"To be....or not to be?"

One of my favorite scenes from the highly underrated Last Action Hero from 1993.

Arnold Schwarzenegger made this Shane Black script which was a sendup of all the action movies of the era. The movie within a movie format can work if it's done well, and it's never been done more ingeniously than here. Never understood why it wasn't a bigger hit. It was certainly a far better movie than Schwarzenegger's True Lies, which was a huge success.
