LA is plastered with these Rambo posters in a fevered run-up to its January 25th release.
Driving past them over and over again I've been wondering when did Rambo-- the symbol of Ronald Reagan's 1980s-- become a Cuban revolutionary? Because there is more than a passing similarity to the famous Alberto Korda picture of the communist Che Guevara that has become the uber-symbol of dissent and revolution (and fashion!) for pimply youths all around the world.
Are the guys at Lionsgate serious?
(You know, I can't post this without including the incredibly excessive trailer. Just let it load and skip to minute two. Unbelievable.)
