Stallone and De Niro come face to face (again) in Grudge Match. Here's our review...
When Rocky Balboa hit cinema screens back in 2006, there was an incredible amount of cynicism attached to Sylvester Stallone’s return to the cinematic franchise that catapulted his career to super stardom. For many there was easy mileage in making jokes about Stallone’s advancing age, or in accusing him of cashing in on an old brand in a desperate attempt to have one final box office hit, yet his love of the character and the sheer determination to write and direct a glorious last hurrah for the beloved Balboa (well, apart from the upcoming TV series Creed) worked and worked well.
Frighteningly, it’s now been eight years since Sly’s last big screen boxing opus, but he’s proved that punching the living daylights out of things »

Action star, writer and director Sylvester Stallone gave an evening of anecdotes at the London Palladium on Saturday. Here's what went on...
Sylvester Stallone was on fine form as he entertained a near capacity crowd at London’s famous Palladium theatre last Saturday night. The evening was compèred by an excellent Jonathan Ross (here far removed from his usual television interview persona), who talked with Mr Stallone over the remarkable highs and lows of his film career to date.
Stallone spoke about his way into the acting world, performing in Death Of A Salesman while teaching physical education at a boarding school in Switzerland. Sly even sang a short duet with Jonathon Ross from the main theme of Paradise Alley, written by brother Frank Stallone, and impressed the audience with a quotation from Shakespeare’s Comedy Of Errors.
Discussing one of his most famous characters portrayed on the screen, »
On Saturday the celebrated London Palladium played host to a true Hollywood heavyweight. Following a week in town doing the publicity rounds for new comedy Grudge Match, an enthusiastic and energised Sylvester Stallone took to the stage to chat about his life and career in an evening which proved to be inspiring as expected. Stallone’s incredible success really is the embodiment of the American Dream, and very much reflects the rags-to-riches, going the distance world of his most famous creation and the character which put him on the road to international success, Rocky Balboa.
After a brief montage of his work, Stallone arrived to great fanfare, accompanied by (surprise, surprise) Bill Conti’s iconic Gonna Fly Now from Rocky. Relaxed and loose, the actor had an easy rapport with the audience of dedicated fans, and his jovial, good-natured journey through his life and filmography was part amusing reminiscences, part self-help-style anecdotal wisdom. »

A kind of hopelessness had set in at the Golden Globe viewing party hosted by Fox on Sunday night. The mood only got worse and worse as the show went on. The overall sense going into the ceremony was that members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association were not major fans of Fox Searchlight’s harrowing 12 Years a Slave.
Still, there were a few chances … all of them lost. Almost.
