    In celebration of NC's Schwarzenegger Month, let's list our five favorite films with the Governator and expalin why you like them.

    I'll start out.

    1. Terminator 2: Judgement Day- This movie is one of the best sequals around. Everything is just amazing (story,characters especially Lind hamilton's Sarah Conner,acting,and special effects) A person called this movie James Cameron's magnum opus and I couldn't agree more. Plus, the Governator really shines as the stoic robot bodyguard.

    2. The Terminator- The one that started it all and made Schwarzenegger the star that we all love.

    3. Total Recall- This is to Schwarzenegger what "Blade Runner" was to Harrison Ford.

    4. The 6th Day- Many label this movie as Schwarzenegger's comeback to good movies after the mess that was Batman and Robin. Plus, the film has some great literal themes to it which is rare for films that stars the Governator

    5. True Lies- What happens when Mr. Schwarzenegger tries to do a James Bond film? You get "True Lies". A fun film that is full of action and comedy.

    1) Commando. I'm not convinced this was actually a movie. They may well have just let Arnie get to know Alyssa Milano, kidnapped her, and recorded ensuing carnage. Arnie eats Green Berets for breakfast, and he's very hungry.

    2) True Lies. Last truly great film Arnie made. A superb take on the super spy film, with one of Arnie's better performances.

    3) T2. 'Nuff said.

    4) Predator. Yes, to have a chance of beating Arnie, you need to bring in a seven foot alien with laser guns. And it still doesn't have a chance.

    5) Total Recall. Was it all a dream? Who cares? Arnie slaughters another small army whilst getting his ass to Mars.

    1/2: Terminator 1 & 2 - I really couldn't pick a favourite, as I love both films for different reasons.

    3. Commando - the epitomy of action movies. :D 

    4. Predator

    5. Total Recall

    Sad fact is, thinking of my 5 least favourite Schwarznegger flicks would take less time, as much as I'm a fan of his work. :(

    1.Terminator 2:Judgment Day-obvious really
    2.Terminator-Same as T2, I just enjoyed the sequel much more
    3.Totall Recall-Saw this movie for the first time yesterday & loved it. It's got some corny moments and the cab driver is the steretypical trying to be funny but annoying dude but it's a solid Sci-Fi movie IMO.
    4.Predator-Good action film, I need to rewatch it again soon as I haven't seen it in a while and don't remember much.
    5.Jingle All The Way-A guilty pleasure this one, I find it quite funny(even before the Critic got to it). PUT DAT COOKIE DOWN!

    Predator
    Terminator 2
    Terminator
    True Lies
    Conan the Barbarian

    Next 5 -

    Total Recall
    The Running Man
    Commando
    Eraser
    Raw Deal

    I don't think any reasons are needed where good Arnold movies are concerned. If you don't know why they are awesome, you have no right to live on this planet.

    I should add the End of Days is the most disapointing Arnold film ever. I shit bricks when I heard that he was making a movie where he fights Satan, but was gutted when I actually saw it.

    I haven't even seen The Expendibles yet, but I know its going to be good.

    As for my short list, I really like the more cheesy Ah-nuld films. In no particular order...

    1)The Running Man
    2)Commando
    3)The Terminator
    4)Terminator 2
    5)Conan the Barbarian

    Actually, yeah, I'm pretty happy with that order.

    I still think my favorite Arnold story is from his gubernatorial campaign, where someone egged him during a speech and he calmly removed his jacket, pointed towards the man running away and said "Hey! That guy owes me bacon!"

    These are all I've seen of his films:

    1. T1/T2/T3
    2. Last Action Hero
    3. Kindergarten Cop
    4. Jingle All the Way

    I enjoyed them all, even the sub-par comedies! Still need to see Predator, dammit.
