We don't learn he lost until the sequel, so I'm not sure how that counts.

Anyway... TB, perhaps you haven't noticed but you do often cite a film's success at the box office or critical acclaim as an argument for its quality. It's not "putting words in your mouth" at all, you do a good enough of job of that yourself. I remember the Forrest Gump thread.

I cite critics when I agree with them. I laugh how a lot of you say that critics don't know what they're talking about when you don't agree with them. They have an opinion just like any of us.

Lol, Rocky clearly lost at the end of the first one. It wasn't 'revealed' in the sequel.

I didn't. That really raised the movie to a different class. But it still isn't a masterpiece.


That's how I felt about.
It was ending that made me like it.
If he had won I would have found the whole deal as a predictable bore.

It wasn't explicitly stated to my memory, and I don't know a damned thing about boxing.

Rocky 4 is clearly the best in the series. If he dies, he dies. DRAAAGOOO! Hearts on fire. God damn, time to put that movie on. :D

Well this is a thread about The Wrestler, and yet we've spent the last three pages discussing Rocky. I'd say the thread was already fucked up.

I saw a trailer at Frost/Nixon yesterday, looks okay but there are still other films I want to see first (might see Milk and/or Benjamin Button next weekend). It's still not playing anywhere around here, it might somewhere down the line though.

Ok, let's get back to THE WRESTLER. Everyone I've talked to who's seen it has given nothing but positive feedback. I'm loving it.
