~All Time Favorite Movie Challenge~
When Ky announced this challenge I had no hesitation as to what movie I was gonna do. Anyone who knows me, Knows ROCKY is my all time favorite movie. I will watch this movie over and over again. In fact I have to admit there are actually 6 Rocky Movies so I'm claiming all 6 in this challenge. Why? Because I can't choose just one Rocky movie. That's like saying pick only one part of ya body, ya don't need the rest. I will warn ya I can go on and on about Rocky. But here's what I will say about it being my favorite. Each Rocky has a life lesson in them. Such as... Go for it, Nothing is Real if you don't believe in who you are, It ain't over 'till it's over, Just to name a few.
I also enjoy knowing how each movie was made. The first Rocky was on a very limited budget, So much so that Sylvester Stallone asked his first wife to take the pictures as they were filming. He used mostly family such as his brother Frank Stallone who plays the street singer. He had to sell his dog Buckus because he couldn't afford to feed him. Once Rocky made money Stallone went and retrieved Buckus. The turkey seen was extremely funny knowing that Sylvester only had enough money to buy one turkey. Which meant they had to have someone in the alley to catch the turkey "Pauley" the character tosses out the door. Luckily they got it in one take.
Sylvester Stallone also made film history with Rocky. He found it easier to start at the end of the fight and work backwards. This way the brusies and swelling was consistant. Going from 1st fight to the last, required perfect palcement of bruises and such and he couldn't be sure they would be consistent.
Like I said I could go on and on with Rocky because it's my fave. I might one day write a behind the Rocky tid-bit entry one day.
