Terminator 3 - Spoiler

Save you money and your time, and wait for this one to hit DVD. It was not even close to the caliber of the first two movies. Sure you will get your 20 good one liners from Arnie, but that is about it. Action was ok (I would take the Matrix any day over this one),writing and acting was crap. They just should not have made this movie without James Cameron directing. It was a real disappointment for me

The previews don't even look exciting. Even with the chick.

Yeah Larry I should not have high expectations for a sequel, but T2 rocked, so I though this one would be at least half as good.

I actually liked the movie, it could have been a little better but I liked it. I definately liked it much more than the matrix 2, now that was a dissapointment.

Of course, it is hard to calculate the "woohoo we're out of the house without the kid" factor...I even thought Matrix 2 was OK.

I enjoyed it but not stellar. I'm greatful they didn't rip off the special effects from The Matrix that are being over-used in most other movies, esp. Charlie's Angels. I didn't care for the way the story is developing and the woman character over-played the robot characteristics. I guess I'll see when the next in the series comes out.

Yea, the film is not too bad, at least it didn't have a terrible ending like most movies out today. Fairly well played, decent action scenes borderline too much action... I liked the shrink scene at the cemetary. That was just precious but it was like an inside joke that nobody other than me got. I was the only idiot laughing and everyone just looked at me like I was ... an idiot.

Call me a truth screamer, but it seems like nothing but a totally calculated, intensively overhyped, overexposed, money making entertainment product with absolutely no other intent or priority. The more popular with the mass public and hyped a "summer blockbuster" movie is, the less I want to waste my time and money on it.

Also, I just read that it cost $173,000,000 to make- pretty sick if you think about it- making it one of the most expensive movies in history.

Can we please stand in line with the other sheep to give them our money?
