You are a man of strange tastes….no love for Twins ?


Mako1103 Feb 2017 3:57 p.m. PST


True Lies as well, but a lot of that is due to his wife's little show, I suspect. Still, a fun and interesting movie.

Grignotage03 Feb 2017 4:15 p.m. PST

True Lies, Terminator 1 and 2, Predator, Kindergarten Cop, Conan.

Chris Wimbrow03 Feb 2017 4:16 p.m. PST

I've enjoyed many, but …

Conan the Barbarian

The books were written imagining him.

Buck21503 Feb 2017 4:18 p.m. PST

"The 6th Day". Completely underrated and ahead of its time…

T2: second best action movie made.

True lies: a movie that is so outrages it's almost an action parody. Had it been just slightly more silly. I'm sure Frank Drebin would have shown up to gather with the autopilot from airplane.

But it pulls it off.

Total recall: great violent sci fi from the good old days of action.

Last action hero: propper meta silliness.

The Hound03 Feb 2017 4:35 p.m. PST

Commando, Terminator,Conan the Barbarian, Predator

Texas Jack03 Feb 2017 4:52 p.m. PST

For me Running Man followed closely by Twins.

Gone Fishing03 Feb 2017 4:54 p.m. PST

Terminator 2 (the first was good, the second is better) and Conan the Barbarian!

Soft spot for The Last Stand, not his best by any means but much better than I expected and fun to watch occasionally.

I just copied Zhao, because he's right, though I don't think I ever saw The Last Stand.

14Bore04 Feb 2017 5:00 a.m. PST

First movie I remember seeing with the Arnold was Conan the Barbarian and thought he was good in that, but as the Terminator he was born to play that roll.

Conan the Barbarian. Not only is it the best Schwarzenegger movie, in my opinion it is also the best fantasy movie ever made.

Weasel05 Feb 2017 1:03 a.m. PST

A lot of good ones but let's go with
Terminator 2
True Lies

Lonkka1Actual05 Feb 2017 2:52 p.m. PST

Five just easily ables me to fit the clearly best ones to the same list.

In no order:

Conan the Barbarian
