Surprisingly solid movie

Why is it surprising that a massively acclaimed and loved movie is 'solid' lmao, because it's old?

31

u/CraigArndt 4d ago

One of the problems with older “classics” is that people today have often seen what they inspired before going back to watch the original. Which can make the unique ideas, styles, or themes that made the original stand out, suddenly feel used and tired. Also a lot of older movies can have language or themes that at the time were okay, but aren’t today. Not just racism, but you’d be surprised how technology has changed movies over the years. Half of old horror movie plots would be solved with a cell phone and might not be as scary because of it.

So Rocky holding up after all this time is remarkable and a testament to it rightfully being viewed as a classic.

u/Maeserk 4d ago edited 4d ago

“Serious” in the sense that there’s more adherence to safety procedures. SlapFIGHT or the slapfighting championship, SFC, on YouTube are examples of the most well known, and they do it quite well.

Power slap doesn’t really enforce stepping (which I played baseball, majority of your power in a swing comes from your lower body, majority of baseball players power comes from gaining ground, physics baby), nor do they enforce clubbing, which is hitting with your wrist/lower palm, which is what causes the knockouts, which is what Dana wants, but isn’t safe. It’s essentially just hitting someone with a right hook at that point. Also there seems to be a lack of weight classes, or serious consideration of it.

Like no one is arguing it’s “safe”, much like the UFC it’s two people pummeling each other, but that doesn’t mean there can’t be mitigations to keep people from developing straight up DANGEROUS TBIs and getting knocked out.

The best slap fights are those of endurance, and lasting long enough, where you just question “how much more can a man take?” Not knocking someone out, that’s punch out not a slap fight.

I have this debate with people all the time. I say how slap fighting is stupid and they bring up "Well what about boxing, mma, etc". I'm like, are you serious?! Half of the time people spend training for those sports is how to BLOCK or AVOID attacks and to take less damage. This is literally just getting hit in the head repeatedly over and over

53

u/culturerush 4d ago

I mean I don't have very positive views on combat sports at all to be entirely honest, I say that as someone who's done kickboxing in the past and went to watch boxing live.

To each his own and all that and I can see the technicality needed to be a good boxer or MMA fighter compared to this. But when I went to go watch boxing last and the crowd around me was screaming for one guy to be knocked unconscious I realised that for most these sports are about watching 2 people really hurt eachother rather than the technical aspect. Sort of like rugby fans who watch for the big knockout tackles or F1 fans who watch for the crashes.

I get it, there is a morbid fascination with it, it's the reason why violence in films does well I guess too. But it's not my cup of tea and I prefer to watch skills in running, team coordination, strength etc than trying to hurt someone until they give up or get knocked unconscious.

All that being said this slapping shit is the next level of stupid.

That's called 'clubbing' (a.k.a using your wrist) and it's illegal in this sport.

u/JoeBucksHairPlugs 4d ago

Slap fighting is supposed to have rules to protect the "combatants", basically all of which were ignored entirely on that strike. The two biggest problems with that swing were the obvious use of the palm (clubbing) and the momentum she gathered by leaning into the swing, both of which would have led to a disqualification in any other slap fighting leagues not owned by that sack of shit Dana White.

You're supposed to only make contact with your 4 fingers because it causes much of the stinging pain without the blunt force trauma. The force generated is also supposed to be entirely from your own generated rotation because leaning away and then putting all your weight behind a swing is substantially more force.

It's just awful technique and most of these blows are going to lead to severe concussions and brain damage.

Yup, and his league is far more dangerous than others due to a lack of enforcement of rules against clubbing (hitting with the palm rather than the fingers) and stepping into the slap (rather than simply rotating at the waist). MoistCr1TiKaL had a video on it recently ("People Are Mad At Me").

Video here isn't clear enough to tell, but looks to me like she clubbed him her.

Origin story for the supervillain named “The Laser EnGRAVEr”. The twist is not in the weapon but how it’s used.

u/Plebmaster129 4d ago

This is power slap a horrible and very unsafe version of a slap fighting, In all other regulated tournaments there are rules in place to keep other players safe such as, no clubbing (hitting with your palm instead of your fingers), no stepping forward, ect. But powerslap had none of these and this is why clips like this happened

yeah looked like she basically palm striked her right on the button

u/Sacredzebraskin 4d ago

If you pause/unpause quickly you can clearly see she struck her with the palm. She steps forward and tilts her whole hand so what connects is the bit of palm under her pinky. That shit had got to hurt bad.

I mean it's just about how well you can hit the tip of the chin and you'll KO anyone... You can see their head go bobble head wobble because the chin took the impact. This is a dumb "sport"? But I appreciate the literal Facepalm

u/truthorbrick 4d ago I'll Drink to That

I lost a tooth -
I lost an eye -
I saw my life go flashing by.

My hearing broke -
My brain changed place -
She killed my whole entire face.

My kidneys stopped -
My spine detached -
It’s not my finest slapping match.

I love it though -
I chase the thrills -
But most of all it pays the bills.
