Well...whats the point in us discussing it. You found what many consider to be a tremendously exciting sequence - the canal chase - boring. It seems clear from the outset you won't agree with much of anything we would say is incredible about it.

Well it was boring after I watched Robocop twice back to back. Its still a cool sequence but one that I realize I have to be in a nostalgic mood for to truly enjoy.

T2 blew me away in 1991. I really am curious to hear why you still think its a great movie by today's standards. Robocop is, T1 and Aliens are. Not so much T2 for me anymore.

I've found that I really prefer Cameron's theatrical versions to his Director's cuts. Aliens and T2 flow far better as action films w/o the extra character development as strange as that sounds. To me it's like I've seen them once, I know theres a scene where she talks to Reese but it's something I don't feel the need to see ever again when I watch T2, just get to the point and blow something up. Same with Aliens, the extra 5 mins of Newt's family discovering the ship, it's nice to know it's there and that's how it all happens, but after watching it once, it's a really boring 5 minutes I never need to revisit. Just get to the Marines already.

But yea t1>t2 by alot. Kyle Reese and Michael Beihn over Furlong and the most annoying voice in history anyday. And Arnold as a bad guys way cooler too. Nothing in the franchise came close to the police station.

By todays standards it holds up fine. What more recent sci-actioner dates it? Some bad haircuts in it maybe but thats about it.

Yes its essentially a bigger budget T1 retread in many action scenes and scenarios.... but I don't have a huge problem with that I have to say.

Arnold as the good guy - I don't have a problem with it, at least not in this film because I feel it was done plausibly. However this was the first and only film where it worked. By T3 it was already Arnold as a caricature of himself and lets play it for laughs - without the plausible context for humour that there was in T2 - so that it completely jars in this film.

I also disagree with what you said about the T-1000 being less charismatic - he was just different. The whole point was for him to be a contrast to Arnold and it worked very well IMO. His behaviour was no less Terminatory than Arnie in T1, so that only leaves his appearance - but again that was deliberate. The T-1000 combined 2 of Camerons original ideas when he was making T1 that he ended up not going with - a more ordinary looking human disguise that could truly infiltrate and the liquid metal aspect.

I don't know what else to talk about. Anything you want to take up?

5/10 is pretty average though bud. Still I think this is the lowest I've ever seen you rate a movie. :lol

Anyway make sure you watch the actual interviews if you haven't. THey use to run those back to back with those "actual autopsies" show on HBO at like 2 am back when I first started drinking 8 years ago and I remember coming home from the bar and watching them, he left quite the impression. The real Iceman is intense and crazy but he does embellish a bit which isn't a surprise.

Oh I don't mean that the "styles" of 1991 date it. That's why I mentioned T1, Aliens, and Robocop, all heavily entrenched a lot of mid 80's trappings and so forth. But after dozens of viewings they're still great, engaging films.

T2 relied more heavily on the visual effects of the time and the "surprise" of Arnold being the good guy that time around. And I totally admit, that bit was brilliant. But after the novelty wears off it just becomes a sanitized "The Terminator" that borderline makes fun of itself with the "Bad to the Bone," silly sunglass scene from your avatar, and "I need a vacation."

Imagine if Robocop had said that when Lewis rescued him from the SWAT team. Lame.

I had to give it a 5 for Shannon alone. That is a pretty bad score in my eye. It would probably be a big fat zero if it wasn't for him.

I read the book by Phillip Carlo some years ago now and I was completely engrossed in it. The film does not even come close to the book. It spent all of about three seconds exploring his upbringing which I found shocking. That in my view shaped the beast he went on to become and deserved a much bigger play in the movie. I don't think it really went on to show Richard for his true colours either. In the book he was said to have battered his wife on several occasions, but this was never explored. All in all the film was ever so losely based on this man in my opinion. I saw threads of similarities but not enough that you could call this a biographical film of Richard Kuklinski aka The Iceman.

