Best Boxing Movie: Great White Hype: I loved Samuel L. Jackson in this movie! I like his character better than Pulp Fiction. It was an all star cast. Peter Burg as Irish Terry Coughlin, Damon Waynes, Kadeem Hardison, Jamie Fox, Bert Sugar. It was a great movie. Cheech Martin was even in it! Great movie. Million Dollar Baby! Well done, well written and well acted!

Worse Boxing Movie: Gladiator starring Cuba Gooding Jr. The worse movie I had to watch. Rocky comes in a close second. Diggstown I had issues with, the writing sucked, it was trying to be a comedy as well as a drama and it didn't mix well. And that movie Omar Epps ( (IMG:style_emoticons/default/drag.gif) ) and Meg Ryan. Awful.

You always seem to defend the nonsense of this girl. Seriously, Rocky 5 and the latest one with Tarver may not have been the greatest, but to say all of them were the worst, is a bit of a stretch.

Rocky movies made people like boxing, even the ones who knew little to nothing about it. She's just a clueless fan with an opinion, seriously...

*On another note, The Fighter was actually worth watching, and I've watched it several times since seeing it at the movies...and I rarely go the movies.

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif) me not liking the rocky series has absolutely nothing to do with ur girl. rocky 1....the story itself....i loved it but lets be honest...he stole the whole thing from wepner and frazier. the fight scenes were horrible at best. if ur going to make a movie about boxing....u should at the very least put forth some effort to make the shit look realistic. rocky failed miserably in that category. the whole..."u gotta be able to take punishment" bullshit from sly has caused more brain damage than pop warner football.

the fighter was a great story! i actually have one of the original scripts (before all the re-writes) in my possession. mickey wards story is a good one....but i think they failed in capturing his story. his brother stole the movie. very good movie no doubt...but not one of my favorites.

Honestly, whether the story was stolen or not, it was still a pretty good movie. I agree that it may have messed up viewers' opinion of how an actual fight is supposed to be, because there would be a lot more brain damaged fighters today, if every fighter lived by that.

I just believe that as a true boxing fan, some things should be considered blasphemy, i.e. saying that the Rocky movies were horrible. Again, I wasn't a huge fan of 5 and 6, but c'mon. In your case, I respect your opinion though. AT LEAST, your opinion has reasonable and substantial support. Dum-Dum (Allmenjoi) just gets on here and spews stuff like that, with hardly any supporting statements.

THEN, when she's challenged on it, it usually turns into 5-6 pages of ying yang, in which she's being educated and harassed at the same time. During that time, she'll throw in about another 20 names of some other random stuff, that usually warrants further explanation. See where Im going with this? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

How in the HELL did you get your hands on the original script of The Fighter??? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif) Only you Professor! I would like to know what happened before they rewrote parts of it, but seriously, I enjoyed his brother's significance in the movie. It shows that fighters have real life issues outside of the ring, and most of it consists of family members. Man, did his brother not hold onto the mysterious SRL knockdown for the whole movie? Let alone, his whole life! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

i live in l.a. and know plenty of ppl in the movie industry. one of my clients is a big wig at sony/tri-star. i actually know a lot of back story that i can't share...but it made me look at the movie in a totally different light. i thought christian bale stole the show with dickie euklands character. the original script seemed more focused on him than ward. mark walberg is a p.o.s.
