I wouldn't say that this is one of the best film franchises, but its a nice one. The Terminator and Terminator 2 are both really good movies, both for different reasons. I like Terminator 2 more than The Terminator, mostly because I watched it countless times as a kid and it means a lot for my childhood. To be honest, I didn't watch The Terminator all the way through until I was about 14 or 15. I've only watched the film from start to finish about once or twice at the moment.

As for Terminator 3 and Terminator: Salvation...eh, they're okay. As far as movie sequels go, they do their job of keeping the audience entertained, especially Terminator 3. I will say that they're pointless, as all of plot elements were resolved in Terminator 2, but I understand that they wanted to make more films. That's fine, so long as the movies are good, and the third one wasn't that bad. Salvation, on the other hand, doesn't really feel like a Terminator film, and more like The Matrix or any given Post-Apocalyptic film.

Overall, the franchise has some good entries and some okay entries. I've always liked the first two films, and the other two are okay.

Unfortunately the writting was dead weight and the showrunners honestly seemed like they had no clue where they wanted the series to go, so the let it walk in place. It got to the point the only reason I was still watching it was Summer Glau, but everything else was trying my patience.

I'd actually would rather watch Salvation again over that poop. As aimless and stupid as it was, at least it attempted a story or even a point. It failed miserably, but the effort was appreciated after sitting through the Sarah Connor Chronicles.


Mid season 2 was where I almost quit as well, but the last few episodes started killing people left and right, and the cliff hanger ending opened up the show to have the story line contiune in the present whith one main character jumping to the Future War. I enjoyed the smaller scope of the show, mainly because the movies are already so good at showing me the grander scale of the war. The plot of Salvation was not great, but it was the best Future War flash back/forward sequence yet.

Terminator- Great film, the only in the franchise with a low budget. It's badass, but it's overshadowed by Terminator 2. 9.5/10
Terminator 2: Judgement Day- Really great film, my favorite movie, the speical effects were good, story was good, everything in it was good. 10/10
Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines- It's not bad, but not as good as the first two movies, glad Arnold Schwarzenegger came back for this movie, and the T-X is hot. 8.7/20
Terminator Salvation- I hate this movie, I don't even count it as a Terminator movie, too much CGI, PG-13 rating, story was very depressing, and a big disappointment. Seriously, a shitty looking CGI naked Arnold Schwarzenegger was the ONLY Terminator who had the balls to fight John Connor one-on-one?! Epic FAIL!!!!! -1/10

Those are my short reviews on the Terminator trilogy and TS.

I'm a big fan of the Terminator franchise. The first is actually about tied with the second for my favorite, although the general consensus in moviedom is that T2 is the superior, so I'm a bit of an outsider there. The third was solid, but not on the overall level of quality that we had with the first two. Salvation is a disappointment. Superb special effects, but let down by relying on visuals and trying to appeal to too many people with the watered-down-from-R rating.

Interesting mini-series from Dark Horse Comics featuring the Terminator from writer Dan Jolley, and artist Jamal Ingle, TERMINATOR:Enemy of My Enemy (http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=50264) Set in 1985, in which a T-800, sent to kill a bio-engineer whose developed a process of growing skin in the lab. But this time, the resistance didn't send anyone to intercept the Terminator. So she, and others after her, don't have a clue with what they're dealing with.

I'll say this. I may be pretty easygoing on movies, but very, VERY rarely do I give a film a 10 out of 10 rating. I have to find the story entertaining, see the characters and plot a success, but most important of all, a 10 out of 10 movie has to give me that little shiver up my spine as the credits roll. The shiver that I get from a really, really damn good movie. And off the top of my head, only two movies have done that. Gojira and the original Terminator.

I love these movies.

I haven't watched the original Terminator in many years, but I really, really liked it when I was younger. Just got the blu-ray, and the wife (who's a bigger fan than I am) and I are gonna watch it tonight.

I have absolutely no use for Terminator 2, though. I find that movie god-awfully boring and heavy-handed.

My favourite is Terminator 2: Judgement Day and my least is Terminator Salvation. I can't wait to find out more about Terminator: Genesis though.

The interwebs is talking about the announcement of two sequels to Genisys already, one in 2017 and the other in 2018.

Used to be rather ambitious, but it has gotten more popular these days to more quickly map out a sequel or two.

Any idea on the Director for Genisys?

Genisys is being directed by Alan Taylor, probably best known for Thor: The Dark World. He also directed some episodes from Mad Men, Game of Thrones, etc.
