So here's the deal with this one:

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/linda-hamilton-set-return-terminator-franchise-1040948

After waving hasta la vista, baby, more than 25 years ago, Linda Hamilton is returning to the world of Terminator, reuniting with James Cameron, the creator of the sci-fi franchise, for the new installment being made by Skydance and Paramount.

...

Tim Miller, the filmmaker who made his breakout feature debut with Deadpool, is directing the sequel, which is returning to its roots by having the involvement of Cameron for the first time since 1991’s Terminator 2: Judgment Day.

Cameron is producing along with Skydance. And the new film, which will be distributed by Paramount with Fox handling it internationally, is based on a story crafted by Cameron. Cameron and Miller created a writers room to hammer out what is planned to be a trilogy that can stand as single movies or form an overarching story. David Goyer, whose credits include the Blade and Christopher Nolan’s Batman movies, Charles Eglee, who created Dark Angel with Cameron, and Josh Friedman, who created the Terminator TV spinoff, The Sarah Connor Chronicles, were part of that room.

Arnold Schwarzenegger, who has starred as both a bad guy and good guy portraying the cool killer robot sent from the future, is already set to return and with Cameron and now Hamilton on board, the new Terminator film will once again have its original creative team.

Ned Raggett, Wednesday, 20 September 2017 04:12 (three years ago) link

Cameron and Miller are treating the new movie as a direct sequel to Cameron's Judgment Day. And the themes of the potential evils of technology will once again be at the fore.

But the new movie will also be seen as a passing of the baton to a new generation of characters.

"We’re starting a search for an 18-something woman to be the new centerpiece of the new story," Cameron said. "We still fold time. We will have characters from the future and the present. There will be mostly new characters but we'll have Arnold and Linda’s characters to anchor it."

Etc. etc. whatever fine can I go now

I wish the Terminator would travel back in time and prevent some Terminator sequels. They are our Skynet.

Scott Staph (Old Lunch), Wednesday, 20 September 2017 12:06 (three years ago) link

Can they make one with literally all of characters from all the other ones in it, like a massive comic book multiverse crossover? Even Claire Danes and old Ed Furlong.

El Tomboto, Wednesday, 20 September 2017 12:16 (three years ago) link

It's more than a little disingenuous to claim that the original team has returned, when the visionary behind that original team, James Cameron, is not directing, and the guy who directed Deadpool is.

if this delays or even prevents the thousand avatar sequels then i'm seeing it as a net good

ToddBonzalez (BradNelson), Wednesday, 20 September 2017 12:20 (three years ago) link

the live-action parts of the next three or four avatar movies are in the process of being filmed now, iirc

my hype-o-meter remains unmoved either way

kinda surprising that there were robocop and rambo cartoons (and a planned aliens cartoon!) but there was never a terminator one

Mr. Eulon Mask, urging the UN to ban the "homicide robot" (bizarro gazzara), Wednesday, 20 September 2017 12:24 (three years ago) link

They should make a cartoon about a Terminator who goes back to the past to convince somebody to make a Terminator cartoon.

Josh in Chicago, Wednesday, 20 September 2017 12:26 (three years ago) link

there was one in development in the early '90s. Never made it beyond the concept stage though iirc

Number None, Wednesday, 20 September 2017 12:26 (three years ago) link

the avatar sequels begin filming next week, apparently

obv it took a billion at the box office but nonetheless i find it hard to imagine anyone being super-excited to see three sequels to what was basically a lavish tech demo

I finally watched that last Terminator movie on Hulu, and it was just godawful stupid. The TV show wasn't bad. But this franchise is dead, just lower it into the molten steel already.

this has a better chance if being good than any of them post T2 at least.

i think Deadpool is an embarrassing character with an embarrassing fanbase but i caught the movie on TV and it wasn't half bad.

circa1916, Wednesday, 20 September 2017 13:18 (three years ago) link

i'd watch a movie where a facehugger attacks a predinator and then an army of predinataliens descend on detroit where robocop must fight them off with the grudging support of the railway children

t3 was largely garbage but i did like the bummer ending, where the world-saving plan they've been following the whole movie turns out to be a ruse to force john into safety inside cheyenne mountain just as armageddon arrives.

genisys is one of the worst movies i've ever seen

Mr. Eulon Mask, urging the UN to ban the "homicide robot" (bizarro gazzara), Wednesday, 20 September 2017 13:26 (three years ago) link

once you get over that they will never top T1/T2 and just want to watch a time travelling robot movie it's not that hard to enjoy T5.

T4 was a slug, just visually a chore to watch. too many earth tones, too much daylight, instead of scary skeleton-looking robots it had amorphous Transformers.

T5 brings back the night time, the red 80s lasers, etc. the leads weren't amazing but who cares.

i loved the CGI young Arnold. yes its cheesy. not sure what people want from these dumb movies about time traveling robots.

