So Sylvester Stallone just called...

Hey folks, Harry here. SO I just answered the phone, it was Sylvester Stallone calling... The conversation began with him loving on my ROBIN HOOD review. HEAD INFLATING. And then he said he wondered if you guys would be up for another go around of questions & answers with Sly. I said, "Of course my readers would love that." So look for that at some point this summer. Next I had to ask, "Sly, what's up with all this RAMBO V posters at Cannes?" Folks... As this was an unscheduled conversation - I won't be quoting Sly directly - but essentially... NO FUCKING WAY. Stallone told me in no uncertain terms - At the end of JOHN RAMBO - when he sees his home, those horses and he looks back at that road... for Sly, that was a road he is never walking down again. In August, he's doing an expanded edition of JOHN RAMBO that seems to be coming to Blu Ray and DVD - where he is putting back into the films - a few moments here and there that help with the finality of that film. Including a monologue, somewhere around the head of the film which will basically give everything John Rambo has left to say, that is, as of yet, unsaid. So what is going on with the RAMBO V posters at Cannes? Sly has no clue. When I floated the concept that it could be the rights holders trying to raise ludicrous funds to get Sly back in front of the camera. Sly said, "Maybe, but it ain't happening." He then told me that the folks behind those posters essentially said that if Sly didn't do it - someone else would. And Sly seems fine with that. So... it is possible that we'll see RAMBO again on screen... it just won't be with Sly. He's let go of the character, in terms of being on screen. That said, he's very happy with THE EXPENDABLES - and is finishing the film TODAY. He's head over heels for Brian Tyler's score, which we discussed briefly. Oh - and Austin - we could be having one helluva fun EXPENDABLES event. Just saying.

    by yourSTEPDADDY

    ...then I may actually really give a fuck...<p>PS: Dear Sly, I know you see this, but dont get upset... youre somewhat cool (for visiting here for one reason), but I was always a Arnie or Van Damme fan... cant even say I like any of your movies (BESIDES TANGO AND CASH)... but yea, team wit QT... you two could do beautiful things (maybe)

    It's the right call, the character has come full circle, and deserves a rest. I'm really excited to see that Rambo IV extended cut. Thank god there's at least one guy in hollywood who knows what he's doing.

    "No need for another"

    by Peter Franks

    There was no need for another film after First Blood. Remember that one? You know, the one that was actually a good movie? Maybe, MAYBE, you can justify the sequel since Sly took so many 'roids in the 80s and he needed to bring home some POWs, but after that it's all about the fucking money. Nothing else. But what do you really expect from the guy who turned Rocky Balboa into a joke with the countless money grabbing sequels?

  • May 13, 2010, 5:22 p.m. CST

    Harry Sly, hates Liberals like you, he's only using you.

    by Ganymede3001

    He goes on Rush Limbaugh's show, predictably bashes liberals, then he extends his hand out to them when he needs to promote his movies.

  • May 13, 2010, 5:22 p.m. CST

    He Really Should Redo Night Hawks

    by WriteFromLeft

    The storyline is very contemporary and, even better, the film, although well done of its type, isn't a classic, and that's the kind of thing Hollywood should be eyeballing when it comes to remakes. It's a B-plus bubblegum popper with some good performances and direction.

    by Monkey_King

    the novel by Rutledge Etheridge details the exploits of an aging, Jedi-like assassin who has no equal and goes on to save the world from back-stabbing former friends and hairy, amoeba-like aliens. Haven't seen Sly in a Sci-fi film since JUDGE DREDD and it's high time he does. Dolph Lundgren, Jackie Chan, Jason Statham and Eva Green would be my additional casting suggestions. Make it happen Sly!

    Straw Dogs

    by Fettster_uk

    Don't know if anyone has thought this before but from the moment I saw the last scene in Rambo 4 I thought it'd be great to have a 'Straw Dogs' type senario. Rambo gets home, meets his old man/sister/brother/whatever. But when the U.S. cops realise he's back there's a seige of sorts. Maybe they 'interfiere' with one of his family and we end up with a big Waco style stand off. Just a thought...

    Remaking First Blood wouldn't be all that bad

    by GhostDad

    follow the book closely, and I'd say even change the character's name away from Rambo.. totally distance it from Sly's series. There are no more action stars, so no reason to do a reboot of the Rambo character. But First Blood can be pulled off as a lower budget drama with some action scenes, as a "coming home from Iraq/Afghanistan" story. Just don't use Rambo.

