Rocky I – V

1976 – Howard loves the original.  He was talking about movies and their sequels.  He said he loved Rocky 3.  Fred plays the music during Scott the Engineer’s push up contest, and any other fight in or out of studio, like the fight between AJ Benza’s and Stuttering John.  Rocky theme was played during Artie’s pizza eating contest, that Artie ended up losing.  In 2013, Howard talks about the news that Rocky is going to be made into a Broadway musical.  He thinks that’s a bad idea.

On Howard Stern: The Satellite Years:  Howard was talking to Robin about how movies now have to make it on their first weekend out.  They aren’t given the chance to grow by word of mouth like years before.  Movies like Rocky, Crocodile Dundee, Napoleon Dynamite and Borat.  Maybe the last movie to grow like that was the Jazz Singer in the 30’s.  Robin disagrees, but Howard says he’s talked to an expert and movies don’t grow like that anymore.  Howard said that Hoosiers was a great movie, but then they made a Hoosiers light and it was horrible.  Saw 3 got awful reviews but made lots of money at the box office.  Howard said Artie should make his next movie a horror picture and it would do better at the box office than Beer League.