Yeah pretty much anything you have a problem with I personally don't. Perhaps its the age I was when I saw it first - bout John Connors age - and I'm not even sure if I had already seen T1 by that point to compare it to. Even if I had its likely at that age I would have preferred T2 merely because of the better special effects and good guy Arnie. Now I appreciate T1 as the original and better paced film but I never lost my love of T2. I think they compliment each other nicely and Cameron was right to leave it at that.....or he could have done a future war 2029 film detailing the events leading up to the Terminators being sent back through time. T3, as it was done, was clearly pointless.

My main problem with T2 at this point is that it just doesn't have any ball.s It wanted to be a preachy summer popcorn movie and Cameron chose to contrive a lot of crap to make it so.

Why didn't the T800 kill any bikers in the bar? Because Cameron didn't want to create a "moral quandry" in having the good guy murder people. Who cares! He's a terminator! AND he "dies" at the end so any bad deeds committed beforehand wouldn't have gone unchecked. Any idiot in the audience already knew that a terminator terminates. If he was really that concerned about Arnold's lethality he should have had the bikers be a bunch of murderous thugs that were in the process of accosting someone when the T800 appeared. Then he could have still dispatched them "justifiably" if that's what Cameron was going for and it wouldn't have made people faint on a second viewing because *gasp* he turned out to be the "good" guy.

What if he blew the black guy's head off after John told him to grab the other guy's hair? Imagine the horror on John's face that would have haunted him the rest of the film and that would have actually driven organically his desire to see no one else killed. But no John is just some magical saint who is unphased by violence but doesn't tolerate it just the same.

Look at Peter Jackson's King Kong. Kong kills dozens of people, most of them innocent. But he was still a sympathetic figure in a PG-13 movie no less. What the hell was Cameron thinking? Make the Terminator into an after school special, complete with a "He-Man cartoon" ending where Linda Hamilton turns to the audience and reminds the kids what they learned that episode? Good grief.

Soooooo.....

T1 didn't really have any ball.s either. There were no moral quandries in that film. The most questionable thing Reese did was steal the pants off a homeless man. And Arnie as the T-800? He just did what its expected villains will do, he killed people (as the T-1000 did in T2, the villains job, not the hero). My point here is should one have expected T2 to have been more ballsy than T1 was? Certainly if things transpired as you detail it would have been more hardcore than T1.

The T-800 not killing people has always seemed to be a big issue for T2 detractors but its not like the film totally fails to address it. Its quite clear he was going to kill the jock douchbags. And the guys in the bar he just doesn't happen to kill - in the same way the T1 version didn't happen to kill the guy he kicks out of the phone box or the William Fisher cop that he commandeers the police car from or the bouncer who tries to stop him going into Tech Noir. It can be rationalised as mere happenstance that the T2 T-800 didn't kill anyone. He was willing to and was about to.

Now perhaps you can accept that but you still would rather him actually kill someone and see what the repercussions of that would be for John and Sarah. Fair enough. Ultimately you would never see me saying 'yeah I wish they would have done it this way or that way' because I enjoy it exactly as it is. Having said that, I would be intrigued if we could have gotten an ''alternate'' T2 that played out your way. If the T-800 had killed people they couldn't just gloss over that and it could have been a very different film. Undeniably that'd be interesting and there'd be no doubting that this was the same cold killer as in the first film. I'd love to see if, ala King Kong, the T-800 could still be sympathetic despite killing innocent bystanders. Remake anyone?

On a related note T3 pissed me off over a missed opportunity for a harder edge and a potential bit of T1 nostalgia factor - before seeing the film I had read about the TX's ability to control other machines. I thought 'great! Clearly thats going to be used on the T-800 and we're going to see Arnie in villain-mode again and hopefully a recreation of his T1 performance'.......instead all that happened was the T-800 briefly became a Terminator-Zombie and all John Connor had to do was talk him out of it. Wow.

