Re watched Terminator for the first time all the way through probably since like 2006?

My God that's a glorious movie. I'm talking about the original. I feel like it doesn't get enough praise (although Genisys pays great homage to this), it's phenomenal. Some of the effects don't stand up, but for its time, good lord.

What's everyone favorite original of these three: Terminator, Predator, or Robocop?

I honestly don't know. I used to say Robocop, but after re-watching Terminator, it's close.

(Not knowing for sure if these have been taken off or not) Black Mirror, The Walking Dead (the most recent season actually showed the variation and openness when it comes to what you can do within that world, + most recent season was critically-acclaimed too if that means anything to you), House of Cards (haven't seen S3 yet though), but really I haven't been impressed with the variety of what's on Netflix like I used to be.

Has dude been in anything worth watching other than the classic which is tropic thunder

School of Rock is an all-time classic, he's very good in Bernie. Definitely fair to say he's had an overrated career. Forgot about that movie Year One with Michael Cera as the co-star, and I still remember those **** Gulliver's Travels commercials being plastered all over the most recent LAL-BOS finals/2010 NBA Finals.

Bow Wow has the red suede XXI's and a Ferris wheel garage, you can skip it, it's crap aside from Han and maybe one of the hottest women ever to appear in one movie and then somehow drop off the Earth to never be heard from again.

Snowpiercer was a beautiful movie. It really captured humanity for good and ill throughout and summed it up nicely in the end with my boy Ed Harris. The population control issue gave a real cold reasoning to everything despite how cruel it was. The reveal that these ppl fighting back were just a bunch of ******* cannibals sick of their treatment really capped it off. I was disgusted in everyone by then. The story really mirrored civilization today or really any period imo. Plus I'm thinking they're about to bring the pedophile angle with him abducting kids but to just literally make them manual cogs in the machine was just so sick mean.gif yet necessary.

The stupid decision to blow open the door (even if the ice age was over and ppl could survive outside now) which resulted in the train wreck was the perfect ending. Of course we humans would make that choice after being faced with the truth and all that hopelessness. That Wilford didn't even give a **** in the end just kept hammering home that message. Then with only 2 survivors shown (maybe more survived the wreck) it kinda just gave that false hope for humanity's next step in the world.

The fight scenes and performances by Evans, Hurt, Spencer, Harris, Bell, Swinton, and Kang-Ho were all great and really drove the plot.

7.8/8






That Penny Dreadful finale was great. Got me really thinking about what will happen next season. Splitting some of these ppl up will make it interesting for when they all reunite. At this point I think it's time everybody knows Ethan is a werewolf and most especially that Frankenstein has been creating monster immortals.

The scene with Lily and Dorian had me roll.gif Leaking all that blood while dancing. Continuing to mock Frankenstein laugh.gif Him being lost and puzzled.

Would've liked to see Clear leave with Vanessa. If only they knew more about one another. This fool though leaves off to the arctic like anybody else could've went with him. Son on a ship by himself laugh.gif The way he killed the couple was well deserved. I don't think he should've spared the blind girl. She's rotten to the core.

The showdown was easily the best part of the finale. Makes sense it ended midway through and looking at the few difference scenes it seems they all happened simultaneously in a few minutes. Otherwise I can't make sense of the fat guy being yoked up for so long while Frankenstein and Malcolm were being tortured and Vanessa having that lengthy discussion and battle.

They did a great depiction of Lucifer through dialog with his offer to Vanessa. That's what he does, offer you what you think you want for your soul. The whole daydream was on point and tempting. Vanessa rebuking it only made sense.

Ethan giving himself up in the end was some weak **** though.

The show is great. Check out the 2 seasons before the 3rd next week.

I think during that time she was still with Tom and the church didn't want her to do the movie or maybe she just didn't want to. I don't think she was ever going to skyrocket with her career but looking at her library work you'd expect more work in general whether it's tv or film. So while I don't think she'd be A-list she should at least be a bit more in demand than she is now. She's taken breaks and I guess chosen to slow down her career to be a mom.

I could almost compare how her career has gone to Josh Hartnett except I'm not aware of her being offered several huge roles and passing on them.

Those first two terminator films are great movies.. Not just great action movies.. Both hold up well story wise.. And they stick to hg wells 'the time machine' rules of things

Robocop was, what it was.. Need to rewatch predator 1 and 2 to see how those hold up.. Haven't seen those in years, just know how bad those next versions were

Season 3 has to be the reign of Dorian, Lily and Mr Clare?
Episode was all I hoped for.

A top Season Finale, top top.

I meant judging the first movies by their merits alone. Not counting sequels. Obviously Predator and Robocop have terrible sequels. laugh.gif

Idk about Clare though.

Doesn't look like he wants apart of whatever Lily has planned w/ him going off to the arctic & all.

Agree.

I've praised the original Terminator on here before. Personally, I like it a little more than T2.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Yea this shocked me TBH.

He chased that tail all season, she finally gives him the guts and then he dips to Icetown.

 

I guess after he killed the Putney's he realized he doesn't want to be that Monster Lily wants him to be in order to roll with her. But he should have bent the Blind girl too, that wench.

I admit I've only seen the original Terminator once.... and it was awhile ago too.

 

Terminator 2 was just on HBO/TV far more often growing up so that's the one I watched.

 

I need to rewatch the original again.

post #43886 of 57669
Everyone should rewatch terminator and jaws now that you guys are older and can appreciate the little things going on in the movie..


Need to rewatch silence of the lambs to see how that holds up myself

Jaws I can get with, Terminator or the second one was just meh to me. If talking about James Cameron movies, I'd rather watch Aliens or The Abyss.
post #43889 of 57669
I agree that people need to take a look at Terminator again. It's so much more serious in tone than even T2.

The film is pretty in your face throughout. If you can forget about what happens in T2, it's a much more enjoyable film because it could've been a standalone and still be revered as a science fiction classic. It's just the effects weren't there at the time so a lot of the effects aren't that polished by today's standards, while T2 still holds up today.

I didn't say it was a better movie. Its not. I just happen to enjoy re-watching it more than I do T2.