AdamVania (Adam Bruneau), Wednesday, 20 September 2017 14:47 (three years ago) link

For them to travel back to when there were dinosaurs, duh.

also find it strange to think that anyone might have purchased tickets to a movie called "terminator genisys" expecting it would match terminator 1 or 2

ToddBonzalez (BradNelson), Wednesday, 20 September 2017 15:39 (three years ago) link

i hope the new one returns the series a bit to its brutal cold dead tech industrial horror roots but i suspect not.

nomar, Wednesday, 20 September 2017 15:40 (three years ago) link

Hope this one is called Terminator: Revylashynz. In a heavy metal script, in front of a pentagram made out of Terminators.

they should do cgi to have edward furlong play the terminator as a kid and have him fight the dead kid who played darth vader as a kid. in the future.

scott seward, Wednesday, 20 September 2017 17:52 (three years ago) link

wait, does everyone hate Avatar? i don't hate avatar. i've only watched it at home on the couch though. so the fact that its 4 hours long doesn't bother me.

scott seward, Wednesday, 20 September 2017 17:53 (three years ago) link

also, the terminator as a kid could go into a space bar looking for young darth vader and humphrey bogart could be the bartender! they can totally do that kind of thing now.

scott seward, Wednesday, 20 September 2017 17:55 (three years ago) link

ready terminator one

ToddBonzalez (BradNelson), Wednesday, 20 September 2017 18:01 (three years ago) link

I don't hate Avatar, but it's a disposable movie that I don't ever want to think about again. I see no reason why it needs sequels.

jmm, Wednesday, 20 September 2017 18:03 (three years ago) link

It's a service to the future. If it doesn't have sequels then people will always wonder why there were no sequels.

My daughter really enjoyed the first "Terminator," as far as I could tell. She guessed a couple of the beats but still found the concept pretty compelling, I think. I might have been even more impressed, since it's been years since I saw it, and whenever I last saw it must have been a pretty shitty print somewhere (and this is after years watching it in bad cable and pan-and-scan versions). The copy I had was pretty pristine and really looked great, though as well made as the movie may be I'm sure it must really bug Cameron to have those fleeting bits of stop motion in it (as effective as they are). I'm sure Carpenter feels the same way about "The Thing."

Anyway: hopefully T2 this weekend! One of the most iconic '80s movies followed by one of the most iconic '90s movies.

Josh in Chicago, Wednesday, 27 November 2019 04:48 (one year ago) link

Surprising takeaway from watching the second one with my daughter: she liked the first one better! Another (pleasant) surprise: she thought the effects were great. A bad surprise: I accidentally put on the alternate/extended version, and it is not better than the theatrical version.

Josh in Chicago, Thursday, 28 November 2019 03:06 (one year ago) link

it really isn’t. the only really essential scene is sarah trying to destroy the terminator’s cpu and john stopping her

american bradass (BradNelson), Thursday, 28 November 2019 05:29 (one year ago) link

yeah most of the extra stuff is unnecessary - movie is tight af without it

terminators of endearment (VegemiteGrrl), Thursday, 28 November 2019 06:20 (one year ago) link

Alternate old age makeup Sarah ending also kind of silly.

so dumb

terminators of endearment (VegemiteGrrl), Thursday, 28 November 2019 06:48 (one year ago) link

great to read your happy parenting experiences, Josh :)

(and I can't imagine Carpenter has any regret over the effects in The Thing. apart from anything else, they're better than most of his subsequent films!)

insecurity bear (sic), Thursday, 28 November 2019 07:35 (one year ago) link

the alternate ending is easily the worst thing about the movie. it’s written so terribly

american bradass (BradNelson), Thursday, 28 November 2019 13:17 (one year ago) link

xpost The only issue Carpenter had, iirc from the commentary track, is the brief bit of stop animation at the end, where the thing drags the dynamite away. Otherwise yeah, "The Thing" effects are impeccable.

Josh in Chicago, Thursday, 28 November 2019 16:10 (one year ago) link

re the alternate ending and the bad outtakes, at least we can happily say that Cameron made good choices at the time and is able to tell an effective story pretty succinctly.

I mean, I love Ridley Scott but in contrast I do get kind of irritated by his now self-parodying directors cuts. 'well I made a movie that was 5 hours long that told a beautiful story but the bastards at the studio would only let me release a 2 hour cut and so now it makes no sense'

terminators of endearment (VegemiteGrrl), Friday, 29 November 2019 00:21 (eleven months ago) link

I still do kind of want to see the director’s cut of Kingdom of Heaven though, lol

mh, Friday, 29 November 2019 00:51 (eleven months ago) link

it’s really, really good

terminators of endearment (VegemiteGrrl), Friday, 29 November 2019 01:38 (eleven months ago) link

Tbf I don't think Cameron has ever called his alternate cuts director's cuts. I believe he stands by his theatrical versions, maybe even in the case of "The Abyss."

Josh in Chicago, Friday, 29 November 2019 04:02 (eleven months ago) link

The longer Aliens cut is pretty solid even tho I really don’t dig the scene w/the colonists. It’s better to go into that place cold.

omar little, Friday, 29 November 2019 04:15 (eleven months ago) link

agree

terminators of endearment (VegemiteGrrl), Friday, 29 November 2019 04:31 (eleven months ago) link

For sure. Learning Ripley had a daughter changes the dynamic a bit, though.

Josh in Chicago, Friday, 29 November 2019 04:50 (eleven months ago) link

one month passes...

hey! dark fate was surprisingly adequate for a sequel that had no reason to exist! a gentleman's 6/10, arnold looked great and was actually genuinely funny, mackenzie davis should be in everything, thanks for yr time

also i'm not gonna lie, watching an evil shapeshifting robot run amok through a border concentration camp and fillet a bunch of ice agents was extremely good

that's the first thing I've read that makes me want to see it. not enough mainstream movie sequences of cops getting owned (e.g. the bridge climax of the first nu-Apes or the wonderful chaingun shootout in the otherwise bleh Hold the Dark)

highway and prison camp setpieces were great.

but that plane/underwater sequence at the end was godawful.

This was good, this was bad. This was solid, this was OK. This was fine, this was boring. Maybe even in that order or maybe each at random times.

I was not expecting so much border stuff, I wish this movie had been smart enough to do something more interesting with it.
