that top 250 is a joke. Inception is ranked the 8th best movie of all times. Give me a break.

I watched Rambo 1 sometime ago and i dont know why its perceived as dumb action movie tbh.

Action was merely playing part in the movie.

I don't think First Blood was intentionally perceived as a dumb action movie. At least by people who watched it. Just Rambo 2 and 3 generated that perception and 1 got strung along with it I guess.

Yeah, rambo 1 was awesome; really great movie. Although... rambo 4... pretty decent :) Tossup between 1 and 4, really for me!

Rambo 4 for me, just because the end is like eating a big piece of chocolate cake. So if u dont like cake, u dont like rambo :P j/k but I really enjoyed 4.

Typical Clint Eastwood movie (and that's a good thing). Has a lot of soul in it.

It's a nice movie with a nice story but the Black Swan was a lot more fun imo. I don't understand why this movie won all the oscars this year.
