Terminator vs Rambo or whatever two characters you want to pick from their arsenal.

But which was the better movie star? Whose films did you enjoy more? If you had to sit through a film retrospective of one of them, which would it be?

Another poll coming up soon, or to put it another way...I'll be back.

Arnie is the greatest......You can replace Stallone in any film but Arnie is not replaceable...

Schwarzenegger beats an invincible Alien in Predator and you almost believe it...

Arnie is a one off..

I went for Sly as his films have more variety.

ARnie plays Arnie whereas Sly has really tried to do different roles for the large part of his career.

Personally, I feel that Sly is one of the most underated actors of all time. Yes I just did say that!

It surely has to be Sylvester Stallone who has actually had some roles where he's been quite good, Rocky comes to mind where part of Schwarzenegger's charm and appeal is that he's pretty awful.

As much as I love the rocky series Stallone wasn't Terminator and judgement day is one of the greatest movies ever, ergo my vote lies with Austrias finest

Rocky was awesome and better than any Arnie film, imo but Arnie has made quite a few very good, switch your brain off films. Also, Stallone's comedies like 'Stop Or My Mom Will Shoot' and 'Oscar were terrible, whereas Arnie has made a couple of decent comedy/light hearted filsm like Twins and Kindergarten Cop.

Stallone films I like:

Rocky - Rocky IV
Cliffhanger
First Blood
Over The Top

Arnie's

Terminator 1 & 2
Predator
Commando
Twins
Kindergaten Cop
True Lies
The Running Man

My vote goes to Arnie.

Sly gets my vote. He was more versatile, and he did write the Rocky screenplay...

I'm offended anyone would compare the two let alone vote for Sly over Arnie! And I like Sly! Especially Rocky and Demolition Man!

Arnie is the GOAT of action films.

Absolutely..............Arnie is irreplaceable.......You can't imagine Sly in Raw deal, Commando, Predator or Terminator!!

He's a one off...........I imagine Willis could do most of Stallones as could Arnie himself.

One great film Sly did though that is unheralded...........

Wasn't Stallone down to play John McLaine in Die Hard? That would have been a magnificent fail.

Sly is an actor who has done mostly action films. Arnie is a former bodybuilder turned actor whose bad technique & thick accent left us wanting more.

I have lots of both their films on DVD (thankfully not The Last Action Hero or Cobra) but for sheer enjoyment and fun, it's the Austrian Oak for me. Plus Sly's more recent plastic surgery is more scary.

And Bullet to the Head was far, far worse than The Last Stand. censored

This is terrible. For me, it's the same as asking a father which of his two kids he loves more!

Can never pick between them, two of my childhood heroes. Ok, I'll admit, I still bloody love 'em now.

Call it a draw and let's be done with it.

I voted for Stallone, Arnie is 100% wood in every film I've seen him in.

Stallone films I like:

The Expendables
Cliffhanger
All Rocky films
All Rambo films

Arnie films I like:

Predator
Commando
The Running Man

And I only really like Predator because of Billy and Jessie Ventura.

Arnie on sheer screen presence alone. As good as the stories for the first 2 Terminators are, they both needed Arnie to make them great. His lack of acting skills probably help a great deal with that too.

Rather than discuss your comment - or quantify it in any way, or reveal how it actually adds to the discussion - your immediate reaction is to tell someone else to 'grow up'. Hilarious Laugh

Why not enlighten us all as to why box office takings matter one iota in this discussion? I'd be interested to know personally.

No fighting in the war room folks.

Come on ladies, things have been going so well in the movie section - its been a revelation recently.

Can't we all just get along and save the fighting for our own sections and not the communal ones Laugh

I asked you to quantify one of your comments, as you're unable to tell us how box office taking impact on the topic in question, I'll have to assume they don't and move on.

Thank you for the insult though, very mature.

And Adam, there's no fighting going on, I only asked for an elaboration on an existing comment Smile

Okay, I forgot Arnie was Conan. But he says about 4 words in each film, so they can't really count.

Movie Battles #4 - Arnie vs Sly Empty Arnie Or Sly?

Post by Shot 21 LCFC Thu 16 May 2013, 10:14 am

I always think of these 2 in the same vein. Mainly because they are 2 of the best and most iconic action stars from the 80s onward. So I would just like to know which one you prefer?

Is it Arnold Schwarzenegger? Star of films such as The Terminator, Conan The Barbarian, Total Recall, The Eraser, Twins and True Lies.

Or is it Sylvester Stallone? Star of films such as Rocky, First Blood, Demolition Man, Tango & Cash, Escape To Victory and Detox.

Put in your votes!!

Stallone for me. Neither of them are getting mistaken for Brando anytime soon but at least in the likes of Copland and Rocky Stallone showed some level of acting ability.

I think Stallone can portray a greater range of emotions, whereas Arnie is more of a "one size fits all" kind of actor. They've both done some great movies and some not so great, but I'd pick Stallone - just.

Looks like there was a thread about it then Laugh great minds think alike!!

For the record as much as I love Schwarzenegger, I must say I prefer Stallone. I also agree with Adam D about Stallone being a very underrated actor.

On a side note, I once heard that these 2 were due to appear as the main 2 characters in Face Off. For some reason or other they couldnt make it, so the roles went to John Travolta and Nicholas Cage. Not sure how true that is though!!

For every "Cobra" and "Detox" there's "Eraser", "Raw Deal" and "End of Days"

Preferred Demolition Man to Last Action Hero (their two comedic self deprecating movies) and I lean towards Stallone overall but it's definitely a hair's breadth between the two

Wanna flip the top off your skull, stick in the fridge for two hours and watch some top notch action movie? You can't go wrong with either guy?

Arnie's 'comedy' type films have been better. Twins and Kindergarton Cop were decent but Stallone's 'Stop Or My Mom Will Shoot' and 'Oscar' were terrible.
