His whole life was a million to one shot.  This week we go the distance with Liam's choice of Rocky.  Join your favourite transatlantic film review crew – Ian, Liam, Ellie, and Georgia – as we head to the bustling streets of Philadelphia to catch oranges and run some steps.  We're in deep training for our 31st episode as we discuss:

  • How many Stallones are in this film
  • Who else was up for the role of Adrian before it went to Thalia Shire
  • What cinematic innovation was showcased for one of the first times in the famous theatre steps scene
  • How profoundly problematic some of the scenes in this film are
  • What were some of the last minute budgetary changes that changed scenes for the better
  • The closure of Cineworld and the delay of No Time To Die
  • We talk about our upcoming Halloween episode and how you can be involved in deciding what we review for a special Oct 31st episode
  • Whether or not Rocky is the Best Film Ever.
