Terminator 2: Judgment Day

Terminator 2: Judgment Day ★★★★★

It's just the greatest at every single damn thing it does. Take or leave the 3D conversion but seeing this on the big screen at "holy shit!" volume (thank you Vue York) was kind of a revelation after so many different experiences of it over the years. I was surprised they went for the original cut (I know they changed a little nitpicky things but there's none of the extra footage from either extended version - I personally prefer the version that has all the extra stuff minus the additional ending…) but it was still as perfect as it's always been. It's not just 20 years since all this was meant to have happened, it's 20 years (almost to the week) since I spent (feels like, my memory's almost certainly exaggerating) all afternoon going round and round on the T2 ride over and over again at Universal when I was 17, which remains one of the greatest times of my life… and there were definitely parts of the experience today that took me right back to those carefree days… so thank you to all concerned…
