The Machinist is one I was VERY close to putting on my list, and probably should have. Great movie with a pretty good twist. Bale does and excellent job, Micheal Ironside plays an exceptionally convincing role as usual (albiet a bit short), and Jennifer Jason Leigh lets the twins out. Who could ask for more?

Total Recall is a totally rewatchable film.  C'mon now.  "2 Weeks.  2 Weeks."

Great movie.

Yup, I can watch that movie over and over again. Paul Verhoeven really pulled out all the stops with this one. The over the top action , some of Arnie's most memorable one liner's, and ambiguous plot and ending(The movie pretty much leaves it up to you as to whether Quad really was dreaming or not) all combine to make this my favorite (yup, favorite) Arnold film.

Man I get a lot of heat for my incredulity over this movie.  Well... maybe it's my favorite ARNOLD film... maybe not... do I have one?  Who doesn't like "I'll be back"?  Or, "Get ready for a surprise!!"  I'm sorry, I think it's dumb.  But I like some dumb movies.   Smile

It's definitely in that category.  Along with Kindergarten Cop.  A lot of Arnold's movies might be cheesy, but they're all definitely "endlessly watchable" in my opinion.  Except for Last Action Hero or Junior. 

They were god-awful.

Agreed. I can watch any Arnold movie over and over. It's very hard to pick a favourite, but my top three would have to be the Terminator, The Running Man and Predator. I like all of them, with the exception of Junior and Batman and Robin, although the latter wasn't technically an Arnold Pic. Total Recall is great fun, and I even like The Last Action Hero. Hey, it's a spot-on spoof most of the time. Unfortunately, it gets really maudlin in places, and turns almost dead serious at the climax. I appreciate what they were trying to do, but the serious/sentimental bits missed the mark. The sentimentality needed to be more smoothly integrated with the comedy, and the whole last third of the script especially needed to be reworked. But I still like it.

Well, Batman and Robin takes the case as far as it being Arnold's worst movie, but seeing as he wasn't really the 'star' and more of a co-star, I let him slide with that.

Last Action Hero, I remember being really disappointed with, but it's been maybe 7 or so years since I've seen it to honestly evaluate it again.
