Raging bull would be my number 1

Rocky films are abysmal. Excruciatingly boring.

Million Dollar Baby is the best for me

Raging Bull and The Fighter the only two worth watching

You forgot about The champ ... Great boxing film
I thought the fighter was great, Christian bale was brilliant



Agree with raging bull and the fighter. Rocky 1 is a decent film though not just a popcorn flick like people think.

Another vote for the Champ, followed by Raging Bull. Still I love all the Rocky's (except 5). I also enjoyed Ali and Tyson

The fighter was a great film-was totally unaware of the central characters and their story beforehand-dont remember the fight in london at all.

Raging bull is a classic-these would be my top 2. Didnt like ali-champ was okish imho,but even tho I may be in the minority-hated the rocky movies.

have seen it and thought it was more of chick flick, (guarenteed to get you a cuddle at the end)
yeah he was good, but thought marky mark was better almost as good as his performance in the departed

"when we were kings" is a great Documentary movie if that counts.

rocky 4

The film documentary "thriller in manilla" is another great watch, fascinating stuff. Its been aired on channel4 a few times. Well worth getting your hands on a copy.

Tyson documentary is good as well
