Terminator > Aliens as well.

(But, if it counts as action, Blade Runner is better then all of these.)

T2 holds a special place in my childhood heart but at worst it's still an absolute classic.  Believe it or not the last Terminator that came out did very well overseas so they are going to keep trying to get this right...  I hope this one gets it right.

Oh, I love T2. But it gets real lumpy in the second act. While Aliens is really strong throughout, again ND The Terminator is just a non-stop burst of adrenaline.

Plus, only one of them has Edward Furlong.

Man, you wouldn't believe the excitement of 9 year old me finally getting to watch T2 when it came out for rental. Think I must have watched it three times in two days. That bike v truck v Harley chase still gets a pop out of me to this day, and when the T1000 emerged from the flames? Forget about it.

All they seem to show is the rather bloated expanded cut when it's on TV now, never really liked that as much though I'll be honest I did prefer the definitive ending that was cut.

Fun (not fun) side fact: I based my Commander Shepherd in Mass Effect on Future John Connor from T2 right down to the face scar.

I've seen The Terminator (1984), T2: Judgment Day (1991) and Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003). T2's the best of them.

In the early 1990s, the excitement for T2 is probably comparable to what it's like now for MCU.

The marketing team should never, ever be forgiven for that last tv spot just before the movie opened giving away that the T-800 was on the human's side.

This was in one of my local video stores for YEARS.  I miss video stores.  It was an experience to go there on a Friday night and pick out movies with friends and then get a pizza. We were set for the weekend.

Errrr, there's something a bit off with that. This is the display I remember:

Last Action Hero is the epitome of flawed masterpiece. If it had had someone like John Landis directing and they nailed that third act it would have been perfect.

1) So much Photoshop in Hamilton's face

2) For a split second I thought Arnold was Jeffrey Dean Morgan

I feel just kind of numb to the spoilers that I've read. I'm still going to see the movie but considering Salvation and Genisys, I'm not really expecting this to go anywhere. '

This has been a roller coaster for me. I wasn't interested. Then I saw a teaser and it was better than expected.  But then I saw an extended trailer the other night at the imax and it looks kind of messy.
