    Just another day

    I just saw it. Now, as best as I can tell, Rocky's heroic advantage is that he can take head shots all day coming from a steroid infused giant. He doesn't dodge, he doesn't parry, he doesn't try to dart in and out...he just takes shots to the head. He can hit, and he can take hits, but more the latter than the former.

    What a bizaare character. Apollo Creed was a far more interesting character than Rocky or the boss, Drago.

    His master plan to win is by breaking his opponents hands on his face.

    Of course, because he's not a man, he's a rod of iron.

    only Chuck Norris can defeat Rocky (and not get defeated in a rematch).

    It's time for another Rocky movie --- here's what the cheesy plot could be.


    This time Rocky Balboa becomes interested in professional wrestling after watching an old Hulk Hogan video. He supports a young protege he calls "Little Rock" who is an immediate hit with the fans (the guys love his athleticism, the girls just love him) and Vince MacMahon sees this guy as the one to take WWE to the next level.

    One problem -- Chuck Norris. Until Balboa and "Little Rock" came on the scene, Chuck's protege "Texas Danger" was MacMahon's big favorite. Chuck is bent on eliminating Balboa and his protege once and for all.

    MacMahon schedules a match in which "Little Rock" is to defeat "Texas Danger" to determine the main challenger for the WWE belt. Norris decides to sabotage the match so that "Little Rock" will be severely injured and unable to continue with professional wrestling, but Balboa realizes what's happening, and the result ends up being a major brawl involving all four parties in the ring. The audience thinks all of this is part of the act and absolutely loves it. Norris in a fury challenges Balboa to a no rules match the following week to settle the dispute.

    All of this leading up to the dramatic fight between Balboa and Norris - which all the fans think is the usual "fake" wrestling match, except that this one is for real.

    I have heard from reliable sources that Hulk Hogan is a woman traped in a man's body.

    Just send your resume to Hollywood. I'm sure they will snap you up as a screenwriter. Quality like that just cant be ignored.๐Ÿ™‚

    The Hollywood bigwigs would be foolish to turn down my offering - especially after I complete the details of the 45 minute chase scene through the streets of Los Angeles that will involve $500mill worth of awesome explosions, and will include a cameo of OJ Simpson rescuing MacMahon's pet cat from a burning car.
