The original Terminator was THE BEST Arnie film without a doubt.

As much as I like Terminator 2, I prefer the original .... it's more sinister and dark. I like that in a film :twisted:
Although saying that, it looks a tad dated nowadays, but it's still bloody brilliant .... oh, and it's my all time favourite film!

I voted for Commando i the end. Why? its just all out no-nonsense fun. One liners, mindless action, what action movies of today should be.

You know I said I'd kill you last?
Yeah?
....I lied.

I like the back of the box blurb on Commando... "One thing they didn't think about.. Matrix is angry.... very, very angry"!!!

Love it!

Especially the bit when he slices off the top of the guys head with the circular saw blade from the shed...

I do love Total Recall aswell.. but Commando get's my vote..

Yay, more Commando love...............erm......that didn't come out right!!!!

Shame we got the German censored version, instead of the uncut version, like our yankee friends.

Has to be Conan the Barbarian. Only the first one, the second was too child friendly (apart from sexy D'abo :D ).
Nothing like the R. E. Howard character though which was a shame

Argh! This is too hard! They're all kickass.

Terminator, Total Recall, Conan and Predator are all 5 star flicks. But if someone had a gun against my SEGA Saturn and forced me to pick....well i guess i'd go with Predator. But f*ck, i'd feel dirty after.

I would have to go with Twins. Brilliant movie with a brilliant tagline:

"Arnold Schwarzenegger. Danny DeVito. Only their mother could tell them apart."

Funny. Funny. Funny :-)

Commando all the way (with Running Man & Terminator a very close 2nd and 3rd). Its just a brilliant 'switch off and have a blast' movie 8)
