    I haven't seen this posted, the Terminator series is my favourite Sci-Fi and also I am a fan boy! I really like the look of this new trailer!

    I'd throw some ticket money at this.

    Looking forward to this. Hope it’s better than Genisys.

    It might look ok if it weren't for the absolutely horrible action. That plane shot looks far worse than the end of Fast and the Furious 6, and the fuckin' terminators punching each other looks AWFUL. Like, there's absolutely zero sense of weight. They turn them into CGI dummies so they can SPIN AROUND! The most egregious is the guy jumping in the air and throwing the bar - it might have looked good if they'd just, I dunno...PULLED HIM UP WITH WIRES AND HAD HIM THROW A BAR? Instead we get a lifeless mannequin.

    Actual screenshot from trailer:

    This movie CAN NOT be good with that kind of thing in it, flat out. It could have the best script in the world, but if they care so little about the movie to put that kind of trash in it, there's a very low ceiling on possible quality. It looks as bad as the infamous train fight in Black Panther, but doesn't have the excuse of it being actors in cartoony suits or it being a silly comic book movie.

    Yeahyeahyeah, "the cgi in the trailer isn't finished!!!" The shot's conceptually flawed if they even go with CGI for it. Blech.

    What a downright generic-looking actor for the (bad) terminator. Looks like he wandered over from a mobile plan commercial.

    Wouldn't that be ideal though for a cyborg meant to infiltrate human bases and go unnoticed?

    I still haven't watched the latest Terminator movies. Was it Terminator 3 that it had the combination of T-800 and T-1000? If so that movie sucked so much it out me off the rest of the movies. Maybe this one will be better though.

    Another film? I couldn't even finish the last one when I tried to watch it.

    I actually liked Genisys. It was substantially better than T3 or that other shit with Christian Bale. I'll go see this, if only because I've had a soft spot for Terminator ever since I was a little kid.

    As a big fan of the original, this is absolute garbage. It will make tons of money and give some fans a fix for sure. After the last three I didn't have high hopes for this one and I'm not disappointed. I would rather see stop motion and puppets than the ridiculous bullshit 100% cgi action scenes they have stolen from every shit action movie made since 2003.

    You should've just stayed in your damned submarine, Mr. Cameron...

    IIRC both of the last terminator movies were considered flops?

    I think I'm the only person on planet earth who enjoyed Terminator: Salvation. I've only seen it once, and it was in the theater the night it came out. I remember seeing the trailer for the first time in a theater, and I got goosebumps, and came away happy after seeing the movie later. I like it. Was it the same experience as seeing T2 for the first time? No. But I still really enjoyed it.

    I liked it. Aside from the original, it was the only one that had it’s own story line.

    I kind of like Terminator 3 and remember having a generally positive reaction to Salvation, though I don't remember much of anything about it. Genisys was really painful, like I'd rather rewatch most of the Transformers sequels than it.

    Yeah, T3 wasn't terrible I just think the cinematography and tone was too "bright" and modern for the series. One of my favorite aspects of T1 and T2 was the dark, bleak, and heavy feeling the movies had. The campier moments didn't do anything for that either (see: T-X's expanding rack, male stripper glasses T-800, Dr. Silberman showing up out of nowhere, etc.).

    I also thought Nick Stahl was a terrible John Connor.

    But there were the bones of a decent movie there, and I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy watching it despite the flaws.

    Salvation would have made a solid popcorn action flick without the Terminator association. Standard action movie with shallow, predictable plot and ridiculous mcguffins (field heart transplant?).

    I haven't seen Genisys. The amount of times I had to fix autocorrect on that one was enough. :lol:

    I like it when I think of it as a Fallout Tactics film but not as a Terminator film. The original script sounded a lot better than the final version we got.

    If you only like the first two films then it’s 3 bad to 2 good films. Better than Aliens with 5 bad to 3 good.

    To a lot of people, Alien is 6:2. Not me, because I effing love 3 even though it's so different...but a lot of folks HATE 3.

    OT, and should probably go in Unpopular Opinions Thread, but:

    Alien 3 is the best one. It's just so bleak and claustrophobic. I think it's even scarier than the first.

    I think because 2 was so good, and a straight up action/thriller, 3 gets a bad rap.

    I've put off re-watching 3 for nearly 10+ years now. I remember enjoying it when I first saw it but found it tried to mimic 1 a bit too much while distancing itself from what 2 did. I have an Alien Boxset somewhere so I'll give it a watch soon.
