Round #5 - Stallone keeps slugging out answers to the AICN Mob!!!

Hey folks, Harry here - it's nice to be getting one of these up early on the day it was due. Whew. Thanks goes out to Sly's assistant Celeste, Stallone and well - ultimately myself for coding and dutifully staying at my post to make sure I never miss a deadline. It's good to get the job done everytime. Here ya go...

CLICK HERE FOR ROUND ONE! CLICK HERE FOR ROUND TWO! CLICK HERE FOR ROUND THREE! CLICK HERE FOR ROUND FOUR! And now - Round FIVE!!!!
1. Do you feel like your experience as a director ever meant you overwhelmed some of the other directors you worked with? Like the stories that came about with Danny Cannon and Judge Dredd? Jim Goodwin _London, England
Dear Jim, Yes. Sometimes knowing too much can backfire. Once you’ve been at the helm of a film and understand the basics of 101 filmmaking, you watch other directors with an educated eye. Its like if a film is going out of control, you want to contribute and quite often, a director resists any help because it usurps his power. I can understand this. I remember my first day on JUDGE DREDD when Danny Cannon had been chosen as the director. I knew there was going to be difficulties in communication between actors, director and crewmembers, and that’s exactly what happened. So I believe the film reflects that lack of unity.
2. Hi Sly, Big fan from the UK. I'm sure that I read many years ago that you'd bought the rights to 2 novels. One, if my memory serves me correctly was called a Hunter, about a creature that's been used as an experiment and escapes, and you were something like the worlds best tracker, hence getting sent to capture it? And also a novel about sabre tooth cats attacking a town if my memory is correct, and if so, what happened to those projects? Jamie – UK
Dear Jamie, I did option both these novels, for how long escapees me, but it was difficult at that particular time for such ambitious projects. Maybe if ROCKY BALBOA performs, I’ll be able to revisit that concept.
3. "Of all the films you have made, are there any of them you wish that you had not done?" Tom Cantrell DeWitt, MI
Dear Tom, Let me think…STOP! OR MY MOM WILL SHOOT, OSCAR, GET CARTER, DRIVEN, DETOX and certainly RHINESTONE, which I wish had been ROMANCING THE STONE.
4. Sly, Escape To Victory is national past time in England. What was it like hanging out with Pele, Bobby Moore and the England '66 Team? Thanks, Reni Manchester, UK
Dear Reni, It was a real eye-opener hanging out with professional soccer players. First of all, they had a serious zest for life. While I was crashing early to prepare for the next day’s work, this group of merry men could party all night, come home at the crack of dawn, and still run up and down the field like a heard of wild deer. Maybe it’s something in their water.
5. I enjoyed The Contender series 2 but it just wasn't the same without you. Will there be a series 3 and will you be directly involved? PS. REALLY excited about Rocky VI, yippee! Name: Alex Lamprey City: Cardiff Country: Wales
Thank you Alex. It’s nice to be missed, but seriously, I wanted to try to show an example of the real life Rockys and given the opportunity, some of these guys could rise to unexpected heights. I thought the first season was pretty good aside from the challenges, which I thought were unnecessary to show sponsor products. It actually hurt some fighters because they’d be exhausted or suffering from muscle strains or tendon tears. For those fight fans, two of the first season finalists, Peter Manfredo and Sergio Mora are fighting for world titles. Good luck, they’re gonna need it.
6. My question... Seeing you take-on the role of "Sheriff Freddy Heflin" in CopLand reminded me, and everyone for that matter, what you are capable of with straight drama, and how action of any sorts is not necessary for you to succeed. Thinking past Rocky, and now Rambo for a moment, DO YOU SEE YOURSELF HEADED MORE INTO THAT DIRECTION? Your age may of course dictate this type of move, but I want to know HOW YOU WOULD PREDICT YOUR ROLE SELECTION IN THE FUTURE? Big fan my brother. Sincerely, Dan in Ohio
Dear Dan, There’s nothing I like more than ensemble acting and there is something in the future that could be very interesting, I don’t want to spill the beans now, but it will cover many bases; drama, action and an interesting message at the end. But mostly I’d enjoy writing and directing in the future.
7. Mr. Stallone, over the years, you have made or starred in many great movies. Was there ever a movie or a character that you regret passing over or not doing? Is there a dream project that you'd like to do? Thank you. Preston Melton Fairhope, Alabama
Dear Preston, Yes, there are several films I missed out on and wished I’d done: COMING HOME, WITNESS and SEVEN. Hopefully, someday I will do a film about the life of Edgar Allan Poe.
8. Sly, _ Thanks in advance for bringing back Rocky and Rambo !!! Now, are there any plans to have Frank the Repairman make a return appearance on NBC's "Las Vegas"? Also, in regards to TV, would you ever entertain the idea of a weekly drama series like "Las Vegas"? -Chris Szarek _Chicopee, MA
Dear Chris, No, I think Frank the repairman has been relegated to the character scrap heap. It was fun doing it, but it was more of a favor to my good friend Jimmy Caan. Seeing how hard Jimmy works on LAS VEGAS and the amount of hours one must dedicate to a weekly drama, I believe I prefer to stay in my office and write and try and come up with interesting ideas.
9. What are your favorite movies and/or musicians???? from: Electric Birdman.
I like a lot of films from the 70s. I don’t like to speak specifically because sometimes people get offended. But, my taste runs from THE GODFATHER to JULIEN DONKEY-BOY, so it’s hard to pin me down on that subject.
10. How did it feel to work with Peter Petrelli (aka Milo Ventimiglia)? Did Peter "absorb" any of Sly's powers during the filming of Rocky Balboa? From: Kiki - Des Moines, IA
Dear Kiki, You must land your spaceship and discuss this practically. Obviously Peter borrowed heavily from ROCKY BALBOA, who is an inbred, druid outcast from Stonehenge whose specialty is weaving whistle chains and leaping face down onto pointed objects. Thanks for asking.

