No. And they aren't good actors. If you like action movies....there are better actors.

Yes.

Arnie made a few keepers. Sly, not so much.

#7 Edited by Aljosa23 (24850 posts) -

They're pretty cool but Arnold has been in much better films.

Watch Stallon in the first Rocky movie and Copland. The dude can act. Hell, he's great in Rambo. Nothing is over.

Also Arnie (while has little to no range) is great and perfectly cast in many great roles.

Both are legends. However purely on Rocky, I'd had to go with Stallon.

I like them both. My boy is Stallone, Rocky and Rambo are two enduring series. Rocky is one of my favorite movies ever.

Arnie is irreplaceable, Stalone is not.

#18 Posted by undergroundLPx (641 posts) -

I like and respect both as actors but I prefer Schwarzenegger at this point. He is more lively than Sylvester at this point, Sylvester has a sleepy / boring vibe to him.

#19 Edited by johnd13 (8077 posts) -

Not really a fan of those two.

#20 Posted by Korvus (3545 posts) -

Neither, I find their movies mostly boring, and yes, I'm one of the few people who didn't care for Terminator. I think both actors are overestimated.

Arnold Schwarzenegger is one in a fucking billion

That's like asking whether you like HGH or Nandralone

Arnold has never denied using steroids during the 70's (probably late 60's too). They weren't illegal then and the steroids they had back then are nothing compared to what we have now. I'm not even sure if they knew how bad they were for your body back in the 70's (I'm sure they had some idea).

TBH I think competitive bodybuilding has become a complete freakshow.

#24 Posted by Fezzinator101 (228 posts) -

I like both actors. But I prefer Arine's movies much more.

#25 Posted by Ariabed (1103 posts) -

Yes

#26 Posted by one_plum (6350 posts) -

Stallone is the (slightly) better actor, but Arnold is more legendary/quotable.

I'm not necessarily against steroids. Like most substances, I don't believe they're bad for your body unless they're abused.

They've both done great movies (and bad ones). I think Schwarzenegger edges out though, Stallone's career really slowed down from the mid-90s onward while Schwarzenegger's stayed alive until he became governor. Then again, Stallone did porn, hard to say. Anyhow, love it when they're reference each other in their films...

#29 Edited by uninspiredcup (8317 posts) -

I just image googled Stallon + Porn.It was a bad idea.

To be fair though, after reading about it, he was near enough homeless at the time. Also it was apparently just a softcore movie that could easily be shown on terrestrial tv, recut (with fake scenes) and remarked when he become famous. Interesting though.

#30 Posted by ShadowsDemon (10127 posts) -

The Terminator films are good, but otherwise I don't like either of 'em.

#31 Posted by thehig1 (1713 posts) -

I like them both, Arnold is one of my favorite actors of all time too due some brillaint films he was in in the 80s and 90s

Predator

Running Man

Terminator

Terminator 2

Commando

Total Recall

True Lies

End Of Days

The Sixth Day

All those films are Arnold Classics.

Stallone for Rocky alone. A much better actor than Arnold.

This topic disappoints me. Stallone is da man. I like them both but out of the two Stallone is my favorite. I loved all of Rocky movies.

I've seen it and love it. Rocky I-IV are masterpieces.

I'm just a bigger Arnold fan. I was a child of the 80's and when I grew up no one was cooler than Arnie.

Arnold's Holy Trinity:

Conan the Barbarian (sequel is one of his worst films)

Total Recall

Predator

#41 Edited by magicalclick (22560 posts) -

Arnold is my role model. He becomes a super star, a governor, from a body builder who barely speak English. The best example of American dream come true as immigrant. And he discouraged Prop8 and help against Prop8 in the federal court.

I have. But, First Blood is my favorite Stallone movie.

Overall, I like sci-fi movies and those by Arnie seem better.

Predator

The Running Man

Total Recall

The Terminator movies

Yah Arnold's got a bunch of awesome movies (Predator, True Lies, Terminator, Total Recall, etc), Stallone's got some good stuff too.

#49 Posted by sukraj (22608 posts) -

I like both of them.
