To be fair,

Arnie never really left the silver screen. Probably about time he did, though. "Triplets"? Who's the third - Adam Sandler?

Re: To be fair,

As far as I know, during his stint as the Governator, he only appeared in two films: Round the World in Eighty Days (with Steve Coogan and Jackie Chan) and the Expendables.

Your point stands, though- since leaving office, he's been in Expendables 2, The Last Stand, and an upcoming Stallone movie, in which Sly and Arnie must team up to escape from a futuristic prison.

2003: The Rundown as Cameo

2004: Around the World in 80 Days as Prince Hapi

2010: The Expendables as Trench

As long as it's better than Terminator: Salvation. I switched that film off after 15 minutes, what absolute dross.

Hollywood producers clearly have way, way too much money.

Only one of those three movies sounds like it should have made it past reading of the title and that's the King Conan movie.

Which reminds me: Terminator may have be his best role, but Conan the Barbarian clearly launched his career.

I thought his first film was "Hercules in New York", although I believe his voice was dubbed out.

Re: I thought his first film was "Hercules in New York"

That was the first film I ever fell asleep during - and I was about 12 years old at the time. I think it had been voted to be broadcast by a phone-in, on some Friday night television fund raising effort in the UK.

Yes, Hercules in New York was his first movie, but with that turd on his resume it's surprising he got to make a second.

"Conan the Barbarian clearly launched his career."

Arnie's movie career was launched by Stay Hungry. His presence and attitude in that movie was what attracted people towards him as a screen actor.

Maybe they can also bring back Robert Patrick ...

Re: Get your ass to Mars, Get your ass to Mars, Get your ass to Mars, Get your ass to Mars

Schwarznegger has so many brilliantly cheesy quotes it defies belief:

'Stick Around' (after he's just impaled a guy against a wall)

'You know when I said I'd kill you last Sully? I lied'

'Let off some steam, Bennett'

'Sub zero...now just...plain zero'

'See you at the party Richer!' (He decidedly will NOT be seeing Richter at the party as Richer has just had his arms torn off and been dropped a few hundred metres)

Got to give the bloke some credit, he's had a laugh with his career.

Not to forget::

(after Arnie has dropped David Patrick Kelly off a cliff)

Rae Dawn Chong: What happened to Sully?

Arnie: I let him go.

Well..

.. I have to hand it to him, he's not one for sitting still. I hope I'll still be that active at that age. Having said that, I lived next door to someone who'd done national level fencing, and that guy was not exactly slowing down either - aged 75.

I once visited the shrine to the Blessed Schwartz

In Thal, Austria, a village in the Styrian countryside (no relation to the similarly named Syrian countryside) spread out over hills and valleys. On one hill, there is a school with a massive mural of Schwartz facing the street. Down by the lake, there's an upturned boat, sawn in half, the inside of which is covered by a huge photograph of Schwartz and "Our Maria". I think that was his wife but they're divorced now. I didn't see any mention of his greatest contributions to Western Culture: "Al-bi-bac" and "fac you assol".

This is a joke, right? Have the studios not seen a picture of Arnold in a bathing suit lately? He's not exactly ripped enough to pull off Conan anymore.

Depends on the context....

...an aged, weary King Conan could be the best (or at least most plausible) role mentioned.

The Good and The Bad....

Sceptical if they can resuscitate this franchise after two turkeys. T3 was a Telenovella and T4 a Transformers clone. Still, nice to see Arnie back as the mean terminator. T1 was the best. T2 was too much CGI showboating and that petulant kid?! Hollywood has been killing cinema of late, so what's the odds this won't be another Die Hard sequel? They could give it to Chris Nolan (Inception)? I'd like to see a TV series instead... TV has been decimating cinema in quality for well over a decade IMHO....

"Like the Sarah Connor Chronicles? "

Tried watching it when I lived in the US but couldn't get into it. Did I gave up too quick- Your thoughts? Regarding T5 I was thinking of a full-on futuristic Sci-Fi TV series i.e. machines vs. humans plot but hoping for something better than the Matrix sequels .... Something edgy with a survival theme like 'The Walking Dead'...

Re: The Good and The Bad....

There is probably about a total of 12 worthwhile episodes of that. (But the second season is 20 odd).

They should have done it in smaller chunks. (Using the profits of the DVD / Bluray to pay for the next).

This has got to be a LOT better than Salvation, even with his old ass lumbering around. I'm smelling prequel.

Raw Deal & Kindergarten Cop were arguably his best work.

Killing people to the Rolling stones is a bit of a Signature move.

Maybe he can make sequels?

Sore Deal - as an undercover bitter ex government agent he smashes a Sanotogen counterfeit ring in a quarry and an old peoples home with enough armour to start world war 3 in a corduroy jacket.
