I won't try to comment on them much as people since I don't know too much (especially about Arnold's political career). I respect Stallone a lot more since he's such a talented writer and a genuinely good actor when he needs to be. But I think I like Arnold more as a performer, for the silly, campy, out there movies those guys made, Arnold's brand of scenery chewing insanity is hard to beat. If you're just looking at their silly movies, Arnold wins. Overall, it kinda feels like comparing apples to oranges, but I think I might go with Stallone, since I actually feel a real emotional connection to the Rocky series and First Blood to an extent.

I can't vote either. You should add BOTH. Anyway, I like both depends on what movies they are on. I like Arnold as an actor more than Sylvester minus when he was Government. Sylvester Stallion, not my favourite at all. Don't liked him. I enjoyed some of his movies, thought.

Hard to say.

I suppose in the end it will have to be Sylvester Stallone even if he has more films I actively don't care for (that last Rambo film...), and he has the better direct to DVD/old action star career of the two (though far from the best of the various 80s action stars). If we can't count demolition man then it would go the other way.

Also if people have not seen Escape Plan (which features both of them) then do that if you are after something more like what you had wanted from the Expendables. Have not seen the sequels though.

haha, what about some of the one-liners in commando with Arnold. "lay off some steam, Bennett" when he impales that guy with a pipe. damn, I wish movies were still like that. the movies now are forgettable.

btw, I downloaded those Rocky movies recently for the nvidia shield:

the only one I haven't seen is Creed 2, which I lumped in there.

A Sidenote:

This Scene and for Example the Scene in "Predator" (I think in English he says"Not move" after he pinned him with an big Knife)
and many such One Liners are censored/cutted out here in Austria/Germany on the VHS Releases.:angry:

there's a youtube video with like the top 100 one-liners by Arnold. it's hilarious. I didn't even realize there were that many.

my friend does a good impression of Rocky saying "Mick" when Mich dies. leave it to penguin.

My favourite Arnold one-liners are from The Running Man, because they're so out there you can't even tell if they're bad on purpose or just bad. My personal favourite is, after killing a dude named Sub-Zero, "Killian, here's your Sub-Zero. Now, plain zero."

that's a good movie. RIchard Dawson from what I remember.

--------------------- MERGED ---------------------------

it seems weird to see him as a villain. I remember him from Family Feud, and I think he was in Hogan's Heroes.

btw, I have a book I got in Japan that has funny conversations in it translated from Japanese to English. at the back, there's famous movie quotes, and one of them is the hasta la vista, baby quote from Terminator 2. the book is hilarious, because it has these skulls to tell you how offensive saying a certain thing is in English. there's a part where a guy says that his girlfriend is so hairy down there that it's like a "wookie bush." who would even say that in English!?

They're both fantastic so it's hard to choose. Schwarzenegger has his iconic accent which adds A LOT to the movies, especially to "Hercules in New York" whereas the dubbed version takes away all the fun.

For me, Stallone is the better of the bunch. Rocky, Rambo, Creed, Cobra.

Those who labeled Rambo 5 as "racist", this is for them:

Where there those that cried racist for Rambo 5, or at least any worth paying attention to (which is to say would said same also call my having a tortilla for my lunch as that, or cultural appropriation or whatever the term is today)?

Personally I just thought it was a bad film. Not written at all how Rambo would act (no opsec and thus getting his head kicked in when observing things, why he did not bring her to a hospital there and then rather than trying to get back, poor weapon choice in the tunnels bit, awful tactics in general,...) and not shot all that well in a lot of cases either. I know they can do well as we have 4 in still recent enough times that was actually pretty good.
