Rocky III (1982) – Filmsack Show Notes


oh hi,

You ever fight a dinosaur kid? Well that question was almost answered in the original Rocky III script.

Here is the script pitch I found on Rocky Leaks: “After winning the ultimate title and being the world champion, Rocky must face his toughest opponent yet. Mr. T….Rex. Who’s hungry?”

After comparing the original script with what eventually made it to the screen…. it is mostly the same…Paulie still don’t sweat nobody, there is still a charity wrestling match…. face to tits with Thundelips, Adrian still has a shouting match with Rocko on the beach making everybody feel uncomfortable, Apollo still slow motion frolicks in the ocean with Rocky in his sweaty shorty shorts…. making everybody feel uncomfortable and Mick still dies…but this time Magic Mick feeds himself to Mr. T ….Rex to hopefully satisfy his hunger to protect Rocky. Doesn’t work.

What do I predict? Pain…I predict Pain fool.

Why you do me like this IMDB? You know that ain’t the Rocky III Poster…or is it?
