‘Rocky Heavyweight Collection’ Blu-ray Giveaway Contest!

We have given away some pretty big Blu-ray prizes here on the site over the years, but nothing compares in my opinion to what’s up for grabs in today’s BIG announcement.  When I think of America, pride in my country and the ability to rise up against all odds and become the greatest you possibly can be in the face of utter adversity, nothing cinematically is more synonymous in my mind than the Rocky movie franchise.  I’m not sure how you feel about that opinion of mine, but I’m hoping some of you at least share in my sentiments and are PUMPED about this Blu-ray giveaway our friends at Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment are making possible here for one lucky reader of Why So Blu!  You ready to learn more?  Follow me and let’s step into the ring!  Ding!  Ding!

And since this is such a HUGE contest here on the site I thought it would be fun to do something GRAND and break away from the usual tradition of having our trusty computer program pick a random submission as a winner by doing something different, on a much LARGER scale.  Let’s face it?  Everyone should own this series in their Blu-ray collection.  And for one lucky reader of the site, we have a way for you to do just that and help us raise awareness of the site at the same time.  But best of all, this is at no cost to you.  It doesn’t cost you anything to enter this contest!  So I want you to think for a few moments what the Rocky films mean to you by checking out the following press announcement below and read on to the very bottom to find out how you can enter and win your very own Blu-ray prize collection of Rocky Heavyweight Collection courtesy of Fox.  Enjoy and good luck!


‘Rocky Heavyweight Collection’ out on Blu-ray February 11! 

Featuring all six knockout Rocky films including the first film with a stunning new master, Sylvester Stallone stars in the greatest boxing saga of all time and triumphs as one of the most inspirational characters in cinematic history. Now restored in 4K resolution (four times the clarity of HD), witness every epic, action-packed fight and unforgettable moment as Rocky strives for greatness through sheer determination against impossible odds.  This collection contains over three hours of bonus features including a new featurette “8mm Home Movies of Rocky” narrated by Director John Avildsen. Maybe you’re not a heavyweight fighter, but if you’re alive and breathing, these quotes from our favorite underdog to champion, will be applicable to you at some point in your life.  What better way to celebrate this collection than the many life relevant quotes found in all six of the legendary films?


“Now if you know what you’re worth than go out and get what you’re worth”

(Rocky IV)

 It’s easy to let a setback in life keep you down but realize you are a champion and unique. There is no one in the world that can do exactly what you do, so once you figure out your unique specialty, look for opportunities to share it and make it known!


“Every champion was once a contender that refused to give up”

(Rocky Balboa)

Looking back at all of history’s greats, they usually share a common trait; they didn’t start from the top, the rose from the top. This should encourage you to know that where you start is not where you end, if you want something bad enough, learn it, study it, and continually go after it. The only difference between the contender and champion is that one gave up while the other continued to try.



“The last thing to age on somebody is their heart”

(Rocky Balboa)

Your hair will get grey, you might start to lose your teeth, and your pants will probably never fit you the way they did in your prime, but this Rocky inspired quote reminds us none of that matters when it comes to the heart. This could mean being young at heart or continuing to push through obstacles towards a life goal.

Which leads us to the next point.


“Nothing is real if you don’t believe in who you are”

(Rocky III)

It is easy to be your own worst critic that is why it is important to be your biggest supporter. It is crucial to have a support system of friends and family that believe in your abilities, but when they can’t be there, you have to be able to remind yourself that you can succeed.  Be you’re own champion always.


“You know what you have to do, do it”

(Rocky IV)

Sometimes your most successful moments in life happen when you face the things you fear the most. That could be ending a relationship, starting a new career, or even training for a marathon. Whatever ‘it’ is that you have to do, take a moment to think about it. Take another moment to consult someone trusting and wise, and take a final moment to simply….do it. The time you spend analyzing your hesitancy can take away from the time to get you closer to your goal.
