  1. No love for Running Man? I always felt it was Arnold’s top 3 best sci-fi films.

    • I freakin love Running Man. it has some of his best one liners,

      “I hope you leave enough room for my fist, because I’m going to ram it into your stomach and break your goddamn spiiine!!”

  2. Mine:
    1. Terminator 2
    2. Terminator 1
    3. Total Recall
    4. Commando
    5. Predator

  3. No love for Running Man or Last Action Hero?

    • He probably didn’t want to trigger The Nostalgia Critic by listing Last Action Hero (Doug still doesn’t seem to understand it was supposed to spoof action movie tropes) but he is genuinely good in that movie.

      He’s as stoic and arrogant as his poorly written action character persona would be.

  4. I totally agree with Walter on original Terminator being a better performance for Arnold, and probably in the minority for liking the original Terminator better than T2.

    There is just something so raw and menacing about the first Terminator, and the movie is paced so well. A testament to a great movie “monster” is whether you can feature the killer monster on screen for a large portion of the movie, and still have it be a huge terrifying threat by the end.
