Response from Head RAZZberry: Whoa! It sure LOOKS like a Contender! My favorite dialogue line: "I ain't interested in, like, gettin' mangled and embarrassed." My reponse: So why'd you make this movie, then?? Seems to me yer ASKIN' to get "mangled and embarrassed" -- by critics and Razzie voters alike...

RAZZ; Too bad there's not a Razzie category for Worst Movie Trailer...looks like we'd have a contender!

I am 98% certain ROCKY BALBOA will be exactly what we've all feared since we got word that they green-lighted this travesty!

Hey, I'm new to the Forum. I just had to register to say how embarassing it is to watch that trailer -- Stallone really has no shame...

I dont know how or why people would want to watch the entire film... although I might be intersted to see how bad it could really be  

Response from Head RAZZberry: First off, welcome aboard! And second off, having to sit through stuff like ROCKY BALBOA is one of the downsides of being a RAZZIE Member. But if the film's as bad (in a funny way) as ROCKY XVII looks like it will be, there's some amusement to be had as well...

"Let's start building some hurtin' bombs." ????????????????

Why do I get the feeling that line came straight out of one of Sly's production meetings?

Response from Head RAZZberry: Come RAZZIE Nominations time, I expect we may have a few "hurtin' bombs" of our own to hurl...

Count me out...after watching the trailer and seeing that "Let's start making some hurtin' bombs" line. I'm passing...at least until it hits the Fox Thursday Crappy Late Night Movie.  I just wonder who had to put on knee pads to get Bob Costas in this stinker...and how did he keep a straight face while doing that "greatest of all time" schtick?

Just saw the trailer. and it was down right embarrassing! I'm still trying to figure out if he lifted the dialog from old episodes of "Romper Room"!  

Response from Head RAZZberry: Actually, I think he may have lifted some of his characters' rejoinders from a moth-eaten copy of PLAYGROUND BULLY TAUNTS FOR DUMMIES...

Somebody's already seen a sneak preview / rough cut of Rocky Balboa and has posted a review on IMDB. Here's the http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0479143/board/thread/48248190 - LINK --  Sounds like another tepid, mediocre sequel...

The IMDb reviewer is complimenting Stallone on his "fantastic performance" in this movie, so I guess he won't be getting a Worst Actor nomination then...

or is it gonna be given to him anyway? 

Response from Head RAZZberry: This year's nominations will be determined at year's end -- After ROCKY BALBOA has been released. If it turns out Sly has actually managed to make a good movie in spite of all the odds, we won't nominate him for Worst Actor (just like we didn't nominate him as Worst Actor for COPLAND). But saying we're NOT going to nominate him based on one Internet review (which could well have been posted by someone with an interest in promoting the movie)?? I don't think so!

I am not sure how biased that reviewer was. He probably is a Stallone or Rocky fan, considering that a lot of people actually like rocky 2-4 (some even like #5). I wont judge it till I see it. But I think I'll see it just to see how bad it is...

I bet you 10 to 1 that #1 Sly Fan posted that review on IMDB and since in his eyes "Dah Sly Guy can do no wrong" for him he honestly thought that it could be an "Oscar Winning performance"!

We must remember however who populates the Sly Fan Base.

I also seriosuly doubt that #1 Sly Fan is intelligent enough to write a detailed review like that. And besides, it's from AICN, so I'm not sure how reliable the review is. But come the release date, we'll find out how truly bad (or good?) it is...

RESPONSE To callofduty06:

You are a correct...I doubt very seriously he could have written that intelligent of a review. However, he could have paid someone to do it for him (only kidding)!

Seriously though, after reading the review, it just sums up pretty much what I thought anyways. Stallone has squeezed the last ounce of blood from this already past dead franchise to satisfy his own self-importance. It may appease the die hard Stallone Fan (like #1 Sly Fan) who just wants to see "Rocky" get in the ring for the 100th time. But there is no realism or even sentiment as to why we should even care. I will see it for $2.00 at the mark down theater (as I stated before) but will pass on it until then. I don't want to be the major cause for another resurrection of a franchise that is long past dead, like "Mick" in the Rocky series itself.

One thing is probably guaranteed, will get a few laughs along the way out of the Sly Guy "Not embarrassing himself"!

