Thursday List – Top Arnie One Liners
With the re-mastering and release of Total Recall on Blu-Ray in a nest week, Scott takes a look at his favourite Arnie one liners
Arnold Schwarzenegger was a hero when I was growing up in the 80s. Before he went all political and became the Governator, he was the biggest (literally) action star around. His camp humour and one liners became a big part of his films. The guy was never going to be the best actor in the world, but at least he embraced this and use his accent to its full potential. He gave us some of the best ever one liners that are oft quoted to this day.
Here is my favourites, what are yours? Oh I am avoiding the Biggies by the way.
If it bleeds, we can kill it
Film – Predator
Arnie as Dutch explaining the plan after the team shoot down half the forest and manage to cut the Predator’s leg…
Who is your Daddy? And What does he do?
Film – Kindergarten cop
Not strictly a great one liner, but it is the one I use the most to show off my very poor Arnie impression…
Consider THAT a divorce
Film – Total Recall
Arnie has found out that Sharon Stone is not his wife but a secret agent instead, she tries to worm her way out of being shot…. But it doesn’t go well.
Remember when I said I would kill you last? …… I lied!!!
Film – Commando
Commando is a wash with great one liners, every one cheesier than the last. This is my particular fave.
Come With Me If You Want To Live
Film – Terminator 2: Judgement Day
OK, I said I was staying away from the big ones, but I couldn’t resist adding this to my list. It is a line that is immortal with the Terminator films and Arnie.
You Want to be a farmer? Here’s a couple of acres!!!
Film – The Last Action Hero
This line is super funny, also it is followed by a kick in the nuts that will make any mans eyes water
See you at the Party Richter
Film – Total Recall
Not strictly a pun but still a great put down. Spoken by Quaid when he is left with a couple of severed arms in his hands!! Nice.
Total Recall: Special Edition is released in UK on Blu-ray on 16th July by Studiocanal. Also it is being screened nationally on the big screen across the country from 10th July, check it out!!
