how not to watch "rocky v"

1. do not watch this movie in HD, unless you have a fetish for strong direct lighting on the skin of a 60-year-old actor pumped up with human growth hormone.

2. do not watch this movie if you're expecting this is the opportunity for burt young to win his well-deserved oscar.

3. do not watch this movie if you've just had a two-hour discussion with a screenwriting professor who chastized you over how a great movie should "show" and not "tell", and to do the opposite would be storytelling suicide.

beyond that, it was fun.
