the second best Rocky? yes.
have you seen VI yet?
II - V - III - I - BALBOA - IV
that is the order of Rocky awesomeness.
II - King of Rockys. Creed v Balboa 2, improvement on the first
V - Mulleted-arse gets a street fight pounding. Micky flashbacks
III - Mr T and Hulk Hogan
I - Textbook, just not with the flashy aceness of the next films
BALBOA - Peter Petrelli!
IV - Paulie & Robot Romance. Stalone Beard
'v' better than the original!?
you're fucking nuts, man. i almost walked out of 'rocky balboa'.
I find it hard to rank those four cause I love them. History owes Rocky V some respect, revisit it, its aceness.
But Rocky IV sucks.
he ended communism in it.
was enduring the Paulie and Robot romance, then I was happier with the Red Terror.
V is one of the worst films ever
seriously. when did you last watch it?
I'd never ever seen any of them. Age 25. Watched all in order over the last 5 weeks or so, and V is ace.
So so so so so so bad
I is the best. But for pure manliness, IV pushes it mighty close.
DRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGO! on top of a mountain
but II and III improve on it. IV is toss. I really couldn't understand why V is hated so much and IV is generally liked. Yeah, Dolph's comedy Russian is ace, the fight is good, but that films dubious moralising clunks along far worse than the other films. I think.
III is ok, IV is just brilliant. You're obviously not macho enough to fully appreciate it.
BTW one night this week I'll pwn you on Mario Strikers
on it has stabilised recently so it runs smoothly now. Though I keep having to play awesome people who are totally pwning me
Rocky V was so terrible that I want to pull every last hair out of mullet guys head!
Even on the game the incarnation of Mullet Guy was the worst part of the game!
he was meant to be an ass. God I was astounded how far from crap V was considering how much everyone bemoans it.
III > I > II > IV > Balboa > V
I PITY THE FOOL
don't get me wrong.
But please, go watch V again. I'm going to campaign for its rehabilitation. Starting now.
REHABILITATE ROCKY V
snappy quote not forthcoming
why would I watch crap again? Why would I re-endure Tommy Gunn (I mean FFS, that's an awful name, it's like something from an Austin Powers film) woodening up the screen? Or Stallone do his "retard" voice?
All I have to say to you is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4NGKcsdJz0s
Rocky V is fucking terrible, not as bad as Jaws IV though
this is why I was genuinely surprised last night that it wasn't. Its aceness.
Rotten Tomatoes is a metareview thing anyway, so if the blinkered public generally despise it, then it gets a poor mark. So its the public that is wrong, not Sly's film making.
Anyway. Empire agrees with me.
