I want your clothes your boots and you motorcycle
‘best of the terminator films’ is hardly a massive accolade 3 was a joke & salvation was a mess + it had bonham-carter in
and more to the point you are wrong
while its a good film, its not a patch on the original; arnies’ terminator is played for laughs, it doesnt have enough of the reece style future flashbacks and john connor is an annoying whinny shit who deserves to be terminated for listening to gnrPosted 5 years agodavidtaylforthMember

Apart from the fact they’re both Terminator films, they’re both pretty different really, but equally as good.
The first is definitely more badass though. He kills 17 police officers to start with.Posted 5 years agokimbersSubscriber

now thats a good film
I agree with Kimbers. I love how people say sequels are better than the originals. Everything about the sequel wouldn’t exist without the original film, and it’s a bit of a comedy pastiche moneymaker of the original. The sequel is all about quips, effects and big set action which is a bit of a parody of the first terminator, which tries to be a genuine sci-fi dystopian future type film. It does carry on the ideas and storyline of the original film, but it has to, there’s nothing really new. to me, it doesn’t have the same Sci-fi soul. Same as 2010 or Aliens. It’s a cash in, done really well, some good ideas, still a watchable film etc. But no patch on the original idea.Posted 5 years ago
yah I could tell 😉 love a good sci-fi film. Not seen a good one for ages http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soldier_(The_Outer_Limits)Posted 5 years ago

As for Alien/s. The first is more about the Alien within us, it was made in a time when the cold war was still around, and hence paranoia, still a bit bmovieish. To me, It’s more about looking around in the dark recesses of our souls and finding the dark stuff. It’s quite a long dark suspensful trek, like apocalypse now or something. I’s that dark quivering base cortex horrible part of humanity we don’t want to find or look at.But it’s there, and it’s horrible. It’s a huge brilliant visual metaphor. The Alien is us.
Aliens copies the visuals from the original (the best bits any way), takes the Alien as just something on a planet to be battled with with guns and marines etc. is a very good action film with lots of guns and gung ho stuff. It’s very American!
The original is a far more cerebral, intelligent film, and it gives you time to think. It just depends what type of film you fancy at the time eh? The fascinating thing about a good film, like any work of art, is that you can apply yourself to it in a different way in a different time in your life and still get a different response. You can’t do that with Police Academy.Posted 5 years agoRusty SpannerSubscriber
I’d love to see all the missing bits from the third Alien film.
There’s a great story in there somewhere.
Needs more backstory re the inmates etc.
Alien is a wonderful film, populated by believable, flawed characters, brilliantly scripted, shot and acted.
Aliens is a predictable shoot ’em up populated by walking cliches and directed with the boring narcissism of someone who needs to put the little spoon down a bit more often.Posted 5 years ago