    Expendables franchise

    by GhostDad

    I hope so. Really, there's so much potential. Once Arnold's out of office, there could really be the Stallone-Schwarzenegger movie every child of the 80s has wanted, The Expendables should be a franchise mixing and matching various old and new action stars. Hell, throw The Rock in Expendables 2 along with Arnold, see if that can finally make him an action star. Also if there was any justice in the world someone would invent a time machine so we could just bring 80s Arnold and Sly to present day and make a Contra movie.

  • May 13, 2010, 7 p.m. CST


    by Stereotypical Evil Archer

    I disagree with Harry because he doesn't "understand" how the old Robin Hood legends worked in the public consciousness of the time. Even the old legends of Robin don't jive together with a common single story; there is no such thins as "canon" in the Robin Hood stories. Ridley's RObin Hood is a post modern retelling of the tale with real sets, mostly authentic historic attire and a lot of good old fashioned filmmaking. The comparison to A Knight's Tale was a lazy attempt by Harry, who is so entrenched in film culture that the comparison ends up being embarrassing to Harry's intellect. Ridley's Robin Hood is a continuation of broad medieval concepts that he played with in Kingdom of Heaven. It's a tale of recession to revolution and the time is right for such a film to play in theaters. Blockbuster? No, Robin Hood will not be a blockbuster, but it will live on as well if not better than most of the Robin Hood films. You see, Ridley did something noble with his version, he put it in a historical context that will allow the film to be shown and discussed in history classes. I feel sorry that Harry did not enjoy the film (I think he did, but such relevance hasn't dawned on him yet). Harry is more of a live in the moment kind of reviewer of new releases. Had he attended a special event viewing he would have gone ga ga; that's just the way Harry is, and that's okay, that's why we get a lot of the weird stuff on this site. What irks me is how he disagreed with Ebert's Kick-Ass review, but used the same selfish pseudo-critical style lens that he disliked about Ebert's review. Harry's review was harsh for the wrong reasons and he'll see this become self evident. Harry, that's like your opinion man, but we don't have to like it. Robin Hood is a good old-fashioned film epic; not ground breaking, not a runway summer hit but it's a good movie of a kind that is becoming increasingly rare. I suggest that fans of epic films support it, enjoy it and show that there is an audience for such film-making.

    Here is a question for Sly - was it his idea or the director's

    by Turd_Has_Risen_From_The_Grave

    to take Dredd's helmet off in the Judge Dredd movie, a la the recent talkback? Of course, Sly will claim that was all the director's fault, and that he was the one who wanted to be 'true' to the character all along.<p>On a related note, here's a non-dicksucking legit question for the great man: Does he feel his legendary big ego in the 80's and 90's compromised his works? For example, his constant practice of rewriting good scripts himself and making them worse (Cameron's Rambo 2 script, the aforementioned Dredd); ghost directing many of his films instead of using strong, visionary directors (Cobra, Rambo 2 and 3,and even parts of Cliffhanger); and starring in grossly unsuitable comedy vehicles like Oscar and Stop or my mom will shoot, in a vain attempt to keep up with Arnold's successful branching into comedy. Does he feel, now that he is older and wiser, that he should have approached his career differently? After all, he almost ended up as a DTV star post-Copland. It just occured to me that he never really worked with any auteur action directors like Arnold did (McT, Millius, Cameron, Verhoeven), either. Why not?

    by vin_diggler

    that's what these talkbacks have become. everyone thinks their comment is funnier and more clever than the last. There really is no point to it. I for one enjoyed Stallones previous Q and A talkbacks, But now I am ambarassed to go any further. It will now be about who can come up with the most insulting and off the wall thing to ask Stallone. It's a shame really, because it is rare thing that a well known celebrity like Sly is willing to get so personal with his audience. Oh well, I have my fingers crossed that we get another fascinating Q and A from Stollone, but I have a feeling that the trolls will run him off. Nuff said. Attack me if you like, but I am speaking the truth.

    by ominus

    failures.lets face it Sly is not a very skilled actor but rather a star born to play some roles made and fir specifically for him.he was born to play rambo and rocky.that limits him to a specific fanbase,and although in an earlier time it was wider,now it suffices only to support the creation of low-budget profitable movies in which he naturally shines.Its not a coincidence that his career resurrected because Sly had the wisdom to return to the roots which made him famous after all years ago.And by returning to those roots,he returned back to his fanbase which always loved and supported him.Ofc it helped greatly that he did a damn good job with the revisiting of his iconic roles,and that he used AICN as a way to communicate with his fans. <p>Sly is a very smart guy,and in opposition to that fucktard Walter B Willis,i do think that he is sincere with his fans and he is not pretending to be the nice guy to them in order to pay his bills. <p>btw Sly if you are reading this,my brother saw you in a youtube video driving a retro Ford 32 car and told me to tell you that your car rocks and that you have a good taste in cars.cheers.

