Rocky had heart, but Magnolia had a football in the groin.

Not enough punching in Magnolia.

Plus, Rocky would eventually defeat Communism.

Rocky simply for the wonderful final shot of Adrian giving that great little smirk to the camera...oh, and Mickey's awesome rendition of "Wise up" he sings to Rocky before his fight with Apollo.

Re: Rocky vs Magnolia

ROCKY is 68 minutes shorter than MAGNOLIA. That alone makes it better.
