No veggies here... I did, too. Not something you get the urge to rewatch often, but it did its job.



Yeah, T3 and Genysis were both too silly for their own good. In the right light, both can be fun times. But they are the worst of the franchise (without seeing both in ages, I'd still say T3 goes absolute bottom).
T3 is the worst for me. Genisys had some good moments, but overall does not stand up and pretty much is just an outlier as to the continuity of the story. I haven't watched either in ages, but if given a choice I would choose Genisys 3 out of every 5 times.

As for this bust, regardless of what you think of Dark Fate, this has to be one of the most impressive collectibles to ever debut. It's incredible what they are doing with Life Size busts these days. I have no room for them so I will never own more than the single one I do own (Neytiri), but I love to look at them from afar and appreciate anyone who can set up a classy display with them. I love to see them displayed next to a 1/4 or 1/3 of the same character.

I have zero interest in old man Schwarzenegger. THANK GOD. because if this was Stage 4 T2 it would be all over for me.

I'm afraid this Old Man Schwarzenegger BLOWS THE DOORS OFF the Queen Studios T2 bust in terms of likeness and execution.

I watched it last night, for the first time. I thought it was great. I have no idea why people are so troubled by it.

From the "Anti Woke" critics - for whom nothing is ever good, a lot of their nit picking is exactly that. That the film dares to have a female lead, that the film dares to progress the story from being Jon Conner focused (of course, this is gender swapping)....and the list of gripes goes on.

I?m watching it on TNT now do the first time.

What am missing here? I am having trouble finding redeeming qualities about this film aside from old man Schwarzenegger being the cyborg Patriarch of first wives club. What I find upsetting is all of these new and improved Terminators no matter how advanced they are are miles behind the impact the T1000 had in 1991. I?m happy I saw it but I?d put this one in line with genesys behind salvation and FAR behind T3. Not even worth mentioning with 1&2.

I watched T2 and Dark Fate back to back the other night. I think T2 has so much hype and legacy behind it that nothing will come close to it but honestly, both films are just a group of people narrowly avoiding death by the hands of a more advanced terminator over and over. I don't see how anyone could love T2 and dislike Dark Fate.

Have you ever imagined a world with no hypothetical situations?

Yes, I can't imagine why anyone would say it was a great movie unless they were in it or something. I would put it dead last or next to last and it's not due to that stupid "woke" excuse people use either.

I don't hold that against the bust though, it looks great.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

I think for me, you just need to put the movie aside and view this as a legacy piece for the Terminator franchise, a tribute to Arnold. At least that is what I'm telling myself so I order this piece. Still undecided.

When they announced Dark Fate, I was genuinely excited to see it as I've been waiting for a proper T3 for nearly 3 decades.

In the end, all I got was a movie peeing on T2's legacy in the very frst minutes... Needless to say I'm not sure Infinity Studios made the right call on this bust.
