Streets ahead! Those other films after are streets behind.
Seriously, thanks for this video. I feel like the only Loon that thinks this movie was good and will definitely be better than Cameron T3 in 2018
Warning from the future: Appreciate the T-X as Kristana Loken will be the last SEXY, ATHLETICALLY FEMININE WOMAN the franchise will have. Look at the T6 promo photo, you know-the 1 where Linda looks like a dying school principal who is stuck with a trans-student & an immigrant kid who is pissing away her free education-& take heed. There is no fate except what the sjws make.
One thing I really liked about this movie was when John and Kate realized Crystal Peak was not the core but a fallout shelter. We see they actually think for a moment about killing themselves and ending their suffering. That moment ends when someone calls on the radio for help. Realizing that they could do something FOR THAT PERSON, they did the selfless action and chose to help others rather than give up. It would have been easier to just die. But, "when it comes time to choose between what is right and what is easy..." ;)
The question I always had was why would Skynet find it necessary to send a female looking cyborg back in time. For what purpose? The terminatrix didn't try to really infiltrate too much, and just went along destroying and blasting things in it's way. T2 ended the franchise well, with an unknown future. It is a great action movie, though.
Underrated...I respectfully disagree but I do agree it's unfairly criticised while not a big fan of the direction t3 took the franchise it still a fairly ok movie I watched it not long ago it didn't hold my attention as well as the 1st 2 movies but was entertaining none the less.........anyway next movie batman and robin please
I enjoy T-1,2,3...& the Sarah Connor Chronicles, i just can't bring myself to accept T4 & i might get T5 on Clearance, but each movie is a slightly overlap alternative & can be independent. Plus Mr Cullen forgoes mentioning the Director of T3 was the Men in Black series director.
This film would have been much better if they didn’t include all the humour as you said, yes he walks into a bar at the beginning, during ladies night with a male stripper...then he puts the pink glasses on before taking them off! compared to the brutality of the 90’s bar scene in T2 it fails miserably! I thought kristana loken played the TX very well and she was a good terminator, nick stahl was a crap John Connor, far to whiney and irritating!
I'd still place this movie above the first Terminator. While the T-X is by far the weakest vilain I think the movie managed to pull off very well the grim reality of the story, that there was no way for them to escape Judgement Day and everything they fought to preserve would eventually be destroyed.
I realized that The Terminator is made in a different way and style to Terminator 2 and the other sequels. The Terminator is a true Science Fiction Survival Horror film. Arnold plays the role of the Terminator in the first film superbly. The first film is truly terrifying.
Terminator 2, as good as it is, is not in the same dark style. As good as Robert Patrick played T-1000, he wasn't as terrifying as Arnold in the first film.
I watched and thought of it as "not too bad" at first... until I left the theater! Then, it hit me blank in the face: THIS PLOTLINE WAS IMPOSSIBLE to begin with. The main flaw in the movie was to make skynet a computer software instead of a computer (as stated in the original film). So by launching a nuclear war, it basically killed itself due to the EMP blast. Pretty stupid isn't it? Worst, by launching a full nuclear blast, it whipped out any industrial and power bases it'd require to build its forces... (Sight) Why the producer did not get inspired by the comic plot :Robocop Vs. Terminator??? it would have been a much better story. So, T3 = very bad in my book. Sorry.
I loved T3. It's not perfect, but nothing is, so that really doesn't need to be said. And it doesn't equal T2, but as you said, very few movies do. But it's still solid and a worthy addition to the franchise.
Good points, but this movie was pretty boring overall. The worst part was the Johns character, i personaly cannot relate to see the continuity from T2's john in any meaning full way. I keep thinking he was the wrong actor for the job.
Pretty much a very well done B movie that did great with what it had been allowed to work with plus so much more that could have been done so much better with this movie.
But don’t get me wrong I definitely enjoyed this movie by all means.
T3 is pure shit, and so the whole franchise concept after T2. you see the matrix, rigth? that movie had to be T3, without all that new age trash, john connor instead of neo and kyle reese instead of morpheus.
Yeah... I can't really agree. I mean, maybe the movie wasn't terrible, but it did mark the beginning of the thing that absolutely _kills_ the franchise for me: the terminators are no longer threatening.
The first film is actually my favorite, and that's largely because it constantly reinforces that this inhuman killing machine has the strength and durability of an industrial clamp. If it ever catches you, your fragile human flesh is done. Even missing three limbs and crawling on its one remaining arm, it remains a serious threat.
T2 had another kind of threat with the T-1000. Not as densely immovable as the T-800, but still vastly superior to human flesh, ever-shifting, totally unstoppable.
In T3... the T-X has multiple opportunities to kill John, and just... doesn't. It began the trend for later movies in which the terminators don't kill their victims, they just toss them around the room for a bit while the protagonist scrambles to find some bullshit excuse to win the fight. To me, it completely undermines the point of the franchise: the terminators are unstoppable.
PS: This video goes into more depth on this point: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3r1fd5NHHfM
Terminator 2 had the best of everything. Terminator 1 was just good(they did what they could in 1985, police station scene was scary cool..., amazing for the time) Terminator 3 was the worst, just extremely corny is the problem. I wish Arnold wasn't in it. Terminator Salvation was Ok, it's not easy to paint the picture of the future... I like all the other terminators, but last ones story was kind of stupid, but showed glimmer of the 90s feel I liked. The T-1000 Asian dude was excellent in that movie. The girl actor was great but she didn't really fill the part the same way. She had fake feeling, acting hard, (I know its a young actor) Linda Hamilton sold the part amazingly well. So I am glad they are bringing her back. (Zero complaints on Arnold acting on any of them. But be nice if he pointed out Terminator 3 faults and stopped it lol, I wish, so it would of never showed light of day, lol.)
