Also inexplicably missing: The Party at Kitty and Stud's. A classic!

Ben Boulden said...

I've seen three of the five: Nighthawks, Victory and Copland. All three are good, and I think Copland is one of the best movies Stallone has been in.

Nobody should se those, Bill! Well, I haven't see RHINESTONE but the other was appalling.

Good one, Deb.I'm sure everyone remembers his early turn in BANANAS.

Jeffrey Meyerson said...

I've seen 4 of the 5. PARADISE ALLEY is the fifth.

Bill Crider said...

You guys have seen more of those than I have, but I've seen both RHINESTONE and STOP OR MY MOM WILL SHOOT.

Jeffrey Meyerson said...

What about the arm wrestling movie?

Bill Crider said...

Oh, yeah. I've forgotten the title, but I saw that one, too.

Deb said...

Over-the-Top!

Bill Crider said...

Right. How could I forget?

Daniel Stumpf said...

COPLAND?! Stallone played the Wagner of American composers?!?!??

And what about BANANAS (1971) ?

Jeffrey Meyerson said...

Check up there, Dan. I mentioned that earlier today.

I can't imagine anyone recommending NIGHTHAWKS or VICTORY, two real stiffs. Haven't seen the others. At least they didn't include the abysmal GET CARTER.

OVER THE TOP:

Sly Stallone really believed in this movie.
He staged it at an actual thumb-wrestling tournament in Las Vegas.
His best line wasn't in the movie; Sly got it off during an interview:

"You've got guys here from M.I.T., and you've got guys here who can't spell M.I.T."

Clearly he was hoping for a wide audience ...
