  • Paramount Comic-Con panel formally apologises for Terminator Genisys

    Movie Feature | Ali Gray | 12th July 2015

    Paramount Pictures and Skydance Entertainment hosted a packed hall at this weekend's Comic-Con convention in San Diego, where they formally apologised to fans for the cinematic abomination that was Terminator Genisys. "We're so sorry," Marketing VP Jerry Steinback told the assembled fans: "It's the worst thing we've ever done, and we made four Transformers movies."

    Movie Review | Ali Gray | 1st July 2015

    Terminator Genisys represents everything that is wrong with modern movies. Absolutely everything. It is a hopelessly contrived revisit to a once famous franchise, long since dragged through the mud and reanimated - for the third time - in the hopes that it can repeat past tricks. It is a reboot that fails to perform the basic function of a reboot - to start afresh with a blank canvas - instead preferring to muddy the waters of an already terminally confusing timeline. Worst of all, it is chronically boring and manages to make a movie about a robot uprising seem about as exciting as the launch of Tidal. In short, it is the worst film of the year by far; a catastrophically bad moviegoing experience that not only manages to insult fans of the first (and only) two decent Terminator movies but manages to botch the franchise to such an extent you wonder if even the 12-year-olds it's aimed at will be impressed by its static action and needlessly convoluted plot.

  • Terminator Genisys is clearly different from all the other Terminator movies

    The Terminator (1984)

    Terminator 2: Judgement Day (1991)

    Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines (2003)

    Terminator Genisys (2015)

    I mean, apart from the fact that Arnold Schwarzenegger's character absolutely has to appear in all of them and he will at some point, without fail, sustain an injury that destroys half his face exposing one iconic red eye. Apart from that, it's a totally new concept. (*waits for 'Hasta la Vista' scene*)

    Because we have been seriously starved of Arnie's presence in the Terminator franchise, right? Guh. Even the one he wasn't in, he was in.
