My Favorite Arnold Schwarzenegger Movies

  • Aug 11, 2009

Predator (Widescreen Collector's Edition) (1987)
Dutch(Arnold) is sent on a mission to rescue some hostages from a bunch of guerillas in some remote jungle.  But little does he know, there's an alien predator who hunts humans as a sport waiting for him and his team.  Will Dutch find a way to defeat this predator?!?!

Total Recall
This was a great scifi flick.  Arnold running around not knowing what the hell is going on while people are trying to kill him.  He somehow ends up in Mars and SAVES THE PLANET!!!...... well sort of.

Sub Zero, Buzzsaw, Dynamo, Fireball, and Captain Freedom.  Those are 5 reasons to watch this bad boy as Arnold, the running man, must defeat these gladiators on live television.  My favorite was Dynamo of course.  How could you not like an opera singing christmas tree?  And one part that will always make me laugh was when they asked the nice old lady in the audience who will make the next kill and she says "Ben Richards".  When asked why, she said "THAT BOY'S ONE MEAN MOTHER FUCKER!!!".

Terminator 2: Judgment Day
I always felt this was the best terminator movie of all.  Something about that liquid metal terminator that made the movie so cool.
The final scene was the best part of this movie where he fights his nemesis who wears that mail chain vest.
Conan the Barbarian
This was the movie that made Arnold.  To be honest with you, I don't remember what it was about.  I just know I liked it.

The Terminator
My 2nd favorite Terminator movie.  Still was cool to see Arnold playing a villain for the first time... I think.

Arnold plays a Russian going after some Jordanian criminals.  He's teamed up with Jim Belushi and the 2 make an interesting combo.
Poster for the movie
This was probably the only movie where Arnold has a family that I liked.  Seems like every freaking movie he's in with a family sucked.

Movie cover
I just love how Danny Devito plays Arnold's twin in this movie.  Just ridiculous and funny.
In my opinion, his last decent movie.  Wasn't that great but at least he played the role that fits him.

What did you think of this list?

Fun to Read

I preferred CONAN THE DESTROYER to C THE BARBARIAN and I also liked him as a supporting actor in RED SONJA. KINDERGARTEN COP was pretty good too. TWINS is probably my favorite. I like him doing comedy.

I'm the total opposite. I don't really enjoy his comedies as much especially when he's a family man. I love it when he plays a guy with no family and just goes on a killing rampage. I think when he has a family to worry about in the movie, it seems to hold him back from being the bad ass action star I grew to love in the 80s.

wow! I would put T2 at the top and then Predator...but hey, it's your list, buddy! How have you been? Where is "Junior" and "Last Action Hero"? he-heh.

I've been good. I've been catching up with 24 and been playing WoW. I haven't got time to do much but make lists on the site lately. For some reason, Predator just has that great rewatchability that the others don't have as much. I mean don't get me wrong, I can rewatch total recall and running man over and over again but predator seems to be the one that will always give me the most joy. As for Junior and Last Action Hero...... It'll be on my list soon... my worst arnold movies list =)
