​I'm Talking Here!
Monday November 4th, 2019 with Joshua Robert Batman and Josh Murray
Arnold Schwarzenegger 1: Judgment Recall Jr.

After some brief sighs about Edward Norton's Motherless Brooklyn (2019), the Joshes tackle a subject near and dear to their hearts. It's not a tumor, or mono, but rather, the films of Arnold Schwarzenegger. In honour of Terminator: Dark Fate (2019), which neither host got around to seeing yet, it's a deep dive on the legacy of Arnie as a whole and his unique stardom. It turns out it tends to be his pairings with big directors that the Joshes remember most fondly: Paul Verhoeven's Total Recall (1990), James Cameron's True Lies (1994), and John McTiernan's Predator (1987) and Last Action Hero (1993). The on-topic tangents include how Jingle All the Way somehow works, Cameron preparing Arnold for comedy, Arnold's sneaky Keanu Reeves-like slow grasp of acting nuance, and candidates for governor. Things wrap up with a fairly good offscreen game of The Great Austrian Game. Pain and Glory (2019) and Jojo Rabbit (2019) are still in town and will be discussed somewhat next week. See you at that (cool) party, Richter.
