ROCKY (dir: John G. Avildsen, PG) - Michelle says, "There are a few original dudes in Hollywood. Sly Stallone is one of them. Not only did he write this, the best sports movie ever (like he wrote and directed almost all of the other five films in the series), but he also pretended to be a really stupid loser in it, so convincingly that you know him best as that guy who bellows 'Adrian!' like a wounded gorilla whenever he’s not running around Philadelphia, training with some screaming grey-top leprechaun named Mickey. Whatever, you’ll be out of your seat, yelling 'Rocky! Rocky!' in the last scene, just like everyone else who watches this. Because the Italian Stallion is never better than he is here. Unless he’s fighting that terrifying Russian, Dolph Lundgren, in ROCKY IV. Or that time when he fights Mr. T in ROCKY III. Or in OVER THE TOP, when he plays a trucker arm wrestler. Anyway, if you really don’t want to watch this, just go to Philly and watch all the idiots running up the stairs of the art museum and jumping up and down when they get to the top."
THE BLUE BIRD (dir: George Cukor, G) - Greg says, "George Cukor made a lot of great movies, including HOLIDAY, THE PHILADEPHIA STORY and BORN YESTERDAY. But he saved the best for his last film, THE BLUE BIRD. More stars than the night sky populate this historic co-production between The Soviet Union and The United States. Liz Taylor, Jane Fonda, Ava Gardner and Cicely Tyson are all part of the magic. As are the Leningrad Kirov Ballet and a bunch of pigeons spray-painted blue. Aly and I watch this so much it’s ridiculous."
OBSESSION (dir: Brian De Palma, PG) - Greg says, "Yeah, it goes a little over the edge with its VERTIGO references. At some points it feels like a remake. And yeah, Cliff Robertson might have been asleep during some of his scenes. But what other legitimate criticism can you make of Brian De Palma's first masterpiece? It's got a brilliantly eerie score by Hitchcock's man Bernard Herrmann. The way Vilmos Zsigmond turns his lens on Florence and New Orleans should have won him the Oscar he got two years later for CLOSE ENCOUNTERS. A youngish John Lithgow oozes sinister southern charm. And the fragile, haunted Genevieve Bujold is the movie's heart, even as the plot grows increasingly outlandish. Almost nobody would agree with me that this is better than VERTIGO, nor would I expect it, but open minded viewers will recognize its righteousness."
