Conan. The role he was born to play. The first Terminator was the best overall movie.

The lines are even funnier now thanks to those soundboard prank calls.


I voted for The Terminator. Truly one of the scariest cinematic villains of all-time.

I voted for Total Recall because it's my favorite Schwartzenegger movie.

However, I'd say that Terminator 2 and Predator are the best movies he made.

Predator.

Awesome on so many different levels. It's a travesty what Fox has done to this Franchise.

Yep, this is one of Arnold's best acting jobs - although Terminator 2 is probably my favorite movie with him in it.
