What did you think of...Terminator: Genisys?

07.03.2015

Director James Cameron's long-running franchise takes another dip in the sci-fi pool this week with TERMINATOR: GENISYS, which hopes to erase the memory of the last few entries, TERMINATOR 3: RISE OF THE MACHINES and TERMINATOR: SALVATION, which didn't fare as well at the box office when compared to its predecesors. 1984's THE TERMINATOR and 1991's TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY are still heralded as the best of the cybernetic apocalypse series, which has struggled to find firm footing since Cameron exited creative involvement. Can this new entry change the fate of the franchise?

THOR: THE DARK WORLD's Alan Taylor takes over directing duties, assembling a cast of new faces to the series, including Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor, Jason Clarke as John Connor, Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese, and returning staple, Arnold Schwarzenegger, as the T-800, which has gone from bad guy to good guy since 91's T2. With complaints that the vigorous marketing has revealed too much and reviews falling mostly middle of the road, it looks like the film will be relying on loyal franchise fans and the PG-13 crowd to pump some blood (i.e. cash) into this new entry. Our own Chris Bumbray gave the film a 5/10 and Eric Walkuski scored it a 7/10 in his video review.

One thing is certain, I enjoyed T-5 waaaay more than "Guardians of the Galaxy", don't understand all the love for this movie...

Not a total disaster!

Not a terrible sequel, but not awesome melt my face good like Terminator 1 or 2. They need to bring back that edgy horror element the first one had mixed with the big action of the second one. While this new one had some cool things about it, it kind of needed to be more mind blowing, the action set pieces need to be show stoppers...not school buses hanging from the edge of the san francisco bridge, which we've seen thousands of times in previous movies. Still, a fun movie, not a total let down.

Great

It was a great movie. The effects looked much better than they did in the trailer. Arnold was in top form and was the star of the film. I've seen it twice already. Can't wait to see it a third.

Love the first hour.

I loved the start. All the retwisitng of the old movies. But when it got down to mainstream Unstoppable Monster chasing The Hero stuff, it fell apart. It failed to make the main baddie convincing, and failed to make Genysis have any real weight. It was a rehash.

What I WANTED was for it to go silly with the Time Travel. Back To The Future 2. Terminators (and maybe extra Sarahs, Kyles, Johns) popping up from all sorts of Alternate Futures. Just get wild and confusing. But they ended

Not horrible

In no way, was this even close to the first 2, but I liked it better than salvation, and definitely kicked rise of the machines, my option was the weakest. It had a good cast, and I liked how they kinda did a x-men days of future past and wiped away what happened in 3 and 4. I didn't care for the john Connor twist, but overall it wasn't horrible. I liked it more than Jurassic world and it was 100 times better than furious 7.... The 2 top movies of the summer. I wish they would of kept out the

I liked it

I thought it was a good film, without a doubt better than the last two films, and a good reset button for the franchise. I really don't understand the negatives I've heard, from the ridiculous crap like the Jai Courtney hate, to people saying the directing was awful, I just cant take these criticism seriously. Especially when they get defensive about others enjoying it.

And fuck that thought that we shouldn't think and lighten up about our movies. Really fuck that. Why should we all become idiots entertained by even more idiotic films?When did stupidity become a virtue? Movies can be intellectual and be fun. Maybe just educate yourselves?

Solid film

Very enjoyable and theoretically very deep. Shame that most will not be able to comprehend the multiple timeline paradox that is sure to happen were time travel possible.

Good film, fun action and of course King Arnold doing his thing!

I have always been a big fan of this franchise, in particular the first two films. I have to say after seeing Terminator Genisys I came out feeling disappointed. For me Arnold Schwarzenegger performance and the visual effects were the highlights of the movie. What I really didn't like though was the storyline, just plain terrible if you ask me and an insult to the first two films in the franchise.

There's a phrase a lot of folks use to describe how to watch big blowy-upy action movies: "Just turn your brain off and enjoy!" I have always disliked this phrase because:
1) It makes no sense, you can't actually turn your brain off.
2) What's so wrong with wanting an action movie that makes you think?
3) It's become a pretty cliche thing to say.

Now, even I have to admit despite my reluctance toward this phrase, I can't deny it describes approaching Terminator Genisys pretty darn well.

