Rocky III was released in 1982, and it’s our favorite of all the Rocky films. Like all of the Rocky movies, Rocky III takes us through so many emotions. There’s Rocky’s hilarious fight with Thunderlips, aka Hulk Hogan. There’s Rocky’s heartbreak over the loss of Mick. There’s his doubt and loss of confidence after losing to Clubber Lang the first time. There’s Rocky’s reluctance to really go for it during his training with Apollo until Adrian steps in and sets him straight on the beach. Then, there’s the excitement as he transforms his boxing style with Apollo, and lastly, there’s the final fight with Clubber Lang where he finally knocks him out!
