    Re: Rank Rocky - Best to Worst

    I remember when they put Rocky II on network tv for the first time. I was a kid, and I had no idea about the ending. So.... I had seen Rocky 1 maybe a few month before, and I was actually pissed Rocky lost. So... when the final fight comes on... and they both go down.... I remember feeling exactly like Mickey and Pauly.. begging for Rocky to get up.... and then he did... I jumped up and down and hugged my dad, my brother, and my mom and called my grandparents at 11pm to tell them that Rocky won. (Thank God they lived in Central time zone!)

    I remember seeing the original Rocky in the theater. I remember the TV ads for the movie comparing Stallone to Pacino, DeNiro and Brando. Stallone never lived up to that hype but the movie was so good it really didn't matter. I remember during the fight the whole theater was into it and afterwards there was some confusion on if Rocky or Apollo won the fight but that really wasn't the point.

    Rocky was believable ......and fresh, not some studio trying to make money....they were just trying to get the movie done...
    like the first Star Wars or even Rambo. After that..... Rocky and Rambo was a stupid cartoon which mirrored the 80's and how the USA was back.

    Watching Raging Bull 4 years later...... you just feel Rocky is a joke after the 1st one, but it fits for what it is and what people wanted.
