      @itsmehotpocket Yeah I agree, the Rio movies are underrated, sure they might be kinda childish and annoying in some parts but I think the story and humor are done very well, the animation and voice acting is kinda average though.

      @realplayer54 hehe Funny you say that! I probably have seen the T-1000 1000 times but I still see new things each time. I watched Airplane yesterday; hadn't seen it in awhile and even though I have probably seen it a gazillion times, I still noticed 3 or 4 new things! I love that!

    I saved this review for the last. This is my favorite movie for all time and nothing will change that. I hate the directors cut. They added things that are not needed and make the movie more weak. You did great, I was scared. I don't need ppl making fun of this movie. It's perfect. Those dc extras are garbage. I don't need terminator smiling I don't need sarah connor having a vision of Kyle Reese. She's strong on her own, it diminishes her character. When somebody dies, you feel it. It hurts. Everybody in this film is perfect. 10 out of 10 all day theatrical version

      Seeing Miles Dyson as human. And his son getting in front of him screaming don't hurt him is insane. I feel it so hard. He's a great dad. Then the swat team shoots him. It's almost unbearable. He takes those bullets real. You feel the pain. You can't help but cry at so many scenes, if your human of course

    Feel like you overlooked the subtlety of the sunglasses reflecting the character of the T800 and Sarah at various points; the part where Arnie loses the shades in the rescue of Sarah marks the point in the film where he starts becoming humanised, conversely, Sarah dons the shades when she, in effect, becomes a terminator herself - aiming to terminate Miles Dyson in order to alter the future - then losing them again as she regains her humanity. In the Director's Cut, there is an initial shorter dream sequence of the blast, which cuts away like you said it should - the longer dream sequence is then shown later on in the film to give a fuller view of the stakes she's up against, in her view, which then gives the character justification for becoming what she's been fighting against. Also, Eddie Furlong's voice started breaking during the filming of T2, so they had to go back and re-record alot of his lines, however, they kept the original audio for the scene where he's talking with the T800 while repairing the truck to keep the softer voice and make him seem more vulnerable as they build towards the ending.

    I think the main flaw that this movie has, imo, is the ending and its contradictions. The first terminator is a horror movie that has the future as fixed. Kyle Reese was MEANT to be sent back in time to help father John Connor, Skynet was meant to be born. This movie changes the first movie's ending. They deliberately try to change the future and successfully remove the means to produce Skynet. It should thus end the Terminator franchise, as the ending is done. There is no Skynet and no future, and yet without Skynet, John Connor isn't motivated to send Kyle Reese back to the past. This criticism isn't to attack the ending itself, but rather how it relates to future movies and past movies. It contradicts the first movie's ending that the future is set, creates a time paradox, and closes off the possibility of a movie that will be good. Because they defeated Skynet, every future movie HAS to completely ignore the Terminator's sacrifice in T2 and have Skynet exist.

    T2 is far from flawless. First it takes away from the first film. The first film was supposed to be a one off. Sarah destroyed the Terminator, and is impregnated by Reese in order to give birth to John. She drives off into the sunset knowing the dark future which lies ahead and that he son is the Messiah of mankind (that is why he has the initials JC, Connor is a allegory for Christ). T2 mucks it up by saying... We Skynet had just enough time to send back another Terminator before it was taken offline. Is it a good movie ... Yes. Also it was Unnecessary sequel just to make money.
