My 5 favorite Arnie movies

  • Oct 12, 2010
The Terminator
I went to this movie thinking it would be a turkey after having seen Arnie as Conan. Boy was I wrong! This movie was thrilling from beginning to end and made Arnold and "i'll be back!" household lore. One of the best action films ever and surely the best of the Terminator movies (the story in the second film was kind of lame and that is why I never put it above this film).
See the full review, "Possibly the Best Action/SciFi Film Ever!".
Poster for the movie
Probably the most fun Arnold ever. Tom Arnold actually stole the movie and made it so enjoyable. When Arnold is drugged with truth serum, he spews some of the funniest lines of the film. One of the best demises of the bad guy happens in this film.
See the full review, "Arnold, Tom & Jaime Get it Right!".
Kindergarten Cop
Arnold as a "likable" teacher. Long before School of Rock, there was this film. And Arnold as Richard Kimble (no relation to the Fugitive character) is a lot of fun.
Total Recall
As Bohemian Rhapsody asks, "Is this the real life or is this just fantasy?" By the end of the movie we are not sure. The movie launched Sharon Stone's career as a butt kicking baddie. Met her demise by Arnold telling her "Honey, here is the divorce!"
Movie cover
Can Arnold and Danny DeVito share top billing and succeed? The answer is yes. Arnold as the straightman is actually funny himself.

What did you think of this list?

Fun to Read

Nice list. I still haven't seen all of Kindergarten Cop outside of knowing the jokes about what boys and girls have and what isn't ailing Arnold.

LOL! Seems like there is a Governator theme going on in the site and I enjoyed the list, Michael! It is nice to have an Arnie list with Kindergarten Cop in there :)

Thanks woopak, it was actually a pretty good movie. Some of the action movies (Commando) were ridiculous. I would give honorable mention to Predator but the whole story as to what the commandos were doing in the jungle was flawed.