Yo, Pitiful Stallone-Haters -- NO, it was not me who wrote that almost glowing review of Rocky Balboa on the IMDb. And I doubt it was anyone with a steak in the movie either, since not everything they said was favorable. It'll be interesting to see if the character he says everyone "hated" gets cut out of the picture.

Anyways, it looks like maybe you guys are wrong about Stallone AGAIN... And as a long-time Sly fan who was already anxiously awaiting this film's release, I just wanted to say that that review wetted my appetite even more!!  

Response from Head RAZZberry: We welcome posters of all opinions on this Forum, especially when they're as funny as yours so often are. I think you meant "whetted" your appetite, not "wetted" -- Although I almost "wetted" my pants laughing the first time I saw the trailer for ROCKY BALBOA. I, too, am now even more anxiously awaiting its release. Guess we'll find out come Christmas if ROCKY XVII grants Duh Sly Guy's holiday wishes...or ours!

YO: Quit Pickin' on Stallone!!

Okay, so I mis-spelled something...BFD. Bottom line: Stallone doesn't makes movies for self-important snots like you guys, he makes movies for guys like me. And come this Christmas, I bet you'll be disappointed to see just how many die-hard Stallone fans there still are. You'll probably go ahead and give Sly that "career" award even if Rocky Balboa is a huge box office hit. But if it is a hit, and you still insult my idol anyway, you'll look like a bunch of spoiled jerks doing it...not that you don't look like jerks already!

Nice to see you too #1 Sly Fanyou're just like your Idol:  You just keep coming back, even after swearing not to step into the ring again.

Anyways, Once again I think you are "overlooking" some of the finer details of the review of "He who can do no wrong," like for example:

"The Mason Dixon character played by Antonio Tarver is about as cardboard as can be"

"Rocky enters the ring to Sinatra singing “High Hopes” which was done for comedy, but it felt almost too silly."

"There is some stuff where it goes black and white and only the blood is red. I don’t think this works like Sly wanted it to; it just comes off as distracting"

"We see various scenes of Rocky Jr. ignoring his dad and we also see Rocky make at least, no kidding here, 4 more trips of Adrian’s grave" (I think he said 7 total in the interview)

And here is an actual line of dialog, which was my favorite part of the whole review (it had me laughing for almost 10 minutes): "She didn’t leave me Paulie, she Died!" Yo, Sly ,we sorta already figured that part out for ourselves. (See reference to the 4 or more trips to the grave site).

So, all in all, we both have different views: You see it as a possible Oscar Winner; Me, along with I believe everybody else in this forum, see it as possibly being Stallone's crowning Razzie achievement.  

Response from Head RAZZberry: Given what a whiny, kvetching character she had become through the four previous ROCKY sequels, I am torn as to whether Adrian being dead in this new movie is a good thing, or a bad thing. True, we won't have to listen to her shriek "You can't win!" 27 times like she did in ROCKY IV. But her being dead also means one less guaranteed RAZZIE nomination for the film (Talia Shire was an Oscar Nominee for the original ROCKY 30 years ago, and a RAZZIE Nominee for both of the last two sequels). Guess we'll have to hope they compensate by coming up with an awful end title song we can nominate. To tie in with Rocky's age in this film, I'd like to suggest a song title: "Gonna Fart Now!"

Guess what??? In the original http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0100507/trivia - Rocky 5 script Dah Sly Guy had Rocky Balboa killed off. But when he got ready to shoot the scene, he had a change of heart. He was quoted as saying, "It would be like killing off Superman". Typical Stallone: He can't even leave his own original scripts alone!  

Response from Head RAZZberry: I do recall reading about that when ROCKY V was in production. I think he was supposed to die in a street rumble of some kind. As for Sly's "killing Superman" remark, in his case it would've been more like "killing off the cash cow"...

Response To Head RAZZberry: It was the "Street Rumble" near the end of the movie with  Tommy Gunn (Tommy Morrison) that he was supposed to "buy the farm" after Rocky had "won" yet again (In Real life Tommy Morrison was a worse professional boxer than Stallone himself)! 

That was pretty much what I was thinking of the "killing Superman" remark, but could not find the "appropriate words" to describe it. I guess Dah Sly Guy foresaw he would have to save a couple nuts for a rainy day.

Yo RAZZ: I just got done seeing "Time to Die...or Retire" and the person who made it seems to be right on target with Stallone's career path. It was both entertaining and enlightening.

