To my utter surprise, there isn’t a thread like this on here yet, despite the fact we’ve contributed over a hundred posts to specific sorts of films. That’s far too limiting. I like to talk about films I’ve seen. Here is one to start us off.
Needless. Gratuituous. Repeats on previous themes. That’s what people said about Terminator 3 when it was released. Terminator Genisys movie sees Arnold Schwarzenegger reprise his role as a cyborg, completely shit on the T3 timeline, a movie he also starred in. Judgment Day is dialled back to 1997, as per T1 and T2, then completely messed with because they wanted to do something different.
I won’t spoil it (it does that itself) but I will remark that Arnold has twice shat on continuity because he wanted to make a quick buck. T3 utterly redeems itself by the end, I reckon. That was a decent creative choice. This? It’s your grandad’s Terminator, with your grandson’s deep knowledge of plotting (procured from TV shows, social media and video games)
