You have me laughing Melissa. I know you and our own Chief Justice Michael Stailey really found this film terrible. I suppose that is the beauty of film in that one person's trash is another person's treasure.
I thought this film was loud, rather simple minded, and only there for the robot action set pieces. I think on that level it was more compelling than the TRANSFORMERS sequel. But was it a "good movie"? Not in any literary sense. Yet I had fun! I thought it was just fine for a popcorn flick directed by someone silly enough to call themselves "McG".
I don't think TERMINATOR should have gone on past #2. And I hear talk that the franchise is yet again up for sale! It is doubtful McG and Bale will reunite for the other two installments they were planning. So you may not have to suffer through another chapter... at least not one like this...
I found it just fine though. Although "Fancy" liked it even better than me... check out his BluRay take on things!
