Terminator 2: Poster giveaway

  1. My favorite action movie of all time is the original Die Hard. Though the Terminator series is not far behind :).

  2. Terminator 2 will forever remain a favorite as it was the first R-rated movie I ever saw as a kid. My all-time favorite, though, is John Woo’s masterpiece, The Killer.

  3. sweet print prob my fav one of ur!! welll maybe Thing is still tops for me :)

    Who Am I Jackie Chan awesome stunts

  4. Really cool man..

    Ill echo Christian on that call.. BY FAR, Point Break is my fav action movie.. so damn cool

  5. Wow favourite action film ever. Tricky one to answer as there are so many great films out there. I suppose the one I go back to is the first Indiana Jones.

    As a kid in the 80’s there was always a situation where my friends and I would play the good guys versus the bad guys. Spielberg brought that kind of children’s imagination to the big screen in the form of Indy fighting the Nazis. He wasn’t necessarily the perfect hero as he had his flaws but that’s what endeared him to us. And he was named after the dog.

    Indy wins hands down.

  6. Really hard to narrow it down but in terms of a straight fun non-stop action flick I am going to go with Rumble in the Bronx (first Jackie Chan movie I seen lol)

  7. Well if you’re talking favorite besides T2 (which is for sure my favorite) then I’d have to go with another Arnold flick and say True Lies. So many great lines and ridiculously fun scenes.

  8. Terminator 2 has, and likely will always be my favourite action movie of all time. Robert Patrick used to haunt my nightmares, chasing me with those chrome hooks of his. I still play it in the background every couple months while I’m working.

  9. yo james ..you need to make a predator poster man thats my favorite action movie ….you know iam right

  10. “I need your clothes, your boots and your motorcycle.”

    Just like some of the other gents in this comment post, my favourite action movie hands down is Terminator 2. It’s the one movie that I own three different formats of (VHS+VHS Special edition, DVD, Blu-Ray). I have my Dad to thank for introducing it to me at such a young age. Anyone else still cringe at the security guard eye poke scene?

    P.S. Brad Fiedel composed a FANTASTIC score!

  11. Favorite action film!? That is tough… Currently I would have to say Delta Force. Friggin love Chuck Norris.

    FYI – The only thing more awesome than this poster is Chuck Norris.

  12. Amazing job as always.
    My favourite action movie of all time has to be ‘Point Break’

    “Vaya con Dios, Brah” – Johnny Utah :D

  13. Excellent stuff as always James! I so want one of these!

    My favourite action film is probably Commando but I feel like I’m cheating on Die Hard, Tango & Cash, Cobra, Man on Fire, Punisher, Lethal Weapon, Robocop, Running Man, Bloodsport,Universal Soldier, Under Siege & of course Terminator!

  14. Great giveaway, the poster looks great. It’s nearly impossible for me to select a “favorite”, but for a time I used to say Demolition Man was my favorite. I could watch that movie over and over again and never get sick of it.

  15. The Terminator franchise is my favorite action movies, namely, Salvation. I think T2 pretty much captures the franchise in general.

  16. Hi James, good idea. I compiled a list of my all time favorite action movies and used a random number generator to pick the winner. It turned out to be Heat, by Michael Mann. I totally agree!

  17. Love the print James. My guilty action movie pleasure is Predator 2. Such a great merger of action/gore/cheesiness.

  18. Tough one!
    Dont know if my judgement is based on me beeing 4 years old when it came, or if it actually is a good movie, but im going with Demolition Man from 1993 with Sylvester Stallone and Wesley Snipes!

  19. T2 is a legendary film but my fave has to be Predator just for the sheer quantity and quality of 1 liners!

  20. I would have to say Jackie Chan’s Mr. Nice Guy. But Double Team with Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dennis Rodman scores pretty high on the action scale to.

  21. Any Schwarzenegger movie will do, but if I have to choose, it would be Total Recall. Although the new Expendables 2 movie is sick like hell.

  22. The Bourne Ultimatum, hands down. The whole trilogy is insanely good, but out of the three, this one is the strongest.

  23. I’d LOVE some Signalnoise goodness on my walls. My favorite action movie? Tough call. The Transporter series is fun, there’s also The Expandables, Tropic Thunder…

  24. Has to be the original Die Hard. Too many great scenes, too many classic quotes, too much Hans Gruber to let anything else take its place.

