HBO has been promoting the Mayweather vs. Ortiz fight for weeks and they’ll square off this Saturday in Vegas. If only Pacquiao was Mayweather’s opponent, the match might be worth watching.
For those of you who refuse to purchase pay-per-view but like a dose of violence in your entertainment, consider watching movies known for their famous throwdowns instead. Besides, HBO will re-air the fight next weekend for free.
This week’s list is dedicated to memorable movie fights, the characters who fought them, and the trash talking that ensued along the way. What are your favorites?
1. "Rocky 3" (Rocky Balboa vs. Clubber Lang II): “You ain’t so bad!” – Rocky (Rocky vs. Thunderlips is a close second, but so are all of Rocky’s bouts.)
2. "The Last Dragon" (Leroy Green vs. Sho’nuff): “Now, when I say, ‘Who's da mastah,’ you say, "Sho'nuff!" – Sho’nuff
3. "The Empire Strikes Back" (Luke Skywalker vs. Darth Vader): “No. *I* am your father.” – Vader (Possibly the greatest line in film history.)
4. "The Matrix" (Neo vs. Morpheus): “Do you believe that my being stronger or faster has anything to do with my muscles in this place? Do you think that’s air you’re breathing now?” – Morpheus
5. "The Karate Kid" (Daniel Larusso vs. Johnny Lawrence): “Get him a body bag! Yeah!” – Johnny’s Cobra Kai Toady Tommy
"Fight Club" (Narrator vs. Tyler Durden) – “How much can you know about yourself, you've never been in a fight?” – Tyler Durden
"The Princess Bride" (Westley vs. Inigo Montoya): “I’m not left-handed either” – Westley
"Raging Bull" (Jake La Motta vs. Joey La Motta): “Come on, hit me. Harder. Harder.” – Jake La Motta
"Big Trouble in Little China" (Chang Sing vs. Wing Kong): “I was born ready.” – Jack Burton
"Die Hard" (John McClane vs. Karl): “You should have heard your brother squeal when I broke his neck.” – John McClane
"Gladiator" (Maximus vs. Tigris): “We who are about to die, salute you!” – Tigris
"Aliens" (Ellen Ripley vs. Alien Mother): “Get away from her, you b$%&#!” – Ripley
"Predator" (Dutch vs. Predator): “You’re one...*ugly* m.f.’er.” – Dutch
"Three O’Clock High" (Jerry Mitchell vs. Buddy Revell): “Today. After school. Three o'clock. In the parking lot. You try and run, I'm gonna track you down. You go to a teacher, it's only gonna get worse. You sneak home, I'm gonna be under your bed.” – Buddy Revell
"The Game of Death" (Bruce Lee vs. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar): The fight speaks for itself.
Okay, this is from TV...and I know we're talking movies...but every time Peter and the giant chicken square off in "Family Guy" is just great stuff.
game of death
enter the dragon
gladiator (cuba gooding jr)
just to name a few real classics.........
ooow thanks admin very good movie :)
Bruce Lee vs Chuck Norris anyone? Enter the Dragon anyone? the best movie fight ever! do some homework and check it out.
Rocky IV – great line:" I must break you" – Dolph L.
And the Evil Dead III – Army of Darkness with Bruce Campbell.
Brosnan's Bond vs. Graves in a swordfight in Die Another Day.
Superman vs. Captain Marvel in TV's Justice League Unlimited – "CLASH" episode
John Carpenter's "They Live" may be the best fight scene ever in a "B" movie. A bare-knuckle knockdown brawl. I also vote for any bathroom fight scene where someone's head get's slammed into a toilet – "True Lies", "Terminator 3."
The Wildbunch before the big shootout. William holden, "lets go!".
A couple of people mentioned 'They Live'. Awesome choice. I wouldn't of thought of it. "Its time to chew bubblegum and kick ass. And i'm all out of gum"
Aliens "lets rock!!!" – Vasquez.
From the Evil Dead movies. "I'll swallow your soul" said the demon or witch. "Come get some" replied Ash.
I think Demon Witch would suffice. lOl The Evil Dead movies were priceless. That's one of my favorite scenes alongside the fight with his possessed hand.
Jet Li Vs. Danny Glover & Mel Gibson in Lethal Weapon 4. That's a good one.
Big Trouble in Little China!! Awesome. Lol
Should have gone with Bruce Lee vs Chuck Norris in Way of The Dragon.
what , nothing from those alien giant transforming robots? sad
It's time for the world to learn, the "secret code" can achieve a 90% accuracy rate within the oil market. What I'm trying to do is wake you up so that you can see that you can make as much money as you want within the oil market by using the "secret code". So here is the proof, shown live with NO POSSIBLE WAY to fake!! Google Oil Trading Academy to learn more.
Obi Wan Kenobi fights Jango Fett in the rain : Star Wars E2
Pliny-stfu Talk about saying the same thing over and over. Yer as bad as tracie !
I like what I'm hearing from everybody! Here are a few more good ones: Kill Bill (lots of good fights), Ong Bak (AMAZING), The Warriors (80's gang fights), Monty Python and the Holy Grail (just for fun).
ARE YOU SERIOUS?! All these fights and they don't mention "They Live"? RODDY PIPER VS KEITH DAVID! BEST ON-SCREEN FIGHT OF ALL-TIME!
oldboy has a killer single sequence thats way intense
The last fight scene was amazing. i still prefer to call it Tom Yum Goong.
Gosh what is that book/ movie called....The Greasers if I'm not mistaken. Or Smoking Aces... pretty bad A stuff
You're thinking of "The Outsiders."
How about any of the fights from the Bourne series? Awesome sequences and cinematography!!!
Cinderella Man... MB to JJB... "It's no joke, pal. People die in fairy tales all the time".
This is the worst content I've read on CNN in a while. Probably put together at the last minute by an intern. Terrible.
CINDERELLA MAN !!! Jim Braddock Vs. Max Baer
Great list but would have had Rocky 1 and 2 there with Rocky 3. Also, how about The Wrestler and The Fighter?
What about Jason Statham kicking a$$es in The Transporter? The fight scene in the garage where he breaks the toe clips off the bike and covers the floor & himself with oil? He beat 6 or 7 guys.
We need more 'poop' jokes.
It's not good enough to hear them 1000000 times.
We need to hear you tell them again and again and again.
We need to know how boring and unoriginal you are.
We need to know that people like you still have the humor and intellect of a 5 year old.
Thunderdome.same concept two men enter one man leaves.
What the is wrong with you? Grow up already. This was going on since last night. First you started on Beautiful Vixen now Get a room. You are doing a poor job of it. Get a room comments are more serious and never childish. He would nev willful come on here and say mean things. Beautiful Vixen, I guess she is getting soft. So what? I think it's time for your meds. Go take them before you forget.
What about James Bond vs Peter Franks in an elevator in Diamonds are Forever??? Both guys knew only one was getting out of the lift alive – an intense, claustrophobic fight to the death!
@Fores'@charlie crack who else.
Wow, you're way off LOL. Look, Richard, how am I doing? Fooled these clowns so easily!
Pacquiao would beat Mayweather worse than Ike beat Tina.
Ip man, 1,2 and 3.
I heard they are doing a remake of Rocky III with Chaz Bono taking the part of Rocky Balboa only they will be sparring in Wrestling championship instead of boxing. Looking forward to seeing a Chaz in a pair of tights!!!
This is jacked
