By Susan King, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer Dear Sylvester Stallone, Please stop with the sequels. Six "Rockys"? Four "Rambos"? What's next, "Rhinestone II"? "Son of Tango and Cash"? "Stop or My Grandmother Will Shoot?" It would be great to see you in something original. OK, we admit that the sixth installment of "Rocky" was a lot better than the two most recent sequels to the 1976 Oscar-winning best film. As far as "Rambo," you did give one of your best performances as the Vietnam vet killing machine in the 1982 original, "First Blood," and the 1985 blockbuster sequel "Rambo: First Blood Part II" was one of those it's-so-bad-it's-fun adventures. But 1988's "Rambo III"? It deserved to be tossed down a volcano. Now, you're back with the fourth installment, aptly titled "Rambo." But of course, Sly, you are not the only person responsible for making bad sequels. Here's a look at a few misguided follow-ups to hits and classics.
