The top 20 underappreciated films of 1985

21 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

1985 was the year of Back To The Future, Rocky IV and Rambo II. But what about these 20 movies, that also deserve a fair share of love?

Thirty years ago, Marty McFly was riding high with the smash hit Back To The Future, while Sylvester Stallone enjoyed his most successful year yet with the one-two punch of Rambo: First Blood Part II and Rocky IV. It was an era of family sci-fi and teen comedies and  bullet-spraying action, where The Breakfast Club and Teen Wolf rubbed shoulders with Death Wish 3 and Commando. Then there were low-key dramas like Out Of Africa and The Color Purple, which were both awards magnets at the Oscars.

Away from all those big hits, 1985 saw the release of a wealth of less successful movies, some of which found a second life on the then-huge home video circuit. Here's our pick of 20 underappreciated films from the year of Rambo, »

'The Goonies' 30th Anniversary Soundtrack Coming to Vinyl

28 August 2015 5:07 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Amblin Entertainment is celebrating the 30th Anniversary of two of its biggest hits of all time. These are movies that went onto have a long shelf life, and are both adored by fans. But it seems that the Back to The Future 30th Anniversary celebration has dwarfed The Goonies. That movie is getting released back into theaters, will have a special edition Blu-ray, and a ton of other collectibles that are hitting store shelves this October. But The Goonies isn't being completely left out in the cold. Amazon has something very cool planned, and its something collectors are definitely going to want to get their hands on.

Amazon has started pressing and producing its own line of vinyl records under the Amazon label. And on October 9th, they are releasing 5 vinyl soundtracks to some of the 80s most beloved movies. Including The Goonies, which is getting a special 30th Anniversary release. »

No Sweet Science To Be Found in Ron Wilson’s ‘Super Boxers’

23 August 2015 6:56 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Marvel Graphic Novel #8: Super Boxers (1983)

Plot and Pencils by Ron Wilson

Script by John Byrne

Inks by Armando Gil

Colors by Bob Sharen, Steve Oliff, John Tartaglione, Joe D’Esposito & Mark Bright

Published by Marvel Comics

Among some comic reviewers, there’s an understanding that you don’t talk about the cover of the comic that you’re writing about. It’s tied into that old saying “don’t judge a book by its cover” and it would be a bit like critiquing a movie based on the movie poster in the theater lobby. One is completely separate from the other.

All of that said, the best thing about Ron Wilson’s 1983 graphic novel Super Boxers is Bill Sienkiewicz’s awesome cover.

The official title of the publication is Marvel® Graphic Novel No. 8: Super Boxers. Marvel’s then still young graphic novel line had already produced a number »

Three new images from Rocky spin-off Creed

18 August 2015 9:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warner Bros. has released three new images from director Ryan Coogler’s upcoming Rocky spin-off Creed , which show Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky Balboa training Michael B. Jordan’s Adonis Creed, son of the legendary Apollo Creed

See Also: Watch the trailer for Creed

Adonis Johnson (Jordan) never knew his famous father, world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, who died before he was born. Still, there’s no denying that boxing is in his blood, so Adonis heads to Philadelphia, the site of Apollo Creed’s legendary match with a tough upstart named Rocky Balboa.

Once in the City of Brotherly Love, Adonis tracks Rocky (Stallone) down and asks him to be his trainer. Despite his insistence that he is out of the fight game for good, Rocky sees in Adonis the strength and determination he had known in Apollo—the fierce rival who became his closest friend. Agreeing to take him on, »

Sylvester Stallone Teaches Michael B. Jordan The Tricks Of The Trade In New Creed Stills

18 August 2015 6:26 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

Across six films and three decades, Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky Balboa became a household name; the underdogs of all underdogs, his saga from up-and-coming boxer to world champion was one of the most iconic character arcs of the 70s and early 80s. But for Ryan Coogler’s Creed, Stallone is taking one step back from the limelight – even handing over script duties to Coogler and Aaron Covington – in order to coach the new kid on the block, Michael B. Jordan’s Adonis Johnson.

What makes this dynamic between trainer and trainee so intriguing, though, is the fact that Jordan’s up-and-comer is the son of former world heavyweight champ, Apollo Creed. Played by Carl Weathers across the original films, Rocky’s enemy-turned-ally was ultimately killed at the cannon-like hand of Dolph Lundgren’s Russian boxer, Drogo. It was a revenge arc that made up the majority of Rocky IV, »

The Emotional Story That Convinced Sylvester Stallone To Do Creed

17 August 2015 9:20 AM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Spinoffs to beloved hit movies often times feel like a quick cash grab from a studio that cares more about profiting off of one film.s popularity than necessarily making another good movie.

Talking to EW, Coogler, who first burst onto the scene in 2013 with Fruitvale Station revealed that the idea for Creed is something he.s has been kicking around since high school, and begin life as a way for him to connect with his father.

