ChanceKell said:but about four versions of T2. So, I watched it again. It was during the credits that I became confused.. The ending of Terminator 2 was clear: Judgement Day didn't happen. Period. Sarah Connor becomes an old lady, John becomes a senator and has kids. So... how the heck did they come up with T3?

Huh? I must have missed that bit. I thought Arnie in T3 was a T-850 or something. Those basic psychology upgrades and such. He (It?) did seem to know more than the T-800 in T2.Mav23 said:...they called the T-800 the T-101.
I knew the T-X had an endoskeleton like the T-800, but I didn't know about the "liquid metal" skin, so beforehand I was wondering what happened to the T-1000 technology. It was a nice surprise to see the two mixed together. A sort of 'best of both worlds' idea, even though it proved to be the T-X's downfall when it got crushed by the second helicopter.Lord_Nathrakh said:...i did like her ability to be a cross between the t1000 and arni...
Did they explain why she has that? IIRC, time travel was only possible for organic beings, hence the "living tissue" around the T-800.Lord_Nathrakh said:...i also liked the plasma launcher on her arm...
Agreed.Quarto said:In the original, the special effects were there to propel the plot onwards. Here, the plot is there to propel the special effects onwards.
I never thought a director could make that much of a difference, but I really miss James Cameron influence in T3. I also thought T-X wasn't really that scary, not as scary as the T-1000, anyway. In fact, it was almost humorous how it looked so prim all the time (aside from its entry, of course).Quarto said:In the hands of an inept director, making her female only served to highlight the fact that the terminator can be neither male nor female - it's just a machine, with no personality whatsoever.
T2 wrapped things up nicely, I was disappointed how T3 ripped everything open, and just left things hanging. At least it explains the time paradox of Cyberdyne blowing up, yet the Terminators still existing afterwards.Quarto said:The ending of the film... the first two films were very conclusive in their ending - they were designed to stand alone and *not* make room for sequels. And that was great.
I know this has been explained in later posts, but I never saw or even heard of that ending.ChanceKell said:The ending of Terminator 2 was clear: Judgement Day didn't happen.