Now, even I have to admit despite my reluctance toward this phrase, I can't deny it describes approaching Terminator Genisys pretty darn well. This movie is mired in needlessly convoluted time travel plots. Trying to sort out all the loopy "is this or is this not a paradox?" possibilities may give you an aneurysm. The writers clearly didn't bother to keep track of whether things made sense, so it's probably best if you didn't either.

The writing is sub-par. The first third of Genisys features a ton of references to the original Terminator film, which after a while starts to feel lazy, and many of the jokes peppered throughout fall flat.

Emilia Clarke is actually not bad as Sarah Khaleesi, though compared to her predecessor in the role, she doesn't quite nail it as much. Unfortunately, the new Reese is a major step down. Where Michael Biehn was an energetic desperado, Jai Courtney looks more of a bland lump of clay.

And then of course, there's Arnold. He is pretty much exactly the same, which is really one of his strengths. Although the story doesn't focus on him as much, he still manages to carry each scene he's in, which is good since does literally ALL of the exposition in the film (and there's a lot).

Just missed

There were some good parts to this movie, but they got lazy and scared so they missed the mark. The t-800 should have died to bring a little heart to the end, but would mean no Arnold for the sequel. Having John come back and betray Kyle was lazy, they should have left John out of this story. Still had some redeeming qualities and was worth the price of a ticket.

I don't understand all the negativity. It was a fun two hours for me watching Arnold back in the role that made him famous. The effects were good, the cast wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, and I got to see my all time favorite villain (T-1000) back on the big screen with updated CGI. I hope it does well at the box office!

This and the Die Hard franchise were the cornerstone's of my youth (Throw Point Break in there for good measure, even though it was a one-off...a damn good one at that!), however I have yet to see this one and will probably wait till it comes to rental. I idolize Arnold and I'm sure he's "fantastic" in it and you can't expect to re-create greatness (I think Rambo IV came the closest to being a satisfying chapter worthy for the earlier ones). That being said something has gotten lost (Yes, I know the lost is Hollywood big machine just using its' typical tactics), but the heart is gone. The ability to still apease to us "old school", yet capture the minds of todays' younger crowd, yet I think J.J. may be able to pull that off with Star Wars (TBD).
Same being said for the Die Hard series, I still "refuse" to watch the last one because the formula that made the first 2 work so well (I'm probably in the minority but I hate D.H. with a Vengeance) is non-existent.
Isn't there any originality left? I see today's video games the way we envisioned them growing up. These kids are living what many of those in my era actually had to use their imagination to create. Wouldn't it be nice to get back to that is certain instances rather than bastardizing and bleeding dry our beloved's from yester-year. Hell, at least put the heart back into it.
Sorry fellow Jo'bloer's, I'm in professor right now and decided to go off on a tangent. Time to get back to failing students for "lack of creativity"...mwhahahaha!
Happy 4th!

"Dont judge so much,just enjoy." Sorry but that's probably the worst thing to do... The less you judge, the more you give money to Hollywood, the more they think they can just put out any crap and make money with it and the more we get bad films. I say keep judging in a constructing manner, even movies you love and think are near perfect, that's how quality will improve. Great artists have always asked for criticism and most of them actually thrive on it. I don't know... to me the day you stop

I had a great time too. Sometimes it's just more fun for people to focus on the negative. Even fabricate it. In what world was Terminator 1 and 2 perfect? They weren't, but we loved them anyway. Everything can be improved on, including Genisys; and the only chance of that happening is to support it enough to keep the series in motion.

True, but only if the film doesn't take itself too seriously either, like Mad Max, Die Hard or Indiana Jones. But T1 and T2 were very serious movies in tone, maybe that's why people aren't too happy with Genisys (which I haven't seen so I won't comment on it).

Order of story

I haven't seen what clearly seems to be yet another pile of garbage. I like to think the canon of Teminator goes as follows : T1 then T2 then Sarah Connor Chronicles. If anyone wants to do anything off the story they should jump from that point and just give us a future war already.

Better than expected but not great

Emilia Clarke is no Linda Hamilton and Jai Courtney is definitely no Michael Biehn, however I generally enjoyed the movie which I thought had excellent 3D and some cool action sequences. Disgusted that what could have been a really good twist was given away in the marketing but what can you do? Overall I'd give this a 6/10 that could have been higher with better casting choices. Arnie was great, don't care what anyone says!!!

