Rambo First Blodo Part 2

It’s the podcast where a filmmaker, a comedian and an actor/brother brave their way through the jungle of the 80s moves we love, hate, hate to love and love to hate. And you better be careful, or we might pop an arrow right into your head and make EVERYTHING explode.

THIS is Epsidode 13: Rambo: First Blood Part 2, a movie selection from 1985 – and part one of our Sylvester Stallone Double Feature!

1985: Rambo: First Blood Part 2

IMDB says…  John Rambo is released from prison by the government for a top-secret covert mission to the last place on Earth he’d want to return – the jungles of Vietnam.

Deep Cut Recommendations

As we all know, IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes and awesome places like that will always give you some recommendations… People who liked THIS also liked THIS. Your Most Excellent Hosts have their own recommendations, perhaps a bit further off the beaten track.

Logan recommends the David Morrell novel First Blood and the novelizations of the Rambo movies that followed… even though John Rambo dies in First Blood.

Nathan thinks you should purchase a DVD to enjoy Rambo the Animated TV Series. Of which we will give you a little taste…

Krissy recommends the Jack Reacher series by Lee Child. NOT THE MOVIES… the BOOKS. Oh, and while we are at it why not visit Bowie Arizona… birthplace of Rambo.

Whats Up Next?

Next up is Part 2 of our Sylvester Stallone Double Feature… Rocky IV. IMDB Says… Rocky Balboa proudly holds the world heavyweight boxing championship, but a new challenger has stepped forward: Drago, a six-foot-four, 261-pound fighter who has the backing of the Soviet Union.