    Rambo 5 > Expendables 2

    by Acquanetta

    Sly is obviously hoping to sequelize The Expendables to death, but I'm not sure why Rambo has to end for that to happen. Sly's spent the last five years talking about how much he wants to make more than one Rambo sequel. The problem is that he places way too much stock into these stupid Talkbacks. At the first sign of criticism for an idea, he gets on the phone to Harry. I'm sorry, but that really needs to stop. If Sly had used that approach back in the 80s, we never would've gotten half the films that are now considered cult classics.

    Stallone is a lying faggot

    by BunnyMcNibbnles

    In the 90's, Stallone was on a talk show - I think it was Conan O'Brien - and he was asked about further Rambo/ Rocky films. At the time, his career hadn't quite TANKED like in the late 90's, so he was snotty toward Rocky/ Rambo. His answer was this: "No, no more Rambo or Rocky for me. I wouldn't look good in a thong anymore." (the audience busted out laughing to this) So, the point: Stallone - you're a lying shithead. Don't fuck with us like that. If you're really thinking about doing another one, just fucking say it. Don't be a fag.

    Living in Minneapolis sucks what with the lack of all of this sweet movie stuff. Maybe I'm just not informed on the goings-on here, but these cities need some exclusive movie lovin'. I mean, for Chrissakes, when I lived in Omaha I got a sneak peak to the Corpse Bride, and in MPLS the most I've got is an invitation to the newest booze-serving theater. That theater makes absolutely every movie seem enjoyable, by the way. I love a (several) black russians while enjoying my cinema. And the lack of recollection afterward ensures that I will buy the Blu-Ray. Everyone wins. What was I talking about? *takes another sip of his black russian*

    by crunchnuts

    The news that Sly won't make Rambo V really sucks because he stated just a few months ago that the film WAS happening going so far as to discuss the plot. If I could ask my man Sly one question it would be, "Why the hell tell fans we'll see Rambo on screen again just to pull the rug out from under us months later?" If you read this post Sly, know that I respect and love your work, but seriously man, this "Never again" Rambo policy sucks. You should have been upfront and honest from the beginning instead of talking plot about a film you had zero intentions of making. RAMBO was amazing, but that shouldn't make you gun shy about Rambo V. Fans like myself had to wait 20 years for John J's return and now that he's back, that's it? No closure besides a walk down a dusty road? Rambo has one more score to settle and you know exactly what I'm talking about.

    Let's not bag on Sly! The fuck is the matter with you guys? Here's the one Hollywood bigwig who actually gives a fuck about what we have to say, he actually reads the talkbacks and answers our questions, and you're gonna shit on him? Fuck you guys!</p><p>It would be one thing if he was a hack or something, but Stallone is a fucking artist. He created not one, but TWO major American icons! Yes I agree that the sequels took those icons in weird, kind of commercial directions, but it was the fucking 80's! EVERYTHING was plastic and commercial then! The thing that matters is that Sly harnessed what made those characters meaningful and special and made that the focus of their swan songs, and he should be commended for that.</p><p>Now I personally think the Mexican sex slave story sounds cool. I'd like to see that movie, but the fact is that he brought that character full circle and that story has been told recently with Taken and other things like Trade. So I respect his decision to go out on a classy note.</p><p>And no I don't give a shit what his personal politics are. Yeah, he, Arnold and Bruce are Republicans. The fuck difference does that make? Should we boycott all their movies? That's stupid! Sylvester Stallone is a great writer, director, producer and actor.</p><p>So guys, RESPECT THE SLY!

    An actual, GOOD plot for Rambo 5

    by BunnyMcNibbnles

    So, Stallone canned Rambo 5 because he came up with some shitty ass, stupid plot that was derived from something else, anyway? So, there was NOTHING else he could have done? I mean NOTHING? What about the idea of having a soldier come back from Iraq or Afghanistan and he goes crazy (like in First Blood). He does something similar by going into the woods and gets chased around by the authorities. But, maybe not just one state, but the whole country. Maybe it takes days/ weeks to capture him. Rambo somehow gets involved (maybe without even being asked) .... he's trying to get through to the other soldier, but instead the guy attacks Rambo. So, now there are TWO super soldiers (young and old) killing each other across the U.S. while the authorities are pursuing them .... they go from town to town, city to city.... imagine the carnage that could happen?

