You should check out the very extensive (and quite entertaining) question-answering he did about Rocky et al on Ain't It Cool News, which, unlike the majority of the content on there, makes for...

Well, yes, the subject matter doesn't particularly interest me (even though I've recently studied it) and I don't have any fondness for Gibson as a filmmaker. In short, I have no reason to see it. It...
