Im thinking of Predator and how larger than life that movie was. Reason being, Arnold Schwartzenegger was LARGER THAN LIFE back when. Lucas, & Spielberg, and later James Cameron created an expectation for their audiences; every new movie had to top the other, and the results were golden. So when Arnold Schwartzenegger, who never done sequels back then, decided he was doing one along with Iron Jim, the expectations was grand I've researched. With these two heavyweights at the heights of their careers--and I have to add The Abyss was kinda sorta a disappointment and that's because of the success of Batman, Lethal Weapon 2, and The Last Crusade released around the same time that year, James Cameron was determine not to make another stinker ALLEGEDLY again. The result: the movie was a phenomenon and it immortalized Arnold and Cameron -- Please bring out a True Lies 4k Blu Ray, but when Rise of the Machines was on the horizon, Arnold was old and his star power was fading fast, and I think the movie reflected that in a bad way. As the films creeped on, even that TV series, it lacked the behemoth called Schwartzenegger of the 80's, and without the power, strength and force of what he represented back when, what did they have??? I'm a lady and I don't find female Terminators remotely interesting or thrilling; it's like asking me to have the same intrigue and intensity of a ferocious, male lion for a wolverine--the teddy bear beast not the Marvel Comics character. I hate to contrast these monster movies to the WWE but that's what they are to me and why T2 was so great. The protagonist and antagonist have to be larger than life --hand and hand, I'm sad I was born in the generation where actors eligible for AARP are somehow supposed to be larger than life figures. It destroys my suspension of disbelief. Can this new edition of The Terminator at least meet some aspects of what I loved? I guess I'll wait for my friends to go pay top dollar -- just to see how bad it was.
