It's a great movie. Any fan of Rocky will love it. I'm telling you, if I wasn't so dead inside, I could have had tears in my eyes when the Rocky music starts blaring when he's fighting and training.

How anyone could possibly not like this movie is beyond me.

There is no way you won't like this movie. I'm leaving to go buy the first two on DVD and watch em later tonight.

Maybe it's just that I like movies about real sports and not a Nascar satire. Nascar itself is comedy enough. we didn't need an unfunny movie.

But anyway, the newest Rocky was great.

I might rent it but I won't see it in the theater. My first reaction to hearing they are making another movie was WTF!! Airplane II had it right when the showed a poster of Rocky XXXVIII. Rocky is too old and it has been too long between this and the 4th Rocky. Which by the way who saw the 4th? Where is this bout being held, the care home? The only thing I want to know is where is Adrian? You can send me a message if you don't want to ruin it for the others.

I haven't seen it, not sure if I will or not.

But I will say lots of people are against sequels.

If I like the franchise I'll watch about 10 Sequels, I guess I'm just a dork.

Looking forward to the next in the following series.

-Beverly Hills Cop
-Die Hard
-Indiana Jones

All of which are set for new movies.

I even will buy up all the silly American Pie movies, Band Camp, Naked Mile, etc.

I was unaware of a Beverly HIlls Cop 4 but it would certainly make sense for Eddie Murphy to do an adult comedy again.

They could make 10 Die Hards and as long as Bruce Willis was in them as John McClain, I'd see everyone.

Same with Indiana Jones, I mean, how bad can they be?

Question: Is any part of the movie a reminder of his "Contender" TV Show? Because I used to love that show.

Mainly, does it use the theme music from the contender at any point in the movie? I so want to download that music, however possible [EDIT: I found it if anyone wants it. It's right here - (It's Legal, straight off of the composer's website.) http://www.hans-zimmer.com/fr/media/contender.mp3 Unfortunately it is a short MP3, but you get the gist, lol]. I think I love that more than the Rocky Theme.

OK, so, just answer those questions, whomever's seen the movie. Thanks.

I'll probably just wait and rent this one. It's better than part V, right? Wow, who would of thought Rocky would be in the ring at 60-years-old and Indiana Jones cracking the whip at an even older age!

If I were you, I'd stay clear of those direct to DVD Pie sequels.


BTW, since it was mentioned ...here's the teaser trailer to Die Hard 4 for those interested:

AS if I didn't have enough to look forward too on JUly 4th. Spider Man 3, The 300, the Transformers and now Die Hard 4. Zang. This summer will more than make up for last summer in movies.

But really, go see Rocky Balboa. You're totally fooling yourself if you don't check all choked up when Rocky starts training to fight.

The Rocky Movies, in order are as follows:

1. Rocky
2. Rocky 2
2.5 Rocky Balboa
3. Rocky 4
4. Rocky 3
5 Rocky 5
