      Salvation's direction was the way to go with the series if they wanted to keep the story going, but it bombed so hard they went back to remaking the first two films.

        Hiring the only Aussie that can't do an American accent, and then a guy who's willing to play Connor but they have to massively alter the script, doomed it before it ever hit theaters. With the original script, and T2 not existing, it would've made Terminator cemented as dark scifi, almost horror.

      The Sarah Connor Chronicles were pretty fucking great before they got terminated. Being a tv show they had the scope to change up the formula and play with some very different themes.

      The Terminator is superior movie in more than one way. That doesn't mean that T2 isn't a good movie or one of the best sequels ever made. One legitimate continuation of the story could have been prequel about Future War, made by Cameron within couple or few years from T2, as cast members like Michael Biehn was still young enough to reprise his role as Kyle Reese believably. Sticking to original future war aesthetic.

      >le Terminator is le horror
      What a retarded reddit thing to say.

      It is slasher with bit of scifi put on the monster. Terminator is pretty classic monster.

      Yeah but T2 was just plain better.

      It had surreal budget for its day and higher production values. It is great action flick with bit more philosophical depth than typical action flick of its day with no fate what we make it stuff, but pretty much everyone who rates it over the original film is pleb that has massive nostalgia boner for it for some reason. It lacks the desperation of original action-horror-scifi masterpiece.

      Only good continuation after T2 was tv-show Sarah Connor Chronicles. It actually tried to do something other than T2 remake or shitting on entire mythos like Salvation.

      It's the fact that it was a middling stand alone movie before T2 turned it into a franchise. T2 was such a cultural phenomenon that multiple film students (including PTA) quit school to just start making their own films because "they weren't teaching us how to make movies like that, and we weren't interested in making anything else."

      I'm not even a Terminator fanboy and I have fond memories of watching T2 with my Ma growing up multiple different times.

    >Die Hard, the two-word phrase found in each of the films' titles, is a term that describes someone fanatical, devoted and strongly resistant to change, so it is no surprise that McClane adopts the cultural attitudes of the American Western for his personal identity, not just in his famous “Yippee-ki-yay” catchphrase but also in how he behaves and what he represents, hearkening back to an era of unmasked American colonization, genocide and misogyny.
    >The triumph at the end of Die Hard isn’t the thwarted heist or even in John and Holly getting back together: John’s nightmarish version of America has been restored when a woman is dragged back to being nothing more than a wife and a cop is unleashed once again as a killer
    >This is why Die Hard is the worst of the franchise: because of what it represents and what it celebrates, so enthusiastic in elevating McClane to the status of a hero, it is hard not to read the film as a satire of American misogyny and violence.
    >This is also what makes A Good Day to Die Hard the best of the series, not in what it changes but in what it retains....it is here that A Good Day to Die Hard succeeds, not attempting to redeem McClane for the 21st century but just showing him as he is and has always been: a violent, unpleasant old man that no one wants to be around.

I actually don't disagree with a lot of that analysis, but it so totally misses the point in that Die Hard is meant to be a fun action movie and some moral send up of America in the 1980s. That's his reading applied to a film that isn't trying hard to be ideological so much as trying to be fun.

        Well, a movie can be fun but also betray the underlying political beliefs of its writer/director. They don't live in vacuum, and what they believe is good/just and evil/unjust will seep into their works and influence others. I think this is what they mean by "critical theory"?

    No, it revamped it. The Terminator was never supposed to have sequels because the more you explain about it the more holes appear in the world and lore. But T2 answered questions that should have been left unanswered and it became a franchise that was always chasing its tail trying to build a future that had more holes than a fishing net.

      T3 I feel closes the loop. It should have been a better movie but it still serves well as a conclusive end to the premise and locks it in, like the whole thing is about trying to change the future and it hammers home firmly that the future cannot be changed and everything that happens in the trilogy does happena nd isn't left dangling at the end of a causal what-if, Skynet cannot kill John Connor before Judgement Day, Sarah Connor cannot stop Judgement Day from happening.

    In a sense it destroyed the franchise by being so good that there was nothing anyone could do afterwards that could even compare

      Yes, it means it "kills the franchise". I need to consume more of this franchise dammit!

    It seems like bait because T2 is fine on its own, but it's true that pretty much every single problem plaguing the franchise can be traced back to T2.

    T2 is one of very few movies that they can put on tv and marathon 24 hours and still get good ratings Along with A Christmas Story, the original Ghostbusters, the Back to the Future trilogy, the Lord of the Rings trilogy, the original Star Wars trilogy, and maybe 20 other films.

