“OSCAR” With Sly Stallone is Awfully Good

Jason Adams at Joblo.com profiled one of Sly Stallone’s most under-rated movies in AWFULLY GOOD: OSCAR WITH SYLVESTER STALLONE.  Here are a few tidbits before you click over…

  • OSCAR should’ve been a homerun back in 1991. A madcap comedy was right in the wheelhouse of director John Landis, who was coming off the back-to-back success of COMING TO AMERICA and THREE AMIGOS. Landis perfectly cast Al Pacino in the lead role… (which ultimately went to Sly Stallone)
  • Stallone particularly gets an undeserved bad rap for this movie.
  • Stallone is more fun in OSCAR than Pacino ever would’ve been.

Mike Torrance and Snaps

Mike Torrance aka The Krayola Kidd is back and he’s brought Angelo “Snaps” Provolone with him!

Over the coming weeks/months I’ll be posting more of Mike’s sketch card commissions.  My goal is to eventually get a card for every character Sly has played.  We’re well on our way!

You can see more of Mike’s art at his Deviant Art siteMike is available for commissions and his prices are very reasonable.
