Cyborgdome: The Terminator vs. Terminator 2: Judgment Day

Postby mattw on Mon Jun 30, 2008 11:20 pm

This is a tough one. I love the first Terminator for all its cheesiness and crappy effects, but the second one blew my mind. I also saw it when I was 9 in the theater.

the first one isn't cheesy, and the effects are just fine.

the second one is stupid. he only wore the sunglasses and biker getup in the first one because he gouged his broken eye out, and a big dumb biker was the first guy he saw his size.

those two things alone ruin the sequels for me.

The first one does it for me. Action, sex, flashbacks - one good low budget movie.

Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines blows them both out of the water.

I'm watching T3 right now, and I just watched the first one. Space is running a marathon.

I think the second one is best. T3 is pretty cheesy.

I think that's what makes it the best one.
It's also fucking beyond stupid.
The end monologue is comedy gold.

There are actually some genuinely rad moments.

"PUT DOWN THE GUN... AND THE, UH, COFFIN"

"Your levity is good. It relieves tension and fear of death."

And so on. The little cheesy fan service touches are funny too - like, the police psychiatrist is the same guy from the first film, so when Arnie shows up he just runs blindly away, into the cemetery.

Man the end of this film is kind of a bummer. Comedy gold ending monologue though.

SKYNET IS ON THESE FORUMS RIGHT NOW.

The monologue is in the quotes section on IMDB, but reading them does not do it justice at all.
I actually saw this in the theater for free when it premiered.

Terminator 2 is just more fun, plus...Robert Patrick, man! T-1000 is the shit!
Life...life...I know it's got its ups and downs.

In the someday, what's that sound.

First one's fucking amazing. A real movie. Michael Biehn!

T2 is special effects hokiness. Good for what it is, but when it comes down to brass tacks it's just a lame blockbuster.

I really liked the end of T3.

The Terminator. all the way.

Hell yeah. And the part where John C. rear-ends that dude's car in the beginning of the crane chase thing.

"Sonofabitch. God damn it! That's my company car, asshole!"

Also, to Arnold, "Drop dead, asshole!"

"Unable to comply."

But Michael Biehn is awesome. And he gets bit on the hand...

T2 for the "dickwads" the Edward fucking Furlong, Budnick as his redhaired asshole friend, and of course, the hilarious thumbs-up at the end.

Terminator 2 all the way.

Funny the way these things happen... a day or two ago I popped in my old T2 vhs and watched it for a few minutes while I was eating. Then later on during the day it was on TV. Now this poll.

Cyberdyne Systems is spying on me.

I don't know....the effects in T2 are still pretty bad-ass. Not to mention the T-1000, all the crazy helicopter shit they did (all real). The only handicap is that little Eddie Furlong....

Yeah I don't know why they had to use a teen in the throes of puberty. His voice really annoys me.

They might as well have used Screech in 1988.

You'd have to be a real fucking doof to think part two is anywhere near in the same league as part one. A real fucking doof.