They really fucked up with giving us away the whole damn plot twist. I thought that wasn't going to be real and it was just a clone of connor but nope. It should just be R and stick to its roots.

As far as Terminator films go, no it doesn't hold a candle to the first two in any way whatsoever, but I wasn't expecting it to. All I wanted was for it to be better than 3 and 4, which were both dreadful, cynical pieces of shit. It managed to be juuust slightly better, so it was good enough to pass my ridiculously low expectations. Why you would set your expectations any higher is beyond me.

TOP 5 WORST MOVIES EVER.

Bear with me for a moment....Look, we all knew the whole time this would never live up to T2... BUT, sometimes a modern sequel gets made to a classic film, and while never nearly living up to the original it can still be a really fun throwback summer popcorn fluff film (I.e. Jurassic World)...I'm also perfectly fine with modern sequels "changing the timeline and resetting the originals" (I.e. Star Trek, & Xmen DoFP), and normally I'm the guy my friends argue with because I always find

BUT, sometimes a modern sequel gets made to a classic film, and while never nearly living up to the original it can still be a really fun throwback summer popcorn fluff film (I.e. Jurassic World)...I'm also perfectly fine with modern sequels "changing the timeline and resetting the originals" (I.e. Star Trek, & Xmen DoFP), and normally I'm the guy my friends argue with because I always find SOMETHING redeeming about these types of cruddy modern sequels...
But this... This was hands down the most HORRIBLE sequel to any movie I've possibly ever seen. Even beyond being a Terminator, this is just a piss poor TERRIBLE movie. Every single aspect of it was THE WORST. Worst Acting, Worst Directing, Worst Writing, Worst CGI, Worst Cinematography, Worst Music Score, Worst Music Soundtrack, Worst EVERYTHING.
Even the idea of changing the timeline of events failed here...by letting kyle and the t-800 live it basically undermines what made the first two so real world gritty, that in war their are casualties, and heros must use this to fuel themselves forward because they understand the greater good... while this one ends with "oh hey everything works out perfect for sarah conner and now her and her boyfriend and dadbot will go have love filled adventures together...GIVE ME A DAMN BREAK.

I literally felt bad for Arnold here...he's trying, he really is, but EVERYTHING around him was just awful, including his own dialogue. The production quality was less than that of a television show. Some of the CGI was the worst I've ever seen... There wasn't even one good shot visually in this thing, it all looked like a photoshopped mess. I walked into the theater assuming I was about to see a mediocre, or even pretty crappy movie...but this movie is an abomination far beyond my worst nightmares and should be aborted. I just can't believe such a bad movie was able to get onto the big screen. I hope to never accidentally fall asleep on my couch some day, only to wake up and find this movie on HBO in the background. From the first shot of the movie this thing was just slop city. I would love to argue in detail with anyone who thought this movie was anything other than terrible...

Goin' against the grain here...

But I really liked it and thought it was lots of fun. I'm a massive fan of this franchise so yes, they will never top T1 and T2, and that's fine, but for what it was I thought this one was a blast. I was smiling like a goon during the first 20 minutes because they did such a good job of recreating those scenes from the first movie and I loved when they changed the events as we know them. It wasn't T2, agreed, and nothing ever will be, but I really liked the fan service and how they expanded on

There were obviously glaring plot holes and the trailer ruins SO much of the movie, but dammit I liked the thing. And I STILL can't figure out why people hate Jai Courtney. He's a pretty good actor and fun to watch, as far as I'm concerned. Turn your brains off and enjoy the easter eggs...this movie ain't that bad!

Awful...

...just awful. So many holes, arnold was underused, no stakes, Jai Courtney is the worst. They made kyle reese such a wuss. Too many one-liners. Only redeeming factor was Emilia Clarke's cute face.

Hardcore fans of the franchise will be disappointed, the rest of the audience will enjoy it for what it is; a soul-less but entertaining summer flick.

I didn't think it was as bad as it's being made out to be. No, it's not anything special in the world of Terminator, but it was a fun movie to watch. The action was entertaining, Arnie was entertaining, I liked the rest of the cast. Overall, it was somewhere between a 6 and a 7.
