I wonder if Stallone dances the hustle? Or the other dance where your partner sticks their butt in your groin!

Stallone should try to display his real talents than thieve the public in anti-American whitewash! The friggun guy should narrate these nature films on the survival of the Osprey or mating patterns of the Sloth! Thanks for the memories Sly!

All you guys are talking sh..! Eastern Europe rules now! It could be southern Italy next! The World Hvwt Champ in 1959 was a Sweede! But Im telling you at the time of this movie it was unrealistic for Rocky to be a Caucasion! It was friggun propaganda at its best! That imbicile took a lot of people for their coin! In reality the clown probably isn’t even 200lbs! 5’7 doesn’t go a long way bro!

Fight Aficionado

Sounds like a horrible film. Stallone needs to give it up already. He’s like 80 years old and juiced on every version of steroids the anti-aging clinics will serve up. Even in Rocky I he didn’t move like a boxer because he’s got 2 left feet and no coordination. Watching this geyser humanoid acting like a boxer is pathetic.

Whoa! The first thing you should do my friend is switch to a higher quality aluminum foil for your helmet, the generic stuff from the dollar store you had on lay-away isn’t cutting it.

What in your way of thinking is America all about these days?…

Posted July 28, 2013 11:27 am 


Bernie

Hey Earnie, Look at all the money the Porn industry generates! Are you tring to equate success with dollars? With Reality. With Benefit to the Public? Cmon wake up? As a matter of fact before Stallone made it “big”, I think he did indulge himself with that garbage! Its guys like Stallone who have covered the American Public in a two bit illusion of what America is all about!

Posted July 28, 2013 11:11 am 


It’s Me, Ernie

Stallone’s movies have earned over four billion dollars collectively. A person of any intellect at all wouldn’t consider that to be the actions of an “idiot” and especially not the biggest one in the entertainment industry.

Your weak attempt to make some point about the amount active “white” fighters at the time made absolutely no sense whatsoever. Just stating facts here…

Posted July 28, 2013 10:46 am 


Bernie

Yo Ernie, You got the onions to comment on the “fantasy” of Rocky in that time? You sound a little amused? Aint nothing funny about that! The guy did Rocky and Rambo! That’s it! Maybe he should have done a remake of “Guess whose coming to dinner”.

Posted July 28, 2013 10:33 am

Bernie, really?…

Posted July 28, 2013 10:04 am 


Bernie

I never saw a bigger idiot than Stallone in the enterainment industry! First of all back in 1976 there were hardly any caucasion fighters around! This was politically innapropriate! Stallone pandered to a target market’s emotions! Then hes been beating a friggun dead horse since! This guy gotta do some Shakespeare!

Squared-Circle Real Talk (a.k.a. The Lion King of Beat Street)

IMO… “Million Dollar Baby” was a great boxing movie, up there with “Rocky I,” “Raging Bull” and “Cinderella Man.”

I thought “Ali” was pretty darn good too, but don’t care for Will Smith as an actor. I thought “The Fighter” was pretty good, but didn’t like how they left out the famous trilogy with Gatti. But I’ve heard rumors that they’re going to make that trilogy the main focus of the sequel. We’ll have to wait and see…

Well what about MILLION DOLLAR BABY Bustajay? I was near tears at it’s end.
Did you drink half a dozen eggs in the morning after watching ROCKY?

Posted July 27, 2013 8:47 pm 


BUSTAJAY

Look no joke…..ROCKY created Vinny Paz, it was the reason he started to box,and also motivated me to not become a fat lazy bum……HOWEVER…..The movies went downhill quickly and it is time for this crap to END.

I did cry on the last one but don’t tell nobody.

That was the year Ali fought Young. I wasn’t a much of a boxing fan and never heard of Young. He didn’t look like much, had a not so great record and I hadn’t heard that he had outpointed Lyle. So he was going to be a cherry picked loser for Ali to KO in 5 or 6 rounds. Then as I watched itYoung seemed to be winning and Ali wasn’t getting anywhere with him, was he just waiting and carrying him to the KO? By the end of round 15 I thought Young had won!
A nobody had beaten the Greatest. But of course the judges gave it to Ali. Looking at it today I guess it wasn’t much of a fight really but if Ali wasn’t Ali then Young I still feel would have won. That business about Young sticking
his head out of the ring being counted as a knockdown was a bunch of bull.
I sometimes think of ROCKY and Ali-Young simultaneously as they were both around the same time. I don’t think of Ali-Wepner which inspired Stallone to write ROCKY.

