ROCKY

Adrian! Yo, Adrian!  Released back during the Bicentennial year of 1976, this film, written by and starring Sylvester Stallone, introduced a figure that turned out to be as iconic as he was simple: beef-punching Rocky Balboa, the original stairmaster. Watching it so many decades later not only gives a glimpse of a hungry but ultra-confident writer and actor, but also a good look at the Philadelphia of more than 35 years ago.
