Posted in Top 5 Movies with tags , on March 26, 2011 by Kaiderman

While these Top 5 Lists have typically been reserved for actors who aren’t necessarily on the same level of celebrity as Arnie, I had to do this in honor of the fact that the Gubbenator has announced he is returning to acting. He has informed his agents at CAA to officially start listening to film offers and even said he has a passion project about a German officer sent to kill a group of kids in WWII (who ends up saving them).

Arnie is all about the cheese and we love him for it… that and the fact that his accent hasn’t changed at all in the 4 decades he’s lived in the states… so, let’s honor him by discussing his Top 5 Films. Here are mine:

5. THE RUNNING MAN.

Anyone can bring you a list of the Top 5 Brad Pitt films. We here at THE LIST like to spend a little time with the other awesome actors in Hollywood. Like the certifiably bat shit insane Gary Busey. Funny thing is, at one time, he was a pretty damn good actor. Want proof? Then check out what I consider to be his Top 5 films. Before we jump in, a couple quick mentions:

EXCLUSIONS: While he was great in it, I’m excluding Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas because his part is so small that I’m not sure I’d call it a “Busey film”.

HONORABLE MENTION: Okay, I’ve never seen the film but, according to IMDB, Busey played the part of Blind Master in a film called The Hand Job in 2005. That is too funny. I had to mention it!

So, let’s jump in. Here’s my Top 5 (in order):

5. BIG WEDNESDAY.

Who has 2 thumbs and knew that Busey did 2 awesome surf films? This guy right here. If you haven’t seen this film, do yourself a favor. It’s arguably the greatest surf film ever made outside of Endless Summer. Continue reading
