re: "you would not have needed to ask the question."

Wouldn't "that" be nice? Fact is you wouldn't be the 1st chuckhead to cry racism when it doesn't apply. Nowadays the race card is used far too often, so it's always better to ask someone to clarify.

THE TERMINATOR

Arnie is perfection in this flick as the emotionless cyborg from the future. And it was NOT an easy role to play! I felt like the latter "bad" Terminators in 2 and 3 TRIED to look menacing, while Arnie in the original Terminator WAS menacing!

Granted in T2 & T3 he was a protector instead of assassin. I forget. Were each T-101 more advanced from the previous in each movie? I always wondered.

Hey, Guys, go check out his new movie, The Last Stand. It was really good, and I'm not just saying that because I'm an Arnie fan. The movie is definitely worth going to see.

Yeah, in T2, the "bad" Terminator was some liquid metal configuration that was harder to 'terminate' than Arnie's 'obsolete' model from T1. And in T3, the female "Terminatrix" was a more advanced model of the T2 one.

I was referring to Arnold's models. I know T-1000 and T-X were far more advanced. I was wondering if Arnold's model were supposed to be like slightly more advanced than the other. I know the T-101 models are like the footsoldiers in the machine war.

The main difference was the T-1000 and T-X didn't receive a paycheck for their roles and Arnie did. Apparently the unions were pissed, SAG was pissed and even Saul wouldn't take their case.

Arnie was originally offered the role of the hero, Reese, but chose the villainous cyborg instead. A very wise choice, if you ask me.

I heard somewhere that O.J. Simpson auditioned to be The Terminator. Like no joke. I'm not sure how true it is. I remember hearing it on VH1 some years back.

After reading through a lot of these posts I have come to the conclusion that Arnold was a GREAT movie star and a LOUSY governor. Those great one liners are just tremendous. They made me laugh all over again. My favorite Arnie movie has to be Predator. Wasnt it Jesse Ventura who says "I aint got time to bleed". Classic

Glad you made the distinction between a great "movie star" and a great "actor". Arnie has never been a great actor but he does make an interesting and popular movie "star" who can make bank. As far as being Governor of California; Californians didn't know he was a Republican (a race of people despised in CA), they thought they were voting for him to be the official Hollywood Greeter......kind of like Walmart.

I see that California politics is another subject about which you are ignorant. (Hint: what party did the two presidents from California belong to?)

My point of course was a combination of sarcasm and truth, I'm sorry that went over your head but I don't think a couple ex-presidents being from California lessens my point. By the way, if you count presidents by state of primary affiliation you would need to add Herbert Hoover. If you eliminate any who were not native Californians, subtract Reagan and Hoover.

It was about 98% sarcasm and 2% truth.

It didn't go over my head -- you were making a joke about the stereotypical Californian. I was just pointing out that it was a stereotype, as anyone who has actually lived in California could tell you.

> but I don't think a couple ex-presidents being from California lessens my point.

The fact that Nixon and Reagan were both Californians and had been elected to public office by Californians (Nixon to Congress as an anti-Communist and Reagan as governor on a "fire the commies and chop down the redwoods" platform) -- not to mention who was behind Prop. 13 -- indicates that there are far more Republicans in California, and they wield far more political power, than your stereotype would have it.

Says you.

re: "you were making a joke about the stereotypical Californian"

And as a one of the most liberal states in the union, there are far more stereotypical liberals than you would care to admit.

re: "as anyone who has actually lived in California could tell you."

Not caught up on all the post yet huh? I told someone here shortly afterward that I have lived in both southern and northern California in the past.

re: "The fact that Nixon and Reagan were both Californians"

Yes, about that, Reagan grew up in the mid-west and as we all know, those are the formative years.

"Born in Tampico (1911), ILLINOIS, and raised in Dixon, Reagan was educated at Eureka College, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in economics and sociology. After graduating, Reagan moved first to IOWA to work as a radio broadcaster and then, in 1937, to Los Angeles where he began a career as an actor." ~ Wiki

I suggest you stop whining and if you don't like my jab at Californian's radical Liberalism, then retire to your pout corner.

Predator has to be the top macho action flick. It was different to see the tables get turned on the macho guys for a change. Predator mauled everyone. Arnold just got lucky.

i think Predator is very underrated. When John McTiernan directed Die Hard in '88, its massive popularity overshadowed predator, a very impressive debut effort. ps...die hard is one of my fav movies ever.

Predator is easily one of his better films.

I've always been partial to Kindergarten Cop. There have been several movies made over the years putting action hero types in more domesticated surroundings because the juxtaposition is inherently funny(Suburban Commando, The Pacifier, etc), but Kindergarten Cop was first and is the only one that wasn't horrible. And in fact, it's very entertaining in large part thanks to the kindergartners themselves. The filmmakers were wise enough to just let Arnold be the straight man and freely allow the kids to steal every scene they wanted.

The nice balance of cuteness, humor, action and romance makes it a very rewatchable movie; there's something appealing in it no matter your mood. Any time I stumble across it on cable, I'm probably going to watch it until the end.
