Terminator Salvation: Could we have been wrong?

May 22, 2009 By: Geek Category: Movies, Terminator

51UPcISbG8L. SL500  Terminator Salvation: Could we have been wrong?Reviews for Terminator Salvation are starting to pour in from all over these here interwebs, and man, they aren’t looking good. Could we have been wrong all this time? It is looking increasingly possible that the film is going to be the exact opposite of the masterpiece we had come to expect. The trailers look incredible, and with Christian Bale in it, things were looking even better. But remember 1999? The Phantom Menace had amazing trailers and Liam Neeson, and look what happened there!

61zImDGy8AL. SL500  Terminator Salvation: Could we have been wrong?Reading the Terminator Salvation reviews that are coming out now, it seems that we have a similar case on our hands. It would appear that everything that made the first two Terminator movies compelling has been lost in favour of big action set pieces, flat dialogue, a duff story and very little of any real substance. Hell, a bunch of the reviews are even saying that the god-awful Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines was better. Wow.

From these reviews, the picture that is being built up is of a film that is a gargantuan screw-up. Everybody here hopes that it isn’t, and we look forward to bringing you our full review once the movie is out. It is going to be interesting to see how it divides fans. Yikes.

51rcQmxwc2L. SL160  Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles cancelled: Summer Glau can finally have a showerIt’s now been confirmed by Fox that Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles has been cancelled, despite the fact that the story has been left wide open. Foolish mortals! At least finish the thing! What are the Summer Glau fanboys (of which there are a few on the YourGeekness staff) going to do for their fix now? Well, probably watch serenity another dozen times, but that’s by the by.

Seriously though, the loss of the Terminator TV series is a big blow to Science Fiction television, as there really aren’t enough 51M3i%2BHv7iL. SL160  Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles cancelled: Summer Glau can finally have a showershows about murderous rampaging cyborgs from the future on TV right now. It had been improving throughout its second season a great deal.

Hell, even the first season was a lot of fun, and while it did have some pretty big plot holes, it was one of the most consistently entertaining series around. We’ll miss it, but at least Summer Glau can get a shower and some clean clothes and avoid prosthetic injuries for a while now.
