32. "Last Action Hero" is excellent
Arnie proves he's not beyond poking fun at his own image and the entire affair was pretty telling in its lampooning of action-movie stereotypes. The dude who played Benedict (Charles Dance), the glass-eyed villian, was also superb - he's got to be one of the most over-the-top bad guys in movie history.

The film may not have the substance of "Total Recall" or "Terminator II" (or even others, like "Predator" and "Running Man") but it's probably my favorite Schwarzenegger film, at least in terms of being able to watch and enjoy the thing over and over.

Some great supporting actors in it, too. I mean, dude, Sirs Ian McKellen and Larry Olivier were in it..... :D

"I'm the famous comedian, Arnold Braunschweiger."

"Where are the ordinary, everyday women? They don't exist, because this is a movie!"

"No, this is California."