Gosh, you guys can be harsh!  Stallone even says in an interview that he understands the critisism of this sequel, but that he didn't like how #5 came out.  Many years ago I heard that he planned to end the franchise with Rocky dying, maybe you "anti" fans will get your wish.   But I personally love Rocky and Stallone (as much as I can, not REALLY knowing him) and hope you guys have to eat worms when December rolls around....

Now, Now, oh Fan of 30 Years....let us not digress down the path of your other colleague #1 Sly Fan and retort to name calling.

Also on some of the advance feedback I have gotten "We" as you put it will not get our wish, but it looks like "You" will. I hear it ended as a Stalemate as Rocky "losing" but you still here the "Rocky, Rocky" in the background as he is walking away.

Like I said before typical Stallone!

I hope that the ending is still a "feel good" ending whether he wins or not.  I hear that he filmed 4 different endings and so there is just speculation on which one he will use.  Either way, I will be there to see...

If Stallone follows his usual trend of making himself seem "immortal" then I have no doubt that it will have that "Feel Good" ending that you and the rest of the Stallone Fan Base will be happy with.

Me and I am sure a lot of other non die hard Stallone Fans would respect Mr. Stallone more if he would show some realism to the picture by shooting a more "realistic ending", however I know this will not happen and will not hold my breath, since I do not want to die either.

I don't necessarily need to see Rocky WIN for it to be a feel good ending.  I don't particularly want to see him die either, but if he dies, having succeeded in reassuring himself he isn't "another bum from the neighborhood", or something like that...I would still consider it a great movie. 

As big a fan as I fancy myself to be, I don't particularly want to see him win either...not that I would hate it, but I would like to see this movie win over more fans and there just seem to be so many people that insist on "reality" even though this is all "acting" ... I mean, you stated to me before that you were a fan of the first and second movies... "reality" would never have the world heavyweight champ stoop to fighting a NOBODY (much less demanding another fight with the same bum who already did what no one else has ever done - Go the distance) most especially someone with Apollo's ego...but it happens everyday in the MOVIES!!!!!!!!  It is a break from REAL life that builds hope and inspiration.  So the others didn't deliver as well.  So what!  It was entertainment...it got us out of our, boring, too stressful, problem riddin', lonely (whatever the case may be) worlds!  Go Rock!

Maybe Stallone will pull out a decent performance, I mean, he pulls out one every decade. ( In the 70's it was Rocky, in the 90's Cop land, in the 80's it can be argued that he was good in Nighthawks, which I never saw, but people have told me that it was one of his better roles.). We'll see.

Rocky: Mmpht rhol abber dubba mppth

  Oh Saturn, you are so creative with your comments...  Oh well, Obviously the non fans and the fans will just have to agree to disagree.  I for one am thrilled beyond words that I will be getting the opportunity to see Rocky Balboa on December 22nd.  I know I will enjoy the movie.  And I hope that those non fans that go to see it to make fun or whatever... I hope you are pleasantly surprised.

I am happy you are thrilled about it. I'm happier that I have the option of watching a good sports movie which will be released the same week. Rather than being an ego vehicle for a washed up actor, We Are Marshall tells a true story about tragedy and human perseverance. I'll catch Rocky Balboa on video sometime when I have absolutely nothing else to do.

I think I will just stay at home and watch my new HD TV I am buying my wife for Christmas (after our old one literally blew up!). We're using a 20 inch I am going to give to my kids once she gets the new one. Since they got rid of our local bargain Theater, I will probably wait until Rocky Balboa comes out on DVD and can buy it for a few dollars. Besides, I'll be busy watching my DVDs of Superman Ultimate Edition (Except III and IV, both of which were totally ignored in Superman Returns Thank God!) through my 6.1 home theater system.

Response from Head RAZZberry: Maybe Santa ought to check if Mrs. Claus reads this Forum before posting what she's getting for The Big Day.  Congratulations, and enjoy!

Response to Head RAZZberry: Mrs. Claus knows what Santa is getting for her (She made it impossible to keep it a secret) but does not get to see and enjoy her present until Christmas Day (the suspense is killing her, trust me). She does not unfortunately read this forum but will be present at Razzie night with me as you pass out the prestiges Razzberry's for our deserving worst.

How does it feel to be called a Balboa-saurus? ROCKY BALBOA  looks just like ROCKY III-V. Only this time, they're using a real Boxer, instead of a Hollywood Actor, as his opponent...
