T-800: the new Alpha
Terminator Genisys) is not as bad as I expected it to be. First things first: I didn't like the film. It's fine and fun if you haven't seen The Terminator or Terminator 2: Judgment day.... but, let's face it, this one is a mix of both films, like a remake but without being a remake... a prequel and a sequel at the same time... and the plot is nonsense. The actor who plays Reese just doesn't get it, I'm not gonna start with the actress who plays Sarah Connor. I mean, there is no sparkle between them. I'm not saying they're bad actors but... Linda Hamilton and Michael Biehn are Sarah and Reese. On the other hand, I did like the film. I know, I get it, it's a contradiction. But the idea is not bad: John Connor as the bad guy trying to save Skynet! (nonsense!) The Future war isn't over! The infiltration unit T-800 is old... but not obsolete! Schwarzenegger is great as model T-800, just love it! Furthermore, while watching Jurassic World (loved the film, Blue is my favorite, thanks Tidusin for your great post), one of the characters talked about using drones for militar purposes, and it came to me the idea: if a human can be the velociraptor Alpha, why not a Terminator? Skynet may use the Velociraptors to exterminate the humans. Welcome to the nonsense world!
