    Any movie where Arnold punches out a Reindeer and then has a drink with it is okay by me.

    Don't forget that he was high on Post-Atlantean peyote and knocked out a camel in Conan the Barbarian.

    Punching out animals is one of Arnold's things, I'm pretty sure

    He punches another camel in Destroyer I believe

    And then those dogs in True Lies

    Mungo punching the horse in Blazing Saddles is one of Mrs. Rhesus' all time favourite movie moments. She also very much enjoyed Conan's camel punch.

    He slams the dogs heads together. No punching involved.

    I was only half-looking at the preview image for that clip, and I thought, "Wow, that haircut makes Arnold look way different."

    I love the fact that they considered O.J. Simpson at one point for the Terminator.

    Of course, they decided against that, since who could possibly see that goofy guy as a killer?

    Lance Hendriksen went to audition for the part of the Terminator as well.

    He had on really dark sunglasses and had put tinfoil over his teeth and kept looking around the room in a very robotic manner. He was so unnerving that the receptionist came in and told Cameron about him because everybody else was getting weirded out.

    Terminator 2 is a genuine blockbuster action movie that is incredibly solid.

    The original still has more flaws, but I like it more as it is written more as a action horror movie.
    T1 is pretty amazing when you consider the fact that it only had a budget of $6 million.

    Also, as great as T2 was, it was dumbed down a bit compared to T1.

    I will defend Terminator as being the superior film every single time I get the chance. I've been banging that drum for years, and some of my friends who insisted that T2 was better have finally started coming around. T2 is basically Terminator where Ahnuld got to play the good guy.

    That said, Terminator being a direct ripoff of a bunch of Harlan Ellison stories gave it a major head-start on being amazing. Cameron being such a talented director sealed the deal.

    That Harlan Ellison thing is kind of BS.

    The opening sequence of Terminator was very similar to the Twilight Zone episode "Soldier," and they shared the basic concept of two time traveling soldiers. However, the characters, plot, and setting are all different.

    Harlan Ellison once sued the makers of In Time for plagiarism and asked to have his name put in the credits. After he saw the film on release, he sued to have them take his name back out.

    Used to be? Avatar may not have been his best movie (and I'd hesitate to call it his worst; I mean, he did make Piranha 2), but it's not like his career hit freefall or anything. I'd argue his world building for Avatar is as great an achievement as his technicality on anything else he's done.

    I don't really like Titanic or Avatar, and besides the underwater exploration docs those are the only films he's made since True Lies in 1994.

    God damn, do I love Conan the Barbarian. As much as I love the LOTR films, CtB might just be my favorite fantasy film ever. I am a huge mark for high fantasy, but the minimalist fantasy of Conan is just perfect. Nothing is really awe-inspiring for these characters; magic and such just are. Stygian Black Lotus should be a band name if it isn't already.

    There are so many great character moments, too. Like in that clip above, where Thorgrim (what a fucking metal name) knocks the pillar over, looks at his hammer, then looks at the pillar like "...what." Or Conan's mother standing defiant against the entirety of Thulsa Doom's army when Rexor salutes her with the Father's Sword. Thulsa Doom's ever-so-slight change of expression to make Conan's mother lower her sword, too. Just a fantastic film, and probably my favorite Arnold flick as well.

    There's at least a few more movies coming out over the next couple months with potential to be huge.

    Ant man, minions, and pixels (unfortunately) should all be successful. Terminator is tracking soft but still screams summer movie. Fantastic 4 might do ok? Probably not.

    Then there's movies that look cool like the man from uncle but who knows how that'll do

    And they have been pushing it REALLY hard.

    They had a whole THING, like 5minutes+ long in front of Jurassic World.

    Combined with the recent fairly agressive ad campaign, yeah, it's pretty clear Marvel senses that this might not go great unless they REALLY get behind it.

    Antman sounds like the title of a low budget 50s Sci fi movie.

    A quick search showed it tracking at about 60 mil opening weekend, which is below cap 1 and thor 1 but still gives it a shot at a couple hundred million domestic on a 130 mil budget. Not great but will certainly be bailed out by the international BO.

    I'd agree with this in hindsight but
    when I saw it at the time it actually felt less like the usual "haha fuck you" horror movie ending, and more a really macabre way of saying "never, ever, give up hope, ever." Which I took to be really ultimately kind of positive despite how horrendous and depressing it was. It was very twilight zoney and so I enjoyed it, it didnt feel cruel or needless or like some sort of dumb final jump scare. It felt like something that could happen based on the logic of the world the movie depicted.

    Also the ending of Shaun of The Dead has a similar beat which I thought was kind of funny to notice

    I think the ending is probably the logical ending. I don't know if I like it or dislike it, but I can certainly marvel at it's existence.