    Salvation had absolutely retarded Skynet vehicles designs, with some kind of giant humanoid mech spawning smaller motorbike mechs. The action was too over the top and not grounded at all. Skynet spoke to humans for the first time and it was the most generic "bad AI" tripe ever. It just wasn't very good except for the "If you can hear it, you are the resistance" line. That was cheesy, but nice.

    But i liked generic grey and black post apocalyptic world 🙁 I also liked that they still used ordinary guns and had helicopters and A10's even though that didn't make much sense.
    >but for the whole structure of the movie this made sense, start the franchise from the beginning and move up to the later stages of the war but the people in charge of production didn't realised that people that liked T1 and T2, specially those who grew up as T2 was released or relatively new, not because it was a grey generic post-apocalyptic movie riddled with HKs but because it was a 80s neon post apocalypse
    Gotta be honest, i almost broke my brain trying to structurize this whole entire sentence properly.

    I agree. I saw it in the cinemas in the 90s. The first thing that hit is why the fuck is there a fucking kid in the show. The first was basically an extended massacre. Gripping, tightly woven and featuring a merciless badass at the centre of the action. The second basically revolved around babysitting and shitty Harley Davidson advert placements. It didn't kill the franchise, that's stupid. It was massively popular. What it did, was dumb it down and make it family friendly. I didn't like it. It wasn't really Terminator any more.

      Fascinating worldview these subhumans have, where the goal of a movie is not to tell a complete story but rather set up infinite sequels.

        T2 is the one that set up infinite sequels though, by shitting on the closed timeloop rule of T1.

    I thought David Foster Wallace did a fantastic review of Terminator 2

    Admittedly, I liked it as a dumb aciton movie. But I have to admit his criticisms are totally valid. It's nohwere near as good as the first.

      David Foster Wallace once wrote a piece about David Lynch. In the piece, he coined a new term: "Lynchian". Wallace described a Lynchian tone as "the unbelievably grotesque existing in a kind of union with the unbelievably banal."

      He described a husband beating his 1950s housewife to death because she bought the wrong brand of peanut butter. "I told you to buy the JIF," he'd say as he's clobbering her to death. This, he said, would qualify as almost perfectly Lynchian.

      I think "I Am Jazz" enters into Lynchian territory. The .webm above shows a simple domestic scene. The women look like average suburban moms. They're relaxing on the couch. One imagines they might be discussing casserole recipes when we cut to them. But it slowly dawns on us that in the living room, with placid expressions on their faces, they're talking about the woman's transvestite son's genitals.

      Despite the obvious subtext and the producers' hope to normalize this horror, the average person is totally disgusted. Nevertheless, the viewer is fascinated. We're drawn further into this. The sheer naked horror of what they're saying, the blase quality with which they're saying it, it creates this brutal paradox that almost rapes the viewer's basic sense of what is decent.

      Thanks for this. It's been a while since I've read DFW and I forgot how much I love his voice. I wonder what he would've thought of the Marvel orgy in cinema that pervaded the 2010s?

    >In Terminator 2: Judgment Day, the police computer the T-1000 uses lists John's date of birth as February 28, 1985, consistent with his conception in The Terminator, taking place in May 1984, making him a 10-year-old in T2. However, this is contradicted in T2 when the reprogrammed Terminator tells John he will send it back through time "35 years from now". This would mean the movie is set in 1994 when John is a 9-year-old.

    If they hadn't made Terminator 2 there wouldn't have even been a franchise. And if Terminator 2 hadn't been a successful movie they wouldn't have dreamed about making another one. Terminator 1 and 2 are the only two movies in the franchise that are at all memorable. Everything else is dogshit.

    While this is obviously cringe clickbait the franchise really should go back to it's roots as sci-fi horror if they insist on making more.

    Making it a straight action franchise will always have limited returns since we live in the capeshit age where superpowered heroes and villains in your standard action movie plot is the norm. There aren't many sci-fi horror franchises still trucking though since they also keep fucking up Aliens and Predator.

    Sick an antagonist terminator against just humans again, they're designed and written to be scary and super hard to defeat, not always having a good robot around to get into a hand to hand fight with them.

    before all the marvel-tier time travel and multiverse nonsene made spacetime reality shenanigans tiresome, it would have been interesting as some other anon said to have them explore the various changes made away from the initial timeline due to skynet over compensating before it's defeat by sending out its temporal blitzkrieg of terminators. so much divergence probably caused a whole mess of problems.

    Cameron wanted it to be the definite final movie but the studio forced him to remove the ending where it shows Sarah as an old woman and John having children.

    T1 was great but T2 was some kind of closure. The problem is some movies don't need to be a franchise.
    John Wick was amazing as a stand alone movie then they kept making them and adding "lore" and it's shitty storytelling. People talk about the action but the story is now a fucking mess.
