Ahnuld's comeback flick, The Last Stand
The first trailer was pretty okay but "meh", but these two more recent ones are lookin' gnarly. You heard me, gnarly. Sure looks to kick the everloving shit out of Die Hard "I call bullshit!" 5.
Looks straight-up cheesy, over-the-top, one-liner spewing, hard-R violence, classic unapologetic Ahnuld being awesome. We'll try to forget The Expendables sequel, dude. Just stay on this track. The prison heist movie with Stallone looks rad too.

Stoked. Looking forward to watching that in the theaters. Just 'cause of Johnny Knoxville is one awesome mothafucka!
I refuse to believe anyone has ever enjoyed a Schwarzenegger film in a non-ironic, hipster way :P He's always been an awful actor, and every single movie he's been in is so stupid. Terminator was the most tolerable one, though no thanks to Arnold himself. Especially now, since he proved himself to be a shitty politician and everyone hates him, it seems especially strange that he has ANY fans!

The rest, well, they can't all be wins.
Some of us don't feel compelled to view all forms of media as a means of feeling smug and self-satisfied. Some of us are actually capable of switching our brains off and watching some good cheesy stupid fun.
And Ahnold never "proved" himself to be a shitty politician, and if anybody hates him they're in the vast, vast minority. He was a capable and respected Governator and he is and forever will be a beloved and admired icon of a simpler, less self-absorbed age than we live in today.
I still can't believe he was the Governor of California
Maybe get over yourself a little? If a giant chunk of the population of both the US and other western countries didn't love both the dude's personality and his fun-as-fuck screen presence, his career would have been over long before the Maria scandal. You know, with all his other scandals and shit?

The governor thing's debatable. He'll never be remembered as a guy who got things done, sure, but California was going down the shitter by '03 anyway, and it's a bit more complicated than "dude doesn't speak English and is screwing over public school teachers". Lots of crazy shit going on.
The movie industry needs Ahnuld right about now, kick aside all of the douchey smug prettyboy leading-actors in action flicks, bring back some of the dorky, lowbrow, violent but fun 80s vibe, and in a way that doesn't seem cheap and direct-to-video like the Expendables unfortunately were.
Not to mention it's directed by the dude who did The Good, the Bad, and the Weird. Crazy awesome.

I'm actually starting to look forward to this new movie, largely because I really enjoyed Johnny knoxville in that movie with The Rock.
I'm a big fan of classic Arnold movies, in general. Some are better than others, obviously, but that doesn't make them any less fun.

But it definitely was a serious movie. I mean come on how can you not think Arnold shooting a dude in the head while falling from a building then using said man to break your fall is fucking great. Yea the director of "I Saw The Devil" did a good job with this one.
fuck fuck shit fuck
I agree I really liked it
