    I love The Great White Hyoe. Mitchell Kane fell for it, no doubt. The trainer cracks me up. Irish Terry Conklin's reaction to him after another racist rant. ''You disgust me.''

    Million Dollar Baby is amazing.

    Rocky 1-4 + MDB. Best ones. Can't think of anything that compares.

    I'd say every boxing movie I've watched has been named here. Rocky 4 would be my favorite. It's pure WWF, even though Hulk Hogan was in part 3.

    ''Well, you know something, Mean Gene. I've never been more excited about a fight in all my life and I've seen them all, dude. I've been in that ring with Rocky, man. It felt like our combined python power could take on the whole world, brother. Rocky cannot go in there looking for revenge, but it's easier said than done, Mean Gene. Bless the soul of Apollo Creed. What happened to him was one of the most terrible Greek tragedies in the history of the Mandalorian galaxy. A dark day for us all, Jack. Rocky needs to do what he did before he became ''Hollywood''. Forget those droids. He must chop down trees, say his prayers, and grill his lovely wife a barbecue on that beach, man. If he does that, I have no doubt in my mind that he can slam that stinky Russian like I slammed Andre at Wrestlemania 3!! Now whatcha gonna do, when Rocky Balboa and the eye of the tiger runs wild on you?''

    "play it to the bone" starring woody harrelson and antonio banderas is a fun watch that has been left off these posts.

    Raging bull
    Rocky original
    Other rocky films are fun including creeds
    Cinderella man
    Fighter

    Edit

    Long time since I watched hurricane but it was good

    Also I do have a soft spot for Gladiator boxing movie. It's far from great, but I enjoyed as a kid
