Punch a Hole in the Rocky Steps?

If you are from Philly, they are not the Rocky Steps, but the Art Museum Steps. The steps were there long before Sly Stallone had Garrett Brown use a prototype of the Steadicam to run up the steps for breathless montages of panoramic views.

It's time to start re-evaluating 1976, since it was essentially the year our modern world was hatched. I was skeptical too, but it's true.

In a nutshell, I call bullshit on excuses for a living. And I'm pretty damned good at it. So how come I can't do the same for myself?

Stage Door: Rocky, All The Way

The politics of the acts passage are fascinating, underscoring just how amoral the process can be. Morality and right may be LBJ's battle cry, but it's not shared by Southern Democrats, whose playbook of obstructionism and charges of socialism, sound like today's Tea Party.

Aladdin and Rocky have opened on Broadway back-to-back; the critics have seen them back-to-back; and, more crucially, early audiences who generate all-important word-of-mouth will see them back to back. While the subject matter seems to place the shows in different categories, they both appeal to the mass audience who grew up with the two films as cultural landmarks.

It turns out that Rocky is better than the Spider-Man, by several notches in the proverbial heavyweight belt. The Cinderella story, such as it is, is durable; and the sure-to-be-much-talked-about staging of the climactic boxing match more or less delivers the punch of excitement required.

Maybe I don't understand what courage is anymore. I sat in a movie theater recently, listening to people of all ages applaud and cheer when the key character was drinking excessively and stealing other people's money. I don't think either one of those things is worthy of cheering. Am I wrong? Did I get taken by the Rocky montages of the 80s, believing that courage comes from facing fear?
