    When reports surfaced over Sylvester Stallone’s apparent desire to take on Isis in Rambo 5, his representative stepped in to claim they are untrue. A rumour circulated that Stallone was present at this year’s Comic-Con in San Diego to announce further details for the action sequel, which he initially confirmed last year on Twitter. “We have teams scouting Iraq and parts of Syria where Isis have their greatest strongholds,” the star reportedly said on a panel. “We’re working with the locals there to help deliver the most intense and realistic Rambo movie experience ever.” But his representative came forward to...

    Sylvester Stallone: "We have teams scouting Iraq and parts of Syria where ISIS have their greatest strongholds." Punching up the star-power at San Diego's Comic-Con on Friday, Sylvester Stallone made nerds swoon with talk of Creed, the newest installment in the Rocky film franchise But according to the Washington Times, Sly raised even more eyebrows after hinting at a new Rambo movie pitting the legendary Vietnam veteran against a scourge worse than communist jungle guerrillas, the jihadist desert terrorists of the Islamic State. "We have teams scouting Iraq and parts of Syria where ISIS have their greatest strongholds," said the...

    This weekend, you can see Sly lay waste to hundreds of fools in The Expendables 3. But the man formerly known as John Rambo is, surprisingly, one of the NRA’s most reviled stars. On Friday, The Expendables 3 hits theaters. It’s the third installment in the star-studded, old-school, bullet-riddled action series spearheaded by Sylvester Stallone—of the Rambo franchise or, for the less-discerning filmgoer, Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot. The latest Expendables flick was never destined to garner much love from film critics. “You need The Expendables 3 like you need a kick in the crotch,” wrote Variety’s Justin Chang....

    When I was thirteen, I played a whole lot of Dungeons & Dragons.  I was even the Dungeon Master for a while.  I designed my own campaigns, with characters and towns mapped out.  Old school.  None of this video game online stuff.  Sitting around a table with a bunch of nerds in a basement, with the Dungeon Master guide, combat tables, and a jar of 6-, 12-, and 20-sided dice (don’t judge me, you did stuff you don't talk about, too). This is Exodus: Gods and Kings.I can imagine Ridley Scott and his writing team of Adam Cooper, Bill Collage, Jeffrey Caine,...

    KENNESAW, Ga. — Police say two people are in critical condition after a gunman opened fire at a FedEx station outside Atlanta, injuring six people in all. Cobb County police Sgt. Dana Pierce also says the suspected gunman worked for FedEx as a package handler. He was found dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound about an hour after someone called 911 early Tuesday. One employee of the package sorting facility in Kennesaw north of Atlanta said the gunman had an assault rifle, a knife and bullets strapped across his chest "like Rambo." The gunman's identity has not been released.

    No amount of family counseling is going to help here. A Washington State man had to be airlifted to the hospital after his daughter shot him with a hunting bow because he took away her cell phone, authorities said. The 15-year-old girl refused to let her father use the phone to call for help Wednesday evening, forcing him to crawl to a neighbor's house for help, KOMO-TV reported. When officers arrived at the house in Tahuya, Wash. - about 35 miles west of Seattle - the girl fled into the woods with the bow and 35 arrows. A SWAT team...

    June 12, 2010 Two killed during police raid on ‘Russian Rambos’ hideout Tony Halpin, Moscow The hunt for a vigilante gang known as the Russian Rambos ended yesterday when two men died and two surrendered during a raid on their hideout. Police and gunmen exchanged fire during a five-hour siege of a house in the eastern city of Ussuriysk, before officers stormed in. Two suspects, aged 21 and 23, were killed, although investigators said it was unclear whether they had been shot by police or had taken their own lives.

    During the filming of the movie The Expendables, star Sylvester Stallone suffered a broken neck during a fight scene with "Stone Cold" Steve Austin. "Actually, my fight with Stone Cold Steve Austin was so vicious that I ended up getting a hairline fracture in my neck. I'm not joking. I haven't told anyone this, but I had to have a very serious operation afterwards. I now have a metal plate in my neck."

    Hollywood test audiences are always giving low ratings to movies with depressing endings, sending them back to the editing room for a little “cheering up.” But it’s not just the grainy independent films about forbidden romances and snooty aristocracies that get recalled. Some of Tinseltown’s biggest blockbusters got a heavy dose of Paxil...

    Police say a man walked into the Subway sandwich shop on West Little York and tried to rob it. But instead of getting the cash, the woman behind the counter served him a "knuckle sandwich." “When the register opened, he lunged over and grabbed it. My initial response was to hit him. So I hit him,” Subway employee Yava Matthews said. Police say Tracy Armstead, 29, attempted to rob the sandwich shop on Monday night. When Matthews hit him, he fell back into the wall, but he still had the cash drawer in his hands. “When he proceeded to run...

    Oscar-nominated actors are the most dignified members of our species. They play the serious roles that inspire us and hold a special place of reverence in our culture. But not in Japan. In a country where demoralization is the national pastime, our revered actors, Academy Award nominees and winners both, sell their own dignity for a paycheck because they assume we Americans will never see it. But thanks to the Internet, we can celebrate their shame any time we want.

    Nelly Avila Moreno, FARC's 'Karina', captured by Colombian forces in war on drugs By Jeremy McDermott in Medellin Last Updated: 2:16AM BST 20/05/2008 One of Colombia's most renowned rebel fighters, and the guerrillas' senior female commander, has surrendered in yet another victory for the US-backed war policy of Oxford-educated President Alvaro Uribe. Nelly Avila Moreno, the notorious FARC rebel better known as Karina, had a £400,000 bounty on her head "We have been after this woman for a long time," said Defence Minister Juan Manuel Santos, "but she always gave us the slip."

    One of the most ironic twists to the ongoing mission in Afghanistan emerged from the NATO meetings held in Brussels last week. With member countries either reluctant or unable to add military resources, NATO is now seeking assistance from Russia, its erstwhile Cold War enemy and one-time "evil occupier" of Afghanistan. In fact, the irony is so thick that we should first roll back decades' worth of propaganda and start at the very beginning. NATO was formed in 1949 as a collective self-defence alliance to prevent any encroachment of the Soviet Union into Western Europe. The Soviets responded to this...
  • Stallone challenges military officials (Myanmar)

    LOS ANGELES - Sylvester Stallone says his latest "Rambo" film and its tag line are inspiring real-life opponents of Myanmar's military rulers. "Either live for something, die for nothing — it's your choice," the 61-year-old actor-director said Saturday in a phone call from Paris, where he is promoting the movie, the fourth in a series. "Students have now used this film as a rallying point and are using the quote, thinking maybe the American military will intervene and save them," he said. "Rambo" has the disaffected Vietnam vet John Rambo trying to find missionaries captured by Myanmar soldiers, who are...

    Today President Bush traveled to West Virginia to attend the annual Congress of Tomorrow Luncheon. There the president spoke about the economy and the need to renew the Protect America Act, which modernizes outdated foreign surveillance laws. The law is set to expire in just seven days. Our most solemn duty is to protect the American people, and I appreciate the fact that we've worked closely together over the last seven years to do just that. That is our most solemn duty. Fortunately, we've got a lot of good people working hard to help us protect America. And these professionals...
