I think the Stallone commentaries on part 1 and Balboa are very good, I'll agree with the others on the first one aren't that good.

Re: Rocky Collection Being Prepared for Holiday Release

When watching Rocky today, I noticed some audio sound effects missing. Most noticeably gone were the punch sounds. Although they do sound fake, it certainly adds tension. Also, when Rocky breaks Apollo's ribs there is no bell sound ending the round so it appears the referee just stops the fight.

Those same scenes were in Rocky II and they had the correct sound effects.

Is it just mine or is anyone else having those problems. I'm using the DTS-MA track.

I just got my collection and the Rocky disc and the bonus disc (Discs 1 and 7) were off the spindle. I popped Rocky back in just fine, but when I put the bonus disc back in, the disc cracked. I suppose I should return it, first time I've had a problem like this.

Re: Rocky Collection Being Prepared for Holiday Release

I got mine from Best Buy.com on Thursday. Rocky II was sliding around inside. I watched bits of each movie and I have to admit it really wasn't worth it. I watched all of part 2 and it froze in the middle. I took it to a Best Buy store and they told me they could only return it and give me a credit back on my card, so I just chose not to buy another copy of it. Maybe somewhere down the road I'll pick it up again, but for right now it's not worth it.

Oh thank God, I thought it was going to say a new "special edition" was coming out, I just bought the BD collection again.

Also, those covers are awful!

Re: Rocky Collection Being Prepared for Holiday Release

Do you think we will get a 35th Anniversary Edition of ROCKY on blu? From the reviews I've read the transfer isn't up to par. I'm undecided. What do you guys think of the most recent transfer?

Re: Rocky Collection Being Prepared for Holiday Release

what is w/ you and asking all these questions about anniversary editions? I'm amazed you haven't made a new thread about this particular film.

Come on! Why do people do this? There's no reason to bump an old thread making people think there's new info about a new release!

Why didn't they use the artwork posted by the OP?

I saw some Australian sellers at Ebay offering the collection with the original artwork.

Re: Rocky Collection Being Prepared for Holiday Release

Is this a sale or the new regular price?

I'll get it at that price. I've kind of given up on any special editions of these movies.
