    Terminator Salvation

    Just finished watching. I knew the movie was in trouble when I started fast forwarding. Terrible. Simply terrible...

      I'm a huge T fan and found this movie to be very good. I don't know what you didn't like about it. It was in my opinion well written , well acted , kept you involved inthe story line and played out well.

          I saw it in the theater and felt let down majorly. I dont think I will be buying this one to give it a 2nd chance.

            Reference disc + crappy movie = crappy reference movie.

              :35: for me. Reference quality for picture and sound, and the not-too-standard storyline kept things pretty interesting. It could have scored higher on my personal scale, but keeping the intensity and violence at a PG-13 level robbed it of some needed gravity/desperation ala the original Terminator and its R rating.

                I watched this last night and was really glad I added it to my collection. Definitely different for a Terminator film but I thought it all quite appropriate.

                  I bought it on blue Ray,i skipped the theater.

                  I found the lighting used kind of threw me off.Others I know who saw it felt the same way.For some I'm sure it wouldn't matter.
                  For my taste it felt more like a big budget T.V version of what a Terminator movie is supposed to be about.
                  I still can't say why after this movie what makes the character John C. the savior of the world.I would have liked that dealt with better.
                  Was it a total letdown.......No...I will watch it from time to time I admit as there are certain things that I did like.But the movie felt like a let down over all.
                  A Man should never Gamble more than he can stand to loose.

                    Where's Arnold when you need him?

                    Wife and I like it, watched it a couple of times already (bluray), but we really lilke these kind of sci fi and disaster movies.

                      The family watched this one, everyone liked it. Sound and pic were awesome. The cg was excellent as well. It moved right along.

                        Given its critical reception, I was expecting very little from this film. Not groundbreaking in any way, but still entertaining. Picked up a used BD to complete my collection of the four films. When I get the time (once a year, the wife and kids head to Florida for 10 days to visit the grandmother and I remain home, so I usually have movie marathons), I'm going to do the four of them in short order and see if they hang together.
