T3 would have been perfect if the TX just walked around naked the whole entire time...

I think the biggest plot hole of the first film is:

Why would a Terminator need a gun with a scope on it?

Call of duty has taught me that it automatically makes my gun more accurate. So with the T-800's natural accuracy, plus the scope, his accuracy should be the full bar!

A scope merely allows you to miss more precisely.

Yes, he really needed to be accurate to gun down that woman in her home six times from point blank range.

Ishkur: There are, undoubtedly, many more models, quite possibly hundreds (collect 'em all!). It is peculiar that they keep using the same model for these time travel missions, but hey -- it's just a movie.


They explained in the third movie that the Arnold model was used because of the other one's connection with John Connor. Why the same model was used in the second movie as the first, that's where "it's just a movie" comes in. But they did show in a flash back that there are different models. They all have to be big though I guess to hold the endo skeleton.

But what if you throw in Left 4 Dead 2's laser sights? Those are suppose to increase accuracy as well. Then again, in T1, did the T-800's pistol have a scope and laser site?

That's all he used for the first half of the movie.

Plus he sees in red so he wouldn't even be able to see the laser scope. But it looked cool and back then it was new to me.

Terminator 3 > Terminator: Salvation.

/that movie was so corny

3 MOVIES. 3 movies setting up the Future War. And the first in the "new trilogy" focuses on... a tangential non-canon character? A 3rd season of The Sarah Connor Chronicles would've done a better job.

Thats why I thought he had a scope on his pistol. It was an over the barrel laser sight. It has been to long since I watched T1 and T2. Thanks for reminding me.

That was a pretty good show, got the box set. It obviously wasn't very expensive.

Consider this: An equivalent laser sight can now be built right into the handgrips of a gun, instead of being some huge tube on top of a big pistol.

Do we even know he has a permanent internal scope? He does in some shots but not all.

Not necessarily.

I actually get the impression from the films that the red coloring of his view is a representation of near-infrared vision. It shouldn't be taken as literal that he can only see in red, either: When Sarah asks him in T2 if he can see anything after he turns the headlights off in the car, he says "I see everything". That suggests multispectral vision, and some sort of ambient light amplification.

Flint Ironstag: Jaws75: You just refuse to admit that T2 is a poorly written film, don't you? Here's the facts: Jim Cameron needed a hit after The Abyss tanked at the box office, so he made a Terminator sequel with Arnold as the good guy so he could prove to the studios that he can made blockbuster films. He plan worked because Arnold was popular enough at the time and the morphing special effects for the T-1000 were still new and they wowed audiences, but that doesn't mean that T2 is actually a good sequel.

It's a good action film. It's biggest problem is that the script clearly keeps us in the dark about Arnie being the good guy and Patrick being the baddie, right up to the point they both catch up with John, but the movies marketing was months of "Arnie is back! And this time he's a good guy!!"

Hell the trailer just about gives away everything.


Not as bad as the trailer to "what lies beneath." I thought it was a joke when then tried to throw a a red herring in. It was as if the usual suspects trailer showed you who Keyser size was, with the character saying "I am Keyser size."

x23: dittybopper: Ebenator: PirateKing: Also, plastic Arnold from Salvation was silly looking.

My lord, THIS. If you can't get Arnold, don't fake it. That fake Arnold was stupid.

You remember the scene in "The Running Man", where they digitally superimposed a face on an actor? That's just what they did for that scene in Salvation in real life.

the head they scanned to make that face swap wasn't technically even Arnolds. it was a couple generations removed.

they scanned the mold used to make the cheesy looking animatronic Arnold from the first movie (when he cuts his eye out). the body they used was the guy that played Arnold in some biographical film about him.

i actually thought it was decently effective in Salvation though. if they tried doing it for an entire movie... that would be pretty stupid.

my bigger issue is that the T-800 is supposed to be an "infiltration unit" designed to sneak into human compounds. seems like if they all look the same it kind of defeats the purpose. in the original Terminator they show that flash-forward with a non-Arnold looking T-800 getting into a base. but pretty much ever since then it has been all T-800s all look like Arnold. seems counterproductive.


Perhaps there is a second variety

Fano: Perhaps there is a second variety


There is a second variety. Watch the first film, the infiltration unit that manages to get into the humans hiding place isn't Arnold, it's Franco Columbu:

Consider this. That even isn't the entire laser system. The battery pack was hidden in his jacket, with a power cord running up his sleeve.

FTFA:

"If we waited for the return of several films, some are sequels and others are adapted to 2013, as actors that they have not made any films, this is the turn of Arnold Schwarzenegger who after a flop on the big screen now returns with "Terminator 5"."

That's the first paragraph of the article. I stopped there. Is there actual, credible, news about a terminator 5? This aint it..
