No list of manly movies would be complete without Sylvester Stalones best known creation. The Rocky films are equal parts moving character dramas and hard hitting boxing films. the first two films in the series could easily be described as two of the best films about boxing ever made. (But not the best, that one will be coming along a little later in the list) The later entries into the series verged into the category of being badbad films. But theres no denying the overall visceral and inspiring power of the first two Rockys.
