#50 - Arnold's Collaborators, pt.3: Sven-Ole Thorsen

Don a futuristic security guard uniform and chase down the anti-life equation because this week hosts Cam Smith and Tony G are taking on Arnold's most frequent collaborator, the incomparable Mr. Sven-Ole Thorsen.

#49 - End of Days (1999)

Knock back a revolting smoothie and shout at the devil because hosts Cam Smith and Tony G are setting the world ablaze with a timely rewatch of Arnold's Y2K-influenced horror actioner End of Days! Directed by journeyman extraordinaire Peter Hyams, this supernatural thriller was plagued with terrible reviews back in the fall of 1999. But has the film aged better than expected? Or does the whole Schwarzenegger vs. Satan concept still come across as dopey? Take a break from headbanging to the movie's nu metal-heavy soundtrack album and tune in!

#48 - Christmas in Connecticut (1992)

Dust off your kitschy ornament collection and start flipping flapjacks because hosts Cam Smith and Tony G are getting downright festive with Arnie's sole movie directing effort, Christmas in Connecticut. Originally broadcast on the TNT network, this glossy remake of the 1945 Barbara Stanwyck gem boasts an all-star cast and no shortage of comic potential. But is it a wonderful gift from Santa or a sad lump of coal in the proverbial stocking? And how does Schwarzenegger fare behind the camera? Does this movie serve as a fascinating 'what if?" Reset your turkey timer and tune in for some holiday podcast fun!

#47 - Total Recall (2012)

Hop in an elevator and punch out a Star Wars-y robot because hosts Cam Smith and Tony G are plugging back in to the world of Total Recall, this time with the 2012 remake starring Colin Farrell and Kate Beckinsale. Directed by Underworld mastermind Len Wiseman, this expensive second take on Philip K. Dick's short story proved controversial with film fans at the time of its release, and has seemingly been almost completely forgotten since. But is it worth revisiting? Does Wiseman offer an interesting alternate perspective on the material? And is Farrell an acceptable Arnie substitute? Clear your mind and settle in for another mind-bending podcast headtrip!

#46 - Total Recall (1990)

Hail a robo-cab and embark on your dream vacation because hosts Cam Smith and Tony G are rocketing off to Mars with Paul Verhoeven's 1990 summer blockbuster Total Recall. Loosely adapted from a Philip K. Dick short story, this sci-fi head-tripper was a gamble that paid of hugely for Arnold. But, viewed almost 30 years later, does it warrant lofty inclusion alongside the most prestigious entries in his filmography? Do Verhoeven's weird ideas and over-the-top flights of lunacy still thrill? And does familiarity with this film make The Sixth Day worse? Sit back and get ready for the podcasting ride of your life!

#45 - Terminator: Dark Fate (2019)

Toss on some cargo shorts and hang some drapes because hosts Cam Smith and Tony G are riding along with Arnie, Linda, and their whole new gang, in the umpteenth Terminator franchise course-correction Dark Fate! Produced by James Cameron and directed by Deadpool's Tim Miller, this direct sequel to Judgment Day aims to reenergize the somewhat rusty brand. But is it successful? Do the new characters pop? And how do Schwarzenegger and Hamilton fare reprising their iconic badass action hero roles? Jump in the podcast truck and barrel down the chaos-laden highway with the duo and find out!

#44 - Terminator Genisys (2015)

Update your trendy apps and embrace temporal paradoxes because hosts Cam Smith and Tony G are embarking on a convoluted time-hopping adventure with Sarah Conner, Kyle Reese and the good 'ol T-800 in 2015's ill-fated franchise reboot Terminator Genisys! Directed by Alan Taylor, this costly new take on somewhat rusty material was intended to launch a whole new trilogy. Alas, the public felt differently. Was that for the better? Did Genisys bring interesting new ideas to the table? Or did it deserve to get tossed on the box-office scrap pile and forgotten? The duo break it all down!

# 43 - Around the World in 80 Days (2004)

Put on a silly helmet and build yourself a Victorian flying machine because hosts Cam Smith and Tony G are travelling by land, sea and air with Disney's 2004 adaptation of Jules Verne's classic tale Around the World in 80 Days. Featuring Arnie in a truly unforgettable showcase supporting role, this costly Jackie Chan/Steve Coogan vehicle was a box office flop upon initial release and seems to have been quickly forgotten. But is that fair? Is there fun to be had with this martial arts-happy globe-trotting adventure? Or does it just go nowhere fast? Join the duo on their grand journey and discover for yourself!

#42 - The Last Stand (2013)

Polish your sheriff's badge and drive through a cornfield because hosts Cam Smith and Tony G are watching Arnie take down a fast and furious foe in 2013's The Last Stand! The big guy's first starring vehicle post-politics, the film - directed by celebrated South Korean filmmaker Jee-woon Kim - wasn't exactly an explosive comeback at the box office. But is there merit to its goofy "aging lawman vs. drug-lord in a souped-up speedster" premise? And, given the prestigious talent behind the camera, does it feel a cut above other late career Schwarzenegger efforts? Take the ride and find out!
