Sly Stallone hints at Rocky Prequel series for online streaming… Cool Idea, really…

Sly Stallone just hinted on instagram that he maybe working on a “Rocky” prequel series for online streaming. It’s a pretty cool idea really and I really think it could happen. The online streaming giants would be interested in it for sure. It’s not yet known whether it will go to Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime yet but we’ll find out soon enough if it gets the greenlight that is.

I think the prequel “Rocky” series will go to Netflix possibly ’cause after the success of the show “Cobra Kai”, the “Rocky” prequel series could be just as big.

If you know Sly Stallone on how he wrote his scripts and his ideas, he always wrote them down on notebook paper. If you can read his handwriting. Sly hints that the Rocky prequel series would be around in the 60’s, around the time all those historical things were happening that Sly listed above.

Doing a little research, Rocky Balboa was 30 years old in the first Rocky movie and it was 1976 in that film… the same year the movie was filmed in. So since the prequel TV series would be taking place in the 60’s, Rocky would be in his 20’s. So they would need a young actor in his 20’s to play a young Rocky. Good luck to them on trying to find an actor to match Sly’s look and I’m sure they will find someone with no problem.

Sly’s goal with the series that he wants the show to get into more detail of all the characters that includes Adrian, Paulie, Mickey, Apollo Creed, Spider Rico, etc. All of them. So younger actors would have to play those characters too.

Will we get to see how Rocky first met Paulie? Ya know, Paulie who is Rocky’s alcoholic friend? I’m sure we’ll get to see more of Adrian’s life and especially Apollo Creed of how he got into boxing and all would be cool. We’ll get some more insight of how Rocky got into the loan shark business with Gazzo ’cause remember, Rocky was already into that before the first movie. We’ll see how Rocky first met Mickey and how he first got into Mickey’s gym ’cause we’ve never seen any of that yet. We could get more insight on the “Duke” Evers character too. There’s so many details we haven’t seen from the first Rocky. The prequel could be pretty useful, actually. I’m all for it.

The prequel series won’t go to Paramount+ or Disney+ since Rocky is owned by MGM… so Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime is probably your best bet. I prefer it go to Netflix so everyone can see it. The ratings for “Cobra Kai” is huge at Netflix so I think the Rocky prequel show will get a huge audience.

I’m totally all for it.

Sly Stallone living in florida now???

Looks like the news and rumors of Sly moving to Florida permanently is for real ’cause here’s Sly at the DMV in Florida getting his driver’s license there.

Sly has always been a driver himself ’cause he always took himself places where he needed to go. He didn’t need a limo driver even when he lived in California for so long.

Looks like he doesn’t like California anymore and made the move to Florida which is a good move really ’cause California is horrible. Plus Florida has a better governor, Ron Desantis so I’m sure Sly will like living in FL more.

Sly no longer lives in his longtime Beverly Hills mansion as it’s up for sale:

This is why Sly Stallone deserves more respect… he definitely got mine!!!

Most movie stars in Hollywood had fame and fortune landed on their laps… ya know, just handed to them… but not Sly. He really worked hard to get where he is today.

When Sly was young in his 20’s, he was almost broke. He was living homeless for a little while and lived in shittiest apartments in his younger years… so yeah, you can betcha that a lot of the first “Rocky” was inspired from Sly’s real life pretty much when he wrote that script.

Sly worked real hard to become a huge name and become a wealthy millionaire. He certainly did not get there overnight.

Some people want to make fun of the man’s acting over the years but the man actually studied “drama” through college in Miami for a few years. Before his fame in the movies, Sly started off as a theatrical stage actor.

Yeah, Sly got his start in film in a softcore porn “The Party at Kitty and Studs” which he always admits to regretting doing but he just did it for the money and that’s it really.

Most movie stars are nothing but leftist whack jobs who always brings politics into everything but not Sly… Sylvester has always been an apolitical guy and always focused on his movie career over the years. That’s another reason he should get more respect. Most movie stars sucks and are awful people but Sly is one of the few good ones left.

He didn’t become Rocky and Rambo overnight… it took him a long road to get there. When he started getting films, he mostly did cameos and was mostly extras but he gotta start somewhere right?

His first leading role wasn’t Rocky believe it or not. It was an action thriller called, “No Place to Hide” released in 1973. A film of his I’ve never seen before but want to.

