Terminator franchise had too many duds in such a short time span and lost all good faith. This new Terminator was actually pretty decent and ppl still didnt care.

As far as the "Terminator went woke" narrative, I dont buy it. T2 is "woke" as well for today's standards. Sarah Conner, from T1 to T2, went from defenseless victim to a weight lifting no nonsense soldier, and it was accepted. That evolution of a female character today would have many dudes online roll their eyes, because that's the social climate we're in.

It's not just the woman turned f*ghter. I'm cool with that. But the whole movie is really political.

Mexican girl working in a factory. Jobs getting replaced by automation

Mexican girl savior

Crossing the wall between US and Mexico

Sarah talking about protecting her womb/ mother Mary. Then realizing she's more than a womb

Well I think a lot of guys wanted to smash Linda Hamilton in T2. But alright.

You're saying just what I'm getting at. And that is that we were being given a gender-bender idol. The whole time.


People, "admired"... a skinny, attractive white lady -- who also seemed, so "tough."

It was the blend of those qualities, that was being idolized.


And so when people are asking why they're still making these movies that nobody is asking for, I just want to place it into consideration, that maybe these are not just "movies." And there could actually be a strong element of propaganda involved.
its the same as sigourney weaver in aliens ....people respected that tough female protagonist thing, i know i do .....don't know about men finding lisa or sigourney s*xually attractive ...maybe for dykes ....i was a kid at the time ...i didnt even care ...but that tough mental attitude in women is a quality i respect

also they are still making terminator films cause idiots that work at studios still think they can make money of a new film .......plus james cameron is involved this time around ....lisa hamiltion hasnt been involved in any of the films since t2, she returned this time because he was involved .....i wouldnt know about any of the other terminator films as i never bothered to watch them and to be honest i dont think i'll bother with this film either

They just need to stop bringing back old sh*t.

And the whole “Terminator travels back through time” sh*t is just tired and contrived at this point. How many times do we have to repeat this same plot?

The only one I liked since T2 was the Christian Bale one because they actually placed the setting in the war versus the machines in the future.

That ‘Get woke Go Broke’ sh*t is real af. When will Hollywood learn to stop raping real geekdom and fans that grew up loving and watching organic protagonists them being what ever color or s*x.

I was just talking about this to my friend back in Cali a few mins ago on ig. It’s a po’ boy festival in SF going on rn and she put up a pic of the sandwhich instead ig stamps a ‘sensitive content’ label on it so it automatically makes my head go into the gutter like wtf is this. It’s a closeup of a fuggin sandwich.

The West World mainly America has become like Bette Midler and Meryl Streep in death Becomes her with Bruce willis just two rotted disgusting corps beating eachother to death under a pretty veneer of paint. No adult human with a working brain is gonna keep buying all the bs.

Hollywood is pandering heavy now and actung pretty and sweet like they care meanwhile they are a rotting corpse bowing down to those that don’t care or will back up all their lobbying and agenda with cash. All these hashtag warriors ain’t doing sh*t but making sh*t worse.

Maybe in part. But the hidden themes that are so commonly involved with so many of these films, can't be explained in accord with a simply financial motive.

America is not knocking down Hollywood's doors, saying "more lgbt themes please."

The percentage of the population that is gay or transgender, is relatively small in proportion to the entire movie audience. So it makes no sense from a financial perspective, to consistently resort to appealing towards such a small minority. And that is how it can be seen that this is propaganda.

The movie was good tho, almost had a heart attack from the none stop action in the movie

When ppl gonna realize that Marvel and DC movies are k*lling the movie industry, specially first week numbers, ppl will go and watch the joker ( a very good movie ) for the 5th time instead of going to see the Terminator

Nobody gives a fu*k about Terminator. That's why the attempted tv series have failed, every year or two. That's an example. They'll recoup globally though. It's just like when major sci fi's flop in the states, but go crazy overseas. Pacific rim and sh*t is an example.

Seriously, why are they even making these anymore, no one gives a fu*k about this franchise anymore. The box office numbers indicate that.

For me it'll always be T1 and T2 Judgment Day, the others don't exist
Idk, look at the resident evil franchise... sh*t been whack and they still someone made lots of movies that no one asked for... and made $$$ doing it

Or maybe people are just burned out with every movie being a soft "Force Awakens-esque" reboot.

Also, Sarah's evolution from the end of T1 to T2 felt more organic. She felt like a real person. She wasn't some 60+ year old woman saying catchphrases while firing a rocket launcher lol

And let's be real here. The producers are just trying to appeal to different demographics to sell the movie to people that typically dont care about the Terminator series. That's it.

hidden themes man your strung up on lgbt themes ....what in t1 and t2 had those subversive themes?

just cause linda hamilton played the lead role in an action film? ....half of the population is female, why not have a female protagonist in an action film? hollywood isnt interested in making action films with female leads either thats something james cameron pushed for ....i don't know or think any of the other terminator films had females in the lead role either

why does everyone act like 3 was that bad?

they can do other ones it just needs to be deeper into the terminator world and universe. something besides arnold. and if they do arnold they need to expand on where the design came from and the evolution. Wider side stories they could get into like a cybertron earth

The problem you, got a junkie terminator, lesbo, no it all. Not interesting. They have never established suitable replacements for Arnie and linda to continue the story. The robots send back these advance robot that cant beat the proto type? What kind of sense does this make. This new terminator should have been done than T2 terminator and he wasnt. The womens lib sh*t k*lled this movie, along with a awful script. The only thing going for it was it had a dope action packed intro.

I need to ask everybody in here some serious questions, because this is outrageous.


1. Would you smash the person in that picture?

2. Did you want to smash it, back in the 90s?

3. Do ANY of the women you know... turn into males, with age??
The comic Maronzio Vance once said that white women morph into white men in middle age.

No black people, pushing the feminist and lgbtq agenda heavy in a fu*king sci fi action movie. Glad this movie flops and the harriet movie that turned into softcore ghetto gaggers bedw*nch fan fiction also flopped starring a bald british bedw*nch who hates black Americans.
Yeah because t2 didn't have a strong female lead...
