    The irony is, looking back it was probably Terminator 2 that kickstarted the momentum that gave rise to the modern day cgi blockbuster.

    Completely agree. It's the beginning of toothless, bloated, CGI-ridden, family action movies. For me personally, and not to beat a dead horse, but the films that killed these type of films for me were the Star Wars Prequels, followed by Terminator 3. All that money and none of them have an actual story to tell. Just products with logos from older better movies on them. 20 years later and it's still more of the same. Just bigger and dumber.

    ^^ I really dig everything about Terminator 3, including the story. I watch T2 just for the scenes with Robert Patrick.

    I done bothering with anything other than the first three films at this point. I could watch the original on a loop.

    Best thing I ever did was to stop supporting Hollywood financially or otherwise. I haven't paid money to see a Hollywood film since the late 90s/early 2000s...I should've done it sooner. I swore back then they would never get another shekel out of me.
