Is AhhNolds Movie Career FINISHED?
I wonder. Whether or not he 'wins' this thing, will he be investigated for sexual battery and will THAT revelation effectively end his movie career?

who the hell wants to see or support him in any more movies if these aligations turn out to be true?

is Arnold finished?

Many of them wouldn't care if he raped babies, as long as he's a Republican.

6. I for 1 will NEVER watch one oh his films again.
And that bums me big time because I really liked 'Total Recall' and 'Predator'.
And in the words of his alter-ego in TR, we would all be better off if Arnie followed his advice.... PLEASE "Get your ass to Mars, Get your ass to Mars, Get your ass to Mars...."

10. From what I read, he was already going downhill...
his last two movies lost money and, after all, that is what kills the "stars".

14. The ONLY good thing about a Schwarzenegger victory
... would be the absolute DEATH of his movie career.

Worst... actor... ever.

24. 100% with you
And Spazito, Schwarzenegger's latest movie, T3: Rise of the Machines, was expected to make over $200 million here in the U.S. It barely passed the $150 million mark a week or so ago and it was released in early July. Considering the budget of the movie, that would be far from a success. That's probably what secured Ahnuld's run for the "People's Governator of Guh-lee-for-nya."

Die, career, die!

15. It ended Fatty Arbuckle's career even though he was acquitted.
I personally won't watch him and I don't. I have always
found him offensive. I can't suspend disbelief watching
people I can't stand. Tom Cruise is in the same category
along with Mel Gibson.

16. Let hope it is the "End of Days" or he is "Collateral damage".
Man did they stink as does he.

I for one will not be watching any more crap by
Arnolf Gropenator.

It will not be hard.

18. Is Rob Lowe's movie career finished?
Does anyone watch Roman Polanski's films?

Can Woody Allen still get a movie funded?

How is Kelsey Grammer doing?

Not to mention Jerry Lee Lewis, Chuck Berry, Errol Flynn and a host of others.

Should Arnold decide to restart his film career at some point, I expect that he'll have no difficulties related to the allegations against him.

19. His Movie Career Was Finished Anyway
Edited on Tue Oct-07-03 07:59 PM by Crisco
I pointed this out in another thread.

According to imdb.com, his last several films barely recouped the cost of making them, that is the US box office figures, and in some cases, didn't recoup. Overseas put them into the profitable zone, but not by much.


Oh and by the way - I don't know if anyone else noticed this, but the USA Network was showing 'Total Recall' almost EVERY DAY throughout September.

22. Either way... Ahnold is now toast.... even if he wins he loses...
When this recall process began I thought he was a fairly harmless moron who found it hard to remember his lines and consequently delivered them all in a monotone....

Now I know he is.

1. A Nazi
2. A Rapist
3. A Racist
4. A friend of corporate organised crime...

So the way I see it, yes his movie career is over, he would be far too much of a liability for a producer to take on board now. His traditional roles like Terminator require blockbuster audiences not to lose bundles and the producers are risk averse... as for his comical roles, twins, Mr Mom etc... family friendly fun the Governator is not.

So what if he wins...

Here is a person who has fifty times as much sleaze and skeleton baggade as any politician in recent history.

Q: How will a Nazi, rapist racist perform in office....
A: Not at all... he will spend his every moment on assuming office fighting the calls for him to step down... he will be a lame-duck Gov. at best. And at worst will be recalled himself in a matter of months...

God Bless California...

And ** fingers crossed ** lets hope the recall will fail...

25. It already was.
Arnold commented a few months back that T3 was probably going to be his last movie. He said he was getting too old for action flicks, and that's the only kind of movie he gets cast for anymore. Politics and activism is intended to be his second career.
