The crazy thing about Dark Fate is that the awful "twist" that ruins everything at the start of the movie was the idea of James Cameron. It's insane, he butchered his own previous success and the franchise that made him a household name. To think he would do the same thing they did to Aliens with Alien 3 is baffling to me.

Anyway, fuck him and fuck this movie. I hope it crashes and burns so this awful story gets no sequels.

Well, I think Cameron has lost his touch in the past decade or so.  He thought that twist would be a good thing for the franchise.  He, also, honestly thinks that there are enough people out there that actually care about the Avatar universe that he can make Avatar sequels for the rest of his career.  A movie that made a shit ton of money off of the Real 3D hype, yet didn't impact popular culture, at all.  People don't know the names of the characters from the film or quote anything from it, either.

I'm soooo glad I got that spoiler early on. I would have been REALLY pissed if I had paid my money to see that (like, TLJ-level pissed).

Yes, Dark Fate will almost certainly be the lowest grossing of the Terminator movies, but it has almost nothing to do with your anti-(whatever you're angry about this time) stance. Try to think a little more objectively about it.

The three movies before this ranged from not very good to terrible. At this point, it has been nearly 30 years since there has been a good Terminator movie. It holds no cache with younger audience and there is only so many times that older fans will get burned before tuning out. Even when the movie is better than it's predecessors, as this one was. Given the franchise history, this movie had to be more than better than the previous movies to get people to come out again. It had to be great. And, frankly, it was just fine. Not great, not terrible. Worth seeing, but maybe not in theaters.

Who's angry?  At this point, I think it's freaking hilarious to watch these films either flop or greatly underperform.  It's cyclical, really.  Director and crew inserts woke message into the film, many times a franchise that has already proven itself, and advertises as such a big deal.  Fans react badly to said message.  Director and/or crew calls those fans misogynist trolls or a similar statement.  Movie performs poorly, either as a whole or against expectations.  Those who agreed with the woke message come up with poor reasons why that woke message and the attacks on the fans had nothing to with the poor performance.  Rinse and repeat.

I was planning on killing myself if it hadn't passed the Bechdel Test.

I'm glad it did, then. Don't want to lose you, man.

Thanks for the sentiment. Much appreciated.

But if there isn't an A-Team reboot-reboot, with a gender swapped cast, confirmed within the the next year or so, I might decapitate myself at the train tracks.

Dark Fate was probably the worst Terminator movie in the series. It was pretty much a rehash of T2 and brought nothing new to series.

After watching it I have to say I never thought the was some agenda or "Woke" thing going on till now. Every movie I love seems to be getting sequels that's just no longer for me.

Don't know if the A-Team thing will happen.  But, I'm sure Hollywood will put something gender swapped out, since it's such an original idea, so don't lay on those tracks anytime soon.

Likewise. I got spoiled and I'm glad I didn't spend my money on this dumpster fire.

Unfortunately I spent money on this and this is the last time James Cameron will get a piece of my money.  I will never trust any of his work he does ever again.  F*** his upcoming Avatar movies lol



Saw the movie today and it was quite fun.
