As a fan of boxing, the final match in Rocky IV might be the worst scripted boxing scene of all time. No one blocks or puts their arms up even once. Every single punch connects. I mention this because it isn't exactly a theme across the series. It's the only one that's that cartoonish and unrealistic.

Rocky IV is definitely a camp classic though. Most entertaining propaganda ever.

Rocky getting punched in the head repeatedly is his whole strategy for taking down Clubber Lang in III.

Apollo: What the hell, man? Put your hands up!

Rocky: Nuhhhh nauuugggggghhhh I got this

A strategy also employed by Homer Simpson to great success.

It's also the best fight in the series, so maybe Rock had a point.

I always remember the street fight scene at the end of Rocky V devolving into breakdance fighting. If only.

Hey, if I can change, you can change, we all can change. The first Rocky is fine. Stallone is in peak form, literally and cinematically, in the '80s that it's impossible for me to think of the first in the same esteem as III or IV. Underdog stories, yeah yeah, they're perfect sports narratives/human stories. How fucking great is the fallen hero arc of III though? It's propulsive, engaging, and purely badass.

Clubber Lang hitting on Adrian, Paulie going apeshit on the pinball machine, Mickey dying (and Rocky's unintelligible response), Apollo's comeback, the beach hug, THUNDERLIPS, the final fight with Clubber... jeez, all fantastic.

Rocky III is a guilty pleasure of mine, for sure.

It takes place in the 2000s, and the antagonist isn't the Zodiac killer of old, but a young man who takes his inspiration for a killing spree from the original. However, it turns out that the Zodiac killer is still alive and angry that such shoddy work is being attributed to his name, and he comes for "our hero".
A combination of incorrect history, bad plotting, horrible camera work and a micro-micro-budget make this the worst movie I have ever seen.
I just wanted to let you all know that I made a mistake here. My bad. This is the plot to the movie I was talking about, but it's not the title. Curse of the Zodiac is the other Zodiac Killer movie that Lommel made. The movie I wanted was Ulli Lommel's Zodiac Killer. I'm so sorry, please forgive me.

I just re-watched The Worst Witch tonight. I think it just shot into 3rd or 4th on my favorite horrible movies list. That movie is art. People had to plan to make a movie that bad.