On the preachiness at the end of T2, I get your He-Man cartoon analogy, I do. But again maybe I was just at the age where it affected me. I didn't look at it objectively and over the years I've indoctrinated myself to accept it without any adult cynicism. I mean 'I know now why you cry' is still one of my favorite parts :lol

The Final Frontier

It's been a while since I've seen this, but ouch. Some of the Spock/Kirk/McCoy stuff is solid, but that's all it has going for it. I can't rate it anything above a 5/10, and I might be being generous. Hated Sybok. Thought a lot of it was stupid.

It's pretty awful.

I've been watching the Trek TOS films for the first time in several years, and my ranking is as follows:

The Motion Picture: 6/10....suffers from being boring, and my lack of caring about Decker or Illia.
The Wrath of Khan: 9.5/10.....the best.
The Search for Spock: 7.5/10....it had its strong moments (hated the Savvik recast though).
The Voyage Home 8.5/10....the most fun.

Haven't gotten to Undiscovered Country yet, but I enjoyed that one a lot when I originally watched it.

My point here is should one have expected T2 to have been more ballsy than T1 was? Certainly if things transpired as you detail it would have been more hardcore than T1.

I didn't mean that literaly the only way for a hardcore sci-fi thriller to have "ball.s" is to have a good guy murdering people. That would have just been *one* way T2 could have achieved it, since he wasn't technically "good," just a reprogrammed killing machine. What I like (and your mileage may vary of course) is for R-rated sci-fi thrillers/action thrillers to have a level of unpleasantness or something that's a bit disturbing. Not necessarily "in your face" or every other second of the movie but it is an important aspect IMO.

In The Terminator the T800 was a fearsome Freddy Krueger-esque villain with machine guns. It really had an element of horror to it. Both in the future, (people being blown apart, women crying off screen, and so on) and in the present (him ripping people's hearts out, cops screaming in pain as he slaughters an entire precinct, the door to door slayings, the limping zombie robot, etc.)

I won't go off about the unsettling/disturbing aspects of Aliens and Robocop because they're pretty obvious.

I don't think T2 had any. And any moment where it borderlined on getting intense there'd be an immediate crowd pleasing moment or a laugh (or a Rodney King speech.)


The T-800 not killing people has always seemed to be a big issue for T2 detractors but its not like the film totally fails to address it. Its quite clear he was going to kill the jock douchbags. And the guys in the bar he just doesn't happen to kill - in the same way the T1 version didn't happen to kill the guy he kicks out of the phone box or the William Fisher cop that he commandeers the police car from or the bouncer who tries to stop him going into Tech Noir. It can be rationalised as mere happenstance that the T2 T-800 didn't kill anyone. He was willing to and was about to.

Eh, I find those weak attempts to "address" his killing nature at best. Kind of like Indy drawing his pistol in KOTCS but not shooting anyone. Whoopedy do. You know you think "guns are bad" now Steve so that little gesture doesn't count.

And little John being able to just push the hundred pound hydraulic arm of a T800 aside as its about to shoot someone just made the terminator look weak.


Now perhaps you can accept that but you still would rather him actually kill someone and see what the repercussions of that would be for John and Sarah. Fair enough. Ultimately you would never see me saying 'yeah I wish they would have done it this way or that way' because I enjoy it exactly as it is. Having said that, I would be intrigued if we could have gotten an ''alternate'' T2 that played out your way. If the T-800 had killed people they couldn't just gloss over that and it could have been a very different film. Undeniably that'd be interesting and there'd be no doubting that this was the same cold killer as in the first film. I'd love to see if, ala King Kong, the T-800 could still be sympathetic despite killing innocent bystanders. Remake anyone?

You know I actually agree with you on that in some regard. What's done is done and for better or worse its a pretty iconic movie that greatly imprinted on our society and certainly me (I saw it seven times in the theater!) when I first saw it. I laughed at all the "funny" parts, cheered when he jumped onto the hood of the semi and unloaded an assault rifle into the T1000 and thought it was pretty emotional when he gave the thumbs up at the end.

