You can draw parallels and say Sly and Rocky have crossed paths in a way...through their passion for golf.

Im lucky to have the scrupt with me. and Im glad that this movie has a beautiful ending. Even though Rocky Balboa Loses the fight against Mason Dixon it still turned out to be a GOOD film. When asked why did Rocky decide to Lose the fight? Stallone said that realistically, Rocky just wanted to go the distance, and he did! If Rocky would have won then there'd be rumors of another Rocky Movie, and I want this one to be the final chapter, therefore that's why i chose that Rocky must lose...Well that sounds very realistic to me and im there the first day...

für alle deutschen fans:
Wie uns '20th Century Fox' nun allerdings mitgeteilt haben, hat sich die Wartezeit verkürzt. Anfangs wurde ja schon spekuliert, dass der Film bereits im Februar nächsten Jahres in Deutschland erscheint, nun ist es offiziell: Rocky Balboa wird am dem 08. Februar 2007 hierzulande in den Kinos zu sehen sein. Wir müssen uns also 2 Monate weniger gedulden, eine gute Nachricht für alle Rocky-Fans.

Whether you're from US, Canada, Europe or elsewhere please support Sly and Rocky by signing the following which will be sent to Sony/MGM to ensure the film is released WORLDWIDE on December 22nd - rather than the strange spread out schedule that would lead to piracy and will make the box-office gross plummet:

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/749234240

We have talked to Sony and they have said that they will take the idea into account if the numbers were significant enough.

Everyone please sign this and reply so that as many people read this post and sign the petition by it remaining at the top of the boards.

Do you think his cable show "Contender" had anything to do with this? Maybe put a little fire in him and got the juices flowing. Back to basic morality and ethics, just like the picture. I'm not a hype Sly fan but Rocky has always been about heart and is his Cinematic stamp on the world we live in.

Adrian dies. He starts to fight because of the emptiness left inside of him.

I love the Rocky movies. I love the character and the others created by Stallone. He is an underated writer.

"anonymous" (previous blog) is obiously very short-sighted, and cannot see nor comprehend the utter beauty of this modern-day adaptation of the classic self-written (& directed?) film; which, incidentally is not merely another "remake" among the crowd, but an altogether NEW and different movie. While the concept of the film is timely, the nostalgic setting reigns as the actor shows himself to be bold & quite impressive. P.S. I bet you wouldn't call "Rocky" a 'bum' to his face!

Would'nt it be cool if:

So they are at the press meeting and everybody is making fun of rocky, on and on and on, and as this keeps going Rocky and his corner get more and more quiet. So the crowd starts asking rocky to speak, suddenly. Rocky says "back when I was a nobody I'aint got any respect from all of yus, when I lost it all I'aint got any respect either, at least now that you call me an old man ......well I guess some things never change, so you want me to say something here it is" Rocky takes out a pair of glasses and some notes, "excuse me, my sight aint what it used to", Laughs and continues "here I got some interesting facts, the kid's last 4 oponents have never gone the distance, they each didnt fight more than XX fights before fighting the kid" Mason Dixon shouts "Who you callin kid". Rocky says "Excuse me Mason, I am sorry but please let me finish" .....So on and so on, Rocky gives a small analysis on Mason's quickness and abillity but also details how Mason's previous contenders dont measure up to Apollo, Drago and Clubber lang and how this is very important in defining a true heavyweight, . "And to finish I would like to ask my good friend (Seargent, or whatever millitary rank Dargo has) Ivan Drago, Chief trainner and Director of the Russian Olimpic Boxing team, to help me in a little demosntration". The crowd starts wispering, and as Drago comes out they begin to applaude, Rokcy walks over to Drago, Drago and two technitians bring out a machine similar to the one used on Rocky 4, and Drago says with his Russian accent "this is the xx 1000'whatever' used in trainning to meassure fighter's punching power", "when our fight in russia took place the power of the hardest punches we both took averaged around (some number) newtons per inch(or how ever that is meassured)". Now Rocky please show us what you got now. Rocky takes position and punches the thing, it damn near breaks and it machine meassures generously above the figure introduced by Drago. Drago says "Of course current champion is more than welcome to try".

Mason shouts "anytime anywhere, I will be sorry when I break your damn machine thou" but his trainners and managers start sayin how this was not a circus and all should be solved in the ring (obviously they are a little afraid of revealing that Mason's power might be lower than Rokys') the press starts saking questions as Masons corner tries to calm Mason down. A reporter suddenly says (Seargent or whatever...) Drago would you climb in the ring to fight rocky. Drago takes a second as the conmotion seattles " If I was (the) kid..." pause and very seriously says".....Niet!!!"

The press room is filled by the press shouting out questions to Mason, Mason's corner refussing to answer or let MAson answer. Pauly asks Rocky "we done?". As they walk out Rocky says to Drago "you think they bought it?", They both begin to laugh. Outside Rocky turns to Drago and says "You really wouldnt get in the ring with me", Drago turns to him very seriously and says "Of course not, we are friends now, wouldnt want to embarass you" they both lagh and hug each other.

Ok, I know its not professionally written and there are typos, also the slang, accents and so on are not well defined but I think this could be a good scene. Also as Drago says Niet the "Going the Distance" part of the sound track could start adding to the dramatic effect.