  25. Layer cake with Daniel Craig and sienna miller!
    Bombastic Soundtrack and an awesome Story :)
    And … Driver :)

  26. Terminator 2 is the greatest action movie of all time. Hands down. I saw it 7 times in the theater and have owned it in every incarnation since. This one set the bar so high nothing has even come close to touching it 20 years later. Long live T2.

  27. Awesome work!
    Favourite action film has to be the Arnie classic Commando. Awful dialog full of terrible one liners with acting to match, farcical story, campest bad guy ever…. oh and a backwards firing rocket launcher.

  28. RoboCop for sure. Although the action scenes are great, the non-action elements make it a classic. Dark humor commentary on a bleak near future, which like any good science fiction, reveals itself to be tragically accurate over time.

    Honorable mention to the Incredibles, which in my opinion is a top-shelf action film which just happens to be family-friendly animation. Dizzying, perfectly-paced fight scenes from start to finish.

  29. I’m such a fan of your work, you always Pick the best films to create posters for.

    Hmmmm fave action film is tricky.. I love drive but I also love big trouble in little china!

  30. Awesome poster. Reminds me a lot of the Gameboy cleaning kit (the 80’s one).

    Fav action movie: Gone in 60 seconds. No idea id it’s consideren an action filn, but i like it.

    Bonus film: Street Kings (with keanu). Many seem to hate this one though!

    Good luck everyone ;)

  31. Awesome work.
    I don’t really do favourites, though if put on the spot (today) I’d say either Preadator or Aliens.
    P.s. you should totally work up the poster of the t-800 hand/arm.

  32. The Warriors, as a kid born in ’93 living in the middle of a council estate in Salford, seeing what NYC was like in the 70’s was eye openly cool!

  33. Hey James!
    good luck in this giveaway! started school now, soo keep up the good work!!

    Mine would be “sherlock holmes a game of shadows” just simply because of the slow motion!! simply epic!

  34. The Thing was always a fave. I love flicks where you just know there is more to the story, but the writers/studios just dont give you what you want to know. Leave it to the imagination, who needs sequels.

    Funny, saying all that on a post about a poster for a sequel.. Great art, regardless.

  35. I know its probably overused but I would have to say my favorite action movie would have to be Die Hard. I mean not only did bruce willis have awesome hair he also had a great sense of sarcasm. So good

  36. If we are able to include recent action film, I would have to say Dark Knight, hands down.

    If we are going on classics alone, I would have to go with Mad Max

  37. Conan The Barbarian – “Crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of the women.” GOLD.

  38. Nice work! T2 is absolutely my favorite action movie. If I had to pick another one, I’d go with The Matrix.

  39. That’s One Badass Print, Did everyone forget Enter the Dragon with the best fighter of all-time Bruce Lee ?

  40. Great print, James!

    My fave action film is probably Hard Boiled…can’t beat the toothpick and double pistol action! Tony Leung and Chow Yun Fat are too cool for skool…its 90s action cinema at its best. Endlessly rewatchable too.

  41. There’s a lot to think of, but 1st one comes to mind still has a soft spot for me would be The Crow.

  42. Is THE LAST OF THE MOHICANS an action movie? Sort of. If it is, then it’s my favorite. If not, then FIRST BLOOD. Which makes it all the worse that I don’t have your FIRST BLOOD poster.

  43. Amazing work as always, James. Like many of the comments above, T2 is actually my favorite film of all time, action or not. So, to give a different favorite action film… The Dark Knight

  44. Fantastic! My favourite is definitely Mad Max. Not sure why, I guess it comes down to a love of cars and the apocalypse. Thanks for the giveaway!

  45. Easiest choice of all and the best is Pee-Wee,s Big Adventure for me.All action packed to the gills and then… Mad Max is the other one that gives it a run for it,s money.

  46. Are you FREAKING kidding me?! My head almost can’t contain the awesome presented by this giveaway. My favorite action movie has recently changed to Haywire with Gina Carano. Underrated movie indeed.

  47. Gonna have to go with Aliens. I actually liked the first one a little more, but I wasn’t sure if it would qualify as an “action” movie as much as the second one.

