Der Meister, Mhatter99, Ann1Az2, thank you for commenting on my Ahnuldt Schwarzenegger hub, it is appreciated.

My favourite Arnie films are the first Conan, Terminator 1 & 2, Predator, Total Recall and True Lies.

Favourite posters - that first Terminator poster and the classic Conan the Barbarian poster by Renato Casaro.

Thanks for posting.

Just in time for his return to the movies with The Expendables 2 opening tomorrow. I have seen every single one of these movies....and most more than once. The Terminator, Total Recall, Predator, T2 and The Last Action Hero are my favorites...speaking of The Last Action Hero...I love that movie I love the script and I love all the movie knowledge...never understood why it was hated so much.

Love the posters....the first one...makes it look like Arnold was making movies in the 1940s.

I do not think Arnold will be able to return to the success he had in his glory years....but it is good to see back on the screen. Voted up and awesome...and I will be sure to include this on my soon to be remodeled Arnold hub.

Thanks Bruce, your comment appreciated as always. Arnold is getting on a bit, he'll be 70 in a few years time and I think Stallone is older?

Last Action Hero tried something different in the action genre and did get ragged on, it was a fantasy and quite funny too.

Eraser was badly cut here in the UK, more than any of his films just to give it a more teen-friendly certificate. I finally saw it uncut when I imported the DVD from America in the early 2000s.
