No Country for Old Terminators

You guys, the Terminator: Genysis (“Genisys”? Is that right? Okay then) trailer is here, and, uh, I don’t know quite what to say. I want to be positive so I guess I’ll go with it looks intriguingly shitty? Definitely stick around for Arnold as the Terminator’s grandpa at the end, though. Come to think of it, a Terminator film in which an aging, out-of-touch cyborg complains about Millennials, Obamacare and how Asian T-1000s are taking away their jobs as liquid-metal killing machines could be pretty fun.

    I gave up on this series after Terminator 2 because I am a reasonable human being. But just in this one specific case. Generally I’m a mess.

    I’LL BE BACK…with 15 sequels to this movie.

    ps. If they are remaking everything why isn’t there a Kindergarden Cop remake yet?

      Oh, a where-are-they-now would be excellent. (FYI, I mistyped it “where-are-they-snow”. WTF.)

      • facetaco says:

        BUT WHERE IS THE DAMN SNOW FLANNY! I want snow! I want to ski, and I want to take Facetaquito and his sled to my friend’s house and tie them up to his husky! I want to make an ice slide coming out my back door so when the dogs want to go out I can bowl them into the yard! I want all of these things!

          OH IT’S COMING. (Over Tgives we asked my sister who lives Up North how much snow she had and she was like, “Oh we had a lot last week, but not so much any more. Most of it’s melted, so now we only have, like, seven or eight inches.” Totally straight-faced. Hahaha, my sister is a lunatic.)

        • facetaco says:

          If she voluntarily lives Up North, then she is DEFINITELY a lunatic.

      • Sota says:

        The weather told me this morning that its supposed to get up to the 50s in the next week…so i wouldn’t hold out too much on that snow anytime too soon.

        Ps. Please send video of Facetaquito + sled tied to the husky. This is something we need to see.

    • facetaco says:

      They tried to, but they wanted to incorporate current events with the police action and it got…dark.

      Hollywood is figuring out how to make Arnold the terrible great-grandpa instead of the terrible dad. Then they’ll make it.

    I need to find a synopsis of the plot. Is this a reboot or an alternative timeline from what has happened before? The trailer looks like it took 15 minutes from each of the four Terminator movies that have been made and said, “Let’s shoot these scenes with a younger cast, then bring in Arnold to bridge the four pieces. Gold!”

    I’m not being negative about it, because I do find the ideas in the movies intriguing. But yeah, after #2 the plot just got thinner and thinner.

    There is a lot of shoulder in this trailer.
