Terminator Salvation sucks

Check out the Tomato Meter with 92 reviews so far. It's 35%:

http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/terminator_salvation/

I was looking forward to this but oh well. I knew MrG was a bad director but with so much riding on this you would think he would have gotten this right. But, I'm still going to see just because l like the former movies.

Most probably they should have asked the tv-show people to direct the movie as well.
If any fan has not noticed, the Resistance will be going over to the SciFi forums tomorrow. (8pm eastern, but probably does not matter what time you go if you want to tell them to please buy the show.)

As the forums are quite popular, all fans are needed there to tell they exist.

Still looking forward to it. I don't care how bad people think it is, just what I think of it!

Terminator fans are just pissed that Summer Glau isn't in the new movie.

Wrong...forum.

And after reading the thread title, I thought you had seen it. What's it like having others form your opinion for you?

Re: Terminator Salvation sucks

Yeah I had a bad feeling when word came out they changed the ending 3-4 times, what does that say about the rest of the movie? It doesn't lead to anything important! You would think that with this trying to be a new trilogy they wouldn't blow it, but I had a bad feeling they would.

Maybe you (and everyone else who's badmouthing it without seeing it) should watch the film and then form an opinion on it, instead of letting a bunch of people on the internet decide for you.

Re: Terminator Salvation sucks

Do you think I'm going to waste $7-$12 watching a horrible movie? Are you out of your mind?

Plus the lead is an asshole, and that will hurt the movie, not much, but will hurt how it preforms.

What else are you gonna spend $7-$12 on?

And if you're not going to watch it, then you don't really have the right to comment on it. Well, at least not without looking like an idiot. Oh wait, this is teh internets, where idiots are the vocal majority. Carry on.

If the majority of people don't like a movie, odds are it's not worth paying to see. We use the information available to us at the time to decide whether or not to see it.

I was looking forward to this movie. The trailers look good. However, most of the reviews thus far have been terrible. So am I going to see it in the theater anymore? No.

I might rent it at some point, but the reviews have killed the excitement for me. Plus, I can think of a lot of better things to spend $7-12 on instead of a movie that most people think is shit.