I still am a huge Sly Stallone fan even to this day… I will always be 100% loyal to this guy! I still hope to get my chance to meet the man in person if lucky enough ’cause that would be amazing.

Sly Stallone Celebrates wrap up of latest movie “Samaritan” with Cast and Crew… cool video…

Sylvester Stallone here, finishing up his latest and newest film “Samaritan” wrapping up after a little break due to covid.

Don’t know about you but Sly seems like a cool and stand up dude in real life. He seems fun to talk to and as you probably noticed, the man is so humble while on set. He shows more respect to the film crew ’cause love Hollywood or hate ’em, they are the hardest working people.

Of course, the cast and crew loves working with Sly ’cause he’s such a legend. Who wouldn’t be thrilled to be working with him?

I just heard that Sly got signed for an unspecified role in “Suicide Squad 2” which seems exciting and it’s probably gonna be another cameo appearance. After Sly’s cameo in “Guardians of the Galaxy 2”, I predicted that he’s probably gonna star in more superhero films after that one.

This film “Samaritan” is a superhero film and looking forward to seeing the film’s first trailer real soon.

Happy 74th birthday, Sylvester Stallone!!!

I will always be a huge loyal fan of Sly Stallone’s film career! I just respect the man so much. Yeah, he has made some bad films in the past admittedly but Sly himself is not perfect… even Sly himself publicly admitted that he doesn’t like some of his own movies but he is a talented actor, screenwriter and director.

I like a lot of his movies but my absolutely favorites will always be the first Rocky, the first two Rambo films, Cop Land, Cliffhanger, Cobra, Get Carter and “Creed II”. They were his best work, in my opinion.

I really dig Sly’s new white bearded and white hair look and it’s looking like he’s keeping it. I guess he got tired of dying his hair black all the time… unless he’s only keeping this look for a movie role, though???

Sly is still stuck at home like the rest of us ’cause Hollywood is out of work. Well, Sly got to spend his birthday at home at least.

Happy birthday, Sly!!!!!

Sly Stallone “Rocky” watch party from facebook last night…

Last night on FB, I watched the “Rocky” online party with Sylvester Stallone the man himself on FB. Sly Stallone was live online last night giving live commentary as he watches the first Rocky movie with the internet.

Since I’m such a huge Sly Stallone and Rocky fan myself, I just had to get on the MGM studios facebook page so I can watch it myself. Watch parties online are pretty interesting, though… that was my first watch party… watching a movie online while an actor watches it himself.

Throughout the first “Rocky” movie which came out in 1976, Sly just gave all kinds of behind the scenes insight throughout the film. I was impressed with Sly… he did a real good job and his insight about the movie was interesting. I’ve seen the first “Rocky” 100’s of times since it’s one of my favorite movies ever and after all these years I’ve seen the film so many times, there were so many new things that I learned about the film that I didn’t know about yet thanks for Sly’s commentary on it.

Sly admitted on the Watch Party that he doesn’t watch his own movies that much… so him watching his own movie was interesting too. As Sly was watching “Rocky” it was interesting watching his reaction to certain scenes especially the Rocky and Adrian love making scene in Rocky’s apartment. As you watch Sly watching his own movie and talking about it, you can tell he loves the Rocky character so much.

In this lockdown and during these hard times, even Sly himself is bored to death and he’s doing whatever to continue to entertain his fanbase. Sly is an interesting guy and he’s a very intelligent man when it comes to movie making. I’m hoping he does watch parties for all the other Rocky films and the two Creed films as well… just maybe, we’ll wait and see.

I’m glad I watched the “Rocky” watch party and hope Sly has more of them.

What’s up with Sylvester Stallone’s new look? Is it for a movie role? Probably…

https://www.instagram.com/p/B74Tjdzp7x-/

Sly Stallone is looking so different nowadays. Here is the actor debuting a new look like we’ve never seen Sly before and I’m sure it’s surprising and shocking to some people even me a little bit.

Here is Sly with a white beard,  graying mustache and silver or white hair. Some of you may ask, why is Sly looking like this? Well, it’s for a movie role obviously. Right now, he’s filming the movie, “Samaritan” and he was told by the director to look a lot older, probably ’cause it was part of the script. I believe Sly is playing the superhero Samaritan in the movie, it’s about an aging superhero and that’s what it’s looking like to me. Are we gonna see Sly in a superhero costume in this movie? Probably.