  • May 14, 2010, 9:44 a.m. CST

    by Stalkeye

    I'm personally not insulting Stallone for ending Rambo (if it's true). What I get irritated about is his LYING. Like I said, he has a history of saying, "Oh it's happening," then a month later saying, "Nope, sorry, never again, "then a week later, "Shooting begins in a a month," then a month later, "I'll never done another one again." He lies and I can't stand that. Be straight with the fans, don't LIE to them. If he's really serious about no more Rambo, fine, I loved the ending of the last one.

    by RETURN_of_FETT

    It's as though some people don't understand that projects are constantly evolving. There is no one person in charge of how it will progress. Aside from that, people are allowed to change their minds you know. A lot of this is based on "floating" a plan and seeing what the public reaction is. Sly seemed to do that with his concept for Rambo V. We universally thought it was stupid. So now he has rethought this idea and decided not to piss in the pool.</p><p>And you're ATTACKING him for this? You think he should have gone ahead and turned Rambo into a sci fi Predator wannabe?Sometimes an artist falls in love with an idea formed over along time. It takes an outside source who isn't as close to it to point out it's a mistake. This happens all day, every day.</p><p>Sly made the right decision. Everyone can see that but you.

    by impetus

    ...the thankless arrogance of some talkbalkers here is disgusting. I can't think of a single actor who provides greater fan service - especially to AICN - than Sly. The Rocky and Rambo revisitations were not only great but better than they had any right to be given their long dormancy, and The Expendables looks ludicrously good. Show some respect.

    and follow the book to the letter. The book is so, SO good, Rambo kills like 30 people in it and the ending is different. It's very dark and would make an excellent movie if done well.

    Fucker DELIVERED with Rambo IV...

    by SK229

    I just saw that for the first time the other day (for one reason or another, missed earlier opportunities to see it, wasn't in the right mood), then I caught it in HD late the other night and HO-LY SHIT... there's somebody who knows EXACTLY what needs to be done to bring back a once popular movie icon and delivers AT EVERY LEVEL. He made those Burmese soldiers TOTALLY INHUMAN PIECES OF EVIL SHIT, practically approximating the Rape of Nanking, and then decimated the fuckers onscreen. Getting that kind of brutality into a movie is no easy feat and requires brass balls from a director to say, "ok, now we're going to get the shot of the child being thrown into the fire, having it's head blown off, etc." because it makes everyone uncomfortable, but he knew what needed to be done to make the right movie and he pulled it off. Gave me a new respect for Sly as an artist (and I already had a lot of respect for him). Kudos... and yeah, perfect ending to the series... however, I DO agree that he has one last score to settle, but there are other ways he can do it. Writing a book on the war veteran psyche, helping out returning vets, etc. The only other batshit crazy direction would be showing him taking over as general in a losing future war, then introducing utter destruction to the enemy.

    Asperger's syndrome, from Wikipedia: <p> "Abnormalities include verbosity, abrupt transitions, literal interpretations and miscomprehension of nuance, use of metaphor meaningful only to the speaker, auditory perception deficits, unusually pedantic, formal or idiosyncratic speech ..... Speech may convey a sense of incoherence; the conversational style often includes monologues about topics that bore the listener, fails to provide context for comments, or fails to suppress internal thoughts. Individuals with AS may fail to monitor whether the listener is interested or engaged in the conversation. The speaker's conclusion or point may never be made, and attempts by the listener to elaborate on the speech's content or logic, or to shift to related topics, are often unsuccessful ...... People with Asperger syndrome often display behavior, interests, and activities that are restricted and repetitive and are sometimes abnormally intense or focused. They may stick to inflexible routines, move in stereotyped and repetitive ways, or preoccupy themselves with parts of objects." <p>

The denoument was certainly the most intense death ballet since Oates, Borgnine and Holden took their turns on the Gatling gun.

    Did you consider...

    by Kremzeek

    maybe Sly *isn't* a liar for going back on Rambo 5? Perhaps, he changed his mind. Maybe, just maybe, he truly intended to make 5 at one time, but then as he pondered it more, he realized the character was finished to his liking and retreading it would be a mistake. Changing mind =/= liar. And if the change in plans seems to benefit the character as it does here, then I'd say it was a better decision than tacking on a shitty film and having everyone complain that it sucked and he should've ended it with 4.

