Terminator Salvation

I had a Best Buy Rewards certificate that I wanted to use yesterday and decided to check out the DVDs available at the local store.  Terminator Salvation was on sale for $9.99 so with my rewards, I got it for a really good price! Plus it included a free digital download inside, too. I've been collecting the Terminator movies and was glad to finally complete my collection without spending a fortune.

Anyway, we watched the movie at home yesterday and it was better than I expected. In comparison to the prior movies , I loved Terminators 1 and 2 but I was actually a little disappointed with Terminator 3. Sure, the female terminator was an interesting addition and the action sequences were exciting but the overall storyline was kind of lame. A lot of scenes were too predictable. Maybe a different director could've made T3 more the "guy flick" that I wanted it to be.

I think I also did not really like the cast of T3 too much. (Not really a Clare Danes or Nick Stahl fan). They just didn't seem fit for the roles of future resistance leaders. Even if John Connor was still trying to get past his issues with the "role" he was born into, Nick Stahl did not make John Connor look like someone I'd really trust to get behind and support if my life depended on it. He didn't seem as street smart or intelligent as Edward Furlong made the young John Connor appear in T2.

In any case, Terminator Salvation answered a lot of questions about what Judgment Day was going to be like and how the terminator came to be but at the same time, opened up the possibility of another Terminator movie. It was great!!! I want to watch it again!
