On February 1, 2013, WhatCulture! posted Sylvester Stallone: 5 Awesome Performances and 5 That Sucked.
- According to WhatCulture! 5 that were Awesome: Rambo [First Blood and sequels], John Spartan [Demolition Man], Gabe Walker [Cliffhanger], Freddy Heflin [Cop Land], and Rocky Balboa [Rocky and sequels].
- Their Choices for Not-So-Awesome: Judge Dredd [same name], Ray Quick [The Specialist], Marion Cobretti [Cobra], Jack Carter [Get Carter], and Joe Bomoski [Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot!].
To Awesome I would delete Spartan and Walker to make room for Jack Carter and Deke Dasilva [Nighthawks]. To Not-So-Awesome I would delete Carter and add Nick from Rhinestone. – Craig

On September 16, 2011, The Huston Press posted a piece by John Seaborn Gray titled, The Five Worst Music Movies Ever. Not surprisingly, Rhinestone made the list. Surprisinly, it came in at #5.
According to this list Rhinestone is better than The Jazz Singer starring Neil Diamond, Glitter starring Mariah Carey and Cool as Ice starring Vanilla Ice. Is that a backhanded compliment to Rhinestone since Sly isn’t a singer and Neil Diamond, Mariah Carey and Vanilla Ice are. Who knows?
What’s crazy is that the worst “music movie” on the list is Staying Alive. C’mon. There’s no way that Staying Alive should be considered the worst. Heck, I don’t even think it should make the list.
So Sly dodges the bullet of worst music movie with Rhinestone and still comes in at #1 worst with Staying Alive. That’s the name of that tune… and I ain’t singing along.
