Terminator: Salvation Discuss/Grade <Spoilers>



Warner Brothers:
The year is 2018.

Judgment Day has come and gone, leveling modern civilization. An army of Terminators roams the post-apocalyptic landscape, killing or collecting humans where they hide in the desolate cities and deserts. But small groups of survivors have organized into a Resistance, hiding in underground bunkers and striking when they can against an enemy force that vastly outnumbers them.

Controlling the Terminators is the artificial intelligence network Skynet, which became self-aware 14 years earlier and, in the blink of an eye, turned on its creators, unleashing nuclear annihilation on an unsuspecting world.

Only one man saw Judgment Day coming. One man, whose destiny has always been intertwined with the fate of human existence: John Connor (Christian Bale).

Now the world is on the brink of the future that Connor has been warned about all his life. But something totally new has shaken his belief that humanity stands a chance of winning this war: the appearance of Marcus Wright (Sam Worthington), a stranger from the past whose last memory is of being on death row before awakening in this strange, new world.


Connor must decide whether Marcus can be trusted. But as Skynet adapts new strategies to end the Resistance forever, Connor and Marcus must find common ground to take a stand against the onslaught—to infiltrate Skynet and meet the enemy head-on.

Re: Terminator: Salvation Discuss/Grade <Spoilers>

Hmm. I definitely plan on checking this out, but not before I see Star Trek again. So it might have to wait. Or not. Depends on when I see Trek, hopefully during the week.

The "inner geek" is really looking forward to it but I do have low expectations, and not just because of McG. Not even the credibility of Christian Bale and co-screenwriter Jonathan Nolan can flush away this somewhat queasy feeling I'm having in regards to my feelings over the film. We'll see come this weekend, I guess.

I am anxious to hear Danny Elfman's score, if anything.

The look on Bale and Worthington's faces are a riot. Worthington looks like he's caught between confusion and being caught masturbating by his mom, and Bale looks hugely constipated.

Bale totally looks like he's out in the woods trying to pinch a loaf.

Reviews are coming in. 14% on RT so far.

*Sigh*. Are we really surprised? What did we expect from McG? He legally changed his name Mc-fuckin-G, for christ's sake.

Anyway, I'll obviously see it because I'm a consumerist whore with a fondness in my heart for T2.

Mc
Fuckin'
Geeee.

And he made it official enough to use as his billing.

And I'm only partially being serious.

And I'll be there on Friday anyway.

Twilight just learned something new!

"It's fun to hate a guy called McG. In my humble opinion it's sheer fucking lunacy because it's just short for McGinty - fucking get past it. My name is Joseph McGinty Nichol. My mother's maiden name is McGinty. My uncle is Joe, my grandfather was Joe. I was called McG since the day I was born because we were broke and there were three Joes in the house. There's no Hollywood, 'I think I'll give myself a nickname' bullshit. It just is. And at some point I would be a sell-out punk if I rolled over and said, 'Well, call me Joe.' [...] I can only sigh and move forward.[22]"

-McG



http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McG




I hereby rescind everything I've said about McG in this thread. I'm sure T4 will soar to the highest apex of human artistic achievement.

Re: Terminator: Salvation Discuss/Grade <Spoilers>

Screw you haters.

I just saw it two hours ago at a sneak.

My grade: I'll Be Back, A, 3.5*** out of 4

I could care less what critics think. Glad when we synch up but I've enjoyed enough movies they trash that wiping my ass with their opinions is about all the paper is good for.

I saw it for free and will be paying to see it Saturday cause I already have the tickets.


I'm not going to break it down cause so few have seen it and I apparently am the only vote thus far.

Eager to discuss it with those who've seen it and not just excited to bash it with no justification.

Re: Terminator: Salvation Discuss/Grade <Spoilers>

I'm seeing Star Trek again this weekend but I'll try to catch it the following week. The problem with Star Trek is it was so good and so upbeat I'm not as interested in seeing the post-9/11 doom and gloom horsecrap they've been plopping down on the big screen for so long.

Anyway I hope it's as good as the original or at least as good as T3. Shit I'd even settle for another T2 though about 50% less campy. Probably not much chance of that though. Christian Bale is turning out to be the Shatner of my generation.

Re: Terminator: Salvation Discuss/Grade <Spoilers>

Am I the only Terminator fan who was never really interested in seeing a Future War movie to begin with? The little flashbacks in the previous movies were cool and all, but I wasn't dying to see two hours of people running around a dreary, desolate landscape getting shot at by Terminators. lol
