Classic Stallone: "Cobra" revisted

On the occasion of "Rocky Balboa" opening.

With "Rocky 15" opening today and another "Rambo" in the works, we'd like to take this opportunity to bemoan one Stallone vehicle that has not received a much deserved sequel -- "Cobra" (1986). Lieutenant Marion Cobretti has terrific negotiating skills and perpetually dangles a match from his mouth, toothpick-style. He also wears huge sunglasses inside, without a trace of irony, which would be very welcome in today's ironic sunglasses film landscape. Here's Mr. Cobra, in all his glory -- a gift, from Stallone to YouTube to us to you. [The true magic begins at about 02:50.]
