After watching yesterday's spotlighted video of "Rambo II: the Musical," I tried to think of who would star in such a film if it actually existed. Nobody in Hollywood quite has the physique of 1980s Sylvester Stallone anymore, and that's something the action star blames on one particular film that closed out the Reagan era: Tim Burton's Batman. Speaking to Hero Complex recently, he said as much about the 1989 blockbuster:

"It was that first Batman movie," he told the LA Times blog. "The action movies changed radically when it became possible to Velcro your muscles on. It was the beginning of a new era. The visual took over. The special effects became more important than the single person. That was the beginning of the end."
