Okay, they brought back the REAL Sarah Connor instead of Daenarys. That could be a step in the right direction... then again since it's been 26 years since a good Terminator movie I'm going to remain in the domain of the cautiously optimistic.

Cue manbaby tantrums because all female leads and no John Connor

Really surprised they didn't go with the classic Terminator theme at some point in the trailer.

Looks like Disney's decided to grant the "it'll never happen though" wish of many a Star Wars fan:

I just hope they get somebody good to adapt the game to screenplay. I mean it's not all that hard, the game and all the most important stuff is already written down and ready for transcribing. Aside from adapting I imagine the second hardest job in making that movie will be casting... especially for the part of Revan if you know what I mean. I don't know about you but Bryan Cranston would be a great Darth Malak.

That looks like a terrible remake of the 2006 movie.

I watched trailers for Terminator 3-5 after this. They all included it. Wonder why not this time?

So the reviews of Godzilla King of the Monsters hit sometime... yesterday or last night. Anyway I'm a little sad and surprised that they aren't very favorable. I'm going to go see it anyway and form my own opinion. As long as they don't keep cutting away from the monsters this time I will probably be happy.

Yikes, 41% on RT with 94 reviews. Well, that just means my expectations will be tempered when I see it.

41% actually isn't a bad RT score. Pretty much means you have a 50/50 shot of loving it or hating it.

The original 50s one didn't exactly get good reviews when it came out, even in Japan.

More than any other movie type, I don't watch Kaiju flicks because they're good. I don't want some truth about the human experience made obvious, or for the boundaries of cinema to be pushed to new and exciting places. I don't need Oscar-worthy performances. I'm 100% there to be entertained at the most basic level. As long as it's not boring, it's done its job.
