The Best Worst Sylvester Stallone Movies Ever

Today is Sylvester Stallone's 65th birthday, with the veteran action star sharing his day of birth with former President of the United States, George W. Bush. Most people know Stallone best for playing iconic roles such as Rocky Balboa and the crazed Vietnam vet John. J. Rambo.

Younger folks will either know him as the guy that isn't Arnold Schwarzenegger or Antonio Banderas. Or they will know him as the kindly gentleman in Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over. My friend Ryan counts his 1986 film Cobra as a cinematic triumph, and I am inclined to agree. Plus, it has the best poster tagline ever: "Crime is a disease. Meet the cure."
