Virgin Movie Binge Reviews — Rocky 1 and 2

Rocky is something I’ve heard about for all my life, but to be honest, I had never seen any Rocky films. The first Rocky related movie I watched was Creed in 2015, and I thought it was a pretty good movie. Now, as Creed 2 is about to be released, I took on a project …

Movie Review – Fighting with My Family – Pleasant, Non-Demanding Fun

Fighting with my Family is a pleasant little true-life-based sporting movie leaving you feeling a little happier than when you went in.

I think this movie kept a lot of new fans from Creed I, but  also tapped into the older fan-base from Rocky IV. This movie …

Movie Review – Robin Hood

  First off, I’m going to say this movie doesn’t deserve an involved review, but I’ll tackle it anyway. It’s bad. My theater was full last night, but when talking to others after the film ended, they weren’t impressed. It’s a disposable version of the old story, adding nothing to the tale. I’m scratching my …
