Rambo Day

"Visiting somebody around here?" Rambo Day was on July 26, 2014. Dana Saint was getting married in August . . . — for a few minutes, go back to the '80s, a world where new Internet stunt videos are not posted every day and enjoy a bunch of friends celebrating marriage the only way they know how, by re-enacting the apex of Stallone's canon.

Stirlitz had a thought. He liked it, so he had another one.

A Soviet take on Rambo (brief clip; Rutube) is "unique in its violence and anti-Americanism." A Russian point of view on James Bond remarks that "so widespread was the interest in Bond that an official Soviet spy serial ... was released." But the spy novel / miniseries Seventeen Moments of Spring (somewhat digestible in 17 highlights with commentary: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17) is for interesting reasons not a Soviet counterpart to James Bond or Rambo. See also Seventeen Moments fanfic, two pages of jokes about its hero, and how he figures in the present. [more inside]

ROCKY: I mean, c’mon - do I look like a Rambo to you?

In 2010, six friends sat down to watch all four Rambo movies in one day. Inspired, they realized how f&%king awesome it would be if Rambo were to fight his doppelganger Rocky. They plotted the movie in five minutes, split up the writing chores, and each wrote a section, without any of them reading the others' work. This is that story. (Not the story of how they wrote it, but the actual script they wrote, Rocky Vs Rambo)

Rambo. John Rambo. Like you've never seen him before.

RAMBO: LAST BLOOD. Flash game. But not really a game. I think.

Rambo 4

Too much Rambo? Looks a little different than the other movies. Will this level of violence make the theaters?

So I showed up and found myself literally standing in the valley of the skanks

Sly talks! Rounds [1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9-10][11][12][13].

Let’s face it; my powers of communication were a little bit below that of a knuckle-dragging, ooze-dwelling cretin from another galaxy. Actually, I haven’t progressed that much. I just lie better. A 13 (so far)-part interview where Rocko/Ramby answers fans with oodles of extremely quotable, self-deprecating, sarcastic one-liners about the (few) ups and (many) downs of a Hollywood career. Tips on: how to get Sharon Stone naked, how to use the 3 seashells, how to direct dancers with a "crotch tartar" problem and how to bench press with owls. We also learn the final truth about some guy named Rocky - an inbred, druid outcast from Stonehenge whose specialty is weaving whistle chains and leaping face down onto pointed objects - and another one named Rambo - a savage turned loose in Microsoft’s headquarters.

Think leg warmers with guns

Son of Rambo (not to be confused with Rambo IV: Holy War/End of Peace) is a Hammer and Tongs film about two kids in the 80s making a home video sequel to First Blood. No teaser or trailer available as of post time, but there is a showcase of illustrations by hand-picked and contributing artists that claim to cover the era, themes and content of the film.

Irark: an impressive video-mashup combining audio from Rambo and CNN footage of the Iraq war. (via boingboing).