    The Expendables could possibly fail

    by brocknroll

    Those who think the "Expendables" is going to be huge in box office, a lot of you guys are delusional than I thought. Who would want to see a bunch of old and washed up action stars full of muscles? The only people that would go see this movie is the few action fans that are still around. Sorry guys but I think, "The A-Team" is going to be more successful, just my prediction. Don't get me wrong, I want to see "The Expendables" myself, the film looks like a great action ride, I don't think it's going to be as big as "The Dark Knight" or "Avatar". The only people I see going to see "The Expendables" is nothing but young 20 to 30 something year olds. Don't get your hopes up if Expendables will be a hit. A-Team is gonna win, like it or not.

    So Sylvester Stallone just called...

    by donkingkong

    Hey folks, Harry here. My good bud Sly just called me back. He said he changed his mind again, and will go ahead with Rambo part 6. Simply titled "John Livingston Rambo the VI." It will be a noirish take on the sci-fi paranormal action thriller genre, set in the Mexican border town of Ciudad Juarez. Meth fueled super-soldiers, prostitution, Geritol, bowel displacement and redemption are all said to be the major themes/motifs of this film , as far as plot details go, I promised an oath of secrecy to Sly that I wouldn't say any more. What Sly promised was that this last Rambo movie will be the ultimate book-end to the series! A wonderful write off and salute to the iconic character.

  • May 14, 2010, 5:52 p.m. CST

    by Todaysfate

    RAMBO was a great film. I believe so good that most people would line up to do it again. Seems strange to hang it up after that one was so impressive. It has got to be the expendables thing. It will be aweseom ... but why try to create and build new iconic characters when you have one already. One more RAMBO movie !!!

  • May 14, 2010, 7:14 p.m. CST

    well it's trading at $100 mil on the HSX


    so that would be like a 35 million opening weekend. I'm not that excited by the trailer, it looks O.K., I'll definitely check it out, but I wonder when I should short that stock, now or before it's released?

    by lonewolfmcquade

    Sly has always striked me as the kind of man who hangs his opinions where the wind blows. First he's all talking about Rambo V, then all of a sudden he comes up with this stupid mutant soldier idea for Rambo, only to go backt to the Mexico plot only to turn aorund saying, nah, no more Rambo. You know what. I really dont care. I'm still pissed at him for writing a piece of shit script for the last Rambo and before he proofs with The Expendables that he is able to write a coherent script and dont give a fuck about what he's doing next.

My uncle Jose likes to watch Rocky 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 , 6 (rocky Balboas) wearing his boxing shorts and gloves. I am curating the first Stallone Film festival south of the border next month. Will you be attending - We have booked a room for you and your wife/girlfriend and have got extra food in for you and her. My father has booked a priest to talk about your work prior to showing a copy of your new film that my cousin will have soon on video. Hopefully this wont cost you too much. Hope to speak soon Sylvester.

    by Madmarek

    With Rocky Balboa you completed the circle and it was amazing. With John Rambo you carried on with the events started in Rambo II and III which was entertaining but to me didn't symbolize the character as well as the harsh reality of First Blood.<p> At the end of Rambo when he returns to America walking down the road I was as excited as I'd ever been about a Rambo movie. I thought this was a signal you were returning to First Blood for the final Rambo movie.<p> I feel kinda let down and disappointed that you would leave him on that road and hope you make that final Rambo movie and go full circle just like you did with Rocky. :)

    I doubt Harry cares much about the criticism. He's a guy who has turned negligible talent into a lucrative business and one that Hollywood considers a legit marketing avenue. So he gets calls from people in Hollywood who want to pimp their shit. And he likes to brag about it. Sure, it's bad form, but hey, he's never let being a bad writer get in his way, so why should he stop being a shameless name dropper? If it seems unfair, just remind yourself that there are greater things that can be accomplished than creating a successful fanboy website and try to aim for that yourself.

    Damn dude, you win the prize today. Your episode with Sly and the youtube kids was pure gold.

    But if Harry didn't do it we wouldn't get such perverse joy from ragging him to kingdom come. Sayin' you come here for the "reviews" is like sayin' you buy that porno mag for the articles...or at least we used to say that before the internet.

    So Captain Just Called

    by SilentGunman

    He says Tenille is a castrating frigid bitch, he feels like he's half a man for wearing that outfit all the time, and he also said Love NEVER keeps anyone together. Then again, he sounded like he'd been crying, and his speech was slurred, so it could have been the booze talking.

    What makes Austin not as cool as it used to be are elitist Austin assholes like yourself. You pride yourself in being "weird" and "open minded" yet despise outsiders. I doubt you're even a true local. About 99% of the people I meet here are from somewhere else. So please take your criticism and go fuck yourself.
