IMO Arnolds best persomance as the terminater and in general.
2. Rocky (1976)

Rocky Balboa, a small-time boxer, gets a supremely rare chance to fight heavy-weight champion Apollo Creed in a bout in which he strives to go the distance for his self-respect.

This is a movie that has got a lot of heart and great acting (on a low budget even). The perfect underdog movie!
3. Terminator 2 (1991)
R | 137 min | Action, Sci-Fi, Thriller
A cyborg, identical to the one who failed to kill Sarah Connor, must now protect her ten year old son, John Connor, from a more advanced cyborg.
Votes: 830,407 | Gross: $204.84M
IMO Arnolds second best performance, and this movie is such a great sequel! A lot of people prefere this to The Terminator, but I feel the acting (on Arnolds behalf) is just a notch better in the first one.
4. First Blood (1982)
R | 93 min | Action, Adventure, Drama
Former Green Beret John Rambo is pursued into the mountains surrounding a small town by a tyrannical sheriff and his deputies, forcing him to survive using his combat skills.

This is a movie that like Rocky has got a lot of heart and message. It's full of action. What makes it lower on the list than Rocky is that you can feel, sylvester is little more at home in his role as Rocky.
5. The Avengers (2012)
PG-13 | 143 min | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
Earth's mightiest heroes must come together and learn to fight as a team if they are going to stop the mischievous Loki and his alien army from enslaving humanity.

This is by far the best superhero movie! It's action packed, and even though it had a lot of potential to fail (it can be difficult to assemble this many characters and succed), it delivered all the way.
6. The Expendables 2 (2012)
R | 103 min | Action, Adventure, Thriller
Mr. Church reunites the Expendables for what should be an easy paycheck, but when one of their men is murdered on the job, their quest for revenge puts them deep in enemy territory and up against an unexpected threat.
Votes: 264,743 | Gross: $85.02M
Kinda like The Avengers this movie assemble most of the really big 80'ies and 90'ies action stars, and instead of becoming the last nail in the coffin for them, it has bettered their careers a lot! The perfect beef cake film.
7. Toy Story 3 (2010)
