If you’ll remember from a few months back, this was one of my top four to see at the movies this summer. Last night, I took my first trip to the historic Belcourt Theater(http://www.belcourt.org/venue). It was opened in 1925 for silent films, and somehow, has flourished as a hot spot for culture, and those “indie” films and documentaries that don’t show up at the Mega-plex.
I ended up dragging about seven guys, some of them, never having heard of the film. They were a bit suprised to only see Sylvester Stallone in small clips on VHS. Thankfully, the majority of them were glad they came. It was a unique movie experience and the film had a huge amount of heart. With the 80’s as a back drop, without giving too much away, it was a great movie about imagination, true friendship, and ………. Rambo. What more do you really need to know?
If you can’t find it at a Theater, rent it, and don’t forget your childhood either.
The movie definitely had “skills”.
