??????????????????????????????

I had to go with 2 even though it's just a continuation from 1 i love both those films.

But 2 wins for the training and inspirational scenes. (and music)


Otherwise my rankings look like this

rocky 2 (classic)
rocky 1 (classic)
rocky balboa (great ending)
rocky 3 (a fun time in the 80's)
rocky 4 ( a fun over the top time in the 80's)
rocky 5 ( Just like Pizza, even when it's bad it's kinda good)


So 2 FTW for me

Great topic! Rocky 1 is my favorite. All of the Rockys (except for 5, which was the worst waste of my life before Jar Jar Binks) were good, but #1 is just perfect. I love the fact that he loses. We follow the whole movie learning about him, seeing him change and grow and get stronger, only to see him ultimately "fail." That's sort of poetic, I think. Plus, I like how the movie is less about boxing and more about life. My ranking:

Rocky 1
Rocky Balboa
Rocky 2
Rocky 4 (I love Dolf!)
Rocky 3

I watched it and got the chills.

Its awesome when you have seen something more times thank you can count and it still has an effect on you.

Rocky 1 was a perfect 10 IMO.

Rocky 2 a 9.5

Rocky 3 a 7

Rocky 4 a 7

Rocky 5 a 4

Rocky 6 a 9

I voted Rocky Balboa.

It's a tough tie for me. Rocky and Rocky Balboa are pretty much equal to me. On the one hand, the dynamic of Rocky and Apollo is the highlight of the entire series, and Mason Dixon can never live up to that, however, I felt the story of Rocky Balboa, maybe for feeling more relatable in ways, was more compelling. Rocky was great, the underdog wanting more for himself and to prove to himself that he's got what it takes, but Rocky Balboa's struggle to find something to live for and move on for and to escape the torture of his wife's passing and rising above it all really gets me everytime. I'll admit, there are 2 moments in all of Rocky that no matter how many times I see, no matter how much I know it's coming, I cry; one's when Adrian's come out of the coma and tells Rocky to win against Apollo in 2, and the other is about halfway into the training montage of Rocky Balboa when he goes back to punching the raw meat and goes from unable to do any of his routine to nailing every excercise he's tasked himself with, very inspiring stuff.

Joking aside, one of my favorite moments in any workout montage is when he's trying to lift up the cart with Paulie, Adrian and Tony in it and he's struggling and his shoulder veins are popping out like crazy and he's screaming and finally gets it up over his head and shouts out in triumph, awesome stuff.

For me its a tie between Rocky 1 and 4.

But if there is 1 movie i can watch over and over again its Rocky 4,best training sequences ever made,and the match itself is over the top,you get really pumped watching this movie.The movie starts after Apollo`s death,when its all about Rocky vs Drago,anything before the Apollo vs Drago match is quite booring to watch.

MaulFan
08-13-2008, 07:02 PM
If I were to guess, I'd say Rocky 4's votes don't come from the overall film, but probably because it had one of, if not the best, fights in the entire series, as far as the actual punches and all, nothing beats the Apollo-Rocky dynamic, but Rocky vs. Drago was a great fight to watch.

Same here... that movie rocks... even if the story is a bit flawed. Best fight of the series for sure, and best villain.

Still, Rocky 1 is the best to me... with Rocky Balboa second, then Rocky II, III, IV and finally V.

RB is a close second though, really a phenomenal film. I see them as two halves of a single whole... not separate.

Plus with 6 of them, you can take up a 12 hour day worth of TV. It's a perfect series for marthon's, long enough to fill the day but short enough not to have to ommit any entry.

I had held off a long time watching Rocky 1. It was shocking (SHOCKING!) how fantastic it was. It's staggeringly good. Nothing like I was expecting. I thought it was just another uplifting underdog sports movie, similar to the rest of them--which is fine in its own right. But the first one is so much more--such an incredible drama, romance and character study. If I ever catch it on TV, I'm still impressed at how good it is.

3 and 4 worked well. (entertaining as hell) If they tried to be like 1&2 they probably wouldn't have worked that well. 3 was perfect cause with Hulk hogan and all, WWF was getting huge at the time. And 4 with Reagen as president and the whole cold war theme.

It's almost as if every Rocky had it's place just perfectly. (i mean the early 90's did suck ala rocky 5 :))

MaulFan
01-07-2009, 07:40 PM
4 to me is the best fight, in terms of physical assault, in the whole series, 1 and 2 are the best for character relationship and all, but in terms of watching, 1 really didn't cover the fake punches well.

