Rocky’s a winner until he isn’t. Hungry contender Clubber Lang (Mr. T) nabs his heavyweight title after knocking him out in the second round. Can the big lug win it back again in the rematch? What do you think?

The Rocky series was beginning to look a bit tired by the time of this 1982 threequel, which was once again writen and directed by Rocky himself, Sly Stallone. But at least it’s toe-tapping, being the one that features Survivor’s Oscar-nominated hit Eye of the Tiger. In between counting their money, the band have busied themselves in the ensuing years by suing Repblican Party candidates who use it without permission.
