Rambo. While I’m not a HUGE fan of the franchise, I do think the first entry is a really good movie. All John Rambo wanted was a bite to eat and to be treated like a human being. He found neither in the small town he was booted from in the original Rambo, however, he did feast upon revenge.
Now while I haven’t seen any of them in quite a while, I remember the first couple of sequels as being subpar, in the general fashion that happened to sequels in the 80s. Recently, the Alamo Drafthouse announced an upcoming five movie marathon that will include the final installment into the Sylvester Stallone driven franchise, Rambo: Last Blood.
Alamo Drafthouse Programmer Cristina Cacioppo had the following to say in a statement.
“This marathon is for the ultimate Rambo fan. And there’ll be so much to see, the thoughtful drama of First Blood, the action spectacle of the middle installments, and finally, how it comes to an end in Last Blood.”
If I lived near an Alamo Drafthouse I would probably go to more of these types of events, even though as I mentioned above, I am not a big fan of the franchise as a whole, but Alamo puts on some really cool events at times. Alas, I do not live within a reasonable distance of an Alamo location, but for any of you that do live nearby, you can find a list of the marathon locations and dates below.
