35 Years of HUGGH! ➶

Today I learned that Sylvester Stallone and James Cameron Wrote the screenplay for Rambo 2. Wesley Morris, writing in The New York Times:

Stallone’s physique, the stunt work, the limitless carnage — they turned the blockbuster into a pornographic political event and Stallone into a permanent delusion of American supremacy.

I can see how that may be the case and I think the current idiots in charge should be sent to Mars, but this doesn’t stop Rambo 2 from being in my top-10 favorite films of all time, with a wonderful score and Rambo’s response to the question of how he will live in the end of the film:

Day by day.

If you want to be Rambo I recommend putting down your guns and picking up a video game piece of art called Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
