View Full Version : Fav Arnie Movie?

Fav Arnie Movie? End of Days, but Total Recall comes a close second.

Yes I know I forgot True Lies, and Kindergarden Cop, and probably more, but hey, there's always a next time (or a kindly moderator could edit the list :))

10-01-2001, 07:03 AM
Terminator, or Terminator 2 seem quite conspicuous by their absence

10-01-2001, 07:05 AM
Doh! Man I've stuffed this up haven't I? Damn, I had not being able to edit polls!

10-01-2001, 07:31 AM
yup, happy labour day by the way.

10-01-2001, 07:37 AM
My vote is for T2......too bad it's not here!

10-01-2001, 07:47 AM
It's only Labour Day in the ACT (Australian Capital Territory), NSW (New South Wales) and in SA(South Australia). I'm in Queensland (QLD), so there's no public holiday today!

10-01-2001, 07:48 AM
It was Labor Day (THERE IS NO U IN LABOR!!!) here about 4 weeks ago....

10-01-2001, 07:52 AM

lol. We have the same way of spelling as Britain does.

Labor is Labour.

10-01-2001, 07:56 AM
Need American's be reminded of where the English language came from?

10-01-2001, 07:56 AM
> Labor is Labour.

NO! There is no reason for these unecessary u's! Damn you and your weird talking and spellings!

Color != Colour
Favorite != Favourite, and

That's the reason you Europeans never accomplish anything! Too damn busy writing u's! :p

> Need American's be reminded of where the English language came from?

Yup - the bastardization of every other decent language - German, Spanish, French, Latin, etc. ad inifitum....

Like I paid that much information to that part of my Dilbert a day calendar and know that much about antipodean geographical/political bouandaries.

Australians appear to have differnt grammar though, "Spelling's" surely no apostrophe needed, anyeay, I see my choice has made it to the poll and I can vote.

10-01-2001, 08:00 AM
Well if it helps I'm not European :)

Incidently Jail is spelt Gaol, although very rarely...

This should humour you...

My favourite colour to wear on labour day is black. I got thrown in gaol because of this.

10-01-2001, 08:01 AM
>>Australians appear to have differnt grammar though

No that's just my bad grammar.

10-01-2001, 08:04 AM
European, Australian... You're not from central Michigan - this makes you different. This is bad... :p

Need the Australians be reminded where they came from? (oh wait, never mind - same place as the US... Well, at least the 13 originals... It'd be more accurate to say MI's from the Frenchies... This is a lengthy parenthetical comment)

> My favourite colour to wear on labour day is black. I got thrown in gaol because of this.

You bastard. You unbelievable bastard. :p

10-01-2001, 08:04 AM

How about we drop the 'un-necessary' u's if you change tire back to having a y instead of the i that I saw everywhere on holiday over there and that you put all the 'er's from words like sabre and centre back the way they belong.

Although I do prefer thru' than through.

10-01-2001, 08:08 AM
And Govt - Z is pronounced Zed, not Zee.

Does anyone else here find it ironic that a post about a man who can't hardly speak english :D, has become a discussion on the finer points of grammar?

10-01-2001, 08:10 AM
No way - we'll rearrange the letters when you call trucks and apartments by their correct names....

btw - Thru's not an accepted proper spelling here, either...

Let's think about this.

Saber - pronounced say-ber
Sabre - pronounced say-ber not sa-bray

Which makes more sense?

10-01-2001, 08:11 AM
> And Govt - Z is pronounced Zed, not Zee.

NNNOOOO!!!! GET OUT OF MY HEAD!!! That's it - I'm switching to speaking in C....

10-01-2001, 08:12 AM
Sabre does of course.

Trucks are trucks here in Australia, but apartments are called flats.

"I saw a Fosters truck from out the window of my flat."

10-01-2001, 08:15 AM
Surely "can hardly speak English".

As an individual letter z is pronounced zed but in or at the end of words it works fine in terms of pronounciation.

If you go by pronounciation of letter combinations you can spell the word 'fish' 'ghoti' although I forget the whole explanation.

gh as in cough, and ti as in station but I can't recall which word to misuse to get the middle vowel sound.

Should we give this topic it's own thread as well?

10-01-2001, 08:17 AM
>>Surely "can hardly speak English".

Can't (Cannot) is acceptable as well :p

10-01-2001, 08:18 AM
> Should we give this topic it's own thread as well?

I don't think so - I doubt Arnie's gonna generate that much interest on his own (sorry [&])

Just to you guys, I'm not prepared to have a really serious debate about why the American dialect is better... The minute someone cites a real resource where there sorry ass looked uyp smth to prove me wrong, I will pronounce myself winner and exile the loser to cplusplus.com

10-01-2001, 08:20 AM
Trucks are trucks, apartments are flats, I only saw thru' in airports so assumed it was to save space on signs, I think it is a valid use of an apostrophe.

We could put an English/American dictionary up somewhere.
It's trousers by the way, pants are underwear. Jello is jelly, jelly is jam, chips are crisps, fries are chips, faucets are taps, the sidewalk is the pavement this could just run and run. lets end it now and agree to interpret at run time.

10-01-2001, 08:38 AM
Excellent special effects and the story is really kewl, especially if you're workin' in a robot research lab yourself ;)


10-01-2001, 01:46 PM
C'mon - I'm the only one here that liked Kindergarten Cop? I can't believe that...

"Who is your Daddy and what does he do?"
"You're not so tough without your car, are ya?"

These are classic lines! I, for one, was appalled when that wasn't at the top of the AFI Top 100 list. Waterworld and Ishtar were also notably absent.

10-01-2001, 01:55 PM
There are a couple of local radio guys who took a bunch of clips of Arnie from Kindergarten cop and would call people and play them. Including,
"Who is your Daddy and what does he do?"

They would carrie on 5 and 10 minute conversations. Very, very funny.

Person: "Who is this?"
Arnie: "I'm a cop! And I am going to ask you some questions"

That kind of stuff.

10-01-2001, 01:59 PM
I got a flash program from someone that had a bunch of his lines and would play one whenever you hit a button. A couple of friends of mine walked around for about 3 days just repeating "Who is your daddy, and what does he do?" and "Stop it!" Arnie-style... Priceless...

I'm saddened that they took down Hitler-Arnold at my gym, tho (they had a poster of his up where he's flexing and it looks like a sieg heil thing....)

10-01-2001, 02:24 PM
Kindergarten cop was pretty cool:

"Boys have penises, girls have vaginas..."


I don't really like arnold movies much, though....they remind me too much of the "Final Fantasy" movie *shudders* which reminds me that I need to start a thread for that on it's own sooner or later.

C'mon, you europeans need to bow to our powers of bastardization.

I liked Last Action Hero alot. Terminator 2 was excellent, also.

But I guess my favorite is T1. A lot of action and suspense without all the coolio dialogue of T2. T2 was great but a little too

Black River (or is it mtn?) is a real action hero.

Anybody want to learn to speak Australian? Just listen to a
Fosters commercial. :)

yeah... like in drive-thru... it looks cooler...
