Someone please, STOP this man before he can make Rambo 4!

I was at a party recently where I overheard an MGM exec talking about Rocky Balboa -- saying that the studio considered it embarrassingly bad, and that that was why they moved its release up from next February to this December, to unload it before word gets out about how it totally sucks...

Okay, can ANYONE name more than TWO good movies that Stallone has ever made? Most people would defend the original 1976 Rocky (which is now 30 years ago!) and some people might step up to argue that Cop Land was okay. But other than those two, is there even ONE good title this muscle-bound Bozo has been associated with??

DIDN'T THINK SO...

Every time I watch even a moment of the original Rocky, which is all I can handle, I ask myself, "what was the Academy thinking?"  Stallone has made bad film after bad film, and no one deserves a lifer Razzie more.

If you check what films ROCKY beat out as Best Picture of 1976, you'll find that among them were such certified (and WAY better) classic films as NETWORK, ALL THE PRESIDENT'S MEN and TAXI DRIVER. Which leaves us wondering "what was the Academy thinking" ever so much moreso...

FYI: Here's a LINK to the IMDb Page for the 1976 Oscar nominnes and winners. At least Stallone didn't win for Best Actor or Best Screenplay -- Both of those, deservedly, went to NETWORK (Peter Finch as Best Actor and Paddy Chayefsky for Best Original Screenplay)...

Why not? If the Little Gold Naked Men give out the Thalberg and Hersholt
awards, why can't the RAZZIES give out the Stallone , Zadora and/or
Madonna awards?

I hope the Razzie people do this, wouldn't that be amazing if he showed up to accept it?

Without the Sly Guy producing all those brainless, voilent, crappy movies in the 80's and 90's, the Razzies wouldn't have had half the crap we needed to keep the movie industry in line.

I say, Give him the award, and a Golden Razzie key chain as well!

WHAT! Who said no?! They need to be forced to watch hours and hours and hours of Stallone movies. That should change their mind...
Here's lookin' at you, Kid.

Here is an idea...instead of a gold Razzie key chain, we could all pitch in and buy him a gold Razzie watch. That way, he'd know when its time...to NOT consider making another movie!

 I voted no, I remember I liked "Rocky", I lived in Brooklyn at the time and didn't think he talked funny.   I saw and disliked the first sequel and didn't even bother to watch the others.   I liked him in "Carter", and fell asleep during the mountain climbing movie.  He has made himself into a one-man independent movie producer, and thereon lies his problem.    No one has ever directed him, he has never had to share second billing, he has never learned how to "act".  He has instead learned how to present himself as a tough, patriotic, action hero.   If you like that style of movie, he's OK.   What I dislike are actors and actresses who claim to be "serious professionals" and yet continue to make horrid "asses" of themselves.   Kevin Costner comes to mind right away.  Lopez, Madonna, Simpson,  gee, why do these names remind us of skunks?

Response to Brierfox:

As I have stated in this forum (as have you) I agree Rocky's 1 and 2 were the best work of his career. But name me 3 movies (or even one) that he did  from 1980 till now that have at least an average approval rating from the critics (or anybody else for that matter). If you ask me, he has gotten more deformed and mentally unbalanced over time. It seems he is just trying to regain his glory days, but instead seems to be making himself into a total clown. As you probably guessed, I voted "Yes." I just cannot see him not get a career RAZZIE. And I am pretty sure The HeadRAZZberry has already made it, and just wishes he could have given it to Sly sooner than 2007.

I'm not surprised to see the vote results favoring YES over NO -- But at the time I'm writing this, the ratio is about two-to-one YES.

Maybe we'd better get started editing that Stallone Worst Career Achievement montage NOW...

Just tell is whatcha need, Head RAZZberry: 2/3rd's of us are right behind you !

I still think that a Gold Razzie Key chain would be cool. It would go so well with those suits that make him look so much smarter than he really is...

Erm...

"The whole world"?

That's a bit of an overstatement.Just a bit...

Ok... I am half Italian/half Swedish, I was raised in Italy, France and Belgium and I now reside in the UK. You have chosen to speak for the WHOLE WORLD, so may I now defend the taste of the countries I have a link to? THEY do NOT LOVE "Sly". They pretty much couldn't care less about him.

P.S. I do not dislike him personally, as I do not KNOW him (these are not personal attacks, Sly Fan#1!). I just don't really like what I have seen of him/don't care much for him/ hardly ever even remember he's still around. And I don't like to see such general statements being made. That's all.
