Rocky Balboa
« on: December 20, 2006, 08:19:45 pm »
I liked it. I found it somewhat sad, but overall I thought the moral was quite good, and though he didn't single handedly defeat communism or anything in this on, it was still a nice cap to the Rocky movies. I may have to pick up the series when they add this on to it. (Wow its hard to talk about this movie without spoiling it).

I have not seen the movie, but just from watching the commericals I'm pretty sure I know how it's going to end.

That would a good movie.

I'd rather see a more digstown scenario, where he has to fight all his past conquests to make it to the top.

I haven't seen it yet, but I'm a huge Rocky fan and I'm really looking forward to seeing it, hopefully it gives a better end to the series than Rocky V did and it has the advantage that it can't really be any worse than the previous two movies.

Slight spoilers, maybe:  I also hear that his wife isn't in this one, so at least we don't have to put up with any of that "You can't do it Rocky!" crap.

Rocky has to fight zombie Apollo Creed?

That's pretty funny though, I've been saying for a while that Rocky 7 will be against Zombie Creed.

You idiot. Rocky VII is Adrian's Revenge!
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

I've never seen a Rocky movie, but I really enjoyed this movie.  There were some parts that I thought could have been different, but overall, pretty good.  I don't know, boxing rocks my socks off.

There are six Rocky movies? I've never even considered watching the first one!
I'll pass this one. Seeing Sylvester Stallone beat the reigning world champion is just about as cool as seeing Clint Eastwood seducing a woman 30 years younger than him.  :-X

At the very least you should watch the first movie, it's truly a classic.  I'd also recommend the second and third movies, they're great continuations of the story.  Four is okay, assuming you really enjoyed the previous ones, but five is just awful, one of the worst movies I have ever seen.  I'll comment on six once I've seen it, but like I said before, it really can't be any worse than the previous one and so far I've been hearing good things.

You really should get around to checking out rocky I it is a classic we got it on DVD at home and the ending is good its not just an underdog nobody beats the champ.
