One of the most definitive Arnie movies

"I'm not into politics. I'm into survival. "

Mere months following the release of Predator in mid-1987, Arnold Schwarzenegger was back in action for The Running Man; a fast-paced, futuristic action movie which takes a satiric poke at TV, greed, social injustice, and America's preoccupation with violence and game shows. Based rather loosely on the novella by Stephen King (under the p... read more

Undoubtedly one of Arnie's finest. The Running Man takes place in a dystopian future where violent game shows are regularly screened to the baying populace in an attempt to appease to oppressed. Arnies' character, Ben Richards, is a police helicopter pilot who nobly refuses to gun down hoards of unarmed civilians in a downtown food riot. He is swiftly overpowered by his colleagues (yeah right) who... read more

Total Film's 50 Deadliest Movie Games (50 movies items)

"The Players: Convicted criminals, including Ben Richards (Arnold Schwarzenegger). The Rules: Once again, this is a hunting game, where players are pitted against murderous “stalkers” and must fight – or run – to survive. How To Win: Run like hell until you’re the last one left alive. But even the winners aren’t guaranteed any kind of future, so this is a game best played by cheating."

The future kind of sucks. (307 movies items)

"Reason for the future sucking: A game show, where people compete against killers, the "winners" get to survive. Also, the contestants, are criminals, some of them framed for crimes, they didn't commit, plus the world's economy has collapsed. Year it takes place: 2019"

Movies the giraffe watched in 2014: June (26 movies items)

"Re-watch - June 3rd I've always loved this film. I can't even count how many times I watched it on cable over the years (back when I actually lived in a house that had cable, that is). But I don't think I've watched it since the '90s ended, and for supporting evidence of this I'll mention how I'd forgotten everything before Richards shows up in the woman's apartment (I'm guessing that means that's the point I usually started watching back then). Ahnuld gets so many great cheesy one-liners, and "

Film Journal - May, 2014 (71 movies items)

" "Once he was Sub Zero. Now, he is just plain zero." Before there was Survivor, American Gladiators, Battle Royale, The Hunger Games, Divergent, and Maze Runner, there was this delightfully cheesy and over the top film. Not one of my favorite Stephen King movies, but still a pretty decently fun film."

WatchMojo’s Top 10 Movies That Remind Us Of The Hu (10 movies items)

"In this post-apocalyptic action film, a police officer, played by Arnold, is wrongly convicted of massacring rioting civilians. He is placed in a deadly TV reality show, where the contestants are promised freedom if they survive. Like “The Hunger Games,” this story was inspired by a novel; however, it adds such things as deadly hockey players, a dude covered in light bulbs, and a bunch of Arnie’s best one liners."
