#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!

#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!

#38 - See Arnold Run (2005)

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! Televised in January 2005, this no frills production takes viewers behind the dramatic scenes of Arnold's successful governorship run, as well as into his early pre-stardom days on Muscle Beach.

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?
