Today's film, #1, 1984's "The Terminator," because they're showing T2 at the movie theatre this week and it probably works better if I've seen T1 recently.

Tonight's film, #3! 1991's "Terminator 2: Judgment Day"! In the movie theatre, so: I'll be back?

Way funnier than the first one, ergo, way better than the first one.

Saddest thumbs up in cinematic history.

A slight issue I can see with the Terminator franchise is that T2 serves as a pretty solid ending? And yet I am aware of at least four additional films.

Show thread

@Alexis I hope you know to stop there! (I've heard Dark Fate might be worthwhile, but otherwise, uhhh)

@naga I already saw Genisys with friends in London, so yeah, uhhh, I know what you mean.

But nothing wrong with a dumb popcorn movie!

@naga I'd only seen the first one beforehand, and lemme tell ya, I bet it makes exactly as much sense *with* all the context.

@Alexis Dark Fate apparently pulls the Highlander trick and ignores the intervening ones (each Highlander sequel, and even the TV series, spun off directly from the first movie)

@Alexis as someone who hasn't seen a single Terminator film, my understanding is: time travel?

@The_T I've *seen* the fourth one, and don't remember a thing about besides Matt Smith playing Skynet, so: I guess?? Probably??

@Alexis sigh should I just go ahead and watch these as well

@Alexis there's a TV series also isn't there. is it Joss Whedon??

@The_T I don't think it's one of his, and I also don't think I need a mid-2000s Fox version of this franchise in my life, honestly.

@Alexis The post-T2 movies are the very definition of "wibbly-wobbily timey-wimey"

@Alexis All Terminator movies are just remakes of the first one.
