The Governator's Ten Best

Gun to my head, I would have to say that Arnold Schwarzenegger is my favorite actor of all-time. Now I don't consider him the BEST actor of all-time, just my personal favorite. I grew up watching Arnold action movies and enjoying the way he delivered many classic lines on screen. With recent news about the race to succeed the Governator in California, I though it would be a good opportunity to list my personal top 10 list of Arnold films. Some of these are absolute classics that I own on DVD and will delightfully screen for Josh and Alex when they get to be the right age. Included with each movie is the most memorable Arnoldism from the film.

#1 - Terminator 2: Judgment Day - "Hasta La Vista... Baby!"

#2 - Predator - "Get to tha CHOPPAH!"

#3 - Total Recall - "Get your ass to Mars"

#4 - The Running Man - "Killian, here's your Subzero, now plain zero"

#5 - Kindergarten Cop - "That's not a too-mah!"

#6 - True Lies - "You're Fired!"

#7 - The Terminator - "I'll be Back."

#8 - Commando - "Let off some steam, Bennett."

#9 - Terminator 3: The Rise of the Machines - "You are terminated."

#10 - Eraser - "You're luggage."

Once his term is done I hope Arnold returns to Hollywood and gives us a few more one-line zingers in film before he fully retires from acting.
