Did you watch the trailer? Arnold is *in* this one.


He makes a cameo appearance, which
is meaningless. Doesn't matter, 2 was
the only good one. Great story and
great early CGI. Remember how amazed
we were at some of it? Kid stuff now..

He makes a cameo in the *trailer*. We don't know how much he will be in the final film. I thought he was going to be a main character, but I guess we'll find out.

The original was also great in my opinion. Of course, film tastes are personal.

Where I seem to disagree with other fans of the series is I think T3 was on par with T1 and T2. Or maybe I just like the actress, Kristanna Loken, played the bad terminator.

His face makes a 1 second appearance
in the trailer, we can guess he'll be in
the movie for 5 min or less. If he
was in more, we would see more of
him in the trailer.

She doesn't play on your team.


While T2 was a massive box office smash earning over $500m worldwide in 1991, the next three earned $370-$440 million worldwide. While not really enough to justify the production budgets, it shows that the franchise still has potential.

I believe I have only seen T3 a single time. I remember being very excited about it in high school, even changing the wallpaper on the family computer to a picture of the T-X.

It didn't resonate with me, but I guess I should watch it again.

T3 was the last "good" (not great) Terminator movie.

I'll see this new one, just because I think it will be cool so see Linda Hamilton kicking ass again. But I have low expectations.

I thought T3 kept a great tempo and suspense. What can I say, I liked it. I would put it about equal to T2.

There's a really good chase scene, using all kinds of vehicles including fire dept. ladder trucks in the last one i saw, which I believe was T3

Yes, that is quite early on in T3.

T3 is really good at parts, but I thought it just kind of fizzled out at the end and was anticlimactic.

And kind of lame to kill Sarah Connor off with a line of dialogue about her having cancer.
