If you want cheering in a cinema, try being the guy with the English accent in a Glasgow cinema during a showing of 'Braveheart'!

I liked the early Rocky films as they showed Sly could hold his own on screen. (I like 'Paradise Alley' too). I've always thought Stallone's greatest strength was (generally) knowing what he was good at and doing it. OK, there was 'Oscar' and 'Stop or my Mom will Shoot', but I can gorgive him those.

Apparently even during the 1980's some of the Soviet Special Forces guys were into Rambo as they saw him as a real hero.

As for not hearing of people... my TKD sabum once mentioned Muhammed Ali to the class and nobody had heard of him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

:...and i didnt like the guy he was teaching.




Alas, do not be too harsh on him. The man playing Tommy "The Machine" Gunn was none other than Thomas David Morrison.

Tommy Morrison, as he was better known, became a real life heavyweight champion in 1993 by out pointing George Foreman for the title. He lost the belt in his next defence.

He was forced to retire from boxing when a standard pre-bout medical showed that he was HIV positive.

He would later serve 14 months in prison for weapons charges. He was pulled over by state police for some reason that I cannot recall, and apparently he had enough firepower in his trunk to level a castle and then some.

He has been released for several years now and is determined to concentrate on acting. He and his wife had a son a few years ago, and his life seems to be going well.

One more final interesting fact about Morrison, he is the real life grandnephew of some movie star, a fellow called John Wayne. Never heard of him though...

Wow, didn't know all that..Thanks..However, I thought he looked familiar in the movie and his fighting seemed like he was trained in boxing...Glad to hear things are going good for him...

Didn't Morrison actually have a couple of fights after he was confirmed positive?

I seem to remember everyone wearing goggles and gloves.

i meant the culture of generally cheering at a cinema screen and shouting and stuff which apparantley goes on.




Not really. I clearly remember cheering at the beginning and end of all the original star wars movies, all the indiana jones movies terminator 2, and the end of the first Matrix.

I think part of what has changed is that its been a long time since a film has been made that is good enough to generate a true emotional response in the audience.

In response to the other post, i firmly beleive that anyone who hasnt heard of Ali needs to be slapped upside the head, and then forced to watch his fights and interviews. No excuses.

it would be ace if everyone knew about mohhamed ali, i'd love to hear some use the arguement "he can't be champ, he's too damn ugly to be the champ" in real life, that would just be brilliant.

YO ADRIANNNNNN!!! I'm so excited I almost wet myself. Pics, teaser trailer, interviews..........
http://i.1asphost.com/RockyFan/rocky6.html

He looks amazing!

I am glad that they are going with a more drama type feel again. This was present in Rocky I and II, but disappeared in the later versions with more of the development of a ''villain'' which I didnt like, The Count of Monte Fisto ( Apollo Creed) was just a champ trying to win, he had honour and dignity....

Also Talia Shire is making an appearance, just a short appearance as her character is meant to be deceased. Did you know Sly has his own magazine... no one was really interested but it contained the entire Rocky 6 Script in installments a few years back. I've read the opening scene which was Rocky and his boy at his mother's grave.

I cant belive that Clubber Lang (Mr. T) is taking the Apollo Creed, ex. opponent trainer role! He has aged a lot... I think he is cut rather than muscular now, but still in great shape.

BTW Did anyone notice that Rocky got exponentially smarter through the Rocky movies? Check the trailer, he really thinks about life and stuff now!

Who else is excited?
