And some more movie reviews, this time focusing on the first two parts of 'The Terminator'. If anyone is new to my reviews and want to know what my scores actually mean, check out my post a few posts back.
Easily one of the best films of the 80's.
This is an absolute gem by James Cameron and Schwarznegger. I'd totally recommend this film to any science fiction fan in general.
The acting is brilliant especially by Schwarznegger. He played the role of a computer robot perfectly. Linda Hamilton and Michael Beihn also came good.
I am a huge fan of the 80's vibe in pretty much anything, games (Vice City for example), music, movies etc and the Terminator captured that feel perfectly. From the clothing, to the city, to the night-life, to the cops, everything.
The effects will blow you away. It's actually hard to believe it's an 80's film when you see the effects, just mind-blowing.
The plot is great and intriguing and also not predictable which I like. You will never know what is going to happen next.
A brilliant film overall.
+ Great 80's vibe
+ Great acting
+ Good plot
+ Mind-blowing effects.
Overall Rating: 8.6/10.
Definitely lived up to the reception of the prequel.
Synopsis: This time Arnold takes the role of the good terminator to protect Sarah and John connor from a more advanced Terminator.
Well, honestly I know you guys are going to be disappointed but I don't know what to say about this, since I already stated it's positives in the previous review itself excluding the 80's vibe. Oh, well I'll try to dig up something:
Linda Hamilton is a bit more 'bold' in this film not like the Sarah in The Terminator, a bit more brave to put it that way. I liked that,
The acting by Edward Furlong who was in his teens when the movie shot was also brilliant.
The ending is what I like and is what makes me rate this film above the prequel, it's just well very emotional and it will bring you to tears.
+ Great acting
+ Good effects again
+ Good plot
+ Amazing Ending
Overall Rating: 8.8/10
I'd definitely recommend these two gems to anyone pretty much. These two are a must-watch, I'd definitely put it in my personal list of 'Movies you should watch before you die',
Hope you guys enjoy reading my reviews, if you have any sort of feedback regarding my reviews, like your thoughts on the movies I reviewed or what things would you like me to notice the next time I watch a film.
Terminator 2 was far better than the first one. Can't say the same about the third one, though... I've heard that there's a 5th one in progress, with Arnold back, but I wouldn't expect much from it.
The last movie I've seen? I'm not sure, I think one with Dustin Hoffman starring but I won't do any review this time...
