#41 - Kull the Conqueror (1997): The Conan 3 That Almost Was!

Awaken an ancient evil and wield a flaming sword blindfolded because hosts Cam Smith and Tony G are tangling with the 1997 Kevin Sorbo vehicle Kull the Conqueror! Originally envisioned as a third Conan entry, this Robert E. Howard adaptation - a mostly forgotten box office bomb - retains many of the trappings of Schwarzenegger's barbarian epics. But is it worthy of standing alongside them? Join the duo as they perform some cinematic archaeology, examining the film's source material and development history, in an attempt to answer the eternal question: does Kull indeed rock???

#40 - Escape Plan (2013)

Analyze your surroundings and engineer some rudimentary nautical tools because hosts Cam Smith and Tony G are getting taken to the cooler alongside Arnie and Sly with 2013's Escape Plan. One of Schwarzenegger's first post-politics comeback vehicles, the film sadly proved to be anything but with critics or audiences. However, is it possibly a hidden gem in the big guy's filmography? And does the teaming of the two action megastars deliver the desired fireworks? Lock yourself in for a fun and lively trip with the duo and they journey into the inescapable (?) glass-walled recesses of the Tomb!

Study up on your water policy and hit the campaign trail because hosts Cam Smith and Tony G are going toe to toe with the A&E biopic See Arnold Run!

Rip your magic ticket and blow up an ice cream truck because this week hosts Cam Smith and Tony G are taking on Arnold's notorious 1993 wannabe blockbuster Last Action Hero. Utterly torn apart by critics and audiences alike at the time of release, this turbulent John McTiernan production has forever been framed as one of Hollywood's all-time disasters.

#35 - Kindergarten Cop (1990)

Thwart a lunch theft and kick off an "Old MacDonald" sing-a-long because this week hosts Cam Smith and Tony G are trudging back into Arnie comedy territory with 1990's Kindergarten Cop! Directed by Ivan Reitman, this big box-office hit spawned a dozen iconic catchphrases, many of which wound up on oft-used internet soundboards. But are there still laughs to be had from the material almost two decades later? And does the film's odd mixture of wisecracking kid antics and dark mature themes still hold up? Pay attention cause this class is in session!

Smear some dirt on your face and start dodging attack drones because this week hosts Cam Smith and Tony G are leaping back to the future in order to take on McG's polarizing 2009 franchise reboot Terminator Salvation. Poorly reviewed at the time, this box-office underperformer has since been cast aside in favor of further series reinventions. But is that fair?
