  1. I know you’re not into movies, but Commando is a masterpiece. It somehow manages to be both a great action movie and to be fully aware of the ludicrous nature of action movies.

  2. My favorite Beardymohamedov film is the car racing – pedestrian saloons circling the track ….. and the dear leader emerges from the pit lane on the last lap and takes the chequered flag in his Bugatti Veyron.

    Laurel wreath and champers …. what a guy

  3. Bloke in Swindon:

    My favourite scene is on the plane where Arnold breaks the neck of the thug assigned to guard him, puts a blanket over the bloke and says to the stewardess “Pleas don’ tisturb my frient. Hiss ded tired”–and then jumps of the plane as it takes off.

    Second favourite: Arnold is holding some nasty little crim runt by his ankle over a very high cliff. “Remember Solly ” he says ” how I sed I’d keel yuu last? I lied” and drops the bloke.

    The love interest asks him what happened to Solly . “I led him go” Arnold tells her.

    They don’t make movies like that any more.

  4. I looked at the Guardian article. The president has a gun and can shoot. The Guardian never says what their point is. Are we supposed to nod yes – or no – when we read ‘gun?’

    Commando is the Platonic ideal of Schwarzenegger movies. They should put it in the National Film Registry in the Library of Congress as an example of a film that is “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”.

    I can hear the James Horner steel drum soundtrack in my head.

    You could say Breathless is the Platonic ideal of a Goddard film. That doesn’t change the fact that it sucks.

    With regards to Arnold films, watch the original Terminator and burn the rest.

    Dennis, if I want to watch a movie by some French poofter I will. But I don’t. Commando is ace, with only Predator approaching it in its concentrated essence of Arnie-ness.
