30 Years Ago This Weekend… Rocky IV - ManlyMovie

30 Years Ago This Weekend… Rocky IV

Rocky IV was released on this weekend… 30 years ago.  Now that really is a landmark anniversary and kind of ironic that it releases almost exactly at the same time as ‘Creed’.

This was the highest grossing Rocky movie ever, bringing back more than ten times its budget at the international box office.  A lot of people call it the best Rocky movie, although hardcore Rocky fans will remind you that the first is the best.  Personally, I find the third to be the best in the series – can you believe the third is the lowest grossing Rocky movie?  Although that may change with inflation.

We should probably take this time to demand some real Rocky IV Blu-Ray respect.  The movie is available on home media, but it has never been given the special treatment you’d think it deserves.  This is baffling to me.  Every time there’s a Rocky box set, you can expect hour after hour of extras for one movie – the first only.

    I saw “Creed”
    The whole notion that is the best Rocky movie since the first one it’s absolute bullshit.
    & anyone that says that “Creed” is the best one since the first one, is not a die hard rocky fan.
    The movie starts good enough..entertaining and I was engaged.
    I would have concentrated solely on the story of Apollo’s child, family dynamic & Apollo’s history…Rocky wasn’t needed.
    The movie started strong.. But in the second half started recycling stuff from the old Rocky movies and on top of that, like I wrote previously, the story of rocky in this movie pretty much shits on what the previous one accomplished.
    it’s not a terrible movie…but “Creed” is getting overrated

    It’s like a feature length MTV video but we love it.
