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? Will the T-800 Terminator defeat the T-850 one? And who exactly is Bar Patron?
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.
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.
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.
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 unfortunately, the first one that’s just not that good.
