I've always loved the ROCKY movies but I've long been stuck in the analog era. So it was only a few years ago when, for my birthday, a friend gave me the "Rocky" series on DVD.
I was thrilled to introduce my then-girlfriend to the films, and over a couple of days, we marathoned them. After the (still great) fourth film, I pop in the DVD for part five, knowing it's the weakest of the series. For some reason, the DVD, labeled "Rocky V," is actually another copy of "Rocky IV." I kept putting it back in to see if it would play the proper movie again, but nope - completely labeled "Rocky V," but actually "Rocky IV."
At the time, I was willing to skip part five for marathon's sake, and I didn't give it a second thought. "Rocky V" is kind of terrible, and most of what it's trying to accomplish occurs in "Rocky Balboa" anyway. And besides, I now had two awesome copies of "Rocky IV." I might rather want two copies of "Rocky IV" than one of "Rocky V."
Now it's years later, and a weird feeling hits me: I want to see "Rocky V." I want to own "Rocky V." I want the complete set, and I want to get together with the friend who originally purchased the movies, to do one more proper marathon (he's seen none of them!).
At this point, I've got an old boxed set. Is it worth communicating with the studio to send me the proper DVD, maybe send back the faulty "Rocky V"? Is it worth a shot to try to personally write Sly Stallone, just for the sake of why nots? Or should I just be content that I will forever skip over "Rocky V" and keep enjoying 'Rocky IV"?
First world problem, I know.