    Sly Question for Stallone

    by Jubba

    One-liners are everywhere in action movies. Some are great while some leave the entire audience groaning. What are some of the best and worst one-liners that you've had to deliver and how do you manage to say them with a serious face?

    Just love this Sly Q&A. In 6 hours I have to give a presentation about Harry and AICN. I better get started. Harry, is there anything you would like to say to my fellow students? Maybe a greeting?

  • Dec. 6, 2006, 2:09 a.m. CST

    Weird...

    by Kraken

    As I was reading this Q&A I was eating some vanilla pudding I bought tonight as a midnight snack. I looked down and realized I was eating Stallone's brand pudding. Small universe. Did that sound gay? Oh well. It's good pudding.

    Dredd

    by Scanain

    I would be interested to know if Sly had been asked when making this film, to never remove the helm, would he still have taken the roll? And if you don't get the answer to the final question then clearly, you're not meant to. Seems like a pretty witty guy all the same, he should run for congress.

    Get Carter

    by Pavlo

    Hello Sly, I come from Croatia and I´m a big fan of you. I have one question: Why have you said, you wish that you had not done Get Carter? Get Carter ist one of your greatest movies. You did actored so cool. The Movie is very emotional and there was playing great actors in it. And the other german Fans of you in a german Stallone-Forum (www.slyman.de), are agreeing with me. For a answer of the question we would be very grateful. Greetz Pavlo from Germany/Munich

  • Dec. 6, 2006, 6:13 a.m. CST

    JULIEN DONKEY-BOY???

    by Frijole

    Can't fault Sly for having diverse tastes... but that movie is fucking AWFUL. It makes Gummo and The Brown Bunny and What Is It? look like great storytelling. Yikes!

    G'n'R in Rambo 4

    by abominate

    Hey Sly, someone else asked if you could use Guns n Roses to do some new music for the upcoming Rambo. I'm not against G'n'R being in the film, but only if it's because you're punching Assh*le Rose in the face. Love ya, bye.

  • Dec. 6, 2006, 7:37 a.m. CST

    i liked Oscar

    by triplefive

    and since these are posted so late and i don't see em till the next morning, i'm considering you a day behind Harry.

  • Dec. 6, 2006, 7:44 a.m. CST

    Harry, give us a peak at his portfolio. He can paint!

    by JDanielP

    I remember seeing Sly on television quite a number of years ago, perhaps a Barbara Walter's Special, where he painted a picture with his bare hands in little time yet it turned out to be very cool. At least, that's the way I remember it, just as I remember him being far more talented than most people give him credit to be. So my #1 hope here is that Harry will manage to post some photographs of Sly's artwork. I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to see some of Sly's personal creations. And I would like to know if he still paints or draws or works in related mediums, ever.

