True lies is number one for me but Tom Arnold steals many scenes with the best comedy lines. A toss up between the Original Terminator, Predator and Kindergarten Cop for second.

Kindergarten Cop when he busts up the drug party looking for Cindy the witness and the guy says "who are you man? Arnold's character replies "I'm the party pooper", classic.

Can´t say I have ever seen a "good" Schwarzenegger movie. The Terminator movies are probably the least bad ones. But he´s cool nonetheless

I like Bill Hader's impressions of Arnold. A lot of people do that voice but he gets me laughing the hardest.
I'm old enough to remember when Arnold was competing in shows as Arnold Strong.
He was sure that he had no chance of becoming famous as Schwarzenegger.
But he's taken it to the point where auto complete and spell check have got it locked in.
Arnold, you made it. You and Mellencamp and Zellweger and all the rest.

Commando.

The very first movie we rented on VHS in 1986. My late mother, who was from Vietnam- always referred to Arnold as "Commando" from that point on no matter what. She would unironically call him that even when he was Governor of California. At least once a year I try to watch it- no matter how silly it is- it is still great.

I have a soft spot for Kindergarten Cop, but that goes beyond the movie.

Predator for me.

Not to jack this thread, but I think it's interesting the late Bill Paxton was involved in each of the three biggest sci-fy action franchises:

Terminator 1 = young Punk leader
Aliens = Private Hudson
Predator 2 = Officer Jerry Lambert
