Terminator: Genisys just might make me a believer or at least get me to a theater


I have not always been a fan of the Terminator genre, I think it goes back to how I view the zombie apocalypse as being a catalyst for my own demise. Just the same, I have given it the old college try and can say that I truly enjoyed Terminator 2: Judgment Day, starring Edward Furlong, he had the kind of angst that appealed to a kid like me. By contrast that was the only one that received a rewind rating from me. Just the same, I have a good feeling in my gut about this one. The concept for the movie alone is solid and has good structure, plus it will likely confuse a few people which I find fascinating for a good long chuckle. I am intrigued by the actor line up, they are giving us Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), Jai Courtney (A Good Day to Die Hard), Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty) and of course Arnold Schwarzenegger (Expendables). So like I said, I have a really good feeling about this cast, the best part is they are just this side of Hollywood so they will keep the movie going without diverting attention in a different direction from where the viewers need to be watching. As an avid movie/entertainment viewer, nothing takes away from a solid movie than the actors just not being the right fit for the movie. Think about it, there are tons of movies out there that just didn’t click the way it would have if they went in another direction for the casting or even for the movie itself, please reference Topher Grace as Venom, Hayden Christensen as Darth Vader, Keanu Reeves in Dracula, even Denise Richards starring as a physicist in a Bond film. Think on those painful moments for a second. Now think of the possibilities, John Connor sending his soldier Kyle back, only for Kyle to learn that everything has changed due to everything else they have done previously. Its a very smart approach from a writers standpoint, so yes people I am declaring it now, I am heading to the theater to check this one out so you should too. My gut is usually always right, especially when it comes to a good action flick. Take a look at the trailer and let me know what you think, are you going to take a chance on this one? Happy Movie Watching…..
