You're all going to love this. Taken from Dark Horizons:

Arnold Schwarzenegger: "Is this my last Terminator? No. I've so many more years left. I'm totally full of energy and thanks to my weight training and cardio-vascular training I'm in great shape. I consider this the middle term of my career. Go out and see the movie. The more successful the movie is, the faster we can make Terminator 4".

Is that sarcasm or the inability to retire with dignity?   confused

How can it be bad? Have you seen the woman playing the new terminator.

Mind you - from the trailer I swear I saw elements of Budgie the Flying Helicoptor, well, I saw a mini helicoptor flying about the place. Actually, maybe not. But if so - the movie could potentially be torn to pieces.

Actually T3 has a good chance to be a pleasant surprise for me, because I don't expect anything at all from that movie...

I just saw the trailer - the only good think was the original Terminator music, which isn't going to be used in T3.

My expectations are low.

Probably the latter. The trouble with actors (no matter how machinelike they may be) is that they can't speak in emoticons.

The first 2 Terminator flicks were great, they're the only films where arnies inability to act is actually an advantage but I don't have high hopes for this one, Arnies getting old, Linda Hamiliton isn't in it but thats probably a good thing cos shes old and no longer wankable and James Camereron isn't in it but thats probably good too cos I lost all respect for him when he made that flamingly homerotic Titanic.

Cum to think of it may not be so bad after all, that female Terminator looks hot, I woudn't mind sperminating on that terminator.

I don't hold much confidence in the new Terminator flic. Not only are the original producers and such not even involved in the film, from what I've read about test screenings and the like, the movie hasn't scored too well. A friend of my sister's out in LA has actually seen a preview showing of it, and was whole heartedly not impressed. I'll wait for DVD, or the cheapo theater.

The latest trailer looks incredible! I honestly had goosebumps watching it! Whoever made that first teaser trailer should be shot! The impression you get from seeing the latest one will restore your faith. From what i've heard the film is a very pleasent surprise! The general opinion is that it doesn't quite top #2, but it's actually better than part 1!

nah, T3 is not better than T1. I dont even think its really fair to compare them. I mean T1 was made decades before. What I like about T3 is how we learn more about Skynet, and how Judgement day really takes place. I did notice a few discrempinces in T3 that I did not like seeing. The biggest one being how the fuel cells of the 101 go nuclear after being damaged. If this held true in T1 then Sara would have been killed after crushing the first model 101 in the first movie. In T2 the 101 would have blown up after having that steel rod jammed though his main power source. Other than that T3 was a great movie, but I think that making a T4 would really be pushing it.

T3 is a very worthy sequel. Here's my review.
Terminator 3
Terminator 3 is'nt just a rehash of the first two but rather an episode in a possibly long running series. It implements a different style accompanied by a different director which is an healthy change to the series. The new model terminator the T-X is smarter, faster and stronger but is'nt as frightening as the male terminator in T2. Famke Janssen (X-men) was originally to play the T-X but turned it down because it clashed with her X2 filming. I personally think she would've been the better T-X. Arnold is back and as good as he was in the previous installments. Nick Stahl who plays John Conner does a good job, so does Clair Danes who plays Cathrine Bruster. The special effects were brilliant but i have to say i liked the look of the liquid terminator in T2 more. The car chase through the steets of LA surpasses even the Matrix Reloaded in brilliance. The action sequences on a whole are well planned and memorable. The movie is supposedly the second most expensive movie ever made and it shows. Highly enjoyable addition to the series as it delves deeper into the rise of the machines. The ending may surprise viewers as it was very risky.

I saw it last night, it is brilliant, even my friend, who has been waiting 10 YEARS for it and had towering expectations for it was appeased, The storyline's fantastic, the action is incredible and Ah-nuld... Well, who can say a bad word about him in any capacity (cept that flick where he was pregnant) the big man is back, brillnt and better than ever (and I thought a 50-something Terminator wouldn't pan out, boy is my face red)

Jah bless you Mr Schwarzenegger, and God speed in making Terminator 4, True Lies 2 and whatever endevor you may have coming for your twilight years (even if it's a sequal to Total Recall, I won't say boo.)

i assumed it would be crappy, but it was just as intense, if not more so, than T2 (and i am one of the people who loved T2); i haven't decided if i liked it more than T1 though. you can't really compare them; i mean, T1 started it all.

ah-nuld was great; i was skeptical, but he hardly looks like he's aged a day, much less 20 years. nick stahl and claire danes were also enjoyable to watch, and i thought that kristanna loken, as the female T-X, was genuinely creepy; even more unsettling  than the T-1000 in T2.

i also loved how the makers of the movie did not take themselves so seriously, with all those smart, self-aware jokes (the bit with the sunglasses had me rolling.) it also had a very dark tone overall, despite the humor.

brilliant  script; i thought it was stupid how linda hamilton wasn't coming back, but they used her death very well plotwise. it actually seemed to fit.

the bleak, suprising, depressing ending was great. don't know if they should make a T4 though; they might wanna quit before running it completely into the ground.

He's a slightly different model... I don't have anything around to check, but he's like, ten different. This could account for the exploding.

Spoilers...

Did anyone else watch this movie and imagine Bender doing commentary? *bombs explode* "Eh, they had it coming. Don't mess with robots!"

I had no expectations when I went to the movie theater... but... WOW!

I LOVED that movie! Full of action but not too dumb like most action movies.

Why do we have to wait until August 1st here in the UK!!! I can't wait! And if traditionaly sarcastic, hard-to-please, Internet fans LOVED the movie, then it's gotta be good!!
I love the Terminator movies, but if you think about it it's a miracle that they are all so great.
#1 was a low budget sci-fi film by a young mainly unknown director who's last film was Piranah 2. Hardly encouraging. And yet it went on to become a global sensation, and one of the greatest movies of all time!
#2, OK so James Cameron turned out to be a genius and proved that he knew how to make good sequels (Aliens). But surely he couldn't do it again. The law of sequels said that T2 had to be poor. But no, Cameron cheated fate again and made a film that is actually superior to #1 in almost every way!
Then over 10 years later, without James Cameron, and no original cast members except Arnold, T3 goes into production. Surely The Terminators luck has been used up. Everyone knows it's going to suck big time! What can the film do that the other two havent already done!?
And yet again (apparently) it cheats fate again! God I can't wait to see it!
Although T3 is getting a good reception, I heard that it's flopped at the box office on opening weekend! Is this true! Because it has to be one of the biggest grossing films in history in order to break even, let alone make a profit!

i know, really,  it cost $175 million to make. but it didn't really bomb, i mean, it grossed $44 million on its opening weekend, and has totaled $115 million so far. not as big as some movies this summer, but not exactly a flop either; though probably below studio estimates.

Oh, that's alright, I heard it was only $13 million! It's of to a decent start, that's still a good haul. People are just getting too used to the all-time-records getting smashed almost every few weeks! Don't forget that there's still all the money from abroad to come in yet. I'll do my part when it opens here in the UK.

Same here. And yeah, there's still all the money from abroad, and Arnie is popular worldwide, and his movies often gross a large percentage outside the US  smile

Just remember "Waterworld". It was considered to be a huge fiancial disaster, but actually it made money after being released around the world.

And Arnie rocks ... always!   cool