Squared-Circle Real Talk (a.k.a. The Lion King of Beat Street)

The original Rocky film (1976) was on outstanding movie with an amazing soundtrack. It was the highest grossing film of 1976, and won three Oscar Awards, including “Best Picture.”

Some may not realize the true significance of Apollo Creed wearing the “Yankee-Doodle” costume, Uncle Sam hat, and Stars ‘n Stripes into the ring vs. Balboa. 1976 was America’s 200th “birthday” and big Bicentennial celebrations were going on all over the country — especially in old East coast cities like Philadelphia, Boston and NYC.

Unfortunately, the sequels went progressively downhill, and Rocky 5 featuring Tommy Morrison was by far the worst film. It was absolutely horrible. (However, Clubber Lang and Ivan Drago were both great villains and memorable characters, as Rocky’s nemeses.)

Please, for the love of God, do not make another Rocky film!

Both Ward and Wahlberg are 5’8″. I am not sure I would care for a sequel on that anyways. Sure those fights where great but just watch the fights again. The drama outside the ring is what that movie was really about, you don’t have that aspect of that during that time of Ward’s career.

Posted July 27, 2013 4:52 pm 


Shane

The Fighter II with the story focusing on the Gatti /Ward trilogy is what to watch for. I wonder who will play Gatti? Mark W. actually looked like a fighter. Although too big for 140, they will have to find a bigger Gatti too.

Oh yeah and MILLION DOLLAR BABY. It may have been as good with a male fighter as with a female. I think if that was me I’d want Clint to do me in also.

The ROCKY movies went down hill after the first one. Seems to always be the case with sequels for $$$ of good flicks. Then another old one was REQUIEM OF A HEAVYWEIGHT WITH Jackie Gleeson and Anthony Quinn. I liked THEY MADE ME A CRIMINAL with John Garfield and The Dead End Kids, sort of a boxing movie.

Clubber Lane was the only character who made some sense in this bile-inducing series of putrid films.

Rocky will be fighting until he is 80 years old and people will be falling for his scam and watching him pull off “miracles.” Yep, very realistic boxing stuff. Maybe Tommy Morrison can make a cameo appearance.

Posted July 27, 2013 9:38 am 


Kid Blast

“Superb” Come on, James. You know better. These atrocious films stereotyped boxers as drooling mutts who call out “yo Adrian” like cave men. Stallone is a walking advertisement for PEDS and he is midget short yet acts as a heavyweight.

Real boxing fans like The Harder They Fall, The Set Up, Raging Bull, and other films that examine boxing in REALISTIC term, not in the world of Rocky fantasy.

One interesting aspect of this project called Creed is in regards to who is one of the writers of the film, and who I believe will also direct, and who is sloted to play the grandson of Appolo Creed. First, I always felt that Rocky was really a fantasy of hiaving at the time a white world heavyweight champion, one of course from the United States. One of the creators of this movie Creed, and may be directing is the Director and I guess Screenwriter of the film out now called Fruitvale Station, and the person who might be playing Creed’s grandson is the actor who portrayed Oscar Grant. The director of Fruitvale Station, named Coogler I believe has said that in making Creed, he wants to tap into the mythology of the first three ROcky films. With all those people involved, this makes for a possibly very interesting film, if in fact it is made with those participants.

After Rocky it became less gritty and more Hollywood/$$$. Rocky 2 is the movie that started me boxing and love the sequels though each one delutes the cred of the orig more and more. Rocky was an ATG movie and spawned countless new fighters . It inspired so many others that understand what it is like to be an underdog in other walks of life (obviously).

That’s right Turbo, why didn’t Klubber get a rubber match. His first win was just as convincing as Rocky’s. They protected Rocky.

Posted July 26, 2013 6:59 pm

Boxing makes for great dramatics and this could work if Rocky just plays a cameo, like visiting the kid in gym once to give support or a ring appearance. Even as a trainer it will become too much like a Rocky movie. Let the new Creed kid be the star and maybe you can give us a somewhat original story. Show him just starting out to train and a culture shock for him to fight against kids from rough neighborhoods have nothing to lose.

Balboa should be fighting the health troubles of his advancing age. You know: arthritis, constipation, ill fitting dentures, impotency, hair loss, incontinence, memory loss, slurred speech, and other symptoms of chronic traumatic encephalopathy.

I gave up on the Rocky series once the great Apollo got killed in an exhibition against a Russian, man forget it.

Balboa will have to fight. He always does, but he already pummeled one of his students in V, so I don’t think he should repeat that storyline.
