Linda Hamilton has only made 6 movies in her whole life.

But the trailer does look pretty good

Meh. Without Arnold, it's just CGI
nonsense.

I fell asleep in the theater during Terminator: Genisys.

I never fall asleep during movies.

Itís cool that Linda Hamilton is back. But at this point theyíre just beating a dead horse.

I'm looking forward to this. I loved the first three. The fourth was terrible. The fifth was just bad. I think this one will go back to David Cameron as director, so I hope it will get back to the feel of the first three.

I think you mean James Cameron.

He didnít direct this, only produced and maybe has a writing credit. Heís too busy with Avatar 2-5 to direct anything else.

Never saw any of them, not going to start. Not my kind of movie.

You are correct that he is only the producer and is responsible for story idea (but not the entire writing of the script), but I have a lot of faith in his vision. I think he could put the franchise back on track.

Did you watch the trailer? Arnold is *in* this one. Of course, he was in Genisys and it sucked.

I, too, am looking forward to T6. It is my co-most-anticipated piece of content in 2019, along with the Picard series.

The original and T2 are classics and both rank high on my all-time favorite film list. T3 was meh, the last 2 were pretty brutal. Here's hoping.

The CGI in the trailer doesn't give me a ton of hope though. When the CGI is so bad that it looks like a cartoon, you're not doing it right. T2 used early 90s CG in moderation and lots of practical effects and it was great. I wish we could get back to that.

Totally agree
The 1st 2 were great.
