The director of the originals and by far the best in the franchise, James Cameron talks about Terminator Genisys.


After previous directors in the series suggested that James Cameron gave them his blessing its good to see that he is in fact praising this one.

We recently got the privilege to see 20 mins of the film and I loved what I saw. They have brought some great aspects of what the originals had and rather then try to forget the past they have recaptured it in new ways. They have turned things you know on their heads adding twists to the film you won’t expect.

Terminator Genisys is the fifth Terminator movie in the franchise but clearly James Cameron doesn’t agree with that saying

“The new film, which in my mind I think of as the third film”

If you need to reboot a franchise, respecting the previous instalments is the way to go about it. That’s why I think other sequels like “Salvation” have failed to engage the audience. They just didn’t have the underlying story or they made up aspects of the film that didn’t make sense. Lets be honest with each other Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines was horrible. rather then going with new idea, they just rehashed T2 and spoofing on certain scenes like the bar scene.

Kill it now…Burn it.
