    TERMINATOR-DARK FATE, will it ever terminate?

    Well..Ivīe been kind of tired of the Terminator sequels, and the Genisys wasnīt of my liking, the franchise is kind of milked out now, but as we have the miracle of time travel in movies like this and x-men, it can be milked forever until 20-30 years in the future and til I sit there with dementia ..saying, I havenīt seen this before.

    Anyway, despite the constant milking and perhaps similar storys with new effects, new small twists etc...some folks is back, that is Linda Hamilton and James cameron.
    I think I already can see the well done part from James himself, And you know what..despite all the years and that Linda isnīt that pretty young woman anymore, her personality or character is stil looking bad ***.



    A side note when it comes to be right in the time, since AI and robots seem to be making leaps in development the recent years, the movie may still be able to catch on to the audience, probably more so for the younger audience though.

    Keep in mind that this one has Jame Cameron back as a producer and picks up where T2 left off. They basically ignore all the other movies entirely.

    From what I'm reading, it's actually pretty good.

    I'm looking forward to watching it though I don't think it will be the same as T1 / T2.

    The only way to get back those old great feelings back when you saw Alien / Terminator / Star Wars for the first time, is a reset push of the brain.

    Yup...those three, extremely hard to introduce something new and fresh, while keeping the legacy feel at the same time.

    star wars 1-2 amazing ... starting to go down at movie 3 while having some good moments.
    Alien 1-2 amazing...starting to go donw at movie 3 while having some good moments.
    Terminator 1-2 amazing...but went to much south in movie 3 ..even worse than the above mentioned movies.

    Blade runner 1 amazing...but I havenīt even watched blade runner 2..which is a bit sad, and I would like to see it on the big screen, will see.

    I have a 60" plasma, but Blade Runner was made for the Cinema.

    tho' 60" plasma, better than those old 21" tube televisions...

    My brother and I used to watch hockey on 15 by 15 screen monitor on a portable tv receiver, my brother also made a graphic card and controller with joystick so I could draw some basic stuff in colors on it....a bit before amiga came out.

    I only got Lg 45 led I think, works better than older tv sets, but not the same thing as Cinema, and above all..itīs not nice in standard edition without sound enhancement boosters, and in this case..sound will be equally important.

    For a time, the only TV I had was a 2" black and white camping TV with an internal aerial - it was still enough to be scared by Tooms in the X Files! :O

    Talk about time travel but that must have been 1994 or a little later?
    The last time I recall watching black and white television, somewhere around 1975-77...I must have been around 10 years old, but the moonbase alpha as it was called in sweden (space 1999) was broadcasted at that time, and my older sister who just have moved away from home, she actually got a color tv before my father bought one, he didnīt think it was necessary with a color tv ..so we used to visit my sister on fridays I think, just to be able to watch space 1999 in full color.

    It looked something like this: https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5179/5...566c50eb_b.jpg

    Bit hard to judge scale, but it should be right (the size of the tape deck compared to the telly).

    It's funny because in the place I had before I had my Amiga's old 1084S monitor hooked up to an S-VHS deck for a TV.

    PS. The episode was called Squeeze, and aired on the 3rd October 1994, in England. It was one of the first things the woman who was going to be my wife (eventually) and I watched. Even in black and white, on a screen we could barely see, in the dark it was creepy enough for us to need to huddle closely together
