Raquel Stecher once again joins James on the podcast to complete their conversation about the Rocky series with bits and baubles about Rocky IV, Rocky V, and Rocky Balboa. How much of a role does nostalgia play in the enjoyment of the Rocky films? And does that even matter when sitting down to enjoy a film franchise? As we weave our way through the decline of Rocky, we talk Dolph Lundgren's unholy bench press, the inexplicable creative decisions behind Rocky V, and the sweet and sentimental coda to the franchise. We play the inaugural "Hot Minute of Cinema Shame" game and wax romantic about training montages.
James David Patrick (@007hertzrumble) - Host, 80's nostalgist with a Rocky IV soundtrack constantly spinning in his head.
Raquel Stecher (@QuelleLove) - Classic movie blogger, workout and training aficionado.
