Rambo: First Blood Part 2 (1985) – Filmsack Show Notes

Rambo: First Blood Part II 1985


Oh hi,

This week on Filmsack we take a break from our Rock Quarry Prison Workout and have a shirtless flash back to 1985 thanks to our former boss; HBO Max, soon to be Col Max? I dunno. But he takes our hairless, smooth as butter and sweaty as …… butter? body … wait are we made of butter? He takes our butter body and drops it off in Vietnam to revisit the horrors of the war and to remind us our county hates us. Reciprocate my love DAMN YOU or I’ll shove this explosive tip arrow right up your coke stealing hole! That’s right those cokes ain’t free of charge! They are free as in freedom not free as in my love for my country. 

Anywho, I met a nice lady on my trip. She died. But not before asking me to remember her and I was like … ‘yeah I remember you’ and then she rolled her eyes and  went to sleep … so I took her lucky charm necklace… well not so lucky I suppose … but I took it just the same …and I cut off a part of her dress and used that for a bandana on the only part of my body that has hair … the mop on my top … and then I got to killing everything… oh yeah… and I buried her in the mud during monsoon season next to a creek …. soooo … I suspect the villagers will be getting a down stream surprise soon enough.

Randy, Do you hear that? I think it is a Motorbike from the local village. You know what that means! yep…our Vietnamese food is here! and for some reason I am horny. Oh no I got Pavlov’s Pants.


John Rambo (Sylvester Stallone) is doing hard time in jail when his former boss, Col. Troutman (Richard Crenna), offers him a deal. If Rambo travels to Vietnam to try to find the American prisoners of war, his criminal record will be expunged. Rambo takes the reconnaissance assignment and agrees not to get involved in any of the action. However, when his Vietnamese lover, Co Bao (Julia Nickson), is killed by American forces, Rambo forgets his promise and takes matters into his own hands.
