terminatorgenisys_smileArnold Schwarzenegger’s been promising to be back since 1991’s Terminator 2: Judgement day, and now, more than two decades later, he’s finally done it. Well sort of. Terminator Genisys may suffer from some bland casting (seriously, Hollywood, just stop with this Jai Courtney experiment!), a coupled forced moments of nostalgia and one or two dodgy action beats, but it also features an Arnie on top entertaining form, lots of great explodey bits, an intriguing new direction for the story, and most importantly, a stupid amount of fun that lets you overlook some flaws.

At least that’s how I felt about it in my 3.5/5 star review. But we’re not a dictatorship here (despite “Kim Jong” Darryn’s insistence that all the men on the staff have to get the same haircut as he does or face the firing squad), so we would love to know what you thought about the movie. So sound off in the comments below, and remember that this discussion is for people who have seen the movie, so SPOILERS are encouraged.

  1. some how i dont think Carmen understood what the article was about….lol troll! anyways, i really loved this installment. it was fresh, action packed, kept me in my seat & hoping for more Arnie magic. the plot wasnt to hard to follow, loved the little nods it had to the first film, like the scene where Kyle puts on the nike shoes in the clothing store. Arnie was incredible, so funny, way better than when he was in the 3rd film. “have you mated yet??” hahaha & that smile…. legend! only thing that did irritate me was giving away what happened to John in the trailers… needed that to be a surprise! i do like the upgrade Arnie got cos it means any actor can carry the torch from there on but in all honesty…who could replace him! will definitely get it on blu ray

      Even the director and screenwriters agreed that that spoiler should not have been in the trailer, but apparently the decision was made by the studio guys above their heads who were afraid that audiences would think this was a remake. So to prove that this is doing something different they gave away it’s biggest surprise. Which is retarded, because there are a lots of other scenes that could have sold it.

      To be fair though, the trailers for Terminator 2 also ruined the big plot twist that Arnie was not the hero after being the bad guy in the first film. Rewatch how Cameron shot the opening 15-20 mins of that movie, and its clear that he wanted to keep some mystery around whether Arnie or the T1000 was the good guy.
