Arnold’s next best movie?

Post by CanNZ2000 »

Conan the Barbarian is a masterpiece.

Terminator and T2 are epic.

Predator is a study of perfection in filmmaking.

So what is his next best movie?

Total Recall.

Running Man is good and more quiptastic than Total Recall, but TR has a tighter plot and better action. Plus early Sharon Stone being hot as f*ck.

Good call with Total Recall, would probably be my choice. The Running Man has more humour though but Total Recall is a better made film.

The Last Action Hero.

In playing a parody of himself it turned out he’d jumped the shark and failed to deliver another good action film after ‘93.

Eraser was good, 6th Day was good but not at the level of Eraser or his earlier work.

Just realized that I left Commando off the list! Another top movie of his.

Slight aside but was very impressed with his speech after the Capitol riots.

I'd have Total Recall above Running Man, though both are great.

For #5 it would be between Running Man and Total Recall for me.

For #1, it would be between Conan and Predator.

I eagerly await all your wrath.

Without Commando there, I went for Total Recall as it probably has a bit of knowing satirical edge to it and three boobs.

The Running Man is a lot of fun too,.

I assume Commando is left off the list because it's up there with Predator so the poll would be a landslide?

It has to be Total Recall though, iconic

Running Man's half of an epic movie, very watchable and Killian is excellent. Dweezil! But a bit corny and hasn't aged well.

Total Recall still has you thinking what was real and what wasn't.

Close Call between Total Recall and True Lies but Jamie Lee Curtis is a huge factor in True Lies to make it what it is so Total Recall gets the nod in terms of Arnie impact

Hard to choose between True Lies, total Recall and Last Action Hero (loved the self depreciation and ironing in that one...), but went with True Lies.

Total recall had sharon stone tbf, although I think she was a bit of an irrelevance at that time.

True, and the scene when she ties her own wrists with her top still has a major schwing effect...

But True lies had a very well aged Jamie Lee Curtiss, and an extremely sexy Tia Carrere too.