  • Dec. 6, 2006, 7:50 a.m. CST

    LAST QUESTION = HEROES

    by bluelou_boyle

    Funny answer to that one. I think the actor playing Sly's son is also in the TV show 'Heroes'. His character absorbs the powers of others.

Thanks Mr. Stallone, Celeste (great name by the way) and you too Harry.

    Sorry Sly...

    by PwnedByStallone

    but your movie SUCKS. I went to a private screening of Rocky Balboa last night and if anyone here has any inkling that this movie is anything but awful, you or sorely sorely mistaken. It's a nothing more than a vanity piece by an aging Hollywood ego-maniacal has-been. The first two-thirds is all set-up for a ridiculous final act that stretches the bounds of plausability with its "I don't need to block a punch" fighting style typical of all the Rocky movies. The set-up is ok but it spends the majority of its time trying to convince the audience that a near 60 year old brain damaged former fighter might beat a current heavyweight champion. I mean when you see Mason Dixon it's obvious this wasn't necessary as the guy looks like Mohammed Ali's daughter could kick his ass. Even hard-core Rocky fans will scoff when enjoyable moments such as the training are brushed over in order to get to the fight scene that is not only poorly executed and anti-climatic, but is little more than one giant Golden Palace advertisement. And don't get me started on the gratuitous Paulie moments in which he makes endless racist jokes that we're supposed to find funny or ignore, but just come off as pathetic. Yes, make no mistake, this movie is a travesty.

    AK-47's no Ebert

    by DarfurOnTheRocks

    The main problem with your review is that you took a shot at the actor/director himself, which leads to questions regarding your objectivity. The second issue that I have is that you criticize the Rockyesque style of boxing, which is consistent which the ENTIRE series! So I guess you are not a Rocky fan period, which once again calls into question your objectivity. Finally, your disbelief that a 60 year old chap can take on a 30-something is unfounded because 1) Rocky is in his 50's 2) George Foreman accomplished similar feats in REAL LIFE! Hey it could very be a terrible movie. But your critique is flawed and subjective.

    The not blocking of punches...

    by abominate

    ...is indeed consistent with other bouts in the series. Sure, it's not how real boxing happens, but it's what we come to expect of Rocky movies, wherein the fights are like cartoon version of real fights. So you get lots of punches being landed, very few blocks, and thunderous punching "whap!" sound effects that of course you don't hear in real life. Look at the Drago fight--if guys hit each other that way, they'd have busted orbitals inside of two rounds. But face it, to have a realistic boxing match in a Rocky film would be boring. I do agree, however, that having Golden Palace and MandayBay ads posted everywhere is cheesy. I haven't even seen the movie--you can see all the ads even in the trailer and production photos. Hope they're not too distracting.

    by PwnedByStallone

    AK-47 is no Ebert You're right about that. The main problem with your review is that you took a shot at the actor/director himself. Yes I did, in the first sentence. The rest was a critique of the film itself. The second issue that I have is that you criticize the Rockyesque style of boxing, which is consistent which the ENTIRE series! Which I pointed out in my critique. So I guess you are not a Rocky fan period I actually like the Rocky series in a nostalgic way but I thought V was a good ending for the series. Finally, your disbelief that a 60 year old chap can take on a 30-something is unfounded because 1) Rocky is in his 50's 2) George Foreman accomplished similar feats in REAL LIFE! I said "near 60" Stallone is 59 y.o. Foreman's last fight was a 12 round loss at the age of 48. anyone else?

