Re: Arnold Schwarzenegger - The Last Stand

My problem with the poster is his arms and the gun. His arms are too short as hands come down to mid-thigh on almost any person. The gun looks like it was pasted onto his hand. He is not holding it.

Yeah, the arms stuck out as an oddity to me too. It also looks like his badge is upside down.

Any Arnie movie is a good Arnie movie. I'm sure I'll enjoy this one. His expressions always crack me up.

Maybe I'm not normal but my hands come to about the same spot.

Even so, if you look at his shoulder his arm "starts" further down.. so they look really short

I feel like Arnold has always been sort of strangely proportioned. I seem to recall watching one of the 'Terminator' films recently and commenting that his torso seemed too short for his body.

Yeah, it becomes apparent now that he doesn't have huge muscles anymore.

And his shoulders are sacking and I believe since a ski accident he walks a bit weirdly, so he looks pretty old in some shots.

At some point in the past, he won the Guinness record for being the most perfectly proportioned man. The word always in your sentence doesn't work.

Re: Arnold Schwarzenegger - The Last Stand

I showed a friend this on IMDB over the weekend. He had no idea it was forth coming and he liked what he saw. He doesn't stalk news outlets so it had glossed him by. He's one of those film goers that unless I tell him of something I think he'll have interest he's not likely to hear about unless he sees a TV ad the week before.

I do like the line: "I'm the sheriff"

There's also a prison movie in the works starring Stallone and Schwarzenegger. (I don't know what it means that I can spell that off the top of my head without looking it up or needing spell-check which DOES recognize a misspelling of it.)
