  • Arnold!

    2012 - 04.05

    So Arnold Schwarzenegger is back to acting, this probably isn’t really news to most people.  He’s recently confirmed that there will be sequel to Twins, which will reunite him with Danny DeVito and will add Eddie Murphy as an additional sibling, making the movie “Triplets”.  Don’t know that I’m personally looking forward to that one, my favourite comedic turn for Arnold is Commando with Kindergarten Cop as a close second.

    It did however get me thinking what movies from his catalog I would like to see sequels to, and these are the ones which I came up with:

    1. True Lies (1994) – great movie, really fun, good concepts and well executed.  Left the door open for additional sequels which never happened.  As Red showed movies with old spies can work, so there’s potential here… at least if you can wrestle Jamie Lee Curtis away from her guest staring roles on NCIS.
    2. Eraser (1996) – another solid movie, got a little silly at times, but still the core concept was good and could easily translate into a sequel.  Additionally this could be converted into a series or transitioned to another actor, but the core is solid.  Not exactly In Plain Sight, but on some level that’s a good thing.
    3. Commando (1985) – ok, I don’t really want a sequel to this one necessarily but with him taking a bigger role in The Expendables 2 which serves to some degree as a spiritual successor I think I’m good.

    There’s a new version of Total Recall coming out shortly, which although an Arnold role really didn’t need to be an Arnold role, except that it was probably his star power which helped to enable the movie to be made.
