Geriatric juicer, Sylvester Stallone, is filming a new Rambo!
These photos were taken in Thailand, where Rambo 4 is currently in production. John Rambo looks old and tired, but still ready to exact revenge for whatever trespasses these bastards wrought upon the good ol' US of A.
I must say I am surprised that Rambo isn't staying timely and rabidly bombing a despot in the Middle East a la Hot Shots! Part Deux.
Why am I thinking of CopLand when I see these pics?!?
There's much love for Sly & he'll always have a place in my heart but he's aging...very well! You can't turn back the hands of time...WE LOVE YA, SLY!!
Is Sly so hard up for cash that he feels he needs to reprise all his old roles? Didn't he learn from rehashing Rocky last year? That ship has sailed, Sly.
I've never been a Rambo fan, but Rocky will always have my heart. And the last Rocky film actually did REALLY well and got good reviews.
He just got busted with all the steroids. Hope his filming of this picture was over or he is going to look like a shriveled up old fart by the time they wrap the movie. Sorry but 60 year olds dont get in this kind of shape without the help of some roids.
I wouldn't mind seeing another Rambo movie IF they ignored the existence of the last two and went back to where First Blood ended.
Like the original Rocky, First Blood was a truly great movie and it's still relevant today. Unfortunately, also like Rocky, it's value has been depreciated by a string of shlocky sequels in the 1980s.
In case you haven't seen First Blood or don't remember it clearly, let me recap:
John Rambo, a special ops vet returns home after the Veitnam War only to find it impossible to fit in. He's seen too much of the horrors of war, and he simply cannot accept modern domesticity. So searching for answers, he decides to hitch-hike through America, on a mission to find his fellow military friends and see how they are fitting in to society. Along the way, he ends up in a small Pacific Northwest town where the local sheriff mistakes him for a vagrant hippy. He ends up in jail, gets abused by the police, and has flashbacks to his experiences in a Veitcong prison. He snaps into the violence he was trained to use, and ends up camping in the woods while the local law enforcement and the national guard tries to hunt him down.
It's heartbreaking stuff. It says so much about how we use and abuse our military personel, and it has a lot to say about how we live our lives every day with a false and shallow sense of security. It actually sickens me to think of how Sly undermined the integrity of the character in his sequels, transforming him from a very real soldier into a superhero for the military-industrial complex. The point was completely lost on him. Ah, but that's Reaganomics.
I was recently in Acapulco and I saw one of his homes... boy was it nice!
Sly's steroid use certainly explains why his muscles are STILL so huge--at his age! I hope that he doesn't suffer the NASTY side effects of anger and moodiness. If he does, I REALLY hope that he does NOT take it out on his wife and daughters.
He was taking human growth hormone. Just like your nanas take after menopause, or to help midget kids grow. It helps prevent atrophy in AIDS patients too. Do you know that your milk has a form of growth hormone? Yep, rbGH. With more research and refined delivery systems, HGH will be the new aspirin. That guy will probably live a long time.
Our veteran male actors really are getting old. Check this guy out:
HGH is all too often administered in too high of a dose, which causes people to basically be poisoned by it. In an article I just read (in the current Playboy, for anyone who would like to read it), it can cause yellow skin, a distended stomach, and it can end with a heart attack. The vanity industry has taken it over from the medical community and made it a hip drug for people in their thirties and on up.
The end of the article has the journalist on the phone with the widow of the doctor who began the transition of using HGH on children to older patients. She is horrified by what has happened to her husband's research.
All this to say, I think Sly has been taken in by the snake-oil men (I loved the journalist's description of one of their conferences - there is a reference to nightly orgies).
he should have let his hair go a little gray. it would have been a lot more believable.
Good for Sly! Age doesn't matter when it comes to making a good movie. There's an interesting article about that here: www.checkmessenger.net
