Successfully completing my mission to watch all of the Terminator movies, I can finally bring you my reviews of the most recent two installments in the series. A combination of explosions, psychopathic futuristic machines, and time travel science fiction, I can see why a lot of people love these movies. And the pounding drums of the main (albeit simple) theme song instill both a feeling of fear, anticipation, and determination. Here’s my take on these last two films, from a Lilith perspective.
I think I was somehow accidentally transported to the 1980’s, since I have been catching up on some old classics like the original Star Trek series, and now here I find myself having finally (yes, as a 32 year old), finally watching the first two Terminator films. I won’t say it was by my choice, but I figured it was time to get up to speed on this series, seeing as how the upcoming film this summer stars Emilia Clarke and Matt Smith. I might as well understand all the background, and see what the Arnold hub-bub is all about. So here is my review of these first two films, with of course my feminine judgment and perspective.
