What I like: I think this movie is very inspiring and not just for athletes. It can been a good source of inspiration for anyone who wants to succeed in this world. The climatic match between Rocky and Apollo Creed is very well done in showing a fight not between men but hungry lions.
Also the training montage is a cinematic classic!

What I didn't like: Basically I hated Rocky Balboa for the first half of the movie. As the series continues he becomes really likable and one can't help but being sympathetic with the character (especially in Rocky VI). However In this movie I think Stallone tries way to hard to make Balboa sound like an idiot. And he repeats the phrase "Hey, yo.. " way too many times. I also disliked his weird sense of romance towards Adrian.

Overall: When Rocky finally starts training for the big chance he is given the movie really starts reaching new heights! He is not fighting just for himself but for every person who has had a terrible run of bad events and is given a chance to succeed! The boxing match is really terrific and the movie has memorable characters. It also sets up the Rocky franchise. I would recommend you to it as it may well inspire you to do something big with your life!

I was a teenager when this came out, and didn't have enough experience in watching film at that point in life to know that this was a throwback to a common type of film that had been done decades before, previous to the "anti-hero" films of the late 60's/early 70's, and the downbeat, O-Henry ending of many of those films. Hence, it seemed "fresh" to me. Stallone was a relatively new face, an unknown quantity, and I remember one reviewer (in Newsweek, I think) saying, and I paraphrase, "It's hard really to know from this one film whether Stallone is a good actor or not." Well, decades later, we know...all too well. Stallone is a horrible actor possessed of an immense, overblown ego who makes cinematic shit for an undiscriminating audience. But at the time "Rocky" came out, it wasn't as obvious yet, and I remember thinking that "Rocky" was a pretty good film. At that time, a "feel good" film that had an illusion of street-savvy grittiness about it and an upbeat ending was a novelty.

It's hard to evaluate it now because I haven't seen it in decades. Then again, unlike most films of even mariginal value, I have no desire to watch it again, and that has to count for something. And not something positive.

This film didn't suck but it was the worst of the six Rocky movies. The main problem was that Rocky had a street fight instead of a prizefight. When people went to see the Rocky movies, they expected to see prizefights. Not a street fight. Rocky also lost all of his money in this movie. Many fans hated that.
At the beginning of each Rocky movie (Except for the first and sixth one) it shows the ending of the fight that he had in the previous movie. Why wasn't the ending of the street fight shown in the beginning of Rocky Balboa? It was obviously not shown because the street fight was pathetic.
The producers of the Rocky movies wouldn't let Stallone make a sixth Rocky film until he paid them a certain amount of money. Chartoff and Winkler probably did that because they lost their shirts after the fifth movie was released.
Even a big Rocky supporter said that Rocky V stunk. I believe that this movie is worth watching but it isn't a very good movie. Back in the eighties I would never in my wildest dreams have imagined that Stallone would make a Rocky movie that had a street fight. I give this film a 2 star rating.

Southland is a police drama which made its debute in 2009, that airs on NBC in the 10pm "big-time" slot previously filled by "ER" , and produced by one of ER-s creators, John Wells. The show
follows several LAPD officers as they perform their jobs, while also following their personnel lives, much as ER did.

I am a fan of police films/TV shows and having seen the pilot episode and parts of another episode, I can say this is a solid show with solid writing, which is far more realistic and more everday than other LAPD/cop shows/movies such as Street Kings or Training Day and doesn't rely solely on violence and shoot outs. So realistic I feel if anyone has considered a career as a police officer, this is the non-reality fiction show I would recommened watching to see what being a police officer like and what they will encounter on the job.

In the pilot, rookie Officer Ben Sherman (played by Ben McKenzie) having just graduated from the LAPD academy, spends his first day on the job with his field tranining officer John Cooper (Michael Cudlitz), and gets bullied around by Officer Cooper, much like Ethan Hawke was bullied around by Denzel Washington in traning day. However again Southland offers a far more realistic glimpse of the work of police officers, especially rookie cops as Officer Sherman vomits when he sees a corpse which has been chewed away by dogs and goes into a state of shock after shooting and killing a Latino gang-member. Meanwhile Detective Lydia Adams (Regina King) comes home upset after finding the body of a murdered child and asks her mom, who she lives with, to leave her alone as she tries to recover from the ghastly discovery.

Also the show goes for realistic dialouge, as there is cursing featured in the dialouge but however since it is airing on network TV it gets censored out--the first time I can recall a network TV show including cursing and letting the censors decide to block it out.

The tricky question for this program is what can "Southand" give that other cop shows such as Adam 12, The Wire, Law and Order SUV, The Shield, The Closer, Hill Street Blues and NYPD Blue or any other police TV show already hasn't?

It probably can't offer a whole lot that is fresh but this show will probably do well in ratings unless viewers decide they don't wnat to spend their Thursday nights watching a cop drama.

Cynics and haters may criticize/rip the show however for being nothing more than a cardboard-cut out of ER--now shifting its focus on LAPD officers in the City of Angels instead of doctors in Chi-Town, as in the pilot episode it ends just as ER did, with a musical montage playing as characters reflect on the day that has just passed. I have a feeling their will also be moments similar to ER, when an actor leaves the show he/she will wind up getting murdered in a shoot out with the bad guys or getting fired for dishing out some good 'ol police brutality to an undeserving civilian, ect.

But all in all this is a solid show and I see it lasting a couple of seasons at least and is worth watching in my opinion.

I personally dont like the main character a whole lot.. the whole dirty cop thing isn't for me but other than that the series is solid. Ending which was previously reviewed obviously tied everything together quite well. The dirty cop theme in my opinion though.. keeps it from being 5 stars :)

Definitely one of my favorite TV shows. Extremely satisfying ending with the series finale, it wrapped everything up very nicely. I can't even think of a weak season out of the six.
