Rocky Balboa is like the only real sequel to Rocky. It matches that films patient and carful storytelling.

I feel like Rock II works if you view Rock & Rocky II as a 4 hour movie with an intermission in between. Otherwise - Rocky II feels like a cash grab.

I caught a few minutes of Rocky Balboa on TV the other day. I was reminded of how genuine it came across. I definitely need to revisit it in its entirety -- haven't watched it since seeing it in the theatre.

I like II, III and IV on their own merits. V was complete crap. Wasn't aware of a director's cut of V floating around years back. I'm all in wanting to see more footage of IV.

Rocky Balboa is amazing. At one point, he was going to release a director's cut of that, then realized it didn't need it. He reiterated that he still wasn't planning on one when he announced the cut for Rocky IV.

Re: Rocky IV: The Director's Cut in the works from Stallone

Pretty cool! I'll never argue with more available cuts of films. Despite it's popularity, this has always been the thinnest of story lines, held together by music video montages. I'd love to get a little more depth, even if it slows the film down. And if Sly wanted to cut the robot out I wouldn't mind...

I'd also love a 45th anniversary release of the series next year (digital/blu-ray) with some more interviews of (available) cast/crew. (Though I forgot I still need to check out the recent doc)

Apparently Stallone is going to delete Paulie's stupid robot in this cut.

The Lamborghini montage is classic! Who doesn't get goose bumps when those synthetic drums start and that bass kicks in as Sly fires up the Lambo?

I'll buy the hell out of this cut!
