My wife's comments as she desecrates one of my all time favorite flicks:


So what this is like the internet fighting them? This is what Twitter is in the future?

That dude from the last movie just inseminated her and that's it? He's still dead?

Do we get to see his butt again?

Arnold got smaller.

Some intern had to sit there and enter random numbers for the Terminator POV.

She seemed pretty normal pumping that gas at the end…

James Cameron does it again. The action in this is some of the best in the biz. Arnold is at the top of his game and this makes me want to revisit all of his blockbusters.

Unfortunately I think this suffers from not having a co-star beside Arnold that has the same star power, x-factor. Linda Hamilton is good, but gets minimized by the black hole that Arnold is.

Arnold's nude body is deeply inspiring to me.

The opening credits made me think I was in for a 80s disaster of a western, but this was surprisingly good! It had the gritty realism I love in westerns with billowing smoke from pistols, ruthless gunslingers, and costumes covered in dirt. Some might think the plot is unfocused but I loved how it accented the fact that the regulators had no where to run.

This could have been a western classic if not for the horrendous, out of place 80s score that is so out of place. Hear more of my thoughts on 70mm.
