Whether or not one agrees with his politics or enjoy his films, everyone can benefit from taking a little time from their day and take in some choice bon mots from the former Mr. Universe.
Or 160 of them. You have to appreciate fan made YouTube compilations, because it’s pretty much the only way you’d ever get something like this. If one were to go through a more “official” channel, the best they’d probably do is a special feature on a DVD that collects quotes from the movie it features. Too many studios own the rights to these different clips to make anyone want to undertake the legal loopholes to produce this. So let us thank our lucky stars that there is a venue for something like this.
It makes you wonder, however, what the editor has to gain. Obviously a lot of time was spent on this, but is there profit to be made? Even if it were a part of someones editing portfolio, is a movie clip compilation something a production company would want to see? Or could it be that this person just loves Arnold’s work so much that he felt compelled to make this shrine? You be the judge.
Regardless, the editor’s work is our personal gain.
It wouldn’t have hurt to have included this little nugget, though:
