'Rocky' is on Netflix, now

Any Philadelphians worth their weight in wooder ice already own the commemorative VHS and DVD collections of the first five Rocky films. (NOTE: Some people throw out Rocky V. But, really, it's good to keep it around to hate-watch when you're angry drunk.) The problem with tapes and DVDs, though, is they don't really have a place in the office/classroom/SEPTA train.

'Rocky' is on Netflix, now

All Philadelphians worth their weight in wooder ice already own the commemorative VHS and DVD collections of the first five Rocky films. (NOTE: Some people throw out Rocky V. But, really, it's good to keep it around to hate-watch when you're angry drunk.) The problem with tapes and DVDs, though, is they don't really have a place in the office/classroom/SEPTA train.

Enter: Netflix.

The streaming giant has added Rocky and the first four sequels in the series to its library. From Vulture:

"Rocky
Sylvester Stallone's Oscar-winning underdog tale arrives to Netflix with four sequels in tow (all but 2006's Rocky Balboa). Relive the classic fights the training montages (specifically Rocky IV's :chopping wood in Russia” sequence) and the culturally significant music cues (from Bill Conti's “Gonna Fly Now” theme to Frank Stallone's “Take It Back” to “Eye of the Tiger,” inseparable from Rocky III)."

The River's Edge
The Robe
Robinson Crusoe on Mars
Rocky II
Rocky III
Rocky IV
Rocky V
Roger Dodger
The Running Man
Scary Movie 3
Scoop (available April 16)

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go watch Rocky IV—I mean, um, scour Twitter and write stories, like I'm being paid to.

Check out the full list over at Vulture.
