    Just for the heck of it... Which one(s) would you like to see done next by Sly?

    I'm such a Sly whore that I would pay to see all 3. Especially since he's now twice as buffed as in Rocky 6 and Rambo 4. I know Rocky 6 had a perfect ending, but he was so close of winning in that one, it would be "logic" for him to train some more to finally beat Dixon. Would be tough to not fall in the self-parody though, as it would be more or less a repeat of Rocky 2.

    Rambo 5, I hope they don't do that prequel thing and instead do what was planned before.

    Expendables 2, it's a given.

    One thing for sure; I hope he doesn't waste 2 years of our time working on that Edgar Allan Poe project he wanted to work one a few years ago.

    Rocky-no way in hell

    Rambo- might work if it's a torch passing type story

    Expendables-easily done as long as he steps aside and lets Statham and crew be the main focus.Bring in a couple more 80's/90's action guys to play the villians and you have mangasm part 2.

    I think he recently suggested that he's too old for Rambo now, and that there might be a prequel or two.

    A further Expendables film seems inevitable.

    Rocky: The whole purpose, win or lose for him in 6, was to kill the beast that is in the "basement". He wanted to show he still had it in him to fight for one last time over the years. Even seeing the "winning" ending, I almost find the losing ending more fitting, and even though he lost, it showed he had more guts than Dixon gave him credit for, and he went all the way to the end.

    Rambo: Again, it ended the way it should have. He finally got home. It just did the trick.

    Expendables: I haven't got a chance to see it, but can already tell that there is plenty of room for a sequel.

    Expendables 2.

    Maybe Jean Claude and Steven Segal might want to join in the next one. They can be on Arnold's team.

    Expendables 2 please. I'd like to see Stallone become to action films what Clint Eastwood has done for drama. Let's see more balls to the wall action movies.

    Have you ever stopped to think that Jason Statham, Vin Diesel, and the Rock are like the biggest action movie stars these days? Kinda sad really. Even the new Conan looks like some clean faced spanish model type dude. We need more big uglies kicking ass. More Ray Stevensons.

    Stallone has proven in the past (the first Rocky, First Blood, Cop Land, etc) that he is a very good actor and doesn't have to solely rely upon the balls-to-the-wall action flicks.

    I, for one, would love to see him try his hand at that Edgar Allen Poe film that he's been itching to do for quite a while now. After suffering so many injuries on the set of "Expendables" (among which was a broken neck while filming the fight scene with Steve Austin), I think it would be in his best interest, health-wise, to go after that next.

    However, as successful as "Expendables" has turned out to be, he may want to go ahead and do another one before it's too late.
