| Rocky Goes Hollywood
If Rocky and Rocky II are the crown jewels of this franchise, then Rocky III has to be its gold plated pinky ring, complementing a faux Gucci wardrobe spritzed with bad cologne.

Rocky goes Hollywood in the third installment of the series as he tries to find himself while training in LA to battle Mr. T, who at least looks good as a sports movie villain.

It's not a terrible movie. You get what you've already come to expect from Rocky movies- good action, Rocky's ongoing conflicts and also a little more insight into Apollo Creed who was always one of the most interesting characters in the series.

The only problem here is that Rocky III just screams "80s movie" louder than anything you've ever seen- with juiced up bodies, oily training montages and Eye of the Tiger kicking in all over the place. You could be forgiven if you thought you tuned into Miami Vice by mistake. So, it's a little tackier than the first two but probably the last one that was really any good.
