:hide:

I admit it. I freaking loved it. Every unambiguous second. Ever since Smart Ass Tom Pasko made me read David Morrell in 9th grade, he's been my fav summer reading guilty pleasure.

Reminded me of Rocky Balboa and made me think about Sly.

He took two quality movies that had some delpth (Rocky, First Blood) and absolutely prostituted them nto crap to get rich as hell. Then to make good or himself he wrapped them up in a quality manner.

I think this movie was either ignored or panned, but I have to admit I was into it. Nothin' quite like Johnny cutting them to ribbons.

Didn't even know about it. Living under a rock I guess.

I loved First Blood.

Loved First Blood. Actually the one good thing my old man and I did together was go see this at the LaSalle on E185th.

Here's a decent review from the NY Times (1982)
http://movies.nytimes.com/movie/review?res=9E0DE0DB143BF931A15753C1A964948260


Some good quotes too
Trautman: God didn't make Rambo, I made him!

Rambo: I could have killed 'em all, I could kill you. In town you're the law, out here it's me. Don't push it. Don't push it or I'll give you a war you won't believe. Let it go. Let it go.

Preston: Hunting? We ain't huntin' him, he's huntin' us!

Teasle: They found Rambo's body. As a matter of fact, it stole an army truck. Blew up a gas station the other side of town.
Trautman: The kid is resiliant.

Teasle: Are you telling me that 200 of our men against your boy is a no-win situation for us?
Trautman: You send that many, don't forget one thing.
Teasle: What?
Trautman: A good supply of body bags.

And I can't forget a fine performance from a young David Caruso
Galley Boys are slop on top of a so-so burger and a bun you coulde get from a Covneninet food mart generic pack. They the Antoine Joubert of burgers; soft, sloppy, oozing grease and cheap sauce and extremely overrated by a biased fan base. Proof that if you throw enough cheap sauce shit on a burger you still can't overcome the lame burger. -JB