Some of you may also ask, is the beard and hair fake? Just movie magic? NOPE!!!! The beard and the hair is his natural look. This is what he’s supposed to look  like as a 70 year old man. He made himself look young by staying clean shaven and dyed his hair black. Now he ditched the hair dye and grew out his white beard for a movie role.

I think Sly looks great this way and he should keep it but he probably won’t. After he’s done with the movie, he’ll probably go back to the clean shaven and black hair look. I wish he would keep the white haired/bearded look ’cause he would look like a badass in this look for “Expendables 4”. Imagine that? He looks like a badass now with this look and still looks like a tough guy!

No matter what you think of Sly, love him or hate him, you gotta give him props for this. Showing off his natural and real look which a lot of aging men refuse to do. This is what he’s supposed to really look like and he has balls for this. You want to look at “courageous” men, you’re looking at one here.

Sly Stallone back in Philadelphia but what for???

https://www.instagram.com/p/B6IrRUmpKP3/

https://www.instagram.com/p/B6J7Dd3JyU8/

Sylvester Stallone is in Philadelphia this week for a “special something” but Sly isn’t saying anything. He’s keeping everything tight-lipped for now of what he’s in Philly for but I bet it has something to do with Rocky. As you can see, Sly visits the Rocky Balboa statue and it seems Sly is in Rocky character… wearing the Rocky hat and black leather jacket… Sly is even talking in the Rocky voice too. He has every right to be Rocky in Philly ’cause he is Rocky if that makes sense.

Anyway, the first video is Sly visiting the Rocky statue and a few minutes later, he gets mobbed by fans in Philly. As you can see in the second video, Sly was willing to hang with them for a little bit and take a group selfie with them.

It may not seem like it but Sly is a very popular actor. He’s probably one of the most popular actors in the world. He’s got fans all over the USA and he’s got fans in other countries too. His fanbase is very massive. Why? It’s because Sly rules! He’s a stand up guy with a good sense of humor, he’s very likeable plus he’s a very talented actor. Some of you may find it silly that I called him “very talented” ’cause the man is. Many of you don’t know it yet. On top of all this, the man is a freakin’ badass and a genius. I’ve always been a fan of Sly ever since I was a child and still loyal to this man to this very day.

I’ve watched his films over the years and he inspired me like everyone else. Those fans are lucky ’cause I wish I was in Philly this week so I can meet the man in person.

It seems that Sly owns the Rocky hat himself that he wore in the Rocky series over the years and it’s very rare to see him wear the Rocky hat in public… only in Philly, I guess. Even though Sylvester is 73 now, he still looks like Rocky with that hat on.

Thought this was very cool.

Sylvester Stallone responds to negative reviews of “Rambo: Last Blood” in humorous way…. check it out!!! It’s pretty funny!

Like I said, Sly has a good sense of humor and it really shows in this video clip on his instagram page above.

In the video clip above, it seems that Sly Stallone is calling out all the critics giving the movie bad reviews. In this video, you see a few British film goers complaining about the disturbing violence in the movie. It seems that this video was in direct response to author David Morrell who complained about the film… David Morrell is the original creator of Rambo and it turned out he didn’t like “Last Blood” at all.

I agree with the video above, though… you either can handle Rambo or you can’t. Rambo isn’t for everyone. People have been complaining about the gritty and disturbing violence in Rambo movies for a long time so this is nothing new. It’s just that the critics are worse with “Last Blood”.

I love movies with disturbing, gritty and graphic violence… this stuff doesn’t bother me at all. I’ve been watching horror films and violent action films for years so I’m pretty much used to it all, ya know? Even though “Last Blood” is considered an action movie, at the same time, it can be a considered a horror film too ’cause Rambo is actually pretty scary in this one and there is plenty of gore too.

If you think the violence in the latest Rambo was bad, keep in mind Sly still has “Expendables 4” being planned still so you haven’t seen nothing yet. I remember Sly saying that “Expendables 4” will bring back the gritty violence and gore but it will be worse than the previous films.

This just goes to show that Sly is the master at action movies. The man really is truly a genius… he knows how to grabs people attention whether it’s positive or negative.

The gritty violence and gore in Sly’s action movies were meant to be entertaining. Why go see an action film and not see that stuff? This is how old-school action movies used to be in the 80’s and Sly was taking “Last Blood” to its old roots. Nobody wants to go see a movie with friendly violence with less blood and less gore… go see “Expendables 3” if you want that. Without blood and gritty violence, action movies would be boring. Sly admitted that a PG-13 “Expendables 3” was a mistake and he’s going back to the dark violence in “EX4”. Once Sly does that, people will be complaining again, I’m sure.

