There’s a lot you can learn from Rambo — interpersonal skills, craft making, and international relations for starters — and IFC is just the place to give you that education. This Saturday starting at 8/7c we are showing “Rambo”, “Rambo: First Blood Part 2” and “Rambo III” back-to-bloody-back. That’s right it’s all Rambo all the time, just the way you like it.
John Rambo is Sylvester Stallone and Stallone is Rambo. (In fact, we’re pretty sure “The Expendables” actually thought they were casting Rambo in their movie. Must have been a big surprise when that guy from “Rhinestone” showed up!) Stallone is a bad ass in his role as Rambo, the tough-as-nails ex-Green Beret and Vietnam veteran with a heart of gold. It’s his milieu. Hard on the outside but soft and gooey as a warm chocolate chip cookie on the inside, like when he rescues a charity worker (Julie Benz) or his best friend and mentor (Richard Crenna). But when Rambo is scary, he is really really scary. Just ask everyone who got in his way. And if you don’t watch our all Stallone Saturday, he just might come after you.
