I generally don't consider action movies the best platform for storytelling. Minus the action scenes, the one-liners, and Schwarzenegger you've got not much better than a B movie.

Edit: it got good, not great reviews, which kinda backs up my point: http://www.metacritic.com/movie/terminator-2-judgment-day

Edward Furlong's dialogue doesn't really age all that well.

Everything else stands up ok IMO as far as action flicks go.

Comparing T1 and T2 is a bit like comparing Alien and Aliens IMO.

The initial movies had more emphasis on suspense and horror whereas the sequels were more about big action pieces.

The only thing I liked about T3 was the ending. Everything else was far too derivative.

That's true. I'd forgotten about the humour.

FF to 4:10. The 80s electronic soundtrack is why the original wins.

I also love how 80s movies would overuse smoke effects. And how there are blinds in every scene. I am coining this now - the aesthetics of crap.

You even have that unmistakeable disco feel.

It was so much easier when better was shinier and more expensive.

Sacrilege!

But you were probably 2 when T2 came out, so I guess that explains it a bit.

Ugh, that is not acceptable.

Watch the first one, and consider yourself caught up.

Quentin Tarantino’s Reaction to Christopher Nolan’s ‘Interstellar’

Tarantino said “It’s been a while since somebody has come out with such a big vision to things. Even the elements, the fact that dust is everywhere, and they’re living in this dust bowl that is just completely enveloping this area of the world. That’s almost something you expect from Tarkovsky or Malick, not a science fiction adventure movie.”

Yes, and you are the only one who got it BECAUSE YOU'RE INSIDE TARANTINO'S BRAIN.
