Top 10: Arnold Schwarzenegger Films

With news that Arnold's finally making his film comeback I decided it was a good time to look back at all the joys he's given us in the past.

10. Conan the Destroyer - It's surprisingly slim pickens at the top here. So although this isn't a very good film, it's at least got enough etertaining elements to make the cut - Arnie punching out a camel and crazy ass Grace Jones.
Red Heat

9. Red Heat - I wonder why Arnie wasn't cast more often as an international cop to help explain his extreme accent?

8. True Lies - Far from James Cameron's best (His only worse films are Piranha 2 and Titanic), but it's still got some nice, well staged big action scenes. Arnie's last decent action outing.

7. The Running Man - He was a man ahead of his time - predicting the future reality TV craze.

6. Commando - Pretty cheesy, but this is the type of film he's best known for - Single handedly taking on an army of international bad guys while all the time delivering classic one-liners.

5. Total Recall - His first true classic to make it on this list. Teaming up with Verhoeven is always a good idea.

4. Predator- His best ensemble pic. A great blend of badass characters along with one of the best monsters ever created.

3. Terminator 2: Judgement Day - The only thing dragging this down from being a perfect film is the prick kid.

2. Terminator - The best of the Terminator series. Sometimes its easy to make fun of Arnie's questionable acting skills, but he was amazing at plaing an emotionless killing machine.

1. Conan the Barbarian - His first and still best starring role. I'm holding out hope of some day getting the true sequel to this written and directey by John Milius - King Conan.
