im going to say this right now i loved terminator 3 just as much as the first 2 films i liked the idea of a Female villain (the TX )
and i liked seeing Arnie being the Terminator again for the 3rd time was perfect and Genisis ignored this movie too aswell as the first 2 where is kate Browster/conner in Genisis
i liked Termonator 1 2 and 3 the same way
Better than Gynisys? I beg to differ. If you look at the how skynet can use time to it's advantage Gynisys makes a lot of sense. Someone actually made a great video detailing the Terminator Timeline. I just watched T3 and have to admit it really isn't that bad of a movie, as I remember. Lots of dumb parts but equally great ones as well. I thought it was shot extremely well and that really has the T2 vibe to it. I thought it was too much of a rehash of T2.
in the movie John Connor breaks into the pet hospital to get some drugs because he was injured not because he was an addict. i thought the movie was ok except for the Brewster chick. and Loken's ass was epic!!!
T3 was originally my favorite one of the franchise because I thought it was visually appealing and action packed. Once I started to rewatch the other films and watching video analyses that's when I realized damn this was actually not as great compared to the first 2. I still love t3 but I understand now why it was never as great as the first 2
I liked the first three films. but the second and third films had plot holes. the T1000 and TX had no human skin to avoid being destroyed in the Time Displacement Device. They are metal that looks like skin, clothes etc.
Thank you. In some ways I think number three hits the right balance, the Terminator in number seemed too human and too much of a friend to young John Conner.
As discussed, I did enjoy how this shows the beginning of judgement day and John leading the resistance from the bunker.
When it comes to actors, you really seem to take the attitude of “if you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all” you deservedly compliment the quality of their performances and careers, but almost never have anything bad to say about anybody. This isn’t a complaint, it’s just different to most reviewers. I think it’s why I like your channel.
The humor killed it for me, I can’t stand stupid jokes like the sunglasses and the talk to the hand, boobie inflation, the cringeworthy seen where they talk about breeding. None of the above made the movie better so why put them in. The first 2 where hard science fiction thrillers. Dark depressing and scary. I don’t know wtf 3 was sopose to be.
I think whoever made T3, whether its this film or a hypothetical different one, it would be doomed for criticism and "failure" to measure up to its predecessor. T2 is just such an epic film, theres no way really any film in its genre can measure up or exceed what T2 did. Thank you for this review, this is actually very true. It is a decent movie, that I thought some of the action with the trucks chasing with the crane was very well done
I liked T3 because it was a definitive ending for the trilogy. It proofed what a fixed point the robot apocalypse was and that they couldn’t stop it. The robot chick was badass too. I really don’t know why everyone dismisses this movie. Salvation should have started a new trilogy set in the future, by T2 fanboys and all 🤷♂️ I personally think this was my favorite Terminator movie.
Spot on. T3 was the equivalent of NIN's With Teeth album (which came out just two years later); not as good as the earlier installments, but decent in its own right, and a hell of lot better than the ones that came after. A step down, but not out.
I don't need to watch you dull commentary. YES, it was THAT bad. It wasn't good. I've seen it 4 times (friend likes it) and it sucks and gets worse each time. I don't need some dude called Dave Cullen to tell me what i know.
For the love of...
FOR THE LAST TIME :
CSM-101 - as in TERMINATOR SKINS THAT LOOK LIKE ARNIE.
* *THERE ARE NO T-101S.* *
It's shown on The Terminator box art on Arnie's sunnies: "CSM-101"
It's stated in T2.
"Cyberdyne Systems Model 101."
*THAT IS ARNIE'S LOOK.*
The robots inside the Arnie skins are T-800s (and a T-850 in T3).
*YOU'VE HAD 34 YEARS NOW.*
Just watching this I didn't realize how close the actor that played john looks to Kyle Reese. They could've played with that and shown he was Kyle's son or foreshadowed his relationship with kyle and the future war. Honestly this movies depiction of robots felt too realistic as funny as that sounds. It was grounded heavily in realism like t1 and lacked spectacle as shown in t2.
