Ok, while I was at work for the past couple of days and dealing with an issue that had potential major implications for national defence I had to discuss something of even more import with my opposite number elsewhere.

They dared proclaim that Rocky IV is the best Rocky movie. Clearly anyone who isn't on a severe amount of drugs recognises that in fact it is really Rocky III which is by far the superior entry in the series.

Not that I feel I have to remind any of you of the reason why, but here are some of them.

The soundtrack. Eye Of The Tiger practically defines 80's cheesy rock while Burning Heart is but a pale imitation.

The bad guys. Clubber Lang is played by Mr T. He is an animal who sets out to destroy what is put before him. I pity the fool who stands in his way. Ivan Draco... well he is at best a pretty boy. No real heart to win, just a product of the system he was brought up in.

The deaths. Micky's heart attack is way more touching that Apollo Creed's predicatable death.

Anyone care to play Devils Advocate and support the losing side that is Rocky IV?

No, Rocky III is better than Rocky IV, for all the reasons you say, & that robot Paulie gets in IV is creepy.

Rocky 3 is better then Rocky 4, but I think that Rocky 1 is the best of all of them

So, you've never seen RAGING BULL?   THE SET-UP?  There are at least a handful more great boxing movies...

I love RAGING BULL. But I don't care for the ROCKY movies. I just don't care for Stallone. His best movie for me was DEATHRACE 2000.

The only boxing mogie I watched was hunprhy Bogart's last film.  I don't recall the title but it was about how crooked boxing managers. Exploit and rob boxers after using them up.

You have a good memory; I do too.  I can't remember the name of that one either, but you are spot on.  That's a great example.

The original ROCKY is the best (by far) in the series . ROCKY IV is one of the worst mainstream movies ever made.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
