Terminator 5 and 6 Taking Shape Withouth McG February 11, 2010

Skynet and its army of Terminator WILL BE BACK! But not by way of the moron that put out Terminator 4 (aka Terminator Salvation).

According to a report on Deadline Hollywood, there is now a 24-page treatment for Terminator 5, and a 4-page concept outline for Terminator 6.

The 2-picture construct takes place in a post-apocalyptic battleground, and factors in an element of time travel that allows for Sarah Connor and Kyle Reese to interact beyond their single fateful meeting when he traveled back in time to protect her in the original film. Wisher has created a role for Arnold Schwarzenegger that is as surprising as his shift from villain in the first film, to John Connor’s bodyguard in the second. Schwarzenegger wouldn’t be needed until the final film, which wouldn’t shoot until after he ends his term as California Governor. And who wouldn’t want to see Linda Hamilton back in aerobic top fitness form as Sarah Connor?

man, i think if you didnt like terminator salvation, you dont like sc-fi and the terminator series. people are idiots. remember blade runner? most of the time, the best sc-fi movie get dissed by the stupid masses. then they became cult because of the true fans of the genre. that movie was a masterpiece. what was wrong with it? it wasnt a clone of the first 3? i love the first one more than anything and i preffer salvation to the second (wich i love as well) ive waited 20 years for that and it worth evry penny. of course its different that the flashbacks of the first 2, where not there yet dammit!!! and because of the stupid masses that can see a masterpiece when it hit them between the eyes, maybe we’ll never see that war with lasers and stuff, lots of t-800 and where they go for time travel. i guess its normal. after all, people buy titanics and celine dion music instead.

I wouldn’t exactly call T4 a masterpiece nor would I put it in the same category as Bladerunner but I digress. It also doesn’t seem reasonable to assume that everyone who doesn’t feel the same about it as you to be idiots. I don’t have to like every movie nor everything in said movie in order to “like” something about a broad genre like Sci Fi.

I want to see the war from the flashbacks as much as the next guy, that doesn’t mean I have to like whatever they do in the course of two more movies to “maybe” get there. By that logic I should like Alien vs Predator and AvP2 so that I can see the A list, real budget Sci Fi Summer blockbuster three way Colonial Marine/Predator/Aliens battle royale that was promised to be in the works many years ago……. leading instead to a limited rerelease of Alien and eventually AvP instead which is essentially nothing more than the Sci Fi version of a quick turnaround movie like Scary Movie 15 or Saw 11.

ps. And no “Predators” doesn’t look like the same thing to me.

Personally, I thought Terminator Salvation was the best thus far. It has a great story line, a lot of heart & action that really lit a fire under your a$$. For once, a Terminator movie had good actors & not just a big muscle bount brute, who only got the movie role was because he was built like a brick house. Don’t get me wrong, I like Arnold, but he couldn’t act his way out of a crowded booth at Denny’s.
People slammed Christian Bale’s performance of John Connor but I think for as little as he was in the movie, he did great. The movie seemed a bit more centered around Sam Worthingtons character & that was cool, because for one, it was nice to see that the film wasn’t completely centered on a terminator trying to kill John Connor, for once. Also, it was cool because I think Sam Worthington is a great actor.
The effects of the movie were epic & no Terminator before it, could match. I liked finally seeing the present day world, as opposed to the passed 3 which all took place in the so-called passed.
James Cameron may have invented the series, but like all things, when you give something to the world, its no longer just yours; its all of ours.
