As per usual, if you haven't read the previous episodes, here's where it all began. The others can be found via my profile.
Zach, it seems we're in quite the predicament. We try to do the right thing, but there are always people who want to stop us, or even punish us. Being punished for doing the right thing...it's frustrating, isn't it Zach? It does put me in mind of a certain movie, though. It came out in 1987 and was a bombastic action movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. Do you remember the first movie you saw him in, Zach? Mine was Conan the Barbarian and he was a sight to behold. All muscles and few words. Of course now I know it was because he couldn't speak fluent English yet, but at the time he seemed like the perfect action star. It's ironic he was so silent in that role since he became much more famous for his one-liners.
Always a one-liner for every occasion in everything from Commando to Terminator. Remember that one, Zach? One of the few times he played the villain. I always liked the first one better, even as a guilty pleasure. The effects haven't aged well, but seeing Arnold as the villain never quite gets old. It makes the twist in the second movie all the more interesting! They make you think that Arnold is a badguy until the last second, when he tells John Connor to 'get down!' I remember my jaw hitting the floor in the theater, Zach, when it turned out he was the good guy. Did you have a movie where your expectations were completely turned around? A movie has to try really hard to achieve that perfectly and Terminator 2 does just that. Still, the first one was so very 80s. Linda Hamilton had such crazy hair and it seemed weird that Michael Biehn, soldier from the future, had perfectly feathered hair. Zach, do you have a favorite dated movie that you just can't seem to let go of?
