Just one sad fact that life is not fair



We all know well that life is not fair so no one has to remind you of that. The numerous reasons for it, but on this occasion I will point out just one.



In the second part of the "Terminator" Arnold Schwarzenegger speaks only 700 words. In this movie he earned 15 million dollars. That means that for "ASTA la Vista, Baby" he got 85,716 dollars.

Happy weekend!

Re: Just one sad fact that life is not fair

Personally I think that was fair. As a younger Chemmie, that movie was entertaining, amusing, funny, touching and action packed. It was a major step in the movie industry for CGI and Arnold character was key.
Can you put a price on one specific item? There are people who make much for doing some far more boring and definitely not timeless.

Just for argument sake :P

You got me there. I have to admit.

Although, for me the crucial moment was when Arnold lit his cigar with a dynamite in the "Big Gun" AC/DC video I think he should earn 90k just for doing this:

In Italian there is a saying "Who has bread, doesn't have teeth"

They use it in the Veneto region. I think it is similar to yours.

I've heard it, mine means that some people are able to do things others can't so the only thing left for them to do is clap or ignore it.
Anyhoo this was an OK movie, made me laugh

I wonder how much he got paid to say "It's not a tumor"