Second Opinion – Southpaw (2015)

26 July 2015 3:56 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Southpaw, 2015.

Directed by Antoine Fuqua.

Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Forest Whitaker, Rachel McAdams, 50 Cent, Oona Laurence, Miguel Gomez, Victor Ortiz and Skylan Brooks.


Boxer Billy Hope turns to trainer Tick Willis to help him get his life back on track after losing his wife in a tragic accident and his daughter to child protection services.

If Antoine Fuqua has succeeded in any way by making Southpaw, it’s confirmation that we do not need another boxing drama anytime soon – or at the very least not one as lifeless, predictable and uninspired as this. It sullies the name of the great ones to even mention Southpaw in the same review.

Having said that, there is no easy way around the pitfalls of the movie without drawing comparisons as to why similar pictures work so well; after all, our appreciation of such stories is driven by what we’ve seen before and »

Elvis Grant, CEO of of Grant Worldwide tells us Sly called him personally to request his company outfit all the fighters in the latest Rocky flick. It's no wonder Stallone reached out -- Mayweather uses Grant exclusively for his fights, and umm ... last we checked »

Southpaw review: Jake Gyllenhaal bulks up for a heavyweight performance

24 July 2015 2:15 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Antoine Fuqua; Screenwriter: Kurt Sutter; Starring: Jake Gyllenhaal, Rachel McAdams, Oona Laurence, Naomie Harris, Forest Whitaker, 50 Cent, Rita Ora; Running time: 124 mins; Certificate: 15

Jake Gyllenhaal brings considerable heft to a boxing drama that's a little soft in places and stuffed full of the usual clichés by director Antoine Fuqua (who has yet to match his 2001 hit Training Day). Even the fighter's name, Billy Hope, is a little too on-the-nose in trying to push a credo about resilience in the face of adversity. The star, who packed on the pounds for this role, shoulders the burden with grace.

Hope is, without a shadow of a doubt, a good guy, although he is an animal when his blood is up - a Beast, as described by the lyrics of the rap track he listens to before a big fight. True to the hip-hop culture (Eminem was once attached to star and contributes one track, »

"Rambo 5" To Have Rambo vs. Isis?

12 July 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

In arguably the strangest story of the day, Sylvester Stallone has revealed that he currently has people in one of the world's most dangerous hot spots right now garnering intel for the next "Rambo" movie.

Speaking with The Washington Times during an appearance at Comic-Con on Friday to promote his upcoming "Rocky" spin-off "Creed," Stallone said:

"We have teams scouting Iraq and parts of Syria where Isis have their greatest strongholds. We're working with the locals there to help deliver the most intense and realistic Rambo movie experience ever."

Asked for further clarification on his plans, Stallone say only that he's "really excited to talk about Creed today" and would not talk further about the film.

"Rambo: Last Blood" will see the actor take on the role of John Rambo for one last time, and he has previously described it as his version of "The Guns of Navarone". »

“Creed”: An under the radar Oscar contender?

6 July 2015 11:38 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Ladies and gentlemen, I know it sounds silly, but a sequel/spinoff from Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky films might be in awards contention this year. Yes, the upcoming movie Creed is another installment in the franchise centered around fighter Rocky Balboa, but this one takes a U-turn. Instead of being about Stallone’s pugilist, it’s about former rival turned friend Apollo Creed’s son. Rocky is more the trainer than the protagonist, essentially re-launching this series with a grittier and younger bent to it. A Trailer hit last week and really impressed me (which you’ll see below), leading me to wonder if the Academy might once again be interested in this franchise? For those who don’t know, the first Rocky with a big time Oscar contender, nominated for ten Academy Awards and winning three (Best Picture, Best Director for John G. Avildsen, and Best Film Editing). Stallone himself was cited two times, »

Will 'Creed' be Oscars knockout for 'Rocky' franchise?

1 July 2015 5:41 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Now that the trailer for "Creed" has been released by Warner Bros. (watch below), we're left to wonder: Will the film be an Oscars comeback for the "Rocky" franchise, or will it be an afterthought like so many of its sequels? Sound off in our movie forums on this hot topic. -Break- Watch dozens of video chats with 2015 Emmy contenders "Creed" reunites "Fruitvale Station" director Ryan Coogler with Michael B. Jordan, who stars as the titular Adonis Creed (son of Apollo). This is the seventh film in the popular boxing franchise, and yes, Sylvester Stallone returns as the iconic Rocky Balboa. So far, the franchise has racked up 11 total Oscar nominations. However, a whopping 10 of those came for the inaugural film in 1976. Many of the sequels received tepid reviews and were far from awards contenders ... unless you count the Razzies. Let's take a look at how the first half-dozen films fared at the Oscars. »
