The Filmlosophers leave a bloody trail behind them as they discuss the last film in the 37-year Action franchise, Rambo: Last Blood. The Strapping Cinephiles pull up their bootstraps and take a stab at sifting their thoughts from the rubble of the film that caps a 37 year long journey. In comparison to the first film in the series, First Blood, how does Last Blood measure up? Does Sylvester Stallone bring the nostalgia with a return to form for the series, or does the film reek of just another franchise entry cash grab? Tune in -and wear your raincoats- to find out in this week’s episode of The Filmlosophers!

The Filmlosophers take a nose dive headfirst into the world of veterans and vagrancy with a deeper look at Sylvester Stallone’s 1982 action film, First Blood. The guys dissect the work of author David Morrell and his novel adapted into the cinematic work that started a 37 year franchise. The idea of Rambo holds thoughts of guns and explosions (and definitely body counts), but what happens if you take a closer look at the film that started it all? The Dynamic Duo do just that, and dig deep into not only the impact First Blood had in the cinematic world, but even it’s implications about the treatment of Vets in the U.S., even to this day! Tune in to find out how deep we dive in this week’s episode of The Filmlosophers!

Does the weirdness and aroma of 80’s nostalgia change the pleasant vibes of its predecessor? Or do the familial memories and catchy tunes keep the beauty and wonder of The Wizard of Oz from turning entirely grey? Tune in to find out in this week’s episode of The Filmlosophers!
