A Forgotten Sylvester Stallone Movie Is Dominating Netflix Today

A Forgotten Sylvester Stallone Movie Is Dominating Netflix Today
Sylvester Stallone first shot to prominence in 1976 with Rocky, which saw him score Academy Award nominations for Best Actor and Best Original Screenplay. Earning early comparisons to the authentic style of Marlon Brando, many thought that a filmmaking powerhouse had just burst onto the scene, and while Stallone did reign as one of the world’s biggest movie stars for a long time, it was the action genre that became his stock in trade.

Sly dominated the 1980s with the Rocky and Rambo franchises along with underrated gems like Cobra and Tango & Cash, before he hit a lean period in the 90s where critical and commercial acclaim was increasingly hard to come by bar the odd exception. For instance, for every Demolition Man or Cliffhanger, there was a Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot or The Specialist.

One of the better titles from that period of his career, though,

Hulu New Releases: September 2020

Hulu New Releases: September 2020
As one of the weirder “back to school” seasons in living memory rolls out, Hulu is heading back to school in its own way for September 2020.

The biggest Hulu original arriving to the streaming services stream this month is season 2 of coming-of-age comedy Pen15…which of course stars two adults who have already come of age playing their middle school selves.

Speaking of middle school, perhaps the biggest non-original addition to the Hulu library this month is the arrival of all The Twilight Saga movies on September 1. That should prove to be a real nostalgia trip for interested parties. Other library titles of note include Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle, The Terminator, and 2019’s Judy on September 25.

Bookending Hulu’s originals this month is another intriguing comedy, Woke. This series will star Lamorne Morris as a Black cartoonist who gets an unexpected wakeup call.

A Sylvester Stallone Classic Is Coming To Hulu Next Month

A Sylvester Stallone Classic Is Coming To Hulu Next Month
Most actors of Sylvester Stallone‘s age would have absolutely no interest in headlining action movies, but despite being just three weeks younger than Donald Trump and three months older than Game of Thrones veteran Charles Dance, the 74 year-old shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

Having recently played one of his most iconic characters for the supposedly final time in Rambo: Last Blood, the action legend will next be seen in subversive superhero movie Samaritan once production gets the all-clear to resume following the Coronavirus pandemic, and he’s still trying to get The Expendables 4 off the ground.

Stallone is no stranger to franchises, of course, with Rocky, Rambo, The Expendables and Escape Plan totalling a combined nineteen installments, and he recently announced that a long-awaited sequel to one of his most popular movies is finally in the works. The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 star surprised

Arnold Schwarzenegger is Demolition Man in Deepfake Video
This gives a distinct impression that Demolition Man might not have been the same had Arnold taken the role, doesn’t it? For a while, Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger were pretty intense rivals when it came to who was the top action star, but after a while, the rivalry calmed down a bit since it was kind of obvious that both men were great and that choosing between them wasn’t necessary. But had Arnold taken on the role of John Spartan its kind of indicative that it wouldn’t have been nearly as memorable since this Deepfake version gives at least

Sylvester Stallone Pays Tribute To Demolition Man With Classic Photos

Sylvester Stallone Pays Tribute To Demolition Man With Classic Photos
Sylvester Stallone is no stranger to reprising many of his big screen roles more than once, having played Rocky Balboa eight times stretching over 40 years, as well as donning John Rambo’s iconic headband in five movies between 1982 and 2019, not to mention acting as the key creative driving force behind The Expendables franchise and his continued obsession with making Escape Plan sequels that head straight to home video.

With frequent rumors that his cameo appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will lead to an increased presence in Vol. 3, the action icon could soon be adding Stakar Ogord to his extensive list of recurring characters, but with the McU’s intergalactic sequel a while away yet as James Gunn continues work on The Suicide Squad, Stallone has already lined up his next sequel.

Demolition Man has endured for nearly three decades as one of the 74 year-old’s most popular movies,

Demolition Man 2: 5 Reasons The Rumored Sequel Has Us Excited (& 5 We're Nervous)

Demolition Man 2: 5 Reasons The Rumored Sequel Has Us Excited (& 5 We're Nervous)
Demolition Man was a big hit in the 90s, starring two great action heavyweights of the time, Sylvester Stallone and Wesley Snipes, along with a fresh Sandra Bullock too. On the surface, it's a dystopian tale on a cop and a criminal, both of whom come out of their cryogenic sleep in the future to face-off with each other yet again. But it's much more than an R-rated action flick. Influenced by Aldous Huxley's Brave New World, Demolition Man also has satirical undertones for a highly unequal consumerist America of the future. Recently, Stallone announced that a Demolition Man sequel might be in making, leading to much speculation among fans of the cult classic.

Snowpiercer Episode 5 Review: Justice Never Boarded

Snowpiercer Episode 5 Review: Justice Never Boarded
This Snowpiercer review contains spoilers.

Snowpiercer Episode 5

In the film Demolition Man, when someone was sentenced to a cryogenic freeze, they were essentially stored away in a block of ice, being force-fed skills by the computer that were designed to give them something useful to do with their talents upon entering society again. For someone like John Spartan, his new little skill was the ability to knit, which he uses as an apology to Huxley after offending her during a Vr session gone wrong. However, one of the side effects of cryogenic freezing, which Spartan wasn’t supposed to have, were nightmares. Specifically, in Spartan’s case, he was thinking about his wife beating against the block of ice that used to be her husband.

Similarly, offenders sentenced to a stay in the Drawers on Snowpiercer aren’t given skills to use when they come back, but they’re supposed

Sylvester Stallone: 5 Of His Old Movies That Deserve A Belated Sequel (& 5 That Don't)
With Sylvester Stallone recently claiming that a sequel to the cult classic action movie Demolition Man is in the works, it naturally got fans thinking about which other movies from the actor’s extensive filmography deserve the same treatment – and which ones don’t.

Related: Sylvester Stallone's 10 Best Movies, According To Rotten Tomatoes

Of course, Stallone has prematurely announced certain projects before, only for them to never see the light of day, so it’s tempting to take this news with a grain of salt – but this time it actually looks like the real deal. It goes without saying that Stallone has had some clear ups and downs throughout his career – from the triumphant Rocky series to the ill-fated screwball gangster comedy Oscar – meaning that for every movie of his that deserves a sequel, there’s also one that doesn’t.
