I have to admit I’m looking forward to how they’re gonna pull it off. Good ol’ Arnie is gonna have to hit the gym very hard for this one!


#4

All I know is the Conan reboot did not kick ass. No one will be quoting that one 20 years from now.


#5

Haha! Good gif positioning there, Nards!

I’d love to see him in the final Conan role. Nothing beat the first one (remakes and sequels were weak), so I hope this will finalize it.

Should be a terrible, awful, nearly unwatchable movie. Like every other movie Arnold has starred in since True Lies, which was 18 years ago.

Who goes to Arnold flicks for “great cinema”?

I go to see explosions and to watch people go “holy shit…biceps kick ass”.

Besides, Arnold has been taking Elocution classes for 40 years. They are bound to pay off any day now.

LOL!

I recall him in his first book stating, “I’m as confident in eliminating my accent, as I am in making millions of dollars”.

That’s where I draw the lone too, though I cut Eraser a bit of slack but that’s because it felt like a movie he should have made in the 80s.

Jingle All the Way came out after True Lies.

Don’t make me use that gif again.

I heard it was just going to be a voiceover and not him actually acting. But that could be wrong.

#13

Running man and that movie with The Devil in it are the only movies ive ever seen arnold in

Never seen terminator or conan


#14

It’s going to be good, as long as they stick to the mood of the first movie and not the shitty second one. I’m thinking he’ll be King Conan oin this one and won’t have to undress at all. I’m predicting his death too. But in the end, good or bad, I will be seeing it at the movies. If, for nothing else, like Prfessor X said, " biceps kick ass"

PS - It will be his voice, why wouldn’t it be? They haven’t dubbed him since Hercules in New York

That’s the problem. You go to an Arnold movie to see an Arnold movie, and he’s not capable of making Arnold movies anymore.

Nards, yeah Eraser didn’t suck, but it wasn’t that good either.

That’s a good way of putting it.

His movies are about a huge Germanic guy (sometimes Russian or Cimmerian…or cyborg) and when he’s just a normal guy then it feels odd. Like in The 6th Day where he’s some helicopter pilot shopping for his daughter, or Jingle All the Way which was so bad I won’t even italicize it.
