Rambo (2008)


#181

“Rambo IV: First Blood Part III”, or “Rambo: Still Kicking Ass at 60 (but with my shirt on)” would have been better titles.


#182

I like it myself. It’s simple…RAMBO!


#183

It’s confusing as hell though, imagine some kid wanting to rent these movies 30 years from now. He’ll get a migraine just trying to figure this shit out.


#184

Hehe, at least something will be complex about these movies ;D



Really looking forward to this though :slight_smile: Been a while since I enjoyed some mindless coolness 8)

You gotta love the poster it just screams badass:







Read this on wikipedia:



So far the latest installment of the Rambo franchise has undergone many name changes, and has been known as the following

John Rambo - mirroring the final installment of the Rocky Franchise, Rocky Balboa, Stallone decided upon using the full name of the action hero

Rambo IV

Rambo IV: In the Serpent’s Eye

Rambo IV: Pearl of the Cobra

Rambo: To Hell and Back - On October 12th, Lionsgate announced that the film title was being changed to Rambo: To Hell and Back. After some negative feedback from the online community, Stallone spoke with AICN’s Harry Knowles and is quoted to have said:



“Lionsgate jumped the gun on this. I just was thinking that the title John Rambo was derivative of Rocky Balboa and might give people the idea that this is the last Rambo film, and I don’t necessarily feel that it will be. He’s not an athlete, there’s no reason he can’t continue onto another adventure. Like John Wayne with The Searchers.”

i hope he does Death Wish Next. Then another Rambo movie. And after that he should remake Death Wish III.


#187

Haha, this chart is hilarious. It contains slight spoilers for the upcoming Rambo movie, i Guess.








#188

I just saw Sly on my local TV station. He was talkin about the movie. Looks cool!


#189

I can’t wait for tonight! I’m so AMPED about this movie! I was such a huge Rambo fan as a kid growing up, this will be like Rocky was for me, as I was always a huge Rocky fan.


#190

Have you seen the tagline?



"Heroes never die… They just reload."



I would watch any movie with a tagline like that.


#191

This movie was WAY better than even I, a die-hard Rambo fan, thought it would be. I wasn’t let down at all! Infact, I was impressed. Just like with Rocky Balboa!



SLY STILL ROCKS!



(I’m a bit partial)


#192

the movie was incredibly dull and underwhelming

at only 90 minutes, you’re left with a “that was it???” after the movie is over…

nice try, Sly, but a miss…

if you watch it in Thailand you get punished - as if just having watched Rambo weren’t already worse than being stabbed in the eye with a sharp stick…


#194

Hahaha LMAO :stuck_out_tongue:



They should send Rambo to Thailand next :stuck_out_tongue:



John Rambo V: First eyestab


#195

I watched it twice already in theatre. it’s everything Rambo is supposed to be. Sly is King. Now bring on the DEATH WISH remake!

Yeah, I would have preferred that. I remember when it was going to be called that. It would have been a good change for a new era.


#197

in Germany it’s still called John Rambo, because first blood was called Rambo here, it’s all very confusing. they called part two Rambo - First Blood part II, which is weird in the first place, herein germany they called part two “Rambo 2 - der auftrag [the mission]”


#198

Rambo got an R18+ rating here. Which is fine with me, but it means my brother can’t see it at the cinemas. He’s going to be pissed.

Not a problem. My brother just paid for something else and snuck in to see it tonight. He said it was awesome.
