Terminator 2: Judgment Day Was on Last Night
I’m certainly fond of the Terminator series, and I really miss the TV series The Sarah Connor Chronicles with all the weekly fun that that came with it. Not to mention Summer Glau each week playing a Terminator is awesome also. But, we’re here to talk about Terminator 2: Judgment Day. I find it hard to believe it’s been almost 20, no wait; it’s been over 21 years since the Terminator 2 released. I find it even harder to believe that I could sit down watch this movie from front to back again and still enjoy it as much as I did the first time.
Arnold Schwarzenegger playing the Terminator is just a plain classic in my mind. Now don’t get me wrong, I have no problem with other Terminators, but when I think of the Terminator, Arnold is the one that comes to my mind. Linda Hamilton playing Sarah Connor is so convincing that it’s actually quite scary, and it makes you think just how realistic the story could be at some point hopefully in the very far future.
Edward Furlong playing the infamous John Connor is a young punk kid separated from his “crazy mother,” simply just running wild as his stepparents have little to no control over him. This quickly changes as the two Terminators come from the future, one intent on killing John Connor, and the other sent from John Connor himself 35 years in the future as a protector.
If there’s anything to complain about in this movie, it would be the resilience of the liquid metal Terminator. But, at the same time this is supposed to be technology that we don’t understand how it works. So that said, I’m left to accept this type of Terminator without further question.
I enjoyed Terminator 2 again has I have in the past over and over. And it’d been a while since I have watched it. Unfortunately I don’t have my weekly fix The Sarah Connor Chronicles anymore. I hope something comes of this series again sooner rather than later, be it a movie or another TV series. I look forward to it.
