while clubber lang was terrible, rocky iv really isn’t that bad a movie. certainly up there with top gun for macho 80s movies. a strong sountrack of good weightlifting / driving songs. (ha! like i lift weights!)
brigitte nielsen’s accent is terrible (did anyone see her on the comedy central roast? bum-clenchingly terrible) but other than the anti-soviet subplot, it’s a pretty good macho movie
the scene of rocky in his black lamborghini (pennsylvania plate SOUTHPAW) is a fantastic example of 80s montages (parodied in Team America: World Police) and recaps well the best of the early Rocky flicks.
I have not seen, and will not see, the final Rocky movie, Rocky Balboa. I’d rather eat my own poo.
