Oh fuck, he's terrible. Zero charisma, and not a very good actor in my opinion. Bummer.

That said, people can get better over time so I won't write him off just yet.

Re: Emilia Clarke cast as Sarah Connor in Terminator reboot

So Skynet Timesccops pregnant Sarah.

Put a chip in John Connors foetus head.

As soon as they have done that... They kill him in the present.

No alternate timeline.

The problem is that every time they try to timescoop pregnant Sarah, she's not bloody pregnant!

Although during an inspection of her womb, while she is being held over before being sent back, the complex is assaulted by the human rebel scum, and eventually... Kyle shags her in the future, they destroy Skynet and then send her back knocked up to maintain the timeline's integrity.

Hm.... Sarah Connor is one tough lady, and from what I've seen of GoT sofar, everytime Emilia tries to come across as a bad-ass, she fails miserably. Granted, I've only seen seasons 1 and 2, but I am not impressed.
I thought she was great in season 1, which is basically a story of Dany as a vulnerable and initially powerless teenage girl, who goes through a lot of shit, fights back, falls in love unexpectedly, suffers terrible losses and eventually grows into a powerful woman... which is Terminator I Sarah Connor in a nutshell.

In season 2, they gave her absolutely rubbish material, a bad story and awful dialogue (invented for the show - it's very different in the book, but she isn't that much in it, so they invented stuff to give her more screentime)

While Emilia Clarke is a good choice for the role, I really wanted the rumor of Tatiana Maslany to be true.
I would watch Tatiana Maslany paint a fence. I so love her.

Remember, I'm just the messenger.

If I had to pick amongst my favorite human male characters EVER in film, Reece would be up there. Even if that list could also include TV. Sure, the Trek captains and some other big characters would be up there too, but Reece was always up there, and he would have the shortest amount of actual screentime which makes it even more impressive. He was always the perfect tough-guy hero to me. He knew how to sound sound reassuring, But that moment of vulnerability (I studied every line, every curve) is what sold it for me. What an incredible character!

This guy has a few qualities that Reece had, but the choice is underwhelming.

Re: Emilia Clarke cast as Sarah Connor in Terminator reboot

Personally I like the misspelling, distances it from the original, maintains some dignity.

I remember when this gorilla was cast in the latest Die Hard turd. Beating out Aaron Paul from Breaking Bad. Aaron Paul would also make for a far better Kiyal Rhys.

I could be overrating Aaron Paul. He has plenty of potential to embarrass himself in the upcoming Need for Speed. One part Fast and Furious ripoff, one part video game license? Good luck bro, I'm pulling for ya!

Re: Emilia Clarke cast as Sarah Connor in Terminator reboot

Well the first pics of Arnold's Terminator are out, with what surprisingly appears to be gray hair. Not really sure I buy the "aged skin" idea, but I guess it's the best explanation they could have come up with.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz...ia-Clarke.html

With an older Arnold, a different Sarah Conner, and all the time travel stuff going on, this movie has the potential to be a huge, confusing mess. So here's hoping they figured everything out and have a really strong script to work from...

The way I see it is if the infiltrator terminators were made to be so realistic that they can sweat, smell, and bleed, then it's likely that the biological component can age as well. It seems a lot less farfetched than most elements of Terminator.
