Favorite Movie starring Sylvester Stallone

Another 80's action star. Which movie starring Sylvester Stallone is your favorite, or his "best"?

Probably Cop Land. I've never really liked anything else he's ever done.

Rocky is probably his best movie, although I thought Taxi Driver should have won Best Picture. I voted Other because my favorite Sly flick is Nighthawks.

I read the poll too quickly and voted for Balboa, when I meant to hit Rocky. I thought you would have lumped them by character. Oh well. I dont know who would really mean Balboa over the original Rocky.

I actually think Rocky II is one of the rare cases where the sequel surpasses the original.

I'd have to say it's a toss up between Rocky and Copland. If I was forced to pick I would take Copland because of the supporting cast.

Nighthawks. I least Rutger Hauer is interesting in it. Otherwise I find Stallone unwatchable. Sort of a male Liza Minelli.

Same. Although it wouldn't be a probably, it would be a definitely and only. "Cop Land" is a terrific film with one of the best casts ever.

I was just watching my Director's Cut of Copland last night.

Rocky is such a fantastic film, deserved the Oscars it won.

One of the largest crimes in the history of film is that the chowder head kept doing sequels. If he had just left that one movie alone, it would be remembered today as the great film it was.

I voted Rocky (I accidentally typed Ricky at first and now I'm LMAO - can you imagine if that had been his name... Ricky Balboa?).

Anyway. I voted Rocky, but I've enjoyed most of Stallone's films that I have seen.

I have either hated, disliked or thought mediocre every movie that Stallone has starred in except for Nighthawks so that gets my vote.

Rocky is in my top 5 of all time. Shame about the sequels though.

I would have gone with Cop Land but Demolition Man is just too cool.

Rocky. Some of the sequels are pretty good, but the original is by far the best of the series.

Demolition Man is a guilty pleasure. It's scary how much of that movie is ever so slowly becoming reality.