I just find that what worked the first few times I saw it doesn't still hold true anymore.


On a related note T3 pissed me off over a missed opportunity for a harder edge and a potential bit of T1 nostalgia factor - before seeing the film I had read about the TX's ability to control other machines. I thought 'great! Clearly thats going to be used on the T-800 and we're going to see Arnie in villain-mode again and hopefully a recreation of his T1 performance'.......instead all that happened was the T-800 briefly became a Terminator-Zombie and all John Connor had to do was talk him out of it. Wow.

Ha ha, yeah. It was kind of like the end of The Naked Gun when Frank Dreben was able to talk Priscilla Presley out of her "hypnosis" through sappy and intentionally cheesy dialogue. :lol

Superman Returns ... 6.5/10.

I hadn't seen this in years -- though I've heard people complain about it a lot since then. It wasn't as bad as I recall. It is watchable. It is a complete failure as an attempted reboot. But, it actually works fairly well as an ending to the Donner trilogy ... Superman: The Movie; Superman II Donner Cut; Superman Returns.

There were some cool scenes in there -- the plane crash, the car catch, the Daily Planet globe. The suit looked great. The casting was great, with one notable exception. I liked Routh's Superman and Clark Kent ... though he was asked to do too much of a Reeve imitation to really make anything of it. Spacey's Lex Luthor was a little over-the-top on occasion ... still not sinister enough ... but a LOT better than Hackman. He's still no Rosenbaum. The side parts -- Perry White, Jimmy Olsen, Richard White, Miss Tessmacher (or whatever her name was in this) -- were all well cast.

The low points ...

The script wasn't very good at all. It seemed like Singer spent a lot of time thinking about the physics of flight, casting, the look of the costume, homages to Donner, and the overall ambiance of the movie ... and almost no time thinking about finding a story worth telling, or considering that he was making Superman into a weird jilted lover.

Lex Luthor's plan is stupid from top-to-bottom. Luthor is supposed to be a mastermind ... not Brain from Pinky and the Brain. The illegitimate son/ Superman-is-a-deadbeat-dad plotline was poorly conceived, and has no place in a Superman movie. And, they didn't even think ahead ... where do you go in a sequel? Superman's son sidekick? Kill him off and send Superman on a revenge quest? Complete mess.

Lois Lane is really the only casting trainwreck. Too young, and she can't act.

There are enough high points to make this watchable if you consider it closure to the Donner movies rather than a failed reboot attempt. As a reboot ... it is too Donner-dependent. As an end to the trilogy ... it fits well enough.

Just watched Escape from L.A for the first time. I've avoided it for years because I heard it was so bad.

Eh. It was OK. Not great. Had a few good moments. But for the most part, it was just a remake of the first. Kurt was great as Snake, so that was nice to watch. But the CGI was horrible, and the action was iffy at best because of it. I didn't hate it, but didn't like it either.

That basketball scene though...what the holy ****. Surfing scene doesn't come close to that one.

Deckard
06-13-2013, 12:05 AM
The surfing scene is probably about the only part of that movie I actually like, it's just so over the top and 80s. The hang gliders fit it nicely too even though the effects are really poor. The rest is a less interesting remake in every imaginable way. You cannot replace Donald Pleasance and Lee Van Cleef. I love John but this and village were a low water mark where his career prety much took a nose dive and never managed to recover.

It doesn't let up for one second, at all lol. The CGI was also top notch. The only slight disappointment is that it could've been more story driven. Best Superman movie by far. Probably one of if not the best action movie out there.

