    haha great stuff! Indeed, Arnold is completely right when he says it's the WAY he said certain lines that made them so awesome! Not just "I'll be back", but also "it's not a tumor" in Kindergarden Cop! :)

    I totally agree, remakes are 99% the dumbest thing you can do. And the Total recall remake is almost the worst remake ever made. And the new "Conan" is also 99,99% trash. The only good thing in the remake are the women looking good...

    it really is insulting that trump was credited as being a republican on national news when everyone knows he is no republican at all. he just wished to ruin the name by connecting his name witrh it. it really is shallo0w that they would take a name that was created by such creative and world bettering men like the republicans and cheapen it with a total loser like donalds trumps name as some huge punked episode. the republicans ended slavery for a long time. donald trump just helped bring slavery back to america and conducted a holocaust thats killed almost a million innocent people. my friend jimmy was one of them. i want donald trump hung and i want to be there to confirm it happened. i liked saddam hussein way better than donald trump. saddamj actually did things that helped america. donald never did.

      There were three big stars in 90s in my opinion Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jean Claude Vaddam and Slyvestor Stallone. There were other big stars as well e.g. Bruce Willis, Jet Li, etc but those three were in competition with each other. It seems one would make a movie and then next week another movie would be made either by the other two and as a result everybody knew their name.
