He can make you laugh
He lives the American
The Terminator - fast food delivery driver??
A friend of mine is adamant that Arnold started life as a fast food delivery driver. Honestly. Can you imaging The Terminator delivering pizzas to your door? He'd have to extend his food delivery insurance to cover frightening his customers to death.
However, here's the top
reason to love him: Because Arnold "The Terminator" can kill you quickly
or slowly - depending upon his cyborg mood. No one wants to irritate The
Terminator and getting on his bad side could prove to be fatal for you and
everyone in the surrounding vicinity. This character might have come after
Arnold the Barbarian - sorry, that should be Conan the Barbarian, but the
unlovable man/machine is the role that most likely made Arnold
Schwarzenegger a household name, right up there with Spam, Chevy and
The movie, The Terminator (1984), first showcased Arnold as a quiet
anti-hero who could terrify while saying very little. Arnold's Terminator
reminded moviegoers that it is possible for an Energizer bunny-like cyborg
to really screw up your day. Arnold's character kept going and going and
going despite losing part of the flesh from his face, an eye (which
provided an excruciatingly gruesome scene with a knife) and other body
parts. Even when The Terminator was almost obliterated, he kept on coming.
You gotta love a guy who is determined!
Arnold later showed a less prickly and more lovable Terminator with
personality in 1992's Terminator 2: Judgment Day. He reprised the role of
the misunderstood metal man with a heart of umm, metal, once again in
Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines in 2003.
The Terminator proved that you can die once, you can die twice, you can
even die three times - but Arnold Schwarzenegger will always be around.
After all he did promise "I'll be back."
Conan the Barbarian
and the Destroyer (Because there were two of them)
If The Terminator doesn't
convince you of your love for Arnold (or your need to love him, or else),
then the blood-tinged sword and sorcery shenanigans of a certain barbaric
and brutish hero named Conan should do the trick. Who wouldn't love a guy
who has sex with a freaky witch then decapitates her? That's just smooth.
Arnold was able to show off his toned and ripped abs as well as everything
else, by running around in a loin cloth. That is definitely love-worthy.
Next good reason ....
