EW: Sly’s Worst Movie

The December 2, 2011 issue of Entertainment Weekly has a cover story called, “Stars’ Worst Movies.” Sly makes the list with “Eye See You” and here’s what they say…

* Sylvester Stallone *
Eye See You (2002)

Costarring: Tom Berenger and Charles Dutton
Tagline: “Survival is a killer.”

Originally titled D-Tox back when it still had hopes of a wide release, this sluggish stockpile of stale serial-killer cliches spent three years in limbo before eking out a blink-and-you’ll-miss it theatrical run.  Sly plays an FBI agent haunted by the murder of his girlfriend with a power-drill and is sent to a remote clinic for post-traumatic stress disorder.  As a blizzard rolls in, one patient starts offing his fellow inmates, and it’s up to you-know-who to save the day.  The punny title refers to the killer’s calling card – in one case he writes the letters “ICU”inside his victim’s eyelids.

Most Embarrassing Moment: Never one to let a double entendre go to waste, Stallone impales the killer on a spike while uttering, “I see you.  You see… this?”

I’d have thought they would have selected “Stop or My Mom Will Shoot” or “Rhinestone.” I guess those would have been too easy. - Craig

I scanned the photo above from the latest issue of Previews which is a catalog available through comic shops.  If you’re interested in one of the action figures, I’d put in an order soon.

Sly Confirms: EX2 Poster Unofficial

Hey SZoners, I just received the following e-mail from Sly:

+++

The poster that everyone is seeing on line is completely unofficial and bogus. The official poster is far from being completed so unfortunately people like to pull pranks. Please everyone spread the word that the real poster won’t be out for several months.

Best,

Sly

So there you have it.  Someone with some skills decided to have a bit of fun.   Thanks to Sly for letting us know.  - Craig
