Who needs dialogue? Sylvester Stallone has a rare skill in conveying meaning via a series of rather unusual noises...
Most actors need a fancy script to help them get their character’s message across – the written word an important tool in their performer’s kit. A lot of run-of-the-mill ‘talky’ actors just stick with that; your Robert De Niros, your Leonardo Dicaprios – not 2016 Best Supporting Actor Oscar (should have won) nominee Sylvester Stallone. He can communicate a character’s inner anguish or joy in a myriad of quick and effective noises: he doesn’t need anything as mundane as words. Don’t believe us?

Alexandria's routines start to chafe in the latest gory episode of The Walking Dead season 6, Twice As Far...
This review contains spoilers.
6.14 Twice As Far
The curse of The Walking Dead returns. Throughout the show's run, it's seemed that the moment a character came to some sort of realization about life in the post-apocalypse, they spent a lot of time making speeches about it and then immediately died. That seemed to be changing a little bit, with more characters appearing to be allowed to grow without immediate death, and then Denise happened. Two steps forward, one step back, all in the name of shock.
Denise, like all the Alexandrians, has been trying to adapt to a world in which they haven't been forced to participate until Rick and the gang arrived and shattered their illusion of safety via misadventure. The Wolves came, Walkers came, and everyone in Alexandria banded together, »
39 years ago, an unknown actor named Sylvester Stallone received his first Oscar nominations (best actor, best original screenplay) for the 1977 best picture winning boxing film, Rocky. A series of sequels and a handful of other franchises later, Stallone finds himself nominated once more, this time in the supporting category, for the character who made his career in Creed.
Stallone seems to be the likely front runner in this year’s best supporting actor race, scoring knockout wins at both the Golden Globes and the Critics’ Choice Awards, however his career has been far from stellar since his last nomination in the original Rocky.
Over the course of his nearly four-decade-long career, Stallone has appeared in a number of movies that have been panned by critics and audiences, alike. In fact, the Golden Raspberry Awards, popularly known as the Razzies, “awards” the worst actor in film »

If you’re watching a movie with a scene where the indestructible cop hero clings to the roof of a speeding vehicle, it was probably made in the 1980s. In a lot of these films, the driver doesn’t attempt to swerve or hit the brakes, he just holds his hands in front of his face before crashing through a plate glass window.
At Cannon Films, the home of Chuck Norris and Charles Bronson, B-grade action films seemed to roll off the conveyor belt every week as founders Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus sought to fashion new stars in the mould of Arnold Schwarzenegger. These cheapies were cranked out by no-name filmmakers, scored by musically ungifted composers who owned an inordinate number of synthesizers and invariably concluded with freeze-frame endings following the climactic rooftop confrontation.
Elsewhere, Sylvester Stallone was setting the standard for over the top, wildly jingoistic »

While it seems like the Rocky franchise will continue onwards, the same unfortunately can't be said for Sylvester Stallone's other iconic role, that of John Rambo. Stallone kicked off the Rambo franchise with First Blood in 1982, which was followed by Rambo: First Blood Part II in '85, Rambo III in '88 and finally, Rambo in '06. Ever since the last film was released... Read More »
