When I was growing up, I had the survival knife, the head band, the camouflage pants and the dogtags.
I also had the semi-automatic BB-gun that could shoot a shitload of BB's in under a minute. And let's not forget the bottle rockets and smoke bombs. I had them too.
Yep. I'm not afraid to admit it. In the 80's, I was a Rambo wannabe.
To some extent, I guess you could say that I still am.
If you've read this blog before, then you can understand my love for the first installment of the Rambo series. In all honestly, it's definitely one of my top 20 favorite movies of all time. If not a top 10 choice.
I kid you not.
That said, check out this trailer for Son of Rambow. It's a film about two English kids growing up in the 80's who set out to make a sequel to First Blood during their summer break.
Looks interesting and fun. However, I'm wondering if they didn't give too much away in the trailer.
Who cares though. I'm still looking forward to seeing it.
And no, I haven't seen the new Rambo movie yet. Check out this entry to find out why.
What about you guys? Have any Rambo childhood stories that you'd like share?
