Sound On Sight Radio #121 – The Terminator Franchise

121

Please keep in mind this is the second of a two part special to the Terminator franchise.  Listen to Episode 120 first!

In 1984, director James Cameron created the Terminator franchise. His film of the same name explored a war between humanity and sentient machines, in which victory could only be assured by sending a naked bodybuilder back in time. Seven years later, he returned with Terminator 2: Judgement Day, replacing the original film’s lean, gritty action with the pyrotechnics of a swollen Meatloaf video. When Cameron temporarily retired from making blockbusters to spend his fortune on submarines and delusions of grandeur, director Jonathan Mostow took the reins of the third film in the franchise, introducing a busty female Terminator seemingly inspired by a Maxim-magazine wet dream. And in 2009, Terminator: Salvation hit the big-screen, the first Terminator film not to involve time travel. Tonight, in Part 2 of our Terminator special, Sound on Sight takes a look at Part 3 and 4 of the long running science fiction franchise.

    Good show except one thing. You guys forgot to mention how much the new Terminator movie sucks!

    No shit. I was going to say that on the show but I just assumed you were right for bringing it up.

      Well, it’s not like I’m totally crazy. She apparently is part First Nations, and she did play Starfire in Pathfinder.

  4. Al says

    Right. So, apparently Moon Bloodgood, about whom I went on a lengthy rant regarding seeing First Nations actors on screen, is actually Korean. So replace all the First Nations stereotypes I was glad they avoided with a list of Asian ones.
