“Rambo is a pussy.” This month’s premium podcast brings us back to the filmography of Sylvester Stallone, looking beyond the Rocky and Rambo franchises to examine many of his most memorable one-off action movies. We start with Cobra and Tango & Cash before moving into the ’90s with Cliffhanger and Demolition Man, then conclude with one of Stallone’s most acclaimed performances in Cop Land. Discussion topics include the life span of the ’80s action movie, the prescience of Demolition Man‘s future world, Stallone’s acting range and the reality of the 4K bump. Does Tango & Cash make any sense? Did Sylvester Stallone actually ghost direct some of these movies? More importantly, why would anyone eat pizza with scissors?
