Wow.

Even if you grade that ending on a curve, that's pretty farkin' stupid.
 
2008-06-03 01:30:54 AM  
I can see that happening.
I can also see some Hollywood exec screaming in his chair, "It's brilliant!! It's such a twist!!"

Well, McG *is* directing it. That makes it all the more likely.

It would work a lot better if it was a Broadway musical

Sinto: It would work a lot better if it was a Broadway musical

In all seriousness, yes.

Even better as off-Broadway.

It's real - don't read it if you don't want the end ruined.

Not saying it's good - just that it is the real deal.

ALERT THE SPOLIERS!!!

Reminds me of those wonderful spoiler threads we had back when the final Harry Potter came out.
 
2008-06-03 09:12:16 AM  
Well, I just read the spoiler. I also vomited on my keyboard.
 
2008-06-03 09:14:58 AM  
Don't get all spolier than thou, AICN.
 
2008-06-03 09:16:14 AM  
I like Terminator of all flavors. I think John Connor dying in the first movie of a new trilogy and being a Terminator the rest of the time is perhaps the dumbest idea of all time.
 
2008-06-03 09:18:25 AM  
get rid of the john conner idea and let "the rock" be the new terminator. dwanye johnson would be a pretty big terminator.
 
2008-06-03 09:23:22 AM  
How exactly would this plan work? It just screams stupidity on a Face/Off level. You know...I don't think this would work unless Terminator suddenly switched over to a Looney Tunes universe where anybody can dress up as anybody using modern day cleaning utensils and somehow get away with it.
 
2008-06-03 09:25:42 AM  
Maybe it's like mission impossible and they make these really cool masks so all the resistance looks like John Connor.
 
2008-06-03 09:25:54 AM  
You still don't get it, do you? They'll make this film. That's what they do. That's all they do! You can't stop them. They'll wade through you, reach down your throat, and pull your f*cking wallet out.

Listen. And understand. Hollywood is out there. It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are broke.
 
2008-06-03 09:29:20 AM  
Terminator 5 will feature a terminator with the appearance of an 8-year-old. They run up to you, start crying, and say 'But I poop from there!', to the horror of a crowd of onlookers. You can imagine what happens next. Terminowned.

You win.

Jeeez, Subby, any chance of a warning and advice to scroll down to the very bottom of the article to read the actual SPOILER and avoid all that farkin' dork garbage nonsense before it?

Anyway...

Arnold back as the Terminator? How is that a spoiler? That's brilliant news!

Finally, a more accurate version of Phillip K. Dick's Second Variety!

Terminator V..for Vendetta!

Terminator 3: We couldn't get Linda Hamilton back, so we're gonna say Sarah Connor died of leukemia. Because, you know, why bother having such a badass go out in a hail of gunfire or something. Also, remember that whole ending to T2 that would have logically prevented a third film? Umm, yeah - just forget that, mmmkay? There's money out there, and we want it. So fork it over. NOW.

2008-06-03 09:58:44 AM  
Not only is that a stupid idea, but it is just disgusting. Wasn't T4 supposed to be PG-13? I have heard nothing good of this project except that it stars Christian Bale. I fear for his career.
 
2008-06-03 10:05:01 AM  
All T4 needs is John Travolta or Nutfark Cruise in it to be a complete pile of steaming cow dung.
 
2008-06-03 10:10:42 AM  
I hate that spoiler almost as much as I hate AICN


Harry Knowles needs sending to Detroit. After his head is cut off.

I heard the twist in the third episode of the new Terminator trilogy is John Conner's best pal, Kyle Reese, dies, so he slips on his skin, goes back in time, farks his own mother and she gives birth to a half-human, half-robot cylon.
 
2008-06-03 10:23:23 AM  
So I guess the point of this twist is so that John Connor is a total badass killer robot for the other two movies? I can't wait.

cubsfan07 for that may your team remain in first place for the rest of the season.

Can someone explain the spoiler (in hidden text, if possible)... I read the AICN thing, but I still don't get it. Something about skin?

luckybastard: Can someone explain the spoiler (in hidden text, if possible)... I read the AICN thing, but I still don't get it. Something about skin?

I find most things on that site impossible to read. I can read geek-speak, but theirs is like a middle-easterner's version of geek: overdrawn and over-exaggerated to the point that you don't know what's is literal and what is hyperbole.

Executed man's remains are applied to terminator's frame (for apparently no reason). John Conner dies and the same thing happens to his remains.

They did that in Screamers. Peter Wellers best work outside of Engineering an Empire.

Bah. Who gives a shiat. Anyone who goes to see T4 deserves getting shiat on by the filmmakers.

/Still loves T1.

you f*ckin morons at fark need to know that saying there is a "twist" at the end is also a form of spoiling the movie... what's the fun of a twist if you know it's coming?

It is a bit more understandable if you try to read it all in

For those who read the ending... (despite its utter awfulness)...

I can see Terminator 5 being an interesting flick. John Connor will undoubtedly kick some ass. It is a cop out, to do what they are doing, (thus preventing the need for a leading Arnoldbot) but I can see this being no less horrible than Terminator 3.
 
2008-06-03 12:46:20 PM  
So basically it's going to be Terminator 3 meets Face/Off meets a piece of shiat.
 
2008-06-03 12:56:56 PM  
This is a great idea (for film execs!) and a fantastic twist (if you are an idiot!)

But I find myself (almost) liking the idea. For one, the movie couldn't be worse than Terminator 3 (could it?) and also, it presents some interesting sequel ideas...

For more on why this doesn't suck, I will now pimp my blog to you. (new window)

I've never read the end of a movie before today.

It depends on how it's presented, I suppose. It might be kinda cool. I wish I hadn't read it though.
