing 60yr old man)
