Big Summer Movies Part 3. (Part 6)

Now, after promising it for ages, fiiiiiiiinally....

Terminator Genisys (2015)

Series recap.

Now, the rundown.
  • Way better than 3 & 4, not quite up to the standards of 1 & 2, but still pretty damned entertaining.
  • Yeah screw it, I rank them 1, 2, and Genisys a very close third. Then 4, then 3.
  • Definitely worth seeing.
  • The negative critics can go fuck themselves. They have other reasons for going after this franchise that have nothing to do with the film. Fuck them and their petty biases.
  • Also ignore reviews from people who say "I can't keep track of this time travel! It's a mess!", they're dumb, or worse, playing dumb to look cool. Fuck 'em. 
  • Does my infographic hold up? Myyeeaah...sorta. Forget 3, 4, and SCC. We're in a tangent timeline that splits off from the beginning of 1. 
  • Did the trailer spoil all the twists? spoiled a big one, but the details are still important into how it's set up. And there's another twist, but the whole damned internet is trying to spoil it. Watch your step.
  • Even spoiled, I dug the flick though. 
  • Arnie is awesome, Emilia Clarke is all right, Jason Clarke is great, Jai Courtney..mehhh *wavey hand*. But, you won't care. Don't worry.
  • Lotta continuity candy for astute observers with a quick eye.
  • We could have used more of J.K. Simmons, but we'll probably get more of him in sequels.
  • Let's hope those sequels happen. 

Um, yep, that's it without going into spoiler territory.
Go see it.

Up next, Ant-Man.

I may wait for video for this one. I mean, if I saw 3 & 4, neither of which was terribly good, no reason to skip this one...


I bet the actor playing Newt is actually like 29 years old.

I totally missed Robert Patrick. When Pops and the, uh, bad guy bust through the wall in the hospital, he's sitting to the left (talking on cellphone?).

Shit, if I'd known I was supposed to look for Robert Patrick, I would have.
That, and the post-credits scene.