Largest problem T3 had ( and still has ) is what movie had to follow - like the review states anyway. It would be nearly impossible to top T2, so they tried to take the route of a movie that takes itself less seriously and has a lighter tone overall, superficially at least - and at the same time it deliberately copies T2 in many aspects. IMO it failed in both, firstly because a lighter tone just doesn't fit well in a Terminator movie, and secondly any copying of T2 is ... just tasteless and simply badly done. Nevertheless - If seen as a movie not connected to the general Terminator legend ... It's OK. Especially the 3rd act of the movie - after TX visits Skynet HQ - Its decen't at least. The problem is that it's impossible not to connect it to the whole Terminator story, and that's its failing.
They should’ve ended the franchise here then when Arnold became governor of California we never would see another terminator for quite some time until of course salvation which if you twisted my arm I can handle but Christian bakes performance and lights” fiasco withdrew me he needs to stop doing his Batman voice it’s fucking awful and genesys to me is a piece of shit that doesn’t exist neither does this new feminist movie / Hollywood should really stop destroying franchises
T3, T4 and T5 should just be deleted/throwed in to the garbage can. The T6 must have VERY LITTLE CGI and do most practical effects, the serious and dark feeling in it, the 80s/early 90s background music, good actors, more serious horror-violence, otherwise it will fail.
I would say it was an incredible movie, true hard to follow T2, but I think it perfectly realigned the story, cuz when we asked "why are the terminators back?" It actually gave a good reason, "Look judgement day can't be stopped kid, it can only be delayed" and that's where Genisys went wrong, we could clearly see that the only reason the terminators were back is cuz someone wanted to make easy money.
T3 is actually very mature in explaining how sometimes we just have to accept some bad things happen and we can't run away from them. T4 was good, just not very thought provoking but in my opinion they should have followed on from there.
I hate to say it but I think Cameron is just trying to make money as well, and his film is gonna suck because of it, the proof is that when T3 came out he said it was a great film and only now he is saying that it wasn't.
A former Mr. Olympia with a AMT long slide hard baller in T-1 was intimidating. The later Terminators were not the same. Arnold was getting older and not as jacked. A former model, etc. It just wasn't the same! Oh well!
Remove some (most) of the comedic scene, and it would be a very good terminator sequel to T2
That said I still liked this movie for what it was, -
Terminator salvation could have been far and away much better, in representing the future war with sky net - even the small scenes in T1 &T2 where superior in showing the war between us and the machines that salvation,
but Genesis was complete garbage (except for Arnold he was awesome )
The girl Terminator was nice on the eyes, story was meh. I remember being just let down by this film. I left the cinema that night thinking "well that was a waste of 2 hours". I really did not get much out of it. Maybe I expected more.
funny how you say john has a drug problem because he's in the animal shelter looking for meds so he can fix up a wound... literally nothing except a throw away line that indicates he's a drug addict. did you even rewatch the movie for this or did you just read some shit?
I recommend this video, https://youtu.be/I7mp-_7JseM it's a comparison video of the terminator 2 and terminator 3.
Only problem is it's not in English and the auto translator is not quite right but its fun watching the pictures and see the similarity in both movies.
Agree 100% with your option piece. The last 5 mins of the movie does it overall justice. Nothing and I do mean nothing can or will EVER top T2. The franchise needs to be closed out. It’s turning into Police Academy.
If I was in charge I would have had Terminator 3 set in the future and show how John became the saviour of humanity and how he met Kyle Reese and reprogrammed the T-800 from T2. In other words a better version of Salvation which was ok and had some good ideas.
It was completely unnecessary, but otherwise not terribly bad beyond the the protagonist's rather dumb decision to "live off the grid" in a big-ass city around people who might recognize him and not disappearing into rural areas that are FAR less likely to get nuked if things still go badly.
