The past couple nights in camp I rewatched First Blood, First Blood 2 and Rambo 3...dude...I forgot how bad ass John J Rambo is. Not just Rambo himself but the story line and everything. King shit cops, beaurocrats, bad dudes, good rebels. I donno jus sayin' those movies are deeper than a green beret and his knife.

No? The first one at least is worth a boo. Filmed an hour from my town.

Last movie I watched in a cinema was "The Sting". I can't comprehend watching TV while camping. I read the book First Blood and it was good. Movies are a waste of the time I can be learning something. My boy Donny and I sleep in a tent from the beginning of May until near freeze up just to enjoy the air and sounds. Plus on a day with 80+F temps the tent is cool by 10pm and beautiful 50F by 4am.

The 4th one was hilarious. I just watched it for the first time within the last few months. I did not expect it to be a cop killing movie.

Wasn't Rambo an Al Qaeda agent?

I watched First Blood after my eye surgery... great watch.

Anyone else cringe though, when he broke into the gun store and poured out all that gun powder?

I was like "Noooooooooo! That's 2 year's inventory at Wholesale sports!"

When someone in Alberta says "in camp", they mean in a work camp. Basically prison. There is nothing to do but watch movies. He's not camping. That's different.

Some come with barbed wire fence around the perimeter too! You know, for your safety.

I only stayed in two camps and talking with people who were from a different lifestyle than mine took precedence over TV. Watch all you want but I prefer talking, reading and card playing.

First Blood is amazing... the second one is really good, the third one is meh, and the fourth... shouldn't have been made, and tarnishes the entire franchise.

Clearly you haven't been in a camp recently. Nobody plays cards anymore, reading is non existent and the topics of conversation are where you scored your drugs, the hookers you nailed on your days off and how drunk you were last weekend. Once in a blue moon the topic changes to trucks or quads but as soon as people realize they're starting to gain their senses they wake up and go back to the booze, drugs and hooker conversations.

I stopped going to camp because finding intelligent, stimulating conversation and people was becoming almost impossible. You really are better off watching movies in your room than "socializing", at least if you want to maintain your sanity.

If that is really the case then I'm glad I picked working for farmers as my career choice in the end. I've never found conversation boring but I have had friends invite me over for a visit and then shush me while talking because they were watching TV. They get a mite miffed when I get up and leave.:confused1:

Never been in camp, but I believe it.

The last place I worked at (small startup software development shop) they hired a guy who right out of university, to pay off his student loans, worked a year as a rig pig up north.

Really interesting guy, but even being ex-military, I've never met as profane and foul mouthed of a man as him, and I think I was about as much of a debaucherous, drunken, perverted gutter mouth as they come.

Oddly enough, he was hired as a junior sales and customer support rep - he didn't last long.

Man, you got the short end of the stick, I had good times at camp last year and previous years, no crackheads.

One of the greatest things about the entire franchise was that Rambo IV is actually rooted in fact.

Although a lot of the highbrow entertainment critics will pan it as 'another popcorn flick,' Rambo has succeeded in bringing a ton of international attention to the war crimes perpetrated by the Burmese military Junta in Myanmar; the use of child-soldiers, perpetration of genocide, state-sanctioned torture and rape, and forced labour, the systematic extermination and subversion of Karen, Karenni, and Shan minorities isn't something placed in there for shock factor, it's rooted in fact. Rambo said: "Live for nothing, or die for something" and that has actually become a motto for the Burmese freedom fighters. Largely, the genocide managed to fly beneath international radar because it's been much more comfortably isolated, much more subtle than what we usually assume genocide to be.

In short, the fourth movie has done quite a lot to publicize and make known the abuses of the military government in Burma.

First blood was decent gotta love the hip firing m60. 2 and 3 where more cheesy and comical like when he pulls the pin on the dude's grenade and round house kicks him down the hole with the rope around his neck.
