Spot on M_S, Kaushik. Theme, E_L?
Interestingly, although this movie was the fourth Rambo movie, none of the previous movies were called just "Rambo". The first one was "First Blood". So, they decided to name the 4th sequel as only "Rambo".

Ok this one is from a really old movie:
Joe: You're Norma Desmond. You used to be in the silent movies. You used to be big.
Norma Desmond: I AM big. Its the PICTURES that have gotten smaller.

Yup. One of the very initial movies to take an inward look at the wrong side of stardom.

By the way, nice reflexes regarding Aersomith

Correct, though:

a) I never knew it by Keating
b) I didn't know it was OST in Notting Hill (and I loved the movie)

The version I know is by Alison Krauss- a brilliant bluegrass singer (OST Oh Bro Where art Thou). Simply fascinating mellifluous voice full of stars and strawberries.

I did feel that a song like that cant come from a former Boyzone member

Here's a few lines from a very famous scene from a seventies movie:

- Is it safe?... Is it safe?
- You're talking to me?
- Is it safe?
- Is what safe?
- Is it safe?

I know that movie!! This scene directly precedes a dentist torture scene! And "it" refers to some diamonds or something! God, why can't I remember the name??

EDIT: Marathon Man!!!!!
