Terminator 2: Judgment Day

Terminator 2: Judgment Day ★★★★

Gone are the days when it didn't matter if you could tell it was a stuntman, because the stunts were so insane. When the stunt guy climbs out of the pickup, across the bed of the truck, on to the semi, and then starts shooting through the semi's windshield...

The film isn't perfect though, and the extended cut definitely has stuff that doesn't work. For one, the extended cut is too long, and feels like it just has some scene plopped in for no reason. I am so far removed from the theatrical cut (this is the first time I have logged the film since I have been a member of Letterboxd), so I can't remember if this is in the theatrical, but the Sarah Connor narration is brutal. Also, there is a huge lull in the middle of the film, between the mental institution and the office sequence, that feels like it could be condensed big time.
