Why the fark would they remake it? They needed to close the story, ending with Connor sending Reese back to 1984, not just retell the whole farking thing.

This. The Terminator series does not need a reboot. The original movie still holds up really damn well. There is plenty of room in the terminator universe open for exploration and movie making without remaking the whole damn thing. I, too, would love to see a movie of the "final" battle against Skynet during / at the end of which Reese gets sent back. Reese described it in the first movie: "Their defense grid was smashed. We'd won."

I want to see that.

I love Brie Larson without reservation, but Emilia Clarke is the better fit for the original Linda Hamilton.

A trilogy needs a mousy actresses for the original Sarah is just a down on her luck waitress after all,
that actress then has to buff out and be a reasonable guerrilla fighter in the second
then a wise and wizened old lady in the 3rd who directs the fighting knowing that they will win but it will mean sending her true love to his death,

Another reboot? Sigh....

Well, if they do, the whole story in the first one should take place in 1984 rather than re-boot it to have a terminator arrive to today's date. In 1984, there were unique problems that we don't face today when it comes to a killer machine from the future trying to kill you.

Sarah had to find a pay phone to call the cops, and was told to stay in the club. Today, she could just use a cell phone. (For example.) Back then, there weren't cameras everywhere, so getting someone to believe you would be much tougher than today, where everyone has a camera and can post instantly online proof that a killer robot from the future exists. (Sarah calls a flash mob to slow the terminator down.)

I'd rather the hero of the movie was a manic pixie dream girl. If they're doing a reboot, they have a chance to go back in time and undo mistakes.

Also this would mean Hannah Murray can be in the running for the part.

Die in a fire. She was punchworthy.

I just read that when Halcyon went bankrupt, Joss Whedon offered them $10k for the rights to the Terminator franchise.

This brings up a possibility.

Sarah Michelle Gellar as Sarah Connor!

I don't get the need to reboot this....oh wait: $$$$

The original was great fun. It along with Alien and Bladerunner defined a gritty anti-scifi. This was lightning in a bottle: not easily recaptured.

To reboot it really just sullies it. All that being said, Emelia Clarke isn't a bad choice, if you have to do it.

I'll never understand why people hated the new one so bad. It's closer to the books about Conan than the Arnie ones were, had better effects, and better acting. Granted I know that's a low bar to clear, but I thought the new one was just fine. Was it the lack of the cheese factor the original Arnie movies had?

really? it lost all of the charms of the original. the original was a strange, slow flick with odd pacing, terrible-but-somehow perfect acting and amazing music. the new one was 300 without the novelty

The last two Terminator films were shiatty enough to poison the waters. Now if they want to get asses into the seats they're just going to have to start from scratch. Or, you know, just come up with a new idea for a totally new franchise instead of rehashing an old one, but let's face it, this is Hollywood we're talking about. That shiat ain't happening. At the very least it's unlikely.

It would have been great if they'd gotten more into topics like hacking, privacy, survivalism, the surveillance state, and so on.

Really, they had a golden opportunity to make something really special.

I also just love that dude from Deadwood.

Yeah, too bad about the rushed ending that really didn't make much sense in the context of things. I would have loved another season of John Henry development. And I'm not so sure Manson's T-1000 was pro-human so much as it was "Leave me alone to do my thing and I won't fark with you.", or at least that's the way it seemed to me. Skynet apparently didn't want to leave her alone since she had independent thought. Again that's what I got out of it.

In other words, the cheese factor. I mean I get the cheese factor to a certain degree, I do, but I just don't always enjoy it. I'm not saying the Jason Momoa one was good, but I thought it was better than the original couple movies. That said, I do agree with you on the music, and I think that's part of what allows people to ignore the crappy writing, lame acting and oddball pacing. The music made the movie seem like it was an epic journey instead of a simple quest for riches and vengeance.

The thing is, the Conan stories were originally just old-school pulp fiction, and the original movie captured that vibe perfectly. You don't want "good" acting because it isn't a "good" story. It can't be produced or judged by conventional standards. I mean, obviously it can, but it's just going to be a steaming pile of crap.

I couldn't make it thru half an hour of the new Conan. The characters inspired utterly no love.

In the original movie, I found the old magician and Subatai (?) totally loveable characters. Conan was okay too, you cared about him getting his vengeance against Darth Vader's voice. That made me want to watch.

The problem with action movies generally is utter lack of characterization in so many of them. That's why wiseguys like Will Smith and Bruce Willis own the genre; they can make you care no matter how much the script ignores characterization.

The biggest thing I hated about the flick was the use of the original's exact same name and logo.  Changing the origin - regardless of its lack of source-accuracy - while keeping the same name and logo told me they required old fans to be into it but felt they needed to kick me in the balls about liking the original.  If you're gonna reboot, don't lure me in with the exact same MFing logo as if you're *not* rebooting.  TThe film itself was most cromulent, but the presentation had this psycho girlfriend 'I hate you but why won't you love me!?!?' schism going on.

100% agree.  I really enjoyed Salvation when it came out simply because of the opening sequence where A-10s shoot up terminators.  After re-watching it recently I realized that the rest of the movie really is a steaming pile of crap, but can we please see a film about the actual war between the machines and humanity?  Have Connor be a commanding general in the background with Reese leading a squad of humans against terminators in a storyline out of Band of Brothers (+ machines), capped off with the last-ditch effort to win the war in said "defense grid smashing" and Reese getting sent back.
