Rob and Jemry’s podcast is going through the entire filmography of Arnold Schwarzenegger from start to end. Join them on their journey from Hercules in New York all the way through Terminator: Dark Fate, or whatever happens to be the latest Schwarzenegger movie when they finish the podcast. We cover our favourite sequences, rank all the movies and pit each Arnold against each other in both a hypothetical fight to the death, and a laugh-off. We address the highlights and low-lights, and even suggest how we’d do each film differently. Hi-jinks ensue on the ultimate Arnold Schwarzenegger podcast: Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents*, A Nugget Loads Podcast.
*Please note that the word “Presents” in the title is in references to the films that Arnold Schwarzenegger has gifted us, and our podcast is in no way officially connected with Arnold Schwarzenegger himself.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 44 (Terminator: Dark Fate)
Our podcast's coverage of Arnold Schwarzenegger films almost comes to an end in the penultimate episode of season 1. Joined by Nick Mason, we cover Arnold's latest* theatrical release, Terminator: Dark Fate, and review what we have learned so far, which admittedly isn't much.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 43 (Aftermath)
Joined by Avery Hutley, the podcast watches the Scoot McNairy film Aftermath and discusses cinema sound calibration, air traffic control protocol, and the merits of military training from a long, long time ago.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 42 (Killing Gunther)
Randy Adeva returns to the podcast for a record third time to discuss the extended SNL sketch that is Taran Killam's Killing Gunther, of which Arnold Schwarzenegger is the best part. Meanwhile, our fight to the death this week finally enters the MCU.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 41 (Maggie)
Joined by Katherine Allan of Well, Actually, the podcast reviews Maggie, the dramatic turn by Arnold Schwarzenegger that mostly features him standing around and brooding.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 40 (Terminator: Genisys)
Erin Michelle joins the podcast this week for Terminator Genisys, a film that doesn't ever give an explanation its portmanteau title, or any of its plot, really. Jai Courtney, Emilia Clarke and Jason Clarke all hide their natural accents and join Arnold Schwarzenegger to portray less iconic versions of characters you've seen in better terminator films.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 39 (Sabotage)
Matthew Vasquez joins the podcast this week for David Ayer’s Sabotage, an Arnold Schwarzenegger film featuring a surprising lack of sabotage. Maybe they should have gone with a more descriptive title, like Subterfuge, or Underwhelming. In other parts of the podcast, a father, a president and a music teacher walk into a sewer. No, it’s...
Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 38 (The Expendables 3)
Joined by Jordan Barr, the podcast takes another journey with a team called The Expendables that consider themselves anything but. Can the presence of Wesley Snipes and Kelsey Grammar take this movie to heights hitherto unreached by the previous films? The short answer is no.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 37 (Escape Plan)
Joined by Maddy Weeks, we goes down to the bottom floor of a top secret boat jail in search of someone named Mannheim, but only finds the subject of our podcast, Arnold Schwarzenegger. We also watch and discuss Escape Plan, for those playing at home.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 36 (The Last Stand)
Joined by Angus Gordon, we watch The Last Stand, in which Forest Whitaker chases a drug lord to the Mexican border. If you're confused as to how this premise relates to an Arnold Schwarzenegger/Johnny Knoxville small town action-comedy, join the damn club.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 35 (The Expendables 2)
Joined by Josh Webb and Matthew Hespe, it's an even bigger and more coherently edited team up than last week, as the podcast explores The Expendables 2. In this one, Arnold Schwarzenegger becomes self-aware, sees humanity as a threat to his existence, and decides to trigger a deadly nuclear strike.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 34 (The Expendables)
Tias Allard joins the podcast this week to cover The Expendables. It's a film so chock full of action stars it doesn't have any time for things like a credible plot or coherent editing, but hey, they got Arnold for a few minutes, so we're in.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 33 (Terminator Salvation)
Joined by Dave Hynes, the podcast covers the Terminator film with the least of our favourite Arnold, Terminator Salvation, and somewhat appropriately, stays the least on topic of any of our Arnold Schwarzenegger podcasts.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 32 (The Kid and I)
Joined by Bella Green and Cat Finch, the podcast takes a glimpse into the fictional life of Tom Arnold analogue Bill Williams in the movie The Kid and I, made during the Schwarzenegger-light governor years of 2003-2011.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 31 (Around the World in 80 Days)
Tess Bentley joins the podcast this week, as we watch Around the World in 80 Days, and discuss statues of the kaiju Rodan, muppets, and just what Mark Addy will do when he’s guaranteed a physician that can replace his nipples. Also, our episodic fight to the death features love/life himself, a vampire hunter, and the...
Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 30 (Terminator 3)
After an extended break in respect for the last podcast appearance of Sven, the podcast is joined by Joseph Green, who had not yet seen Terminator 2 due to a miscommunication to watch Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines. It's the first Terminator film to not feature Linda Hamilton, the first not to be directed by James Cameron, and...
Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 29 (Welcome to the Jungle/The Rundown)
Arnold Schwarzengger insists you have fun, Christopher Walken welcomes you the jungle, and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson gives you the rundown. Why can't any of these movie stars mind their own damn business?!Joined by Tom Bown, the best Arnie podcast around covers the Peter Berg classic Welcome to the Jungle (or The Rundown if you're a fan of inferior...
Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 28 (Collateral Damage)
So you want a podcast on Collateral Damage, huh? I’ll give you a podcast on Collateral Damage! Arnold Schwarzenegger goes on the hunt for The Wolf, the Colombian terrorist responsible for the death of his wife and child. He also wants to know where his comedy relief sidekick is, since every time one appears they...
Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 27 (The Sixth Day)
How can there be a The Sixth Day after the End of Days? The podcast explores by not mentioning End of Days at all, and instead discussing this Arnold Schwarzenegger movie on its own terms. Jonathan Stiglec joins Rob and Jemry to discuss the ethical conundrums of cloning Arnold Schwarzenegger, making nacho cheese bananas, and...
Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 26 (End of Days)
It’s the End of Days, but not for the podcast, as we cover the famed Arnold Schwarzenegger movie, and the eighty million cuts contained within. The wonderful Chris Ritchie joins Rob and Jemry this week for an extra long episode exploring light speed trains, flammable urine and the demons of the apple dimension.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 25 (Batman and Robin)
A freeze is coming, as Matthew Hespe joins Jemry and Rob on the podcast to chill out with the coolest movie in town, Batman and Robin. I hope you enjoy terrible ice puns, because they're certainly not going to get any better.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 24 (Eraser)
Roland Hoffmann (@RolandoHoffmann) joins Rob and Jemry on the podcast, and creates some literal Shakespearean tragedy, and also probably traumatises a fictional deer. The Arnold Schwarzenegger film Eraser also comes up in discussion, and Sven Watch makes a return.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 23 (Jingle All The Way)
Donna Collins joins Rob and Jemry on the podcast, as we discuss the ethical problems with continuing franchises and feeding poisoned 14-year-olds into woodchippers, as well as touching on Jingle All The Way for a moment or two.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 22 (Junior)
Tess Bentley joins Rob and Jemry on the podcast, as we watch Junior and learn that a bag of heroin can't raise a baby. After playing a twin of Danny DeVito, a kindergarten teacher who is also a policeman, and then himself, Ivan Reitman casts Arnold Schwarzenegger in his most unlikely role yet: a scientist!
Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 21 (True Lies)
Randy Adeva joins the podcast as we cover True Lies, our last James Cameron film before the release of Avatar IV: The Quest for Peace. With some questionable hiring procedures and horse-elevator etiquette, Arnold Schwarzenegger rides real fast past a guy on a saxophone, and oh boy, is he surprised? Yes.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 20 (Dave)
Sean Morgan joins Rob and Jemry to watch the Kevin Kline vehicle Dave, the movie that you didn't even realise had Arnold Schwarzenegger in it! A thirty second cameo for a familiar director means we have another movie to cover, and this one is full of intrigue if you watch it enough times, and notice some conspicuous corgis.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 19 (Last Action Hero)
Ry joins Rob and Jemry on the podcast as we go beyond the fourth wall, and fight a bobsled, a T-Rex and a homicidal Macaulay Culkin in John McTiernan's silliest film, Last Action Hero. Fish go both in and out of water as Danny Madigan uses a magic ticket to visit a fictional Arnold Schwarzenegger character.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 18 (Terminator 2)
Ben Searle joins Rob and Jemry on the podcast to cover Arnold Schwarzenegger classic Terminator 2, fights to the death, and what would be a very strange book club. First, however, Arnold has to learn some 90s slang from an American teenager. Cowabunga!
Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 17 (Kindergarten Cop)
Emma Holland joins Rob and Jemry to discuss talking ferrets, propeller caps, and the origins of the chalk font. They also happen to discuss Kindergarten Cop, which is lucky, because that's the whole premise of the podcast.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 15 (Red Heat)
Joined by Martin Dunlop, Rob and Jemry review, rank and revise Red Heat, the film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger as a Russian police officer on assignment in the USA. Paired opposite awful policeman and charisma vacuum Jim Belushi, the two learn that Russia and America aren't so different after all, at least when it comes to police brutality.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 14 (Twins)
What happens when you take the director of Ghostbusters, add Arnold Schwarzenegger, and throw in a handful of comedy writers? Depends on what year. Filmmaker Nic Barker joins Rob and Jemry this week for a look at the 1988 result, premise comedy Twins, co-starring Danny DeVito.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 13 (Predator)
Stick around, we're putting together a crack team of commandos to record an Arnold Schwarzenegger podcast about Predator. Joined by Dave Campbell, Rob and Jemry will need a scorpion on a knife, a spare arm, a cloaking device and way too many pencils, but be sure to hurry, because there's no time to bleed.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 12 (The Running Man)
Joined by Ry of Backyard Boys Gaming, the podcast puts on its running shoes, and covers your favourite Richard Bachman ((aka Stephen King) aka Jack Torrance) adaptation that also features Arnold Schwarzenegger, The Running Man. We hope you saved room for this podcast because we're going to ram it into your earholes & break your god damn spine!
Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 11 (Raw Deal)
Remember not to drink and bake, as we go from being the sheriff of a small town to undercover with the mob, as the podcast arrives at the Arnold Schwarzenegger classic, Raw Deal. Magnets, junkyards, and games of chicken with bulldozers dominate as Arnie tears apart the mob piece by piece.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 10 (Commando)

Pull on your Levis, grip your sword loosely, and marvel as Arnie appears at the last minute to save our heroine EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 08 (The Terminator)

Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 07 (Conan the Destroyer)
Wilt Chamberlain, Grace Jones, Andre the Giant, and the return of Mako?! Join us for a thrilling romp through the highs of Conan's second adventure, and the fun, active atmosphere that encompasses it. Forget that silly podcast that put down Conan the Barbarian. Now this is a movie!
Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 06 (Conan The Barbarian)

Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 05 (The Jayne Mansfield Story)
Which famous bodybuilder could our favourite Arnold be playing in this dramatised biopic? Could he be playing Jayne Mansfield herself? No, that would be too good for human consumption. you'll have to listen to our podcast to find out, or at least look up the cast list on IMDb or Wikipedia.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 04 (Cactus Jack/The Villain)
Arnold Schwarzenegger plays a handsome stranger called Handsome Stranger in this ridiculous comedy from 1979. The twist is that it's really just a live action Road Runner movie, with Kirk Douglas as Wile E. Coyote. The other twist is that they shouldn't have hired Paul Lynde.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 03 (Pumping Iron)
It's a 90° swerve into a documentary for the podcast this week, as we look at one of Arnold's "as himself" credits, and perhaps his most important (after Last Action Hero, naturally). Sure, there's a bit of Franco Columbu here, or some Lou Ferrigno there, but it's really Arnold who steals the show.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 02 (Stay Hungry)
Jeff Bridges and Sally Field co-star in this charm- wait a minute, this is Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents! Former Mr. Universe Arnold Schwarzenegger plays a Mr. Universe hopeful at a gym Jeff Bridges is looking to demolish. That is, until the charming gym members win Jeff Bridges heart and Arnold Schwarzenegger a Golden Globe!
Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 01 (Hercules in New York)
It's 1970, and we live in a pre-Pumping Iron, pre-Conan world. Arnie has so little clout, they rename him to Arnold Strong as an in-joke, and dub over him. Also, he fights a man in a bear-suit, and loses a weight lifting competition, two things the real Arnold Schwarzenegger would never do.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Presents – Episode 45 (Arnold Schwarzenegger Battle Royale)
It's finally here, the first annual Arnold Schwarzenegger Battle Royale! Marvel as all 44 previous Arnold Schwarzenegger characters are sorted into categories and forced to fight to the death in a tournament scenario. Can Mr. Freeze overcome Handsome Stranger?
