21 minutes. It drops at 14:00 :toot:



strawberry floating hell that looks abysmal.

What's with all the slow-mo gooseberry fool during the chase, the forearms grazing clip is ridiculous.

strawberry floats sake. Have to wait until this evening to watch this, disappointed to hear it's not what we were hoping for.

They need to just stop making Terminator movies, nothing is going to come close to the first 2 films.

It might just be a bad cut for the trailer, but I'm sure Tim Miller was involved with it rather than an external company that makes trailers.

The music was bland (they literally have one of the most famous themes in cinema and didn't use it :fp: ) and the CGI is terribad, although I guess there's still time for that to be finished.

Even the intro theme has gotten gradually worse since the second movie.

As for the CGI, this is another case of using CGI when there's probably no need.

CGI dinosaurs and liquid metal men are great, CGI arm grazes are not.

Terrible trailer but between the shite it does hint at a movie that might be half decent.

Linda Hamilton looked like she can still kick ass.

Otherwise it looked liked Genesys 2. :dread:

Generic cgi just doesn't work with the terminator. A cgi free terminator 1 stalker film would work so much better. Cgi would only work if if was the groundbreaking level seen in terminator 2.

I'll go and see it but I'm expecting it to be forgettable popcorn fun.

It looks like unforgettable but slightly enjoyable romp like Genysis.

Yeah i enjoyed Genysis. It’s a perfect film when you’re ill and don’t need to switch on completely to watch.

It's like they didn't spend any time watching T1 and T2 and seeing what makes them so strawberry floating good :fp:

- It's mostly just scenes packed with CGI - including the worst of all in a live-action film - a CGI camera (as in the action is "filmed" from impossible places and at impossible angles, all CGI). Dreadful and makes you instantly think "that's CGI".

- bland characters - the bad terminator just looks like some guy. Think how about intense and sinister Robert Patrick was as the T-1000, then compare him to whoever the strawberry float that guy is, just no comparison. Utterly forgettable. The blonde woman - another Marcus Wright character by the looks of it, but she's got a funky short haircut so must be a badass - cue airflip on a moving truck.

- Linda Hamilton hip-firing an automatic shotgun because it looks cool. Sarah Connor should be using that weapon properly. In T2, even after she lost her cool a bit and went full-auto on Dyson's office she still kept looking down the sight, there was no cinematic hip-firing.

- Massive cargo-plane based set-piece, just looked totally over the top and unrealistic. Again, CGI and the CGI camera just make it look rubbish.

- the enemy terminator again being less advanced than the T-1000, in that it has a skeletal structure. This was a problem in T3 as well - why would Skynet send back a less capable model, why not just send back another T-1000? It's because the writers can't think of anything more advanced and dangerous than the perfect enemy that was the T-1000.

- trailer music was awful, why not just use the Terminator theme or a variation on it?

Blurgh, I strawberry floating hate it already.

I also realise I'm being quite nit-picky, but this is Terminator we're talking about. It's a legendary IP, it's a cultural touchstone. I grew up loving T1 and T2, they're part of my childhood. They should be going for perfection, they should be trying to emulate one of the best sequels ever made, they should know this kind of stuff.

Didn't T3 have a Terminator that could do everything a T-1000 could do and also make itself gun hands?

Well that was a bit meh. Looks like a bog standard 90s summer blockbuster. Didn’t tickle my balls at all.

Where’s the terminator music at?. Like really. :| Wtf was I listening too?.

That’s not Terminator music. That’s a song, I’ll shout @ something if Junkie XL strawberry floats up the score for this film. Really don’t know why they can’t wheel out Brad Fiedel out of retirement, he won’t be doing much else.

It cannot be worse than Genesis.

The T-X had an endo-skeleton and couldn't morph like the T-1000 could. It wasn't as good at infiltration, could never have done the old black-and-white-laminate-floor switcheroo that we saw in T2. Plus its weapons were fragile and it relied on boobs too much.
