Fun fact.  Rocky won best picture and director.  But Sylvester Stallone didn't win for actor or screenplay.  

Oh, and what was Rocky V about?  I don't even think I watched that one.  

Fun fact. Tommy Morrison died of AIDS.

Is this even debatable?

It was for me. I love IV. It was the first one I saw at the theaters, and it was the first time experiencing a movie audience standing up, and cheering after our boy Rocky knocked the Russian out. I decided I preferred III though, because I love the scenes where a broken down Rocky finds his fire again with Apollo. Carl Weathers doesn't get enough credit for how good he was in these movies. Also Mr T was great as adversary.

HIV can lead to AIDS. We are talking about the same person.

Tommy Morrison - Wikipedia

I didn't know the dude was 48-3 as a boxer.

He actually died of AIDS. And it was, to a degree, his fault.

He was one of those denialist types..... didnt believe HIV leads to AIDS... decided not to take antivirals.... paid the price...





Rocky 2 is the second best. By far.

I loved 4 as a kid.... but its really pretty cheesy. Great montage... fight scenes were cool... the whore robot pauly had was cool... but like 3, it was when stallone took over, and kind of a meathead movie.

The first 2 were "films" (to sound like a prude). 5 was..... horrible.

And agreed on Carl Weathers. He was very good, especially in part 2.

Fun fact. Duke, Apollos trainer is the only guy besides stallone to appear in all the movies... and he was never actually named in the movies.

Ill say this about part 3... Mr T was an underrated bad guy in that. 


And Hulk Hogan, as the ultimate male.... named "thunderlips" is super legit.

That was the beginning of Hulkamania.     


Rocky III had some compelling scenes and storyline: the birth of Hulkamania, Mick's death, Rocky's fame softening him, and Apollo's assistance in getting back to the top.
