    Is it me or are these 2 legends constantly trying to subtly one-up each other here? Watch the body language and listen to what they're actually saying. Seems like Sly is a lil insecure here and Ahnold is still the Alpha dog.

    Good interview. In terms of their overall accomplishments, Arnold is tough to beat.

    Turning on the subtitles and watching YT try to translate them was great.

    If these two ego maniacs could've put their bullshit aside o what 20 years ago we could've had many epic movies where they costarred with each other.

    Didn't get that subtext here at all. They're agreeing with each other over and over.

    Nah none of that makes it close. Once you start adding in Arnolds ability to mix comedy with action it's just not even a competition. Were talking about Arnold here.

    Sly was funny in Tango and Cash (although Kurt Russell was really the funny man there) and Demolition Man.

    I love Arnie too and would probably give him the nod, but Sly is right there with him. Plus Sly gets extra points for being able to act dramatically (Cop Land, First Blood, and Rocky).

    Those bolded are the only films that could possibly stack up.

    Over the Top was about fucking arm wrestling.

    haha, it's still a classic. And First Blood is in a different league than the rest of the Rambo's which is why I separated it. Also, Cop Land was the shit. Underrated movie. Same with Victory.

    And if you get Kindergarten Cop and Jingle All the Way, then I get Tango and Cash.

    That was just the surface, homie.
    Over the Top was a tour de force that showcased the everlasting bond between a father and son.

    I feel Arnold was the better actor. I didn't like cop land to much the movie was a little boring but the ending was good. I do love that arm wrestling movie though props to anyone who can make a kid think arm wrestling is cool. That special grip he would at the end I still crack up remembering myself doing it as a kid.

    He was a better action star but only one of them has Oscar nominations. His acting in First Blood and Rocky 1 was better than anything Arnie could ever do.

    I loved Cop Land. Great cast and it was taken place in what looked like my neighborhood at the time. It was also right around the same time as the Sopranos which is my GOAT HBO show. Was a good time to be from Jersey. Before Me and Mah Boys and the Jersey Shore. Everything was mafia related.
