40 years of Rocky: "It ain't over til it's over"

It's the movie that tells the story of the underdog who fought his way to the top while keeping jimself grounded and true to himself - this day November 21st, 1976 saw the release of "Rocky" in cinemas - a film written and starring a then unknown "Sylvester Stallone" in the titular role of a poor yet kind man named Rocky Balboa who worked for a loan shark and fought low-level fights in clubs before making it big by being challenged and fighting boxing champion Apollo Creed in an exhibition match. The story also revolves around Rocky meeting people who would become important in his life - including his love interest and future wife Adrian and his trainer and mentor Mickey Goldmill.

Rocky 1976 Trailer

To say the film is a literal Hollywood success story is nothing short of an understatement - Rocky went on to win three Oscar wrds - including Best Picture and Best Director in John G. Avildsen. The film would spawn six sequels and spin-offs, with Stallone becoming a big star and going on to getting other acclaimed roles in cinema history - including playing John Rambo in the Rambo action films. Rocky's legacy endures in that it taps into what the humble human spirit can do when faced with the odds, fighting with determination and going the distance to prove that you have what it takes to rise to the challenge and do your best. I could say more about the film, but it would be better to watch some nostalgic revisits and reviews, including a pretty awesome one done recently by Cinemassacre and AVGN man himself, James Rolfe!

"Gonna Fly Now" is definitely playing in fans' hearts now. Happy 40th Anniversary, Rocky!

Happy 22 Years, Spider-Man: The Animated Series!

On this day 22 years ago, one of the most beloved comic book characters got a new lease in the animated series department as Fox Kids aired the very first episode of the 1994 Spider-Man: The Animated Series. That show focused on Peter Parker's college years, and introduced the flagship character and beloved webslinging hero to a new audience - complete with adventures facing the Green Goblin, Doc Ock, Hobgoblin, and Spidey's most notorious arch-villain at the time, Venom. To say that the show was a web of wonders in an understatement, and it had a shared animated Marvel TV Universe too crossing with other popular animated Marvel characters like Iron Man, the X-Men, and Fantastic Four.

If you remember the show, you'll remember the song.

Also, here are 107 facts by Cartoon Hangover!

Happy Anniversary, Spider-Man: TAS!
