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.


Fair enough, dude. I remember very little of T3 onwards. Haven't even bothered with Genesys.

I like how in the opening sequence he ferro-morphs along the piece of rebar onto the bonnet of the truck because that definitely seems like the most efficient way that an indestructible machine could get out of a car.

The effects of the guy jumping from the truck look Matrix Reloaded/Spiderman era quality. Like a horrible old video game FMV. Dreadful.

I've not seen a Terminator film since T3, and will certainly give this a miss. Are Terminator films still popular? They keep making new and awful ones, so I guess people still see them for some reason. I'm surprised they haven't done a new TV series by now.

I noticed that. It would have been far easier and a hell of a lot quicker if he had just climbed out of the window. :lol:

Hopefully it is just a dodgy trailer and the movie is ok, but I am not holding out much hope.

To be fair to that scene, I think it was trying to show that he was able to keep his skeleton in the driving seat driving the truck, while the "rest" of him morphed onto the bonnet and then jumped. So perhaps he can make a copy of himself? I dunno, it wasn't very clear.

That makes more sense, I didn’t think of that. I guess that’s the next level up from a T-1000, this one can morph and make copies.

The movie still looked gooseberry fool from that trailer though.

Yeh this Terminator model can make copies of itself.

It looks like it used the metal from that iron bar as the material to create the copy from. Not sure how that bar was enough to create an entire robot, but I can see them using that to limit how powerful this skill would be so they don't write themselves in to a corner with an unbeatable killing machine like Matrix's Agent Smith.

Sonic movie delayed until February 2020.

Brexit, trump visit and sonic in the same year may have proved too much for society to take.

I don't think this is the case. From the trailer it looks like it's a normal Terminator exoskeleton with a skin made from the same stuff as the T1000, a dual-entity. It used the rebar to transmit it's second half outside the truck.

I think it looked fine. Trailer CGI is always WIP so it'll get polished before release.

Taika Waititi is directing Akira released in 2021. Seems like the perfect match.

I am so glad employee wellbeing has been made a priority over gnashing fans by delaying the film instead of demanding thousands of hours of overtime from already overburdened segment of the film industry. I wasn't expecting that. I hope there was some unionisation or solidarity involved; could have been facing mass walk-outs or resignations from artists having to do the same thing all over again because of some terrible focus group testing than undoubtedly predicted as well.

Most VFX artists are nerds and they absolutely would have known about Sonic from the 90s and known that it was just not right.

Thing with the sonic trailer is.... It's terrible. Even if sonic looked Detective Pikachu levels of amazing , the feel of the film is junk.

Rampage (based on the game) was bloody awesome, fantastic effects, likeable cast, talented FX heavy director, a lot of heart and it loved the 3 central monsters making them take a large amount of the films running time.

Sonic has been made with some ring sound effects to make people go, ah nostalgia, it's the ghost busters remake all over again.

Ah yea, on a rewatch I can see that.

So if he left his skeleton behind to drive the truck, why does it immediately lose control when he jumps?

strawberry floatin shit-ass robot driver.

So I read this as Alita not Akira. Slightly less enthused about that.

I'm assuming that's going to be a live action remake?

Why on earth do we need a live action remake of Akira? Just enjoy the original FFS!

I think it's going to be based on the manga and not the original classic.

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.


I haven't a strawberry floating clue what's going on in that trailer, is this a sequel to Genisysor yet another semi reboot? why is Sarah elderly again? why is the CGI so gooseberry fool?

I'm also now going to refer to the new female terminator as the LGBT-1000.

Also why bothered using a gooseberry fool cover version of The Hunter by Bjork when the original version would have worked far better?