I love Sly’s violent action movies… that’s why I watch ’em and it’s why I’m a fan of him to begin with. There’s so many action movie tough guys out there like Arnold, Jean Claude, Chuck Norris, Vin Diesel, etc…. those guys play the tough guy role pretty well but Sly is the best at it. Sly’s look… the eyes, the mouth and his speaking voice… that’s what makes him a real tough guy in action movies and that’s why fans like him. Even at 70 years old, Sly still plays the tough guy role extremely well. No one else can do it better than he can.

If you’re scared of Sly’s action movies then he’s doing his job… this is what he’s supposed to do.

Go see “Rambo: Last Blood” before it stops playing.

Why are movie critics always bashing Sly’s movies? This has been going on for years, it’s nothing new!!!

I have followed Sylvester Stallone’s movie career for many years now. You’re disappointed that movie critics are ripping apart “Rambo: Last Blood”? You see, this is nothing new. Movie critics has been bashing Sly’s movies for a few decades now. I remember they bashed movies like Rambo II and III… they’ve also bashed “Cliffhanger”, “The Specialist”, “Assassins”, “Cobra”, “Judge Dredd”,  “Demolition Man”, “Driven”, etc.

Yeah, I am a huge Sly fan but that doesn’t mean that every movie he did was really good. I’ll admit that he made some pretty big stinkers and even Sly himself admits he didn’t like some of his own movies that he starred in most notably movies like “Stop or My Mom Will Shoot” and “Rocky V”. Sly also hated the second “Escape Plan” movie. He’s not afraid to be honest with his own movies.

I never understood why Sly has to be an easy target by movie critics and some movie fans. What is it about the guy they hate so much? Is it because of his look/image? They don’t like the way his eyes and lips are? They don’t like the way he talks and they think he’s a bad actor ’cause of it? Sly’s talent has always been bashed for years and as you can see, it still goes on.

That’s okay ’cause no matter what you think of the man… love him or hate him, he is a Hollywood Icon and legend. He also has a very HUGE following of loyal fans all over the world. That’s a big part of why he started his own clothing line… https://slystalloneshop.com/?gclid=Cj0KCQjwt5zsBRD8ARIsAJfI4BiHVX2i-TSE3JoXcsXX9-M9X40eH99ihNgeyFr0emCOe4j1i_LZvocaApR9EALw_wcB

… Sly’s online clothing store is just his way of giving back to the fans for supporting his career over the years. It isn’t about the money at all when it comes to Sly’s online store. I only own one-shirt from that store which is the Rocky tank but I plan on ordering more stuff from Sly’s store soon.

Even though Sly keeps getting mixed reviews to all of his movies, I just respect the hell out of him for keeping on going in his career. The man really loves making movies and you can tell he does. I think it’s pretty clear that he does make movies for the fans. He’s pretty good with his fanbase.

A lot of people wanna bash Sly’s acting and make fun of him for his old age but Arnold’s not the greatest actor in the world and he’s a 70 year old guy too but you don’t see anybody criticizing Arnold. It’s always Sly who is the easy target.

Yeah, there are movies where Sly can really show his true acting talent… I always knew he was a good actor… I just wish people would give him a chance. In my opinion, I think he delivered the best performances in the first “Rocky”, “Cop Land” and the first “Creed” movie.

The Sly bashing is getting old and tiresome but I will always support the man. Yes, people make fun of me for being such a Stallone fanatic but I don’t care.

I think some people hate Sly ’cause he’s a good guy. He really is… yet most movie fans are supporting leftist assholes like Robert Deniro, Sean Penn, Alec Baldwin and George Clooney. Sly has always been an “apolitical” guy and he continues to stay that way… maybe that’s another reason they hate him. Most celebrities are horrible but Sly is cool, though. There’s only very few good celebrities in Hollywood left and Sly is one of them.

I have no problem of the way Sly’s eyes are, his lips and his speaking voice. I like the way he speaks and Sly is a very intelligent and honest man, though. He’s also very funny and has a good sense of humor too. There’s no ego in this man at all as he is a very humble guy and doesn’t take himself so serious. What’s wrong with that?

Sly rules. I respect the man so much and I hope to meet him in person someday still. On my bucket list!
