I guess he wasn't listening
Several months ago, heck, it may have been over a year ago, I outlined my idea for the next Rocky movie. I thought it would be a brilliant Oscar-nominating move to have Stallone portray Rocky as a down and out shell of himself who is struggling with brain damage caused by his brutal boxing style. People would have ate that up. It would have made dough and Stallone would get critical acclaim. What more could a Hollywood figure need more than praise and green backs? It was perfect.
As it turns out the next Rocky movie is going to be just as dumb as every one made after the first one. Ooooh, a Rocky comeback. Jesus, he's come back more than Sugar Ray Leonard.
