READER POLL: Which Rocky Movie Is Your Favorite??
I have always been a fan of the ‘Rocky’ franchise, while admitting that I really have not cared too much for the last two installments.
Still, the films fairly represent the periods in which they took place, and I find that the storylines are just as engaging to me today as they were at the time of their release.
The television channel A&E has been airing a 2-hour documentary about the ‘Rocky’ series providing us with some great insight about the films with interviews from the stars and people who worked on the production side too. I found the documentary to be pretty insightful, and I was happy to see that most of the main characters from the series were sought out to be interviewed for the project.
All of this got me to thinking – What is my favorite ‘Rocky’ movie of them all?
So, after going back and forth and really thinking about how these films impacted me when I first watched them and how they still impact me today when I catch them, my decision is very, very clear.
My favorite ‘Rocky’ movie from the series is:
Of the group, this is the one that excites me the most today when watched. The addition of ‘Clubber Lang’ as the villain was perfect for the film. And since Mr. T was new to the acting scene, it made him very believable as a ‘bad guy’ as we have no other roles to compare him to from other films. Also, I love the role that Hulk Hogan took on as ‘Thunder Lips’ – it was brilliantly played, and certainly memorable. I also really enjoy the dramatic scenes between Rocky and Mickey and Apollo – all of them were done very well, and have left lasting memories for me.
OK, now it is your turn, let us know which ‘Rocky’ film is your favorite, and if you feel like sharing more, let us know why too.
