Quick Tribute to Sylvester Stallone

Tuesday, November 23 by

Born in the Hell’s Kitchen Neighborhood of New York City and raised in Philadelphia, Sylvester Stallone has led the charge on making a name for himself in the entertainment industry. Always the lead of the 80s action pack, Stallone has now found a 2nd career revitalizing his favorite Rocky and Rambo characters for a new generation. With The Expendables coming out on Blu-ray and DVD today, Stallone plays the grand wizard of directing/writing/producing/acting by getting together the greatest action cast ever. Finding redemption once and for all for the pain that Stop! or My Mom Will Shoot gave us.

Best Fatality: Ripping out a guy’s throat slowly in Rambo (2008)