Thank you for pointing out that the terminator model is of the 800 series. it may be designated csm -101, but it's an 800 series. lately reviewers are calling it a 101 due to the error of how it's said in T2.
Terminator 3 is a B list popcorn movie; nothing more or less. Which would be passable as a stand alone movie but because it didn't match the first two it's disappointing (like with Godfather 3 and Spiderman 3.) Ofc Genisys was worse, which is on par with films like Batman and Robin and Independance day 2.
"he's developed a drug problem" - Where'd you get that from? Bruster accuses him of being a "junkie" but we know this is false, he's trying to find pain medication for his leg from his bike accident at the beginning of the film, not score a hit. Other than that, there is no implication that he has taken any other form of drug.
i can't stand when people say "over a decade has passed since T2"
T2 happened in 1995, T3 happened in 2004
and whatever this movie gets wrong, John was 10 in T2, not 13. even TSCC stated he was 12 instead of 10
Correction: Skynet did not become self aware after merging with the "virus". John stated specifically that Skynet is the virus. This was explained in a deleted scene where, upon arrival to the "present", the T-X immediately uploads Skynet into an ATM. That was the source of the "Virus".
First off, I wanna say that I personally loved this movie. I remember watching it on theater when I was in College. I grew up loving the franchise. But, I can honestly say that this film seems not that important. I think the reason why they made the ending like that is to open up sequels in the future. T2's ending was perfect. No loose ends. Cyberdyne shut down and the last two T chips destroyed. But they wanna milk the series further considering T2 was so good and it became too popular as time goes. The studios were probably like yeah lets make a new one. Easy money!
And there is also that trend that I kind disliked about the series, all villain terminators except the first one are just carbon copy or just a ripoff of T1000. The shape shifting, various abilities, the thin body. Seriously even the T3000 is just the same. Why can't they make an original Terminator that is different from the T1000? They run out of ideas? lol
But T3 I say is an enjoyable flick. It does not have to measure up to T2. It was more like a reimagining of T2 and added a bit new elements. It is more like a portal for future sequels. And guess what? They did it just that.
T2 is deffinitely my favourite. Nothing will beat the first and second for me !
But i have to say T3 comparred with T4 and T5 is great in my opinion looking back now !
At least you could actually still understand the story up untill then.
But T4 and T5 are so over the top and confusing now and way too much new technology.
It doesnt even feel like the same francize anymore its almost like its another different movie.
T3 in my opinion was the last one that still felt very close and connected to the original story.
It has its flaws yes but i totally agree that its underrated
The movie was meh, but the biggest sin was throwing away free will and making judgment day inevitable. Free will, and the validity and necessity of human struggle for a better future was absolutely integral to the first two films, and something that at least I find to be something of intrinsic value and jibes with my own values. T3 just throws all that shit out, and says "ha ha, just kidding, it's all fate, and there isn't shit you can do about it." That destroys all the previous tension and sacrifice. Just a horrible storytelling decision.
When this came out, people were telling me that it was bad and I'd ask them what they expected since James Cameron didn't direct it. The usual response was "Who's James Cameron?" - that's not a joke. When I saw it, I was impressed but mostly because the end actually had balls. I was expecting the typical "We saved humanity... but for how long?" ending.
You hit the nail on every point. While some of its jokes were too hockey, everything else about this film felt right. I liked that the ending was bittersweet and I loved how the film adapted today's current tech-savy times, thereby making it IMPOSSIBLE to stop Judgement Day. I think people gave this film too much heat simply because it did not have James Cameron back nor Linda Hamilton. I grew up with this series, so I understood the backlash. Still, I ended up enjoying this film a lot. It had a strong narrative with some strong homage moments while doing its own thing. I can't say the same for Genysis, which strayed TOO far to the camp side and offered nothing new. I was especially pissed at how Reese got rectonned and turned from a tragic hero to derpy beefy buffoon. :/
to me this is like saying the dark knight rises is so much worse than the dark knight, i dont ever think it could eve have competed its an ok movie but the dark knight was so insanely good, i dont know that much actually competes with it its not a fair compairson
The jokes and humor should had been cut and put in director cut, like they did with T2. It's supposed to be a thriller, if not horror (T1 is horror mind you). So it went from horror to sci-fi action into comedy? That's why I hate T3 so much. It's a comedy, so yeah it sucks.
Aside from the logical problems of paradox, T3 utterly trashed the character of John Connor. After the "role reversal" between John and Sarah in T2, I cannot see John becoming such a fraidy-cat, "living off the grid" and generally staying in southern California when that is one area he should be avoiding. If anything, he should have been skipping all over the world to make himself harder to find. He should also have been keeping up with computer tech. John was not afraid of the machines, he *knew* how to deal with them on their playing field. We heard it from Reese in the first movie.
As with Phantom Menace, heroism is reduced to dumb luck: John becomes the "leader" because he happened to be the guy who picked up the microphone at the bunker. The character Kate Brewster was the only redeeming aspect of a movie that was otherwise third-rate formula gimmicks and gags.
