The next Rocky movie: how it should be
OK, just in case I get ripped off. This idea was posted on June 22, 2003.
Since Stallone is now in his fifties he should bring back the Rocky character and show him dealing with brain damage from the poundings he took in his fights. It would be perfect. With such high profile boxers like Ali and Frazier and never wases like the guy I helped looked up a news report about a fight he had several years ago showing such obvious adverse affects of the boxing life it would be a great fit for Rocky.
The movie could open with an ill-fated comeback where Rocky gets all beat up and the fight is stopped. Old boxers, like race car drivers, don't know when to stop. Then the movie jumps a few years into the future and Rocky starts having trouble with his balance, motor skills and speech.
Man, I can smell Oscar in this for Stallone. If Stallone would like to buy this idea from me he can email at the address listed on this page. I look forward to hearing from him.
