ADVENTURE * “One Man Against How Many? No one actually sat through Rambo with a pocket calculator and announced an official body count, but People magazine came close. Not counting the "anonymous hordes killed in the movie’s 70-plus explosions," here's the breakdown on the number of deaths caused by our hero's arsenal of weapons: knife — 5, strangulation — 2 (plus a snake), bow and arrow — 1-4. firearms — 15, explosion — 3. burning — 3, helicopter — 2. That totals out at 44, or an average of 1 kill every 2.1 minutes in the 93-minute film. Rambo: First Blood Part 11 Picking up right where First Blood left off, John Rambo (Sylvester Stallone) is in jail for having wiped out half the police force of a small Oregon town. But his buddy Col. Troutman (Richard Crenna) is promising a presidential pardon if the ex-Green Beret will travel back to Vietnam to prove there are no more POWs left there. Upon arrival, however, Rambo finds a slew of prisoners and tries to singlehandedly bring them back. And when the U.S. government refuses support, the fuse is lit for explosive action — Rambo style.

DRAMA Stranger Than Paradise Stick with this film, it's a rare gem. Shot entirely in black and white on a shoestring budget, its documentary style makes the audience feel like it’s peering into someone’s private life: namely, the shiftless existence of an insecure yet arrogant con man named Willie, whose lackluster lifestyle is soon altered when his spunky cousin Eva arrives fresh off the boat from Hungary to pay him a visit. Eva's no-nonsense perspective provides a sharp contrast to Willie’s irresponsible ways, and it isn't long before even he realizes there’s more to life than horseraces and TV dinners. Profanity, some mature themes. 1984, B&W, R, 1:29. Director. Jim Jarmusch. Starring: John Lurie, Eszter Balint, Richard Edson.
