You'd think he'd just lean into it at this point. I was half expecting his character to get hit by a car at the end of The Martian.

Just got GTA San Andreas free on PC for installing the Rockstar Games launcher. Sounded like a great deal, then I go looking for some mods (Glock 17, M4 from SWAT, Pursuit Special from Mad Max, etc) and find out the version of the game acquired through said launcher doesn't support mods. At all.

Nice job, Rockstar. At least it was free and thus I didn't lose any money on it.

Looks good. I hope it airs here at some point.

As I've been saying, it's never a great sign when sequels start ignoring previous films.

No surprise this movie bombed. The last one was just terrible but it was a retread. This one is just a kick in the dick for the previous movies

I'm ready to blow up the franchise (for good) and go for a straight remake. No more trying to explain why there's a septuagenarian Terminator running around. No more ignoring movies and TV shows because the timeline is convoluted. Just start over.

They really can't make these into good movies as long as they let current social trends dictate the art.

I have no interest in watching this movie at all. The plot was already shitty as I watched the trailers, and now I read its actual events that completely destroyed the franchise. It is indeed a big insult to the first two films.

Not to mention that the cast completely sucks as well. Linda was probably the only one who could potentially save the film, but I guess this was to no avail? (that's a question to the ones who actually watched it). The Rev-9 terminator looks way too innocent; the producers should have chosen someone else (an actor similar to Robert Patrick in T2) to make him even remotely scary. As for the character Grace, another actress similar to Kristanna Loken in T3 would have definitely done a better job.

If a Terminator film with Arnold, Linda Hamilton and James Cameron doesn't work, then what's left to do?

I liked the direction they were going in with Salvation, they should've stayed in the future.
