      Next Terminator film will be a spinoff entitled "Being John Connor" which will, of course, be entirely original and of the highest quality.

    You wanna know what would have been an interesting twist on the idea? Or should I say "another" interesting twist on the idea? What season 2 Finale of "Sarah Connor Chronicles" did. When John Connor jumped into the time machine and end up in the future, met his uncle Derek Reese (a character made for the show and Kyle's brother), introduced himself...only so that Derek and his men be like: "Yeah never heard of you"....boom End Season....only for the show to be cancelled.

    Conner helped humanity at the start. But it wasn't his story. It was the android and reese's. They expanded his scenes cause they liked his performance. And one of the endings was the terminator killing them all. So I wouldn't put too much stock in the alternate ending that makes no sense. Just because the writing didn't do anything.

    Honestly I enjoyed Salvation far more than I did RotM. Seeing the story in the future rather than yet another time jump plot was refreshing in a way, and the practical fx along with the cgi at the time was beautiful. Plot holes and inconsistencies aside, this film had good moments. I rank Salvation much higher than T3.

    To make Connor and Markus friends at the beginning would make a compelling conflict when it's revealed that Markus is a robot. Another thing they could have done was have the doctor from the 1st 3 films. He's mostly a coward and a companion with Kyle Reese (who suddenly not so crazy from the 1st film). He and Reese get captured by the machines. Connor comes to save them in a fight with a T-800. After some struggle, Reese is down for the count, Connor is about to be killed, until the doctor unexpectly saves them, and they barely escape.

    Wait why does John Connor need a new heart we already established a guy that is mostly a machine and still has a functioning human heart. I'm pretty sure you could do the reverse of that and just give John an artificial organ. That facility is probably full of them.

    it is sad how this movie could have done something special by focusing on Reese and Connor as characters through the eyes of Marcus yet utter fail and the fact that they do something new with no time travel and Arnold and make it set during the war which should be the most scaryest and heart breaking but is not but it is far from the worst in my opinion

    I actually enjoyed this one. I think the problem is they don't know who they want to be the main character. I think Sam Worthington did a great job in his character and the direction it was heading. John Conner felt shoe horned in and therefore his scenes felt awkward.

    Another failed attempt by hollywood at recreating terminator 1/2. Is making an original fresh terminator movie that hard? Hollywood..please get one thing straight. The story arc ENDED at terminator 2. There is no more skynet, no more t-800 CPU's and arms to reverse engineer, the time loop CLOSED itself into non existence as skynet indirectly sent his own creation and set its own destruction. Cyberdine EXPLODED! The internet DID NOT exist by the time terminator 2 was made. Its OVER! Why is this SO HARD to understand? If you want to make a reboot. Make A ACTUAL reboot not a rehash of T1 and 2 with ever so convoluted plotlines. Its not like Hollywood is incapable of making good reboots....oh wait..nevermind. Edit: the reason that they didnt explained Bryce Dallas Howards being pregnant in the movie is because at the time of the movie She was pregnant IRL and the director was too lazy to put an extra line or 2 to ackowledge the fact that she IS pregnant and why. Making their interactions very awkward as the act as if she wasnt.

    We have to admit to orselves the problem is that while T2 was awesome flavored awesome wrapped in awesome, it was actually the wrong sequel. The sequel shoulda been a mad max esque story set in the future, with John coming in out of the dust Mad Max style and saving the day and gathering his forces to attack Skynet.

    Once again, they scrapped an ending that made sense. I think one of my favorite observations at the time was that since No Fate was such a through line for the first two movies, they really should have killed John Conner here. He’s not a destined messiah, he was the best/only route to human victory anyone on either side knew about. But the future can always be changed. And having Marcus take his place still ties the loop, as far as Reese going back is concerned. I didn't realize Anton Yelchin was in this! And yeah, his Kyle Reese isn't bad. I miss Anton Yelchin.

    Probably the biggest problem with the film, was that it was called "Terminator". It was kinda interesting, but it was too different than its predecessors.