Interesting. I thought several of the themes still hold strong today. Old age, feelings of not being needed anymore, dealing with loss and failure, rebirth... Additionally, the uniforms are still the best uniforms in all of Star Trek lore, the final battle in the Nebula had more excitement and tension than anything out of the new Star Trek movies, and Spock's death is still an amazingly powerful scene today. And Khan... still one of the best villains in all of Star Trek (IMO)

I just watched WoK a few weeks ago in its entirety for the first time. Meh. It was good. It was really good filmmaking in terms of technical details. But it was also very simple storytelling. It wasn't as deep as I imagined it would be. It felt a lot like Moby ****. Khan was Ahab and destroyed himself, his crew, and his stolen ship he could have flown to freedom in with the hopes of revenge. And honestly, he's so ticked off at Kirk but he was a bad guy doing bad things! He makes it sound as if what Kirk did was wrong. Nope. Marooning a bunch of dangerous criminals on an inhospitable world is not the most immoral thing a man can do. It just felt light to me and didn't have nearly the amount of complexity I expected it to have. It might be one of the better ST movies still, but just not leagues better than the rest as the impression is given by so many.

Jonathan Kent wasn't quite the moral rock in this one that he ought to be. Did he really suggest Clark let a busload of schoolkids die? Good grief.

Wasn't crazy about the death of Jor-el. Or the death of Jonathan Kent, for that matter.

The words "Kneel before Zod" should've appeared somewhere. They would've fit toward the end, after he'd finally had-it.

The Movie was Amazing! Yes im a massive Superman Fan and Yes i like Zack Snyder. I feel like it could of been longer, the story had alot going on and yes it was 2 and a half hours but it moved, 5 minutes could of went a long way. BUT BRAVO TO THE CAST & CREW!!!

Man of Steel - 9/10

My worries over hearing very different thoughts people had on this movie were unfounded it seems.

There was lots of emotion and great story foundation that the plot of the movie is built on. The action was fantastic, it wasn't too frenetic like transformers but it was never ending and it makes you fatigued & disinterested after a point, kindof like the never ending epilogues in ROTK.

General zod to me is probably the most fleshed out villain since Magneto, a character he reminds me of. Both were doing what they were doing for a good reason, they wanted to preserve their race they were just going about it the wrong way.

Kal El was good, at first he was a bit douchey, especailly.

telling his Dad he was just a guy who found him, that was cold.

The great thing is he really evolves throughout the movie and becomes and different man by the end. His character reminded me of Peter in ASM, both were green, still learning to use their powers, both grew over the course of the movie.

Cavill could've been more easygoing and not so uptight seeming throughout

Do you live in an elderly (60+ ) community by chance, because that may explain the reaction in your theater. There was no booing in my theater, quite the opposite actually, a lot of clapping after the final scene.

Nah I wasn't drunk, but I had a few drinks, I was amped up to like the movie more. But even then I thought there was waay too much CG as I said a while back. On second viewing I still liked the Krypton opening and Crowe. But I the flaws of the movie became very apparent. A lot of it was just messy and dumb. And I ****ing cringed at times. Kal? Seriously? Jor and Kal? Diane Lane was horrible. The tornado was ridiculous.

Glenn Ford looked just looked at his wrist and said "oh, no!" 30 or 40 seconds of film which had more integrity and emotional whallop than 2 hours plus of badly put together expensive trash. IMO.

About an 8/10 I think.
The addition of the extra scenes (a lot of them containing dialogue and character development) made it an even better watch. Also there's a lot of extra blood and gore which adds a bit more to the realism when getting stabbed or cut with a sword.
During the burning of Troy not even women and babies are spared and I think that's new as well. After seeing the DC I can only describe the theatrical version as a toned down, more or less, family friendly one.

MOS: Great reboot, totally different vibe from the original while maintaining familiar characters.

Zod is one of the greatest "villains" I've seen on screen, and I use the term loosely as he was actually the true hero, but those House of El *****es kept getting in the way. :lol

Loved most of the casting, didn't have alot of time to warm up to the new Supes, but this was a very busy, very fast movie considering it was well over 2 hours.

Some of the smaller roles were wonderfully cast (like the Colonel) which is always a nice touch.

Man of Steel...

I don't like to rate movies as we all know it's x/5 or x/10 ... or whatever... so I won't bother.

