Always Sunny Season 14 Episode 2 Review: Thunder Gun 4: Maximum Cool

This review of Always Sunny contains spoilers.

Always Sunny Season 14 Episode 2

In 2019, a lot of big-budget Hollywood movies try to be all things for all people, and end up failing everyone in the process. Is this because of the pervasive liberal P.C. agenda in Hollywood? A desire to prop up new voices and reflect the diversity of our communities in our art? Or is it conservative pearl-clutching that demands our entertainment be palatable, with any rough edges smoothed off? Nah, it’s probably because of money.

In the latest episode of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, “Thunder Gun 4: Maximum Cool,” the gang are invited to attend a focus group screening of the latest film in their beloved Thunder Gun film franchise. Ready to “tear into this experience,

Sylvester Stallone Reveals Why He Hated Dolph Lundgren At First

Few rivalries in cinema are as famous as the one between Rocky Balboa and Ivan Drago. After beating Rocky’s old frenemy Apollo Creed literally to death during a boxing match in Rocky IV, Creed earned the hatred of every fan of the franchise and as such, the final match between Balboa and Drago had everyone in the audience hyped to see the latter fall. It seems Sylvester Stallone was one with the audience in hating Drago, too, and also the guy who played him, Dolph Lundgren.

During a recently interview with Jimmy Fallon, Stallone explained his initial reaction to meeting Lundgren during the audition process for casting the character and said the following:

Let me see if I can relate to you … I wanted in Rocky IV, I really wanted a big, horrible vicious guy, like a primitive, and I couldn’t find him. I was finding giant wrestlers and football players,

Sylvester Stallone on Why He ‘Hated’ Dolph Lundgren Irl When Casting ‘Rocky IV’ (Video)
With the best movie villains, you know how evil they are the moment you lay eyes on them. And that was exactly the case for Sylvester Stallone when he cast Dolph Lundgren for “Rocky IV.”

In fact he genuinely hated the guy he eventually cast to play Ivan Drago.

“He was like the real Terminator, and I go, ‘I hate this friggin’ guy,'” Stallone told Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show” Friday. “He’s just too perfect, too good looking. And if I loathe him, I’m sure the world will. He’s not really, but he looks like something that’s a thousand years in the future. This is not a guy you see waiting on your table.”

Why Rambo: Last Blood could finally fulfil Sylvester Stallone’s Expendables ‘Old School’ promise

Tom Jolliffe takes a look Rambo: Last Blood and why it could be the ultimate old school action film of the modern era…

It was the tail end of 2009. The announcement was made that Sylvester Stallone, having been on something of a comeback with successful rejuvenations for Rocky and Rambo, announced the ultimate old school action spectacular, The Expendables. In a lot of ways it of course felt very much like an action yarn of old, not least seeing the cast list with the likes of Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Dolph Lundgren and Jet Li, and whilst he’s a post millennium brawler, Jason Statham has always felt like your atypical 80’s and 90’s action star.

So this collection of old dudes in an 80’s style run and gun special had those old elements, and whilst it felt more Cannon level than say, Predator, Terminator, First Blood, Die Hard etc,

Creed II Director Really Upset Stallone by Cutting Rocky Vs. Drago Rematch

  • MovieWeb
Rocky Balboa and Ivan Drago had a bit of a rematch in a deleted scene from Creed II, and Sylvester Stallone was pretty unhappy to see it hit the cutting room floor. Fans of the franchise will remember when Dolph Lundgren portrayed the brutal Russian boxer fighting the Italian Stallion in Rocky IV. The two characters duked it out briefly once again in the axed Creed II scene, and Lundgren recently brought it up again at FanX Salt Lake Comic Convention. Here's what the actor had to say about the cut Rocky and Ivan fight.

"For some reason, they took it out. I haven't seen it cut together - I think it's on the DVD or something. But Stallone was really upset, he wanted it in there. But I guess it broke the flow of the picture somehow, so there you go. Maybe next time."

Dolph Lundgren Recounts Cut Fight Scene Between Rocky and Ivan Drago in Creed II That Stallone is Upset About

I really enjoyed Creed II, the 2018 film that followed Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan), son of Apollo Creed and protege of Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone), as he took on Viktor Drago (Florian Munteanu), the son of Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren), who had fought and killed Apollo Creed in a fight decades earlier.

The Creed films are both great, and encompass the heart of the original Rocky films while telling new stories with fantastically rich characters. But even though the film was great, there was one scene that was cut that two of the stars were pretty bummed about.

At FanX Salt Lake Comic Convention this past weekend, Lundgren chatted with Cb about the film and a fight scene we almost got to see between the iconic characters Rocky Balboa and Ivan Drago. Here’s how Lundgren described the scene:

Dolph Lundgren says he and Jason Momoa “suffered a lot” during Aquaman shoot

The Expendables and Aquaman star Dolph Lundgren has admitted he and Jason Momoa were “suffering a lot” when shooting the underwater scenes for the DC blockbuster as the harnesses were cutting into the “male anatomy.”

During the FanX Salt Lake Comic Convention (via ComicBook.com), Lundgren stated:

“So you’re basically hanging in these wires, you have the harness on, and they pull you up about 20 feet, 30 feet in the air. And you’re hanging up there trying to appear like you’re swimming when you’re talking to the other guy, and there’s absolutely nothing around, there’s just blue screen.”

“It was a new experience for me. And the hair, they dyed afterwards as well. The hair moving, it’s all added in the computer. So when I saw the movie, it was a bit of a shock,” Lundgren added. “And the thing is, hanging in that harness,
