#20 - Eraser (1996)


Patch up your aquariums and wrestle some crocodiles because this week hosts Cam Smith and Tony G are reliving summer 1996 with Arnold's big-budget action movie follow-up to True Lies! Directed by The Mask's Chuck Russell, Eraser was originally intended as a slick, violent showcase for state of the art technology. So how has it aged? And how successful is the film at grabbing the baton from James Cameron's classic spy thriller, which blew up the box-office two years prior? Dive into the mayhem with the duo as they ponder the inner workings of witness protection programs, 1990s computer hacking and so very much more!

#19 - Red Heat (1988)

Check into a fleabag hotel and workshop some lame dirty jokes because this week hosts Cam Smith and Tony G are performing their own mismatched partners routine while tackling the Schwarzenegger/Belushi buddy cop thriller Red Heat! Directed by macho movie legend Walter Hill, this comedic Capitalism-meets-Communism actioner would seem on paper to have all the ingredients necessary to inspire a bang-up entry in the well-worn sub-genre. But is that the case? And how stellar a match do its two stars make, following almost immediately in the footsteps of all-time pairings Glover & Gibson and Nolte & Murphy? Ride along with the podcast duo as they determine whether this 1988 Arnie vehicle is hot... or not!

#18 - The Predator (2018) & Predators (2010)

Charge up those shoulder canons and prepare to expand your spine collections because this week hosts Cam Smith and Tony G are unloading a double-dose of Predator mayhem as they go toe-to-toe with both 2010's Predators as well as Shane Black's much-anticipated The Predator! Which movie will prove most victorious? Over the course of this freewheeling discussion the duo debate how successful these Arnold-less installments are and whether there's any hope for the series post-AVP. Plus, the hosts rank all the movies and try to determine how the franchise could and should evolve.

#17 - The Expendables 2 (2012)

Practice your spin kicks and dig up some old internet memes because this week hosts Cam Smith and Tony G are reuniting with their ultra-macho, hard-fighting pals the Expendables for another round of nostalgia-fueled movie mayhem! Featuring even more Arnie, plus badass additions Jean-Claude Van Damme, Chuck Norris and, uh, Liam Hemsworth (?!), this sequel to the Stallone-starring 2010 hit would seem to have plenty more to offer. But is that the case? And is this really the best showcase for our beloved icon's talents? Join the party that keeps on rollin' as the duo bow down to the Muscles from Brussels, long for more Jet Li and question Sly's decision to go emo.

#16 - The 6th Day (2000)

Crawl out of your Y2K bunkers and leash your replicated pets because this week hosts Cam Smith and Tony G are flashing back to a future filled with creepy robotic dolls, heli-glider hijinx and bone-crunching XFL football with 2000's box office under-performer The 6th Day. One of Arnie's transition films, marking a shift away from violent superheroics to more grounded everyman action, this clone thriller made little impact upon release. But did it get a raw deal? Is it perhaps a legitimately interesting entry in the big guy's sci-fi canon alongside classics like Terminator and Total Recall? Or does it just stink? Strap yourselves in as the duo ponder the film's hazy legacy, and obsess over Tony Goldwyn puns and the waking horror that is Cindy the SimPal.

#15 - Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991)

Steal some biker gear and re-learn your 90s slang terms because this week hosts Cam Smith and Tony G are chillin' out and declaring no problemo while re-experiencing James Cameron's legendary action masterwork Terminator 2: Judgment Day! Arguably the most popular movie Arnold ever headlined, this mega-hit sequel was a gargantuan phenomenon when it smashed into theatres in the summer of 1991. But now that the hype and video store-era worship has diminished a little, is it still the Muscular One's crowning achievement? And is it really that much better than the excellent 1984 original? Race along with the duo as they pay tribute to the eternal badassery of Linda Hamilton, the big guy's glorious shotgun reloading skills and lots more!

#14 - Hercules in New York/Hercules Goes Bananas (1969)

Hop in a chariot and chow down on a soft pretzel because this week hosts Cam Smith and Tony G are bounding back to the ridiculous days of 1969 when Mr. Arnold Strong was a determined young upstart chasing Hollywood dreams... to unintentionally side-splitting results! An oft-mocked example of bad movie filmmaking, this umpteenth take on the mythic Greek demigod is a goofball fish-out-of-water comedy that sees the towering titan heading into the city in search of athletic glory, weird friendships with fast-food vendors and (maybe?) romance. While pretty much a non-starter for the big guy's career, does it still count as a genuine Schwarzenegger vehicle? And is it really as terrible as everyone says? Tune in and uncover the truth for yourselves, mortals!

#13 - Twins (1988)

Iron your tan suits and slip on some over-sized sunglasses because this week hosts Cam Smith and Tony G are reviewing, in hilarious unison, Arnold's huge comedy crossover smash Twins! Famously starring Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito as unlikely brothers on a wild road trip search for their mother and a quick escape from the mob, this Ivan Reitman-helmed flick was once unavoidable on television and seemingly beloved. But was that actually the case? Or have we all been blinded by nostalgia and selective memories? Hop in the red convertible and regale as the duo grapple with classic 1980s tropes, convoluted crime subplots and impromptu "Yakety Yak" singalongs.

#12 - Killing Gunther (2017)

Mug for the camera and embrace the post-modern because this week hosts Cam Smith and Tony G are conjuring up their frustrated inner-country stars while partying with the 2017 indie comedy Killing Gunther. Starring our beloved muscle-bound icon as a legendary killer-for-hire being pursued by a colorful batch of wacky assassins, the film sees Schwarzenegger goofily sending up his big screen persona while also striving to further refine his comedic chops. But is he successful, and does the picture deserve his fearless commitment? Jump into the kooky chaos with the duo as they ask such fundamental questions as "why is this a mockumentary?," "should Arnie stop milking his famous catchphrases?" and so very much more.

#11 - The Running Man (1987)

Pull on your yellow spandex and join the resistance because this week hosts Cam Smith and Tony G loudly declare who they love by taking on Arnie's other 1987 effort, The Running Man. A notoriously turbulent production, the film has nonetheless endured thanks in no small part to its unforgettably weird rogues gallery, abundant catch-phrases and often eerily accurate forecasting of our current media landscape. Yet, beyond its colorful camp and unrestrained machismo, is the film actually that good? And how does it compare to the big guy's more critically championed 80s fare like Terminator or Predator? Don't be a plain zero, join the trio as they run through this deadly gauntlet of insanity, chaos and miscast rock stars!
