I've probably mentioned a few times that Terminator (1984) is my all time favorite movie. I loved Terminator 2: Judgment Day as well, but whatever came after doesn't even deserve to carry the same title.
And now, we're going to be served with another bastardized version that is Terminator: Genisys. Why, oh why? Surely for the money, but this looks so bad I wonder if it won't flop. And the cast! Who in their right mind did the casting for this movie? Emilia Clark aka Daenerys Targaryen as Sarah Connor? Really?
This is who Sarah Connor is:
She's strong, she's tough, she's a badass fighter who can stand against the whole world. Plus, Linda is outstanding as Sarah. Her face, her body, her voice, everything is so perfect. Also, Linda Hamilton is just a very good actress, which is hard to say about baby-faced Emilia and her wooden acting.
So the studio execs want to tell me that this is Sarah Connor?
Why does she always carry this same "I'm-a-little-lost-helpless-Targaryen-princess" look? Sarah Connor was young and scared in Terminator (1984), but she was never inept, and her voice didn't sound so weak and childish. I also can't say anything good about the new Kyle Reese. I can't remember the name of the actor, but for me, the only Kyle Reese is Michael Biehn.
Linda and Michael are the only Sarah and Kyle I want to know. Besides, Terminator is not just one of the best sci-fi movies in the world, it also tells one of the most beautiful love stories.
I won't be watching Terminator: Genisys.
