    Well, it's not going to happen anytime soon. And if the franchise does see the light of day again it'll probably be in the form of a full fledged reboot of the original.

    The repeated reference to the kill box and emp was funny. This was essentially t2 with female characters and the originals lending a hand. Would have been better if Sarah and John travelled to a alternate timeline for a change where they come across these two and realise that they have traveled to a alternate distaff version of their timeline where the terminators the Skynet the saviour are all feminine versions. If a sequel follows then it would no doubt involve the adult version of the saviour returning to kill herself in imitation of Gemini man.

    Fell to 5th Place for its second weekend. Ouch. #1 is Midway, #2 Doctor Sleep, and #3 and #4 are Last Christmas and Playing with Fire respectively, the latter being the John Cena family comedy.

    Remaking the first film will only work if it's made a couple of decades later....maybe

    A sequel of this disaster of a movie?
    Haha. They killed the franchise in so many ways.
    No thanks, our Terminator viewing at our house ends with Salvation.
    And this one never happened.

    How much you wanna bet if they make another Terminator, they'll pull a Ghostbusters and ignore this one completely, bringing back John Connor and having him as an adult with his kid(s), granny Sarah, and grandpa "Arnie" fighting evil terminators from the future. Because outside of Salvation, there's only 1 plot in this franchise.
    Critics who treat adult as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence.

    Sounds better than what they did.

    That's pretty much the alternate ending to T2, apart from Arnie.

    At what point does Terminator (in it's current form) start to look way outdated.

    The tech tree of our future doesn't look like terminator. Hypothetically speaking, if Skynet were being created today, he wouldn't send a terminator, he'd send a bunch of really really small drones to kill Sarah Connor.

    Or people would start dying from nanobot 'infections' that would just cause us to die en masse.

    That would actually sound like an interesting movie!

    Its a bit like the Star Wars movies. They never really update the tech, just the special effects.

    I think Cameron was always less focused on the feasibility of the future tech than the forces it represented. The T-800s are the figurative embodiment of the arms race--deceptively human on the surface, but revealed as Death when the superficial layers are stripped away.

    I'll say this: the sound effects from the intro future battle were straight out of the lore, and it was great to see the classic T-800 HUD in all its redness. With that said, those traits are 35 years old. They're classic and I'm glad they're in this latest iteration (and it's great to see old tech holding their own against new and improved models), but it's difficult to reconcile.

    This is why I'm not too bothered by Abrams and Discovery redoing the visuals for TOS. They were already looking dated when DS9 and Enterprise did their crossovers. TOS, above all else, is supposed to be set in the future, but constantly trying to explain over and over again that the future has a retro aesthetic to justify keeping our imaginations preserved in amber is getting too tedious.

    On the opposite end, I'm fine with Star Wars maintaining a constant look because it's set not just in a specific time frame, but an alien one. The context is so far away from human expectation that it's allowable. Tech jumps in Star Wars are less steady and less drastic than in the real world. If Star Wars happened on Earth, though, that'd be a different story.

    Saaay, what do you suppose was "going on" with Grace and Dani? I'm starting to see some interesting fanart on Tumblr. Are they partners in the future? I wonder if future Dani was killed and with her true love gone Grace offered to go through time and protect her in the past...

    What do YOU think?
