    I dunno, kind of kills the whole thematic thing with Rock being a bum now. Besides, like you don't know what you're getting into the minute Conti's Gonna Fly Now kicks in.


    And yeah, I thought the same thing about the 360. Well, I was thinking about it more in terms of EA Fight Night, but yeah.

    I nearly laughed when I heard about Rocky 6. Then, Sly was going to write and direct, and he did the same with part 2, so I reserved my judgement.

    After watching this trailer, I need to see this movie. I really liked the dialogue from the teaser, but this trailer shows that he knows what year, and what typr of tecno-reliant age we're living in.

    I can't wait.

    I sense this film will have train-wreck viewing potential.

    My first thought at seeing this thread:

    "JANET!!!"
    "BRAD!!!"
    "JANET!!!"
    "DR. SCOTT!!!"
    "ROCKY!!!"
    "..."

    Yeah, I'm weird.

    Its wonderful to see that Rocky still hasn't lost his ability to block incredibly hard punches with his face.

    I do agree that the trailer was pretty well made.

    I saw the trailer yesterday and I'm very interested in seeing this in theater.

    With my schedule I have precious little time to see any movies in the theater anymore. This is one I would like to if I get the chance, but more than likely I won't see it until it hits video. But it does look pretty interesting, and the concept of a computer simulation sparking a real fight... how cool an idea is that? Go Rocky.

    I really hope the movie doesn't start out sticking to close to where Rocky was at the end of V. The idea that he'd be so poor that he'd be back to his old job is ridiculous, even if the unseen lawyer/accountant made off with every dime he had in the bank. He's Rocky Balboa, the guy who won the biggest sporting event in history! Companies would have been parking truckloads of money on his lawn to get him to do endorsments.

    It's well known that Apollo Creed was inspired by Muhammed Ali, so any thoughts of who Mason "The Line" Dixon might be, if anyone?

    It looks like a mix of Superman Returns and Talladega Nights. Does that make sense? Probably not, but its still true.

    Because a fighter has never lost all his money before.


    Except, you know, Mike Tyson, Joe Louis, Foreman before he got back into boxing again, Riddick Bowe I think was trying to get into the Marines at one point... just because Ali and Holyfield managed to hang on to their cash, doesn't mean everyone else did.

    You know, I loved Rocky. So-So on Rocky II. Liked Rocky III. Think Rocky IV was instrumental in winning the Cold War. And, actually don't mind Rocky V. When I heard they were making a new one...I wasn't enthused. Yet, I saw this trailer....and man, that is one well made trailer. It's got me interested. I would like to see this movie. I think it's got potential.


    And, I've never seen Stallone so comfortable acting. It's like Sly's acting career is what this movie is about.

    I don't know if anybody likes AICN. I really don't because it just seems so negative, from the stories down to the posters. But, somebody actually had a good post there the other day. It said that basically, in the 80's, when a lot of us were kicking around, and being formed....we treated guys like Sly, Arnie, Van Damme, Seagal, and Chuck like GODS. Then, tastes matured, we grew older, and we almost villified these guys. I mean, most people spit venom at everyone of the guys, or they've turned Chuck Norris into some kind of freak show. (And this interent fantasy of Chuck Norris is nothing more than a cruel joke....like making fun of the "retard" kid, but watching him laugh and making you feel okay that you are clickin on him.)

    Basically, it said, yeah, maybe these guys weren't A-list talent wise...but entertainment wise...these guys delivered in some great way that we don't know why. Maybe it's time we give these guys some respect, and not dog them. There was some simple way they entertained us, and maybe we should try to find that again. I'm sure I'll get roasted and blasted for the statement, but, there is some smoke to that statement's fire.
    We'd like to wish EZMOHR all the best in his future....ah forget it.

    Stallone might have even had A-list talent wise. Keep in mind, dude won the Academy Award. It's just it was way easier, both in terms of pathos, and on the pocketbook, for him to become a megastar than a good actor.

    What's funny is, you can even see it in his later pictures. Go watch First Blood. The first one, not the second. It's hard to watch now without the second movie in your head, just because it turned Rambo into such a cultural icon. But there was some genuine acting in the first movie, at least at the beginning and the end.

    But like I said, one way or the other, that was really one well put together trailer.

    It actually looks like it might work for the same reason the original did. Rocky's almost certainly not gonna win, but you want to see if he can hold his own, want to believe he MIGHT have a shot. If Sly actually wanted to do this, and puts the effort in, it might not be half bad.

    I find it ironic that Antoinio "Magic Mouth" Tarver aka Mason Dixon is going to once again get his ass handed to him by an old man:D .

    Foreman did it. Granted, Foreman was 15 years younger than Stallone when he took back the title.

    I was talking about the whippin' Tarver took from Bernard Hopkins ( 41 years old ) last month. Talk about an ass kicking, he didn't even win one round.:evilsmile
