East meets West when Rocky takes on a vicious Soviet fighter who literally killed his last opponent! Sylvester Stallone writes, directs and stars in this war between nations in which the only battle is fought in a boxing ring.

Rocky (Stallone) proudly holds the world heavyweight championship, but a new challenger has stepped forward: Drago (Dolph Lundgren), a six-foot four, 261-pound fighter who has the backing of the Soviet Union. This time, Rocky's training regimen takes him to icy Siberia, where he prepares for a globally-televised match in the heart of Moscow. But nothing can truly prepare him for what he's about to face - a powerfully charged fight to the finish in which he must defend not only himself, but also the honor of his country!

My Thoughts:
Despite the obvious over-patriotic stance this film has... both my brother and I enjoyed this one very much. Just as much as we did part 3. I enjoyed the story... and I thought it has a couple good fights in it. I did hate seeing the fate of Apollo Creed. But once again this was needed to tell the story they were trying to tell. We keep losing the characters I like... but yet the character I so do not like (Paulie) remains there till the end of the franchise. I must say... I have been rather disappointed in the DVDs themselves. There is next to nothing on them when it comes to extras. Well... at least we do get the Theatrical Trailer on each disc.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

My Thoughts:
Thought I would go with a comedy the first thing this morning. Unfortunately I did end up with much of one. I wasn't even half an hour in and I wondered if I could make it through this movie. I did somehow make it till the end of the movie. I am not sure how... I was somehow unable to look away. The movie is very predictable.. I knew where it was going every step of the way. And worst of all... as hard as it tried it just was not funny. I wasn't even able to crack a smile watching this one. Well at least not till the end credits when they showed some out-takes. They were the best thing about the entire movie. This movie has some very pretty girls in it. But they do more then play down their looks... they actually sabotage them. Giving them these huge hairdos and I don't know what else. I will be a bit generous with my rating of this movie for the sole reason I did enjoy the outtakes during the end credits as much as I did.

     Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip: The Complete Series
IMDb |Wikipedia |Trailer/Intro |
What goes on behind the scenes of a nationwide late-night comedy sketch show? Aaron Sorkin, creator of The West Wing, answers that question with a must-see show within a show filled with engaging characters, ear-grabbing dialogue and a Hollywood hive of insider buzz.

Matthew Perry and Bradley Whitford portray the likable hotshots brought in to revive NBS-TV's sagging flagship comedy series and Amanda Peet plays their savvy boss in episodes exploring the lives and loves of and the make-or-break creative pressures on the show's staff. Panic. Chaos. Fear. Sleep deprivation. Just make sure it's funny by Friday. Because that's when a nation tunes in to Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip.

My Thoughts:
This is a series I liked from the start when it originally aired. unfortunately NBC decided to cancel it after only 1 season. At least it was a full season. This series is a good combination of comedy and drama. I felt it really worked... and I liked all the characters. This is definitely a series I can easily recommend. I just wish there was more of it to watch.  For those of you that worry about it. Don't worry... the way they ended the season... there is no unresolved storylines. As the season finale also works well as a series finale. If you haven't yet... check it out. I don't think you will be sorry.
