    Stuck at home watching movies, caught myself changing channels between Rambo (1st reboot) and Total Recall.
    Poses the question: stuck at home with only one complete movie catalog to choose from, who do you watch?

    Just off the top of my head,

    Rambo series
    Rocky series (including Creeds)
    Daylight
    Stop or my mom will shoot
    Assassin
    Tango and cash
    Demolition man
    Cliffhanger
    Cobra
    Judge dredd
    Escape plan
    Rhinestone

    Vs

    Terminator series
    Predator
    True lies
    Total recall
    Eraser
    Last stand
    Last action hero
    Commando
    Jingle all the way
    Kindergarten cop
    6th day
    Conan
    Running man
    Twins
    Red sonja

    There are more films from both actors that I didnt mention.
    I would consider the Expendables franchise to be a Stallone film even though Arnie is in them

    #2 80 days ago

    This was easy one for me.
    Good poll on a slow Sunday.

    #3 80 days ago

    I’m going to say Stallone. I just watched the first and last Rambo movies quite good. Also Stallone in Lords of Flatbush.

    The Rock has them both beat tho.

    #4 80 days ago

    Both are great!! Tough one but i picked Arnold! Terminator series is amazing and one of my favorites!

    #5 80 days ago

    They are both great, and overall I think Stallone has the edge. But neither of them can compare to Clint Eastwood.

    #6 80 days ago

    Rocky series, Rambo series, Cliffhanger.....Stallone by a nose....

    #7 80 days ago

    Gonna have to go with Stallone. I think Arnold has more overall 'hits' but the highs of Stallone's catalog far outweigh Arnold's.

    #8 80 days ago

    What about Over the Top for Stallone?

    #9 80 days ago

    Both have good series and some “WTH was that” movies.

    If it was literally desert island choice (one actor’s movies or the other only), I have to go with Arnold so I can have access to Predator, Terminator and Conan.

    #10 80 days ago

    Stallone. Recently watched last blood and it was quite good. 2nd best in the Rambo series for me after 1st blood

    #11 80 days ago

    I like them both, and I really like how they take jabs at each other in their movies. I don’t remember which Arnold movie it was (Twins?) where he walked by a Rocky poster and chuckled. In Demolition Man, Stallone cracks up and makes some comment when Bullock tells him about the Schwarzenegger presidential library.

    Overall, Arnold’s catalog is overall more entertaining to me, but Stallone is more epic and memorable with Rocky and Rambo series.

    #12 80 days ago

    The true answer is Nic Cage

    For Arnold you need to add Raw Deal, End of Days, Red Heat.

    #14 80 days ago

    It’s close but I’m going to have to go with Arnold. I just think his blockbusters have had a greater following/impact compared to Stallone’s. However, none of them can top the original Rocky. It’s a really close call between the two of them. Nice poll!

    #15 80 days ago

    gotta go with sly. he's made a comeback in recent years (apollo, rambo, the prison escaple movie with arnold) where arnold has had one bomb after another (other than the movie with sly). i like arnold and all, but like terminator movies..its over.

    #16 80 days ago

    Going Arnold. The only Sly movie in that list that I care about is Demo Man. (We could really use the 3 seashells right now)

    #17 80 days ago

    Don’t forget Arnold in Pumping Iron. I love that documentary

    #18 80 days ago

    I like both but Stallone has the edge. Remember, he doesn't just act(?) in his movies. He has a big hand behind the scenes as well

    Arnold!

    There are some rocky freaks who will sway the polls but be realistic, there’s only one great rocky movie and a couple
    More entertaining ones.

    Arnold just has more charm. And terminator / t2 / total recall seals it.

    #20 80 days ago

    Charles Bronson

    Quoted from Mr_Tantrum:

    And Pumping Iron.

    #22 80 days ago

    I'm going to have to go with Arnold even though Stallone has been killing it recently really enjoyed Last Blood.

    #23 80 days ago

    Its really Terminator/Predator versus Rocky/Rambo.....tough choice...coin flip in my book

    #24 80 days ago
    Quoted from o-din:

    And Pumping Iron.[quoted image]

    beat you to it

    #25 80 days ago

    Left out this one too.

    Total recall seals the deal. It’s better than demolition man (which is a pretty fun movie but doesn’t reach that first tier).

    #29 80 days ago

    I'm going with Arnold!

    #30 80 days ago

    Gotta go with Arnold. The thick accent, the bad acting, the over the top action, the one liners - the guy has it all. Heck, he was even the governator. I would take a T2 over DM any day of the week and would be all for another Arnold pin of any sort. A Total Recall pin with new callouts from Arnold would be pretty sweet.

    #31 80 days ago

    Stallone.

    #32 80 days ago

    Arnold played Mr Freeze in one of the Batman movies .
    “Cool party!”
    “Chill out”

    #34 80 days ago

    I thought it would be closer.

    Maybe the rocky freaks haven’t gotten wind of this poll yet!

    #35 80 days ago

    This is tuff but I give the edge to Stallone.

    #36 80 days ago

    It's like asking what tastes better....Coke or Pepsi?

    #37 80 days ago

    And the answer is.... You guessed it, Frank Stallone!

    #38 79 days ago

    Stallone was great in T2.

    #39 79 days ago

    This is like Medieval Madness Vs. Attack from Mars. At first glance both are very similar but if you really spent time to look there are significant differences. They are iconic for their generation. They have highly devoted fans, that likely appreciate both but have a strong opinion favoring one over the other.

    I choose MM and Arnold!

    Maurizio

    This is why I voted Sly, writing "Rocky" put him over the top for me (no pun intended)

    Quoted from jawjaw:

    And this is why I may be wrong to vote Stallone. Arnold's movies are just more fun.
    Arnold's movies seem to be full of better special effects than Stallone's
    Im a bit shocked that the poll is not closer but it looks like Arnie is running away with it.

    Easy answer... Dr. Pepper! (which, FYI, was actually created BEFORE coca-cola).

    the answer is on "their" pins list...

    #45 77 days ago

    Arnold by a hair. I like Stallone but Arnold's films I find myself watching more than Sly's. Do I ever need to see Stop or My Mom Will Shoot, or Cliffhanger again?

    No, but I sure as hell will watch The Running Man and End of Days because Arnold is entertaining has well. Plus Conan, Terminator, Total Recall, and especially Predator are all perfect films. Having said that, First Blood, Rocky III and Rambo IV are damn near perfect.

    And a big nod to The Last Action Hero & Demolition Man, the most underrated of all their films.

    #46 77 days ago
    Quoted from riggy469:

    The true answer is Nic Cage[quoted image]

    the only correct answer

    #47 77 days ago

    Both are amazing and made so many iconic films of my youth. I even enjoy laughing at their stinkers. But I'm going to give the win to Stallone. I think he has had the overall better career. Plus, Stallone wrote and directed several of his films, which is pretty amazing. And I have a soft spot for some of Stallone's lesser films like Oscar and Tango and Cash.

    #48 77 days ago

    the one that speaks English.....well,... better.
    yo Adrian.

    #49 77 days ago

    Arnold without any doubt.

    #50 77 days ago

    Thats a very tough decision. I went Stallone but I would have said equal.
