[quote]Rambo VS. Osama: Stallone Script in Works

NY Post

It's Rambo to the rescue. Sylvester Stallone plans to resurrect his famed macho action hero to take on the Taliban.

Stallone, 55, is at his Miami home working on the script for a fourth film featuring former Green Beret John Rambo, London's Sunday Times reports.

In the new story, Rambo parachutes into Afghanistan to battle leaders of the Taliban.

One report says Stallone is toying with the idea of his character capturing terror chief Osama bin Laden alive.

Stallone couldn't be reached for comment yesterday.

But it wouldn't be the first time Stallone's hero has gone marching with guns blazing into Afghanistan.

In his last Rambo flick, the brawny fighter went behind Soviet battle lines to rescue his former superior.

In that 1988 film, "Rambo III," Sly joined Afghan fighters to oppose the Russian invaders.

Earlier this year, Stallone said he had mixed feelings about coming back 13 years later for one more Rambo go-round.

"I don't know if I'd look good in a thong anymore. In my fantasies, I'd love to do one more, but I don't think it would be in good taste at this age," he said in an interview.

But his feelings have apparently changed since the attacks of Sept. 11.

Bob Weinstein of Miramax Films said last March that he hoped to convince Stallone to do one more Rambo movie.

"We'd love nothing more than for Stallone to be involved. We think it's a billion-dollar property," Weinstein said.

If "Rambo IV" goes before cameras before the end of the year, it could be ready by next summer.

Stallone's "Rambo" series began in 1982 with "First Blood" and gave rise to two more action movies in which the fearless one-man army kicked the villains' butts.

His three "Rambo" films and five "Rocky" movies have grossed more than $2 billion combined. <hr></blockquote>

Rambo is getting a little too old. He should be getting ready to run for mayor or something similiar.

Stallone is too old. They can go and make the movie, but they can't use Stallone.

Best Rambo spoof, and a great movie overall, at least in my youth:

Because when I think Rambo, I think "tasteful!"

Eastwood was never known for his rippling muscles in a black tank top and taking on armies by himself.

Unforgiven was pretentious, unrealistic (note the role of Morgan Freeman . . .anything unrealistic about his character and place in a time when half the country was either still in slavery or just recently out of slavery?) and just plain unbelievably bad . . .

<a href="http://www.coax.net/people/lwf/bkcowboy.htm" target="_blank">BLACK COWBOYS - PART I</a>

By Kenneth Wiggins Porter

Excerpt from the book, "Negro on the American Frontier"

[quote]Without the services of the eight or nine thousand Negroes - a quarter of the total number of trail drivers - who during the generation after the Civil War helped to move herds up the cattle trails to shipping points, Indian reservations, and fattening grounds and who, between drives, worked on the ranches of Texas and Indian Territory, the cattle industry would have been seriously handicapped. For apart from their considerable numbers, many of them were especially well-qualified top hands, riders, ropers, and cooks. Of the comparatively few Negroes on the Northern Range, a good many were also men of conspicuous abilities who notably contributed to the industry in that region. These cowhands, in their turn, benefitted from their participation in the industry, even if not to the extent that they deserved. That a degree of discrimination and segregation existed in the cattle country should not obscure the fact that, during the halcyon days of the cattle range Negroes there frequently enjoyed greater opportunities for a dignified life than anywhere else in the United States. They worked, ate, slept, played, and on occasion fought, side by side with their white comrades, and their ability and courage won respect, even admiration. They were often paid the same wages as white cowboys and, in the case of certain horsebreakers, ropers, and cooks, occupied positions of considerable prestige. In a region and period characterized by violence, their lives were probably safer than they would have been in the Southern cotton regions where between 1,500 and 1,600 Negroes were lynched in two decades after 1882. The skilled and handy Negro probably had a more enjoyable, if rougher, existence as a cowhand than he would have had as a sharecropper or laborer. . . . Negro cowhands, to be sure, were not treated as equals except in the rude quasi-equality of the roundup, stampede, and river-crossing - where they were sometimes tacitly recognized even as superiors - but where else in post - Civil War America, at a time of the Negro nadir, did so many adult Negroes and whites attain even this degree of fraternity? The cow country was no utopia forNegroes, but it did demonstrate that under some circumstances and for at least brief periods white and black in significant numbers could live and work together on more equal terms than had been possible in the United States for two hundred years or would be possible again for nearly another century.<hr></blockquote>

Totally disagree, Unforgiven rocked and I believe that's why Clint won Best Director and Best Film I think

Don't forget the timeless spoof movie Rainbo, an excerpt from imdb.com [quote]It's 1969 and Sylvester Stallone is Jim Ramroc, a U.S. Army Private who, runs away from the Vietnam war to avoid getting shot. With the FBI, the CIA, the IRS and the District of Columbia Record & Tape Club all hot on his heels, Ramroc tunes in, turns on and drops out. He changes his his name to Rainbo and joins a group of subversive, radical, dirty commie hippies. Together they concoct a fiendish plot to overthrow the United States; a diabolical scheme involving bombings, phone sex, platform shoes, Richard Nixon, radioactive dog poop, and World War III. Can this devious plan be thwarted? Can our freedom-loving democracy be preserved? Can you make any sense whatsoever out of this hilarious combination of outtakes, new picture and sound, and a Really Big Star? Find out in "A MAN CALLED...RAINBO."

Oh how I wish I was making this up.
