Rocky the Movie – An Undercover Love Story

16 May

Rocky ‘n Adrian

Ok! So you think Rocky you think the “Italian Stallion” or that epic scene of him jogging up those stairs. Notice how I speak so nonchalant > those stairs? Anywho. This weekend the BF glued into Rocky the movie as it was showing on TV. My first thought was great, a guy movie. But all of a sudden, Rocky was having his first date with Adrian and being totally into her and that’s where I glued in. Adrian’s character was wearing this cute little beanie and oh my! I must have the UBER cute glasses she was wearing. Her character was in Rocky’s apartment and he was enthusiasticly showing off his childhood pics. Now Adrian had never been in a guy’s apartment before so she was ready to dash out but Rocky came up to her, kissed her and the rest is movie history.

I feel like I wasted my Rocky-viewing days as a youngin’. The entire time I was focused on Rocky the boxer, not Rocky the lover. While everyone recognizes Rocky’s love with his infamous “Yo, Adrian!”- my favorite part of the movie is when Rocky accepts to fight Apollo Creed for the Heavyweight Championship belt. Rocky attends a press conference introducing the match but before he steps off the podium, he says:

“I just want to say hi to my girlfriend, OK? Yo, Adrian! It’s me, Rocky.”

Giving your girl a shot-out on national TV definitely showcases your mad love. And “It’s me, Rocky” – just in case Adrian unexpectedly forgot his name. Call me a hopeless romantic but I totally fall for cheesy lines like that…they give me goosebumps. Unfortunately, I didn’t finish watching the movie because I had to go celebrate my momma’s day, but I haven’t stopped thinking about the tender love scenes between Rocky and Adrian, truly an epic movie romance that never occurred to me.

In conclusion, I just want to say hi to my boyfriend, OK? Yo, Frank! It’s me, Nancy.”


Uptown Girls

19 Apr

Brittany Murphy and a very young Dakota Fanning captivated me in this film.

Uptown Girls isn’t a movie that will change your life but to watch Dakota Fanning and her amazing talent or Brittany Murphy, who’s characters are always so colorful, keeps you glued into the film.

It wasn’t chick flick night, nor was I expecting to watch over an hour of TV last nite as I had a truckload of HW to complete.

But there is something magnetic about Brittany Murphy that you just don’t want to sway from.
