He was good in Cop Land...at least, I heard that he was.

Response from Head RAZZberry: And COP LAND was just about the ONLY appearance by Stallone since 1984's RHINESTONE for which he was not a Razzie nominee.  I'll admit, for Stallone, he was okay in that ONE film. But he's made about 2 DOZEN movies over the last 22 years, in most of which he's been a monosyllabic, musclebound moron who blows things up, or beats them to a pulp. If you think we've been harsh to Sly, name FIVE good movies he's been in (other than the already mentioned COP LAND and the 1976 original ROCKY). Bet you can't...

I believe that Stallone should have won the RAZZIE in 2001 for WORST ACTOR (in Driven) instead of Charlton Heston...

You know there's no school of acting that would ever cover Stallone's style and still expect to be in business...

Response from Head RAZZberry: Actually, Heston "won" as Worst SUPPORTING Actor in 2001 (beating out Burt Reynolds in DRIVEN). Stallone "lost" Worst Actor to Tom Green in FREDDY GOT FINGERED, which swept the Razzies that year...

Rocky 2 and Rocky 3 were good, just not as good as the original.  I haven't seen Rocky 4 (and I don't ever plan to) because I have heard that it is bad, but how can Stallone win a razzie for playing the same character he was nominated for an Oscar for playing?

Stallone is not everyone's cup of tea, that's for sure. But there is this nagging feeling that he really should, at some point, bow out. Hell, even Madonna and Eddie Murphy recently said they were giving up acting. Bravo! Best news I've heard in a long time. Time will tell if they keep their promises.

The naysayers haven't even watched the vast majority of Sly's movies.

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: While I cannot vouch for our other several hundred Voting RAZZIE Members, I myself have actually suffered through every film for which Stallone has received each of his record 30 nominations. And while he does occasionally rise about the low-brow expectations of his audience (COP LAND and ROCKY BALBOA come to mind) Sly is, in my estimation, a one-note, two trick pony (those ponies named Rocky Balboa and John Rambo) who should himself be amazed and grateful at the level of success his limited vision and talents have given him...

I have seen many of Sly's movies, and he does play the same one dimensional character who uses 90% of his cerebrum to converse in a level below the first Dick-and-Jane reader.

I will confess that there are times I keep playing Rhinestone over and over again (where he's dressed like a pimp on Sesame Street as he warbles "Drinkenstein").

That statement proves otherwise.

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Your syntax (and your command of English) both seem rather vague here -- Which "statement" proves WHAT "otherwise"...

Although I can't defend Stallone's acting, since "Rocky 1" and "Copland" are the only two good examples, I do agree that he should be spared for 2008 because there are biggest fish to fry like Uwe Boll, Seltzerberg, and the hacks behind "Meet Dave", "Love Guru", "Hottie and Nottie", and "HSM3".

You should say, Stallone is a great actor! I totally disagree with all wins and nominations he got, except for Rambo 2, 3 and Rocky 4 (but just for the acting, the directing was a stupid choice of Razzie)!

Stallone is charming, touching, inspiring, tallented... He is far from the other stupid un-tallented action guys who is Arnold Schwarzenegger who in my opinion should have took all the bad comments and Razzie nominations and wins that Stallone won!

Come on, what does make the stupid comedies that Schwarzenegger made better than the Stallone's comedies that are in my opinion entertaining (Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot was pretty funny and I don't see what Stallone did bad in this movie to receive ''Worst Actor'')!

After a long time analyzing the RAZZIEs' history, I knew there were many, far worse movies than Sylvester Stallone's. For 1988, I didn't like that Cocktail got Worst Picture over Mac & Me AND Caddyshack II, but part of me was grateful that "winner" wasn't Rambo III. For 1990, I would've picked Graffiti Bridge for Worst Picture, but again, I also wished I could consider myself grateful it wasn't Rocky V. Then, for 2008, I breathed a BIG sigh of relief that Rambo IV evaded any RAZZIE nominations. My colleagues loved that movie. Compared with Step Brothers, it was easy to understand why, though Rambo IV wasn't great. Perhaps the Worst Picture category's biggest enigma is Rambo: First Blood II beating Revolution in 1985.