All I know is this...

It made me like the franchise again and gave me hope for the direction of the character.

I wanted to arrange to watch it again to pick up everything I missed !

And most important to me... It spurred a non-stop discussion with my teenage son the entire ride home.

Some key points I enjoyed:

Not seeing Jor-el go out like a punk. Bad *** !

Seeing Superman's lack of finesse in his fighting skills. You could see he is new to this even with all the cells in his body. He tackles a lot giving way to what we know of his love for football

J. Kent died showing Clark he didn't just talk the talk... showing us his true greatness as a father, as conflicted as he was in what he had to do to keep Clark safe

Great spoilers for thrown in for the entire DC universe.

Superman Returns - *sigh* - 5/10

It gets those points for using the Williams theme, the plane rescue and stadium bit, the kryptonite beating from Lex (much more effecting than anything in MOS), some good rescues, the way they incorporated Brando Jor El stuff and an overall nice visual aesthetic.

Unfortunately, overall its still boring as ****, with a flat uninspired script, wierdly edited and oddly quiet in so many scenes. I don't know if it was supposed to be dramatic silence but it added to the boredom factor. Lois sucks and so does the kid and the whole idea of him. Cavill is probably better as Superman than Routh was - Routh is a bit too boyish both in his looks and his voice tbh.


Man of Steel didn't quite cut it for me either (I rated it a 6) but hopefully some more traditional Superman elements will come into play in the sequel. Every criticism that there's been I pretty much agree with but, as I've said a lot over the past few days, if it merely had the Williams theme I reckon I would have enjoyed it a lot more. Don't give me it wouldn't fit. The Bond theme can be found in the most stupid and ridiculous of the Moore films and the grittiest and most realistic of the Craig films. You can't ground Superman in reality - he's innately absurd and fantastical, and theres nothing wrong with that, so give him back the music he deserves.

Anyway I said earlier I'd shut up about that but having watched Superman Returns again I couldn't help myself just now.

It's baffling how they praised the Avengers and bashed MoS.

It's because Avengers had a heart and characters we cared about. MoS had lots of pretty SFX

Man of Steel -

First Half - 4 out of 10
Rushed and throwing too much at a wall, hoping something sticks.

Second Half: 8 out of 10
Loads of action and fun. Even then, some parts could have been better delivered.

Total Score: 6 out of 10
Gee Golly, I can do math.

I found this by Goyer interesting:


You can't force it. The DC characters are different than the Marvel characters. They've been around much longer, particularly the big three: Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman. The Marvel characters that Stan Lee, Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko came up with, they came along, in some cases, thirty years later. The DC characters are deeper archetypes, and those Marvel characters were in reaction to these archetypes. My grandmother is ninety-six, and she has an emotional attachment to Superman. She doesn't have any attachment to Spider-Man or Iron Man. They have to be treated in a different way, particularly the big three. Done right, like Chris [Nolan] did with the Batman films, they can reach an even bigger audience. But I also think there are more pitfalls because people have more preexisting expectations.

Dredd 3D - I see why it didn't last long in theaters. Seemed like a very B movie.

Inside Jaws, A Filmumentary - 8 out of 10 - Not as good as his Star Wars Fimumentaries as I am familiar with about everything on here but it was a great fan made Doc. There were a few interesting bits of Info that I did not know and that is saying something.

Where did you see this? I recently saw The Shark Is Still Working and thought it was ok, but not a lot of new stuff either.

As a very big fan of Alfred Hitchcock, I was unsure of how this movie would sit with me. I found it to be pretty enjoyable actually.

Here is a link to all his fan made docs. They are basically commentaries with lots of behind the scene shots inserted in the film. The Star Wars one was lots of fun. Defiantly worth a look :)

Lifeforce - 3 out of 10 - I have not seen this film in years and now I know why. Yet further proof that Spielberg actually directed Poltergeist and not Tobe Hooper (I really think TCM was a lucky mistake)
