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.

I'll go on record and say, I tolerated the "Rocky" movies, but Rocky 3, I hated the most. Considering I grew up in the 80s, I hated how they made Mr. T., this uber-ignorant character, to the opinion of which, white America seemingly held of blacks. It wasn't enough that he trashed talked, but they made Clubber Lang such a vile, disgusting character ( as evidence by the line, "hey woman...come over to my place tonight and I'll show you a real man"), you can see evidence of America's social (read: race relation) politics. I hated this movie and subsequently, why I despise Stallone to this very day. Wanna know how much I can't stand Stallone? I supported "The Contender" until I found out he was associated w/ it. Plus, the ass-whippins Clubber was handing out was amaaaaaazing...no way a "brawler" like Rocky was gonna take those ass-whippins from a bigger, better, stronger and faster "brawler". Classic: good (white guy) vs. evil (black dude).

Favorites:

When We Were Kings
Raging Bull
Great White Hype (though I don't get how Allmenjoi is fawning over Samuel L's character. The movie is entertaining, but to go on about it as if the characters had some sort of depth is, well, someone trying too hard)
Million Dollar Baby
Streets of Gold
The Great White Hope
Tough Enough
Let's Do it Again (claaaaaaasic Poitier & Cosby comedy <--- most underrated comedic duo)
Against the Ropes
Ressurecting the Champ