In terms of watching a fight where the guys kick each other's ass, I'd rank them:

4
6
3
5
2
1

Rock83
01-07-2009, 07:45 PM
6 had the worst fight,still pisses me off every time i watch it...the damn effects,ah man why sly?!?!?!

1 and 2 is the perfect underdog story,but 3 is one i consider extremly important that could have ended the saga perfectly,not because of the hype or Mr T,Hogan but because of the message it gave,if you loose faith and are broken down,anyone are able to and deserve a fresh start and get back on their feet,its not over as long as you breathe.

3 is my fave fight cause Rocky just came in and kicked his ass. He got the eye of the tiger back and just kicked his ass. He was never losing in that fight, he just let clubber hit him to wear him out. (he did fall twice, but the way he came back out of it RIGHT AWAY makes me debate if that wasn't part of the "Strategy" as well)

6 had the worst fight,still pisses me off every time i watch it...the damn effects,ah man why sly?!?!?!

Some of the effects were weird, but I just felt the punches had more intensity, it was the only only Rocky fight where I actually thought the were pounding on each other, plus not hard but they were really punching in that one.

I do love Rocky 1, but my biggest gripe is that he loses by decision. I know he won a moral victory, but that loss bugs me.

Rocky 3 & 4, what can I say, I'm a child of the '80s. When the Russians start chanting for Rocky, I get all teary.:monkey2

I find the ending to Rocky I so moving its not even funny, he wins his respect at the end of the film. "I just want to go the distance with Apollo" " I don't want to be remembered as just another bum from the neighborhood" He goes the distance and then some, he accomplishes all he wanted and has Adrian in the end.

Perfect ending and story. Just my 2 cents though. Rocky is one of my all time favorite films.

Which is why, as much as I'd have liked a win, the ending of Rocky Balboa was equally perfect and the connection between films was powerful. It wasn't about winning again, it was about proving that he could still fight and that his career was a sham or anything, and unloading the emotions balled up within himself. Admittedly, I tear up at the end of the fights in 1, 2 and 6, how can you not with "yo Adrian, I did it!" and then when Paulie and Jr. send him back out to bid farewell to the crowd in 6.

Like i said earlier,the first 2 rounds and the last were great,looked like a real fight live.But when the music started it all went down for me,felt like that he thinks that even at his age,he wants to prove that he can follow the youth and the digital world,and he really overdid it.Just like Rocky 5,Rap music was the thing in the beginning of the 90s,so he had rap songs in the movie:lol

Rocky I is on my top 10 list of all-time faves. I love it and the soundtrack too. The 1970's had some great flicks and great soundtracks too!

Rocky for me is the best but love all the sequels except 5.

Rocky 2 has the best training montage. Win Rocky win
Rocky 3 the best villain plus mickey passing away. I still get a lump in the throat when that happens
Rocky 4 has aged the worst and the story is very silly, but it's still fun to watch. Everytime I watch it I'm hoping Apollo will pull through.
Rocky 6 Is a great film. I loved the ending when he walks out not caring about the result. It's a very motivational story that deals with how one can find the strength to cope with loss.
I do like the street fight in Rocky 5 though

I watched parts 1-6 (minus 5) yesturday and today. Part 2's training montage IS one of the best, I agree but part 4's is awesome too. Part 6 had me all choked up, just a great film.

Exactly. It's my least favorite of the series, but it's still a Rocky movie, I don't ignore it's existence, it does have moments and some classic Paulie lines, "Hey junior, your plumbing don't don't leak..."

To the original. Maybe Im just partial to the first cause it ROCKED! but I felt the sequels failed to capture the heart and feeling of the first.

"Merry Christmas,yo,yo,yo"
Rocky -"Its Ho,ho ho"
"Whats the freakin difference,where i come from its yo yo yo,get out of the way let Santa Sit"

And he sits down watching tv:lol

Oh o.k. I see what you're saying but you have to admit part VI brought some of that back. Still I agree with you "Rocky" was the best of the series and one of my all time favs.

As a kid Rocky 3 was my fave, but having watched all the movies again recently (except 5... stinky movie I pretend never existed) I still find Rocky Balboa to be the one i get the most out of.

Agreed,
Rocky 4 feels more like a musical to me.
Rocky 3 has the Hulkster.
Rocky 2 he wins
Rocky 1 is classic

Rocky 5 has....."Eric" from Entourage as bully #1?????:lol
