What have I been up to in my spare time for the last 1½?  Bonding with my teenage daughter.
 
Surprisingly she wanted to watch an almost 35 year old classic.
 
Rocky.  You have to understand that when I talk of watching a movie made before the mid-90’s both of my teenage daughters look at me like I’m a dinosaur; as if they are in wonderment about whether filmography could have even existed in such an ancient era.
 
Of course watching Rocky lead to viewing the entire series of films spanning 30 years.  We have both thoroughly enjoyed Rocky thru Rocky V (she learned what Roman numeral IV stands for).  We have yet to make it to Rocky Balboa, the 6th in the Rocky franchise.  Maybe we’ll squeeze it in this week, maybe not.
 
Regardless, even with the relative simplicity of the movie as compared to similar in the same genre, it was endearing with more wholesome values than most fare out there.