  48. That is beautiful!

    Tough choice – True Lies is up there with T2, Die Hard and Raiders of the Lost Ark…

    I’ll go for True Lies :)

  49. Will have to go with Heat tough choice as so many but got to love De Niro / Pachino. Amazing work again James!

  50. such a tough one! my favorite action movie changes about once a month – Die Hard, Predator, Aliens, Total Recall. My current favorite is a film that has recently been changed in my eyes. Robocop. I have seen this on TV and DVD so many times, I have lost count. it was also one of the first 18 rated films i saw as a kid. This film took on new meaning after seeing it in the cinema recently on an original print. Extremely visceral, violent, and uber satirical all at the same time, I think I finally got it as an adult movie at the age of 33. a piece of genius. GO and see this in the cinema if you have the chance, you won’t regret it.

  51. Escape from L.A.

    It doesn’t pretend to be a masterpiece, it’s just a semi-over the top look into the future :D

  52. Most of the 80’s action flicks are a single blur for me (“Commando2, “Cobra”, all that nonsense), so I think it is actually T2, if we’re thinking “straight” action films. But the absolute best for me is “Hot Fuzz”.

  53. Its hard to say. So many great films I’ve seen over the years.
    Saw tons of actions movies through my dad. Saw all the classics.
    Absolutely loved the Terminator movies because Arnold was a badass.
    Over the years, seen a couple that were awesome. But recently I saw The Raid Redemption and it really blew my mind!! Great action, good soundtrack to match the fast paced action!! So The Raid is my favorite action movie at the moment.

  54. My favorite action movie is Con Air. The cast of character actors in the movie on top of the ridiculous plot line make it just an awesomely fun action movie.

  55. Man that is tough. It fluctuates. Right now it’s The Raid: Redemption. Seriously, see it. Old school I gotta go with Die Hard. I never get tired of that movie.

  56. Thanks for the chance! Great work, btw…

    Fave Action Movie – impossible to narrow it to just one, but Heat is right up there!

  57. Favourite action movie of all time for me will be John Woo’s A Better Tomorrow II and followed by his US best film, Face/Off.

  58. Wow, awesome artwork!
    Though cliche I’d probably have to go with Total Recall… although I’m not ashamed to admit I do love a bit of Steven Seagal. All about the classic quote from Under Siege 2 “NOBODY BEATS ME IN THE KITCHEN!” x

  59. Favorite action film? That’s tough. Equilibrium is good. I’m a big fan of martial arts action films… Iron Monkey, Ong Bak, or maybe Bruce Lee’s Enter the Dragon. I can’t really pick one favorite…

  60. I would have to bring the realism back to the fold and say that my fav action movie is Saving Private Ryan.
    It doesn’t have aliens or a Terminator or a man in a white vest with no shoes, but it has an opening half hour that shellshocks me overtime i watch it.

  61. Great work James, excellent giveaway! Favorite action movie… Reservoir Dogs. Cheers from Argentina!!!

  62. No one else likes this movie but I’m going to have to go with Waterworld. Ahhh yeaaah cult classics. Although Star Wars is also pretty damn amazing.

  63. Amazing giveaway man, thanks for the opportunity!

    My favourite action movie of all time is Die Hard: With a Vengeance. No question.

  64. Tanks for this contest, realy amazing poster.

    For my favourite action film, it’s a very question but I want to say Die Hard: With a Vengeance, it’s probably my favourite.

    Thanks.

  65. Awesome work James, truly something to cherish!
    My favourite action movie would be.. Hmmm.. Maybe something a little different… James Bond – Casino Royale (Craig version)

  66. Most impacting was The Matrix but I was a lifelong fan of the entire James Bond series. There are amazing action sequences in Ip Man & some of the korean revenge films like I Saw The Devil & The Man From Nowhere. Best Arnold Film had to be True Lies.

    Too hard to nail it down to just one!

  67. Amazing work James! Id have to say my favourite movie is between the Alien movies and Close Encounters of the Third Kind or Predator. Then theres the Alfred Hitchcock movies! Theres wayy too many movies to pick a fav haha.

  68. I would have no problem making a huge list of all my favorites, but if I have to pick only one, it’d have to be The Rocketeer.

    I’ve been obsessed with that movie since I was a kid. I used to jump down the stairs of my parents house pretending I was Cliff Secord and my backpack was my rocket.

  69. To be truthful, Terminator 2 probably IS my favorite action film. Can’t beat Schwarzenegger. But for the sake of switching it up, I’ll go with They Live. Carpenter is awfully hard to top.

  70. Yo man! Love your stuff to death. Loved meeting you at DCAF a few weeks ago.

    Favourite action movie? Hard to say, Drive is up there if it counts. But I’m also fond of The Indiana Jones franchise.
