Anyone seen it?
Just watched it now, an oldie but a real classic. Have to say, i much prefer how body builders looked back then to how they do now.
Plus, Arnold's mind games are just hilarious!
Yes. And I agree with you.

the lack of proportionate quad/ham development always bothered me. 90s were the best era IMO.
Always thought serge looked freaky in PI
Always fun when you train with a few people who have seen it and can just throw out random quotes.
" You, you got arms. He got spaghetti arms compared to you"
"You gotta make the judges make a comparison. They ain't never seen your arms before."
"He only got 1 pose. And that one he just looks like a big crab."
The stuff about the pumping and the coming never really did it for me. Now when Arnold makes up the story about his dad dying and not going to the funeral, then trying not to laugh while telling it is gold.

I definitely think the aesthetic is better than today's BB'ers
I loved that movie, Arnold was / is awesome. A good portion of the stuff that happened / he said was just for the movie, but the spirit of training and body-building is there.
In one of his interviews Arnold said that Lou was supposed to be the big bad guy but when it didn't look like he would take Mr. Olympia they had Arnold play the part.

The best part to me was Arnold's story of teaching the guy how to pose/yell. Even if he made it up that was hilarious.
