I see Sylvester Stallone is getting another shot at the title, 30 years after his first "title shot" in Rocky. This one:

http://movies.yahoo.com/movie/1809278368/info actually looks like it may replay the magic of the first one. I am actually going to go see it. WHat do you all think here? Spill your opinion about Rocky! Do you think he wins, or is it cheesy or what?

For those who don't know or wasn't here on earth, Rocky came out originally in 1976, 30 years ago. I was 11 LOL

IMO, rocky was cheesy from the beginning. stallone occasionally does good comedy though.

Had the opportunity last night to see the World Premier of Rocky Balboa two months before it will be released. A great movie. I was impressed with it, in fact the storyline is something we will all appreciate. I am looking all over the internet right now to see if I can find the two speeches Rocky gives in the movie, that gave me chills. One was to the commission, when he tries to get his boxing license, and the other to his son. The acting is great, the storyline as stated before is great, the cast is well put together as well. This is Stallone's best acting ever. The only downfall, I thought was the soundtrack, as Mason Dixon (Antonio Tarver) entrance music to the fight is great, and of course the theme to Rocky is great, but other than that the soundtrack was not good at all. However as we all know we cannot judge a movie by its soundtrack. This is a must see!


Well, hey, if George Foreman can do it...

Yeah, I'll be there.

Watching it again I get he feeling that stallone wants to try and finish the series with a little respectability. The first was the movie that he wrote for himself that launched his career and honestly is a classic. The 2nd I felt was just as good.He's probobly not real proud of the last few and he wants to finish it with a quality movie...not something half ass designed to make a quick buck.

Rocky is the only fighter in the history of the sport that got smarter the worse beating he took.

Not realy that silly..He has enough money. He doesn't have to do anything. Sure the production company is motivated by dollar signs but I don't think he is at this pointe in his life.

The funniest Rocky line was when he told Tommy Gun in the last one.. "Hey Tommy there's law against ducking" lol When did Rocky EVER duck!

Okay, so I just got back from seeing the movie, and I liked it. Of course I'm one of the biggest Rocky fans anyway. But with all the nostalgia topics and talk about getting old, it was very timely. I thought the movie was made well, and very little of it was unrealistic, imo. There were several good speeches, like Marie telling Rocky to do whatever he wants to do, and later when Rocky was talking to his son. The flashbacks to the old movies were tasteful and meaningful. It even had my wife sniffling a couple of times. I won't say if I was. Anyway, I liked it. Might have to go see it again soon.
