A Very Stallone Holiday

 What a better way to spend a long Holiday weekend than to take the time to be with the machismo power, the sweaty heroism and all the muscular glory that is a Sylvester Stallone movie?

The 70's

The 80's

The 90's

The 00's

And, of course, 2010's Action Spectacular:

Although I have enjoyed most of Stallone's films, he practically faltered every time he ventured outside the Action genre... It should now be noted that I do have a very special place in my heart for his directorial effort Staying Alive from 1983... Still, through the good and the bad, he trucked on. And excitingly enough, we are currently in another Stallone Renaissance. Viva La Stallone!

My personal favorites from each decade:

The 70's:
Death Race 2000
Paradise Alley

The 80's:
Rocky III
First Blood
Lock Up
Tango & Cash

The 90's:
The Specialist

The 00's:
Rocky Balboa
Rambo IV
This Year's The Expendables

Love NIGHTHAWKS. I'd rank that right up there with COPLAND as among Stallone's best.
