The Movie Rocky

The movie Rocky ruined boxing for me in the way that A River Runs Through It ruined fly fishing for some people. I saw Rocky (IV) before I ever saw a boxing match, so when I saw the real thing where people don't land huge haymakers and uppercuts on ever swing it was a letdown. It's like seeing Point Break before ever trying to catch an ankle-high wave on a surfboard or any ski movie ever before going skiing.
