In another way; differently: She thought otherwise.

But I would be interested in seeing this faux (MC)Hammer video as well.

I'm all for a Rambo IV, but this concept of going after Osama is a terrible idea.
They should do something else.

This movie will never happen, regardless of Osama's future whereabouts.
Is Sly gonna have sidewinders mounted on his walker? Is he going to slit someone's throat with his AARP card? C'mon.

I don't know about actually including Osama, but I'd be a sucker for any incarnation of Rambo IV. Ditto Rocky 6.
Am I nuts? Maybe. I'd like to think I have good taste in film, but sometimes, watching a movie with a familar character is like slipping into an old pair of shoes. Lest we forget that in the '30s and '40s, the so-called "Golden Age," film series consisting of a dozen or more entries was not uncommon. With that in mind, four Rambo flicks isn't exactly overkill.
And while everyone can feel free to make senior-citizen jokes about Sly, I could only pray to look as well-preserved as he does when I'm in my mid-50s. :)
I think some of this country's bigger victories against terrorism will be played out behind-the-scenes and away from the journalist's eye. I see nothing wrong in a cathartic dramatization of those accomplishments. There's a very fine line between doing it in good taste and doing it in bad, however.

Yeah, well where the hell was your support when I started a thread about a year ago making fun of it? :) All I heard was "give it chance".

I mean "in space"??? Jeez Louise.
btw, Hubert, if you did throw some support in and I have just forgotten, sorry. :) Remember that thread, I think I called it "My prediction for worst film of 2001" about a year ago (after I read about it at upcomingmovies.com).
I'll go out on a limb and put Rambo IV as a front runner for worst of it's release year.
