He goes by many names: Arnie, Ah-nuld, the Terminator, the Governator, the Austrian Oak, Conan the Republican, the Machine. But however one chooses to acknowledge Arnold Schwarzenegger, one can’t help acknowledging his importance in action movies from the 1980s all the way up to now.What he’s less celebrated for is his dramatic work, the movies that don’t require him to swing around bazookas or machine guns, or to beat down bad guys. Arnold didn’t start out as Arnold, after all; Hollywood didn’t catch on to the awesome might of his charisma until a decade into his film career. It took time for him to become the T-800. In that time, he made gems, and since he’s stopped being the T-800 (insofar as he can ever really stop being the thing that made him a household name), he’s made others.

I’ve always been a binger. I was 26 and had just landed a sweet job editing for one of the weekly city papers that covered the nightlife scene in Columbus, Ohio.
