Welcome to Arbiters of Bad Taste! A segment on the podcast where Professional Musician, Simon Milliman, and myself discuss our favorite movies from the 80’s and beyond. First Up…Rocky 4 Director’s Cut! Here’s the movie description:
After reclaiming the boxing championship title, Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) plans to retire and live with his wife, Adrian (Talia Shire). However, during an exhibition match, Rocky’s friend Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers) is mercilessly beaten to death by hulking Russian newcomer Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren). Rocky vows payback against Drago and flies to Russia to train for a Christmas Day fight. Despite their different training methods, Rocky and Drago both wage a long and intense match.
