I think that this should probably be a poll but I will go with T-2 too just because the T-1000 was so amazing, of course it was a way superior storyline aswell.

Why did they go back with a robo-skeleton in T-3?

T1 because T2 was good but Arnie wasnt that good, T3 was crap cos it had so many plot holes in it and the Tx wasnt that good. Oh and are they making a T5?

What happened to T4?

Terminator 2 was definately the best (and the first i saw). It was interesting, good plot and had a fair share of action. I didn't like T3, it just felt wrong.

My sister told me the other day that me and her used to watch T2 all the time when we were little. I recorded it the other day, but still haven't had time to watch it. I've seen about the last 20 minutes though, and I love the special effects. I really like T1 though, it's pretty cool. Haven't seen T3 yet  smile

I like all three. T-3 does fit if you consider that humanity's ultimate dream is to not do anything for themselves. Then it's not all that hard to imagine someone else building Skynet. As for the other plot holes. *shrugs* Wasn't too bothered by it. T-2 is definately the best though.

The people who don't like T3 because of the plot holes should just watch the movie for what it is. Don't pick holes in it, don't think too much, it's action, so just enjoy. I can't tell you how good it felt to hear Arnie say "It's time" in T3, after over a decade of waiting...

Anyway, T2 is my fave, and probabaly my fave movie ever along with The Matrix. I just love the whole thing, it kicks so much ass, and before The Matrix, to me no other action movie came close. I love T1 and T3 as well though, I love the whole trilogy. I rate T1 and T3 about equal, with T2 being the peak in the middle   smile

T2. Part 3 didn't suck as badly as I had thought it would from the reviews, but with that pedigree I had hoped for more than a run-off-the-mill action flick.

I really do like T2 like most peopel and T1 was also cool.

The reason I disliked the third film was it screwed with the prinicples of the first two movies. Basically the film said "well the last two films really didn't matter"

It's a contradiction, but at least it wasn't an obvious "saw it coming" ending. My argument against this, is that technically not all of humanity was wiped out. Two people still remained, and defied the odds, they beat the machines, the theme continues, just like in the previous movies...

Thing was that was what was supposed to happen. John Conner had to survive to start the rebelion in the first place.

yeah the action scences were great but it seemed too " light hearted " compared to T1, that probably sounded wierd but it wasnt as dark or evil as the others i mean " talk to the hand" wtf?

  no no  that was worse then Hasta lavista baby.

Ironically, I like T3 for the same reasons.

I like T2 best as I haven't seen al of T1 yet, plus T3 was pretty much a retread of the previous films. And the T-X isn't half as menacing as Robert Patrick, even with her inflatable boobs.

T1: Arnie, Arnie kicking ass, Arnie kicking more ass, nookie, Anrie bot.

It's got everything I'd love in an 80's movie.

Has to be T2, mainly cause the 3D effects for the time were amazing, but not only that the stoiry and action scenes and the DVD rules  big grin, T3 although its a "Film made just for money" i think it was alrighty, but the story did not conclude with the other 2 films :\, anyway i know most of that has been said but i felt like adding a bit move  wink

I like T1 & T2 pretty evenly, but seeing T3 was a waste of my time and money.  Take the first two movies, cram all of the action together, add the bare skeleton of a story and mix well.  That's my recipe for how to make T3 Rise of the Cash Cow.

Me and two of my friends got together and watched the trilogy a month or so ago (none of us had seen any of them before), and the general consensus was that two was better than three which was better than one.  I can't recall any specific reasons why, at the moment, but that's where it stands.  Sooooo... yeah.

T2 is the best. It has the best storyline, and it's just so unstopably rewatchable. Like James Camerons other ultimate sequel (Aliens) it is an improvement on the original.
Second comes T3 (Yes I prefer it to the Original). It's almost as clever as T2, but there are a few too many gimicky one-liners.

I Love the Original film, really I do. But it's still my least favourite. It sets up a wonderfully original concept, put doesn't have the budget or the nerve to fully exploit it (the sequels took care of this). It's a classic, but it has been bettered.
Oh and the ride at Universal kicks ass too!

The problem I had with T3 is that it had very little plot that I could see (and what was there was essentially a retread of T2 with a different ending). The first half of the film is essentially one long chase with lots of very nice special effects.

[Nerd]And let's not even get in to the problem of the T-X controlling other machines![/Nerd]

Admittedly the ending was unexpected, but the cynical fact of the matter is that they did it to set up the sequels. What would have been a more ironic ending would have been to have John Connor kill himself to save the future - because it would  destroy the self-fulfilling circle.

T2. i just watched T3 like 10 mins ago, and while it was pretty, it didn't have much substance. i would, however like to see one more sequel, that being one set in the actual future during the war between robots and humans.

T2 was the best, but don't dump on T3 anyone. Obviously Judgement day had to happen, otherwise Arnie would not have come back in the first place, as he would not have been invented at all.
