Operation: Terminator

Week one-seventy-three of Operation Graphite – theme: Terminator.

So far the reviews are a little disappointing, but part of me is still curious what this new attempt at reinvigorating the Terminator franchise will accomplish. So many who grew up in the 80’s and 90’s still adore films and shows from that era, so bringing back these properties seems like a great idea, but rarely do these reboots, remakes, and rehashes ever seem worth it. Fury Road was the only film this summer to absolutely excel at rebooting a story. While I still want to return to many of these worlds (still waiting for that Airwolf feature) if you’re gonna do it, you have to do it right.

We are slogging though summer blockbuster season, and there are still months yet to go. We’ll take a break from movies for a while, as there is more to summer than just the cinema.
