Sure you mean Judgement Day, and not Salvation?

Re: Terminator Judgment Day

Roger Ebert's review of Salvation is amusing, at least

One of Hollywood's oldest axioms teaches us: The story comes first. Watching "Terminator Salvation," it occurred to me that in the new Hollywood, the storyboard comes first.

That's a funny line, but "new" Hollywood? Haven't people been making that criticism for like 30 yrs?

Re: Terminator Judgment Day

I had a good time, don't get me wrong. But it was really not a quality movie here. I'm disappointed in McG. I love Supernatural on television and I was expecting a lot more.

Re: Terminator Judgment Day

There's a reason I enjoy the first two Terminator movies: they're compelling. I take it this new one is not compelling but just an almost generic action flick?

Re: Terminator Judgment Day

Can you say "obligatory mute-child who won't speak because of traumatic experience" cliche a few times for me?

Re: Terminator Judgment Day

What kind of self-respecting man calls himself McG?