    Props to Harry for submitting it and Sly for answering it appropriately. I was gonna submit similar AICN style questions if I didn't see one soon.

    hey abominate thems fighting words

    by southafrican

    dont insult the legend that is Axl Rose, yes he can be as big an asshole as any rock star, BUT at least he actually is a real rockstar (in this age where pansy emo crap passes for rock, and talentless fags like pete dougherty pass as rock stars) he is still largely an enigma (being as he is not a media whore like *coughozzycough*, and he does not give interviews), he has not sold out and does not suck corporate dick (as evidenced by his decade in the making most expensive album ever, much of which has come out of his own pocket, and he has resisted all record company demands and pressures). He is actually trying something diffent, trying to come up with a new sound and style in rock(those who have heard Better will know what i mean), sure it may fail spectacularly and he may fall flat on his face, but how many rock stars have the balls to take this big a chance? And remember that he dissapeared at the height of his fame and popularity in order to do this. I'm curious which rock stars you like abominate, perhaps whining tools like Kurt Nobrain who whine about how crap their lives are and how "hard" it is being a rock star? Or maybe you like self righteous political crusaders like Bono? No thanks i'll take a rockstar that actually *gasp* enjoys being a rock star and is larger than life. Love or hate Axl for things he has done but remember that "mythical" rock stars like him (see also freddie mercuary, David Lee Roth, Jimmy page et all) are a dying breed and if you like your rock loud, swaggering, decadent and FUN then that is a sad thing

    HoJo as First Base coach is amazing/AK-47

    by triplefive

    I love the unrelated mets talk. HoJo was my fave player when i was a kid, so now he can be my first ever fave first baseman. And AK-47 obviously doesn't know shit, cause he said Dixon looks like a man that can be beat by Laila Ali. Which means that he obviously does not know that Mason Dixon is played by Antonio Tarver, who at the time of filming, was light heavyweight champ. Man was, and still is, a bad motherfucker (though he did lose to the 38-year old Bernard Hopkins after he did Rocky B.). So in conclusion, the Mets are awesome and AK-47 is an ignorant fool, and a rather easy target.

    by CherryValance

    I loved the first season of that show until the finale. I knew there was a reason I was disgruntled with Mr. Stallone. Hmm. I'll leave it at that. And Oscar was great. I don't get why people discredit their own movies. I guess they think they're being humble but it doesn't make sense to me. I never saw Stop Or My Mom Will Shoot however. The idea of Estelle Getty shooting people seemed redundant.

    No point in attacking Ak-47. He was just explaining why he did not like the film. He gave some good points. Who know's if he is correct. We will wait and see. Oh and AK-47, none of these people will hate this film. All they are are fanboys who will like it no matter how bad it is. They will just try and deny it if it really is bad. Kind of like the way I am with the Bond films. Yup, just attacked myself there. About Axl Rose, he is a moron. If you can't see that after the past 4 year then you need to wake up. I hate "Gods" of Rock kind of musicians. I'd rather have 100 tortured artists and 100 "self-rightous" political crusaders then one Axel, Roth, so on, and so on. At least there trying to do something to help people. It may mean nothing, but at least they are trying.

    become a full-time writer/director now instead of doing this film. Stallone should come up with new ideas rather than go back to the well AGAIN.

    It isn't a matter of whether he liked Rocky Balboa or not, the fact is that Ak-47 didn't review Rocky Balboa he attacked Stallone, and he did it in a totally inappropriate place. Stallone is taking the time to answer questions from all, positive or negative, and he's answering them far more candidly than we're used to from Hollywood stars. If he doesn't like his films fine, but show a little class, and respect what Stallone is doing here.

    "Why didn't you use your Hollywood muscle to support Serenity in the theaters?" HA HA HA HA, that's wonderful. <p> In other news: Yackbacker, I agree 100% and with your positive characterization of Stallone based on these Q&As, but PLEASE, PEOPLE, STOP WITH THE FUCKIN SPORTS TALK, TAKE IT TO IM OR SOMETHING!

    One line out of about ten attacked Stallone. The rest was an honest critique of the film so you can kiss my ass. As for this being the wrong venue. Maybe you're right, but I guarantee you Stallone is not reading this and never will. And am I supposed to suck some rich-ass Hollywood star's dick because he took a half hour out of his life to answer questions from some geeks on a website? I'd respect him more if he made a movie that didn't insult our intelligence. Thanks streakerfreak1983. Right on BringingSexyBack.

    Sly in Se7en?

    by Cyberfury

    One shudders by the mere thought of it. Witness I could see him do though, even if Ford pwns that role. I just saw ford in Blade Runner again. Man, he was good back in the day...

    I don't know why I'm posting this 5 years too late, but I found this German translation of Sly's talkback and thought I'd share it with anyone who cares: http://community.movie-infos.net/thread.php?threadid=16496
