Director: a McG with cheese
Starring: Sam Worthington, Christian Bale, Anton Yelchin
judgment day happened. war against the machines has commenced. skynet is self aware. there is no future but what we make, but unfortunately, skynet keeps succeeding, so apparently we're going with time theory B where the future is a set course that cannot be changed.
I didn't like this movie. I don't understand why the machines are using tactical weapons to destroy the humans rather than just laying waste to every square millimeter of surface area controlled by machines. I don't understand why the machines use bipeds on motorcycles at all. I don't understand the presence of monitors, control panels, and manually-actuated valves in Machine Central. I don't understand Bellatrix's relationship with the Machines. Was she Alice Krige?
Christian Bale is a good actor, but shit it's difficult to hold feces above your head for two hours.
they need to stop making these. they have stopped making sense. the time paradox thing now that the future is present (in the movie) makes for a whole lot of questions that have no other answer than hollywood can't stop making terminator movies. why is skynet in a building with floors and levels and security and rooms and hallways and doors when THE HUMANS ARE THE ENEMY AND ARE BEING TERMINATED. why? because holly wood can't stop making terminator movies. it brings back the whole obstacle course in the middle of the space ship in "galaxy quest". it's funny because it's true. it's transparent illogical plot making. i guess the thin argument is there that skynet was testing on humans and therefore the terminator factory with floors and assembly lines and molten metal could be made, but why would there be a sort of corporate office type of building on top of said terminator factory where skynet could communicate in a human way? because holly wood can't stop making terminator movies. i could go on, but i'll leave it to moster to ask the questions of human technology like motorcycles being used by skynet... or why do t-800s look like skeletons if they were not going to be "living tissue over a metal endoskeleton" to begin with? i think all the major production companies should hire a sarcastic jaded youth to ask the movie makers these sort of common questions to keep these sorts of stupid plot holes from happening or at least make them explainable. like tom hank's job in "big" but movies instead of toys. i know they don't really care, but they should. i might be more willing to spend money to see them in the theaters. piracy rates could possibly go down. we wouldn't have to listen to those rich assholes whine in psa's about how the poor movie industry is losing money because of piracy. yes. i would steal a car if i thought i could get away with it. especially if it was from some berjillionaire who was constantly ripping me off. yes. yes i would.
the first two terminator movies are a part of that rare occurrence when the sequel is just as good if not better than the first movie. it's unfortunate that they couldn't leave them alone. it's gotten to the point where i roll my eyes when i here the terminator "beats?" oh well.
