Ernest “Jazzman” Resendes wants everyone to know that the current issue of PREMIERE (Feb 2003) lists “The 100 BEST action movies on DVD” and you know Sly was on there. Here is what it said:
# 53.NIGHTHAWKS (1981, GOODTIMES ENTERTAIMENT )
Sylvester Stallone made his finest action film long before he got locked in the Rambo-Rocky sequel cycle. In this gritty and unsentimental police tale, Sly and his partner, Billy Dee Williams, chase a chillingly cut-throat international terrorist ( Rutger Hauer ) through the streets , clubs and subways of New York City.
# 63. RAMBO: FIRST BLOOD PART II ( 1985, ARTISAN HOME ENTERTAINMENT )
Sylvester Stallone‘s John Rambo goes back behind the bamboo curtian to rescue American POW’s in Vietnam from the clutches of Commie rats.Despite the pandering politics, the movie’s attitude is solidly antiauthoritarian, and the super cut, tanned Stallone is fun to watch when he lets the machine gun rip.
Great choices I thought !
Thanks to Jazz for sending! – Craig Zablo
