RAMBO: First Blood – What’s the Difference?
First Blood is best known as the first Rambo movie. As a major launching point in Sylvester Stallone’s career. But before all that, First Blood was a novel by David Morrell. We look at both side-by-side, and tell you: “What’s the Difference?”

Kenan Thompson, Kevin Hart, and Jay Pharaoh are living in Bushwick, Brooklyn, hanging out on the corner and discussing what they’ve been up to. Hint: it involves mayonnaise, gelato, and hanging out with the bitches (they’re dogs).
