Today is Sly’s birthday. As some of you know, I’m a lifelong fan of the man. Looked up to him ever since I was a child ’cause I was a huge Rocky fan when I was a child. Then the Rambo movies came and I was a huge fan of those. Still am a huge Rambo fan. I’ve seen most of Sly’s movies over the years. The only movies I haven’t seen of Sly were: “Reach Me”, “Backtrace”, “Escape Plan II” and “Escape Plan: The Extractors”. I’m gonna get around to those soon but I try to see everything he’s in even if the film isn’t good.
I am definitely looking forward to “Rambo: Last Blood” and can’t freakin’ wait.
I remember in the past, though, that people hated on Sly. That was back in the days when his career was in a slump, though. People didn’t think he would turn his career around again but look at him now. He’s a box office star again.
People laughed at him when he said he wanted Rocky 6 to happen “Rocky Balboa” (2006), I’ll never forget it. People in the media criticized Sly for wanting to bring back Rocky ’cause of Sly’s age and now look at him. Sly made three more Rocky movies since Rocky V… “Rocky Balboa”, “Creed” and “Creed II”. He definitely proved the haters wrong and I admire the man so much for that. Now everyone respects Sly again and haven’t seen anything negative said about the man in a long while.
People used to make fun of me for liking so Sly so much but I’m a huge fan, I don’t care what people say. I hate most celebrities but Sly is one exception. In real life, Sly seems like a good guy. He doesn’t carry around all this fame stuff like most celebrities do, he’s humble and he’s just a normal guy like all of us.
The man works really hard to entertain us. Some may not thinks so but Sly takes his work very seriously. He always tries to make the best movie possible. Making movies isn’t about the money for him either. He makes movies ’cause he loves it and that’s what he does.
Can’t wait for “Rambo: Last Blood” as I’m definitely gonna see it as soon as it comes out!
