I dont know what to say.  I have tried to fix it so it wont happen and the embeded media is set to not start automatically.  Has to be something in the browswer that causes it.

Wasn't aware of that


--- Quote from: Sosthenes ---Rocky wasn't about the dialogue. The story itself was pretty interesting. Nowadays the American Dream stories are not exactly en vogue anymore, but the Philly underdog rising to the challenge was quite good.
I liked the original movie. The sequels were  either bad or campy.

It won the award for best picture, beating Network, All The President's Men and Taxi Driver. The new movie will probably suck, granted. As long as it isn't as bad as Rocky V...

Stallone isn't the best actor in the world, but in the right role he isn't half bad. I'd rate him some notches above Keanu Reeves. He shares the same limited range of facial expressions...

Yeah well I am here in Pa outside of Philly so I heard about it when they were here filming as well as before and after filming.

While the first movie may have been about the feeling, this one just seems to be about him reviving his flagging career.

--- Quote from: Dominus Nox ---Sylvester Stallone's last good movie was the first "rambo" one, "First blood". I thought it had some good points about how vets got treated, and some decent acting scenes.

Hate to break it to you, but there is another Rambo in the works:

Rambo: IVL Pearl of the Cobra

--- Quote from: Dominus Nox ---The only other good movie stallone was in was "Death race 2000". (Sigh. Before your time, kid, before your time.)

That actually came out 3 years after I was born.  


--- Quote from: Dominus Nox ---I will say that he played "Judge Dredd" exactly as the character deserved to be played....

(Now to await flames from the JD fans out there.)

Now that was a horriable movie.   But then again there was... "Stop, or my mom will shoot"

Well, have you ever read the JD comics from england? If you have you'll understand the movie somwhat....

Sosthenes:
Well, if you've actually read the JD comics, the movie should be worse. He takes off his helmet, ferchrissakes.

I really, really liked "Oscar". Better than the French original.
Demolitian Man isn't bad either, if just for the quotes.

Admit it, it was was perfect right up until that point.  All the visuals were brilliant.  It just needed a script that didn't revolve around him removing his helmet

Demolition Man is one of my guilty pleasures
