First topic message reminder :

Ladies and Gents, the second round of the 2013 movie cup is up and could I ask you all to vote for your favourite two films from the list.

Even if you are not part of the nomination process, you can still take part in deciding which v2 member has the best film taste.

Round 2 covers the films of Sylvester Stallone and the following are nominations from the 11 entrants into this years competition. Take a read and choose your favourite two.

As soon as this competition closes in a 5 weeks time, we will be moving on to the 2013 Music Cup, so make sure to put your name forward if you want to compete in that one.

But without further ado, please find this weeks nominations - the poll will close on Monday where we will move on to Round 3 which feature animated movies.

The Nominations are:

Demolition Man - The quintessential 90s Hollywood blockbuster, featuring the good guy Stallone up against the bad guy Wesley Snipes. Some great action scenes, along with some classic lines - this film has everything an action film needs, plus a great performance by Sly. If you don't vote for Demolition Man, I must ask you - "What seems to be your boggle?"

Cobra - Another Action Thriller from Sly. A cop with no regard to rules helps a 'witness' and ends up taking down a new gang intent on murdering the weak. I really enjoyed this film, the look of SLy, dressed all in black, sunglasses and the gun with a lazer on top made him so cool and a mean looking b@stard! THis is what an action film is all about!

oscar - was surprisingly believable as a gangster boss, admittedly there aren't too many good films involving sly but this one was watchable

Nighthawks - Superb thriller. Great villain, believable characters, atmospheric and a real twist at the end..

Escape to Victory - It has Bobby Moore and Pele in it. What else is there when the cast has those two?

First Blood - people often remember this as an all out action picture that hsa Stallone as a one man war machine. However, it is far from that. The first half is a great game of cat and mouse with Dennehy chasin down Sly. The second half, although ridiculous at times, is a real tour de force by Stallone as an actor. Amazing acting from a man who seems genuinely broken. The sequels dont do this film justice.

Rocky III - One of Stallone's best films and delivers well, did I also mention Hulk Hogan and who could forget the amazing theme song?

Daylight - One of his best, a good old fashioned disaster film about a collapsed tunnel. Sly has to lead an array of people to safety.

Cop Land - (from nominee!)Erm not even seen it but it's meant to be very good according to reviews. Given a choice I'd have picked Demolition Man because Sandra Bullock was hot as but that was taken and I never liked Stallone. Courtesy of Rowley - Stallone plays a local town cop in a town where most of the local residents are New York police. He discovers corruption and foul play in the community amongst the police trying to cover up a killing by one of their own. One of Stallones more heavyweight acting roles, both literally and figuratively as he gained a lot of weight to play the role. Excellent cast including De Niro, Keitel, Liotta and the vastly under rated Michael Rappaport.

Oh come on, the Rambo's were pretty awesome as well, but at the tender age of 25 I do not think you could appreciate them as much as I do.

Hey Lord Dowlais, how are you? Cefn Coed girl here. Rambo doesn't do it for me at all and IMHO is not even a good film. Ah well, we'll always have Asda. Smile

First Blood was awesome but I'm not a big fan of the sequals, although the one made a few years ago wasn't bad.

I must be missing something, but I've not seen any mention of Round 3 bar the odd comment. Is there a brief for us somewhere? Smile

Cool beans Stallone Movies - The movie cup round 2 - Page 2 3559488474

Good to see Demolition Man scoring some votes, that film is destined for the US National Film Registry one day.

Cliffhanger is an almighty film, had we been nominating two films that would have been my second. That start is absolutely fantastic, and John Lithgow is just brilliant.

I actually enjoyed Cliffhanger too, the opening sequence was fantastic and was a proper jaw dropper.

No Over the Top?!

Best use of a cap in a film makes it worth voting for alone.

Impossible, Rocky always gets to the final round, unless he's got his hands tied behind his back there's no way Audley could last that long.

Yep, there's only so far you can take artistic licence with even the most gullible viewer.

Went for original Rocky due to Rocky IV not being an option and Demolition Man because I loved it as a kid.

Hindsight was pretty much the same as foresight with round 2, Oscar wasn't a very good choice.
