You know you're actually right, I'd never looked at it that way, the fact he bumped into her on judgment day is what made her a target in the first place. Wow thanks Q that was bugging me in a big way.
Pedro said:T3 has minimalistic music, yes, now whilst the first two terminators were minimalist when there was an emotion to be had they had a appropriate music in both tense and action scenes, all that seemed to be present in T3s action scenes and tense moments were the sound effects, I find these are the most crucial places for music, you need some kind of constant to counteract the overwhelming barrage of sounds.
True although there still is an element of conincidence there, its best if one actions follows on logically from the last.
I meant the very presence of the paticle accelerator, theres only a few on the planet and they're mostly for study, I'm not sure what practical military use they have.
God no that death was so cheesy, if bratt kid and insane steroid mom hadn't already ruined it then that scene did, T2 was boiled down to a much lesser movie thanks to the character (or lack thereof)...
No the bullets produced no blood most of the time, this really reminded you that it was just a film, I'm squeemish but bullet blood spatters I can watch and are neccessary imo.

That's your opinion. I felt the T-800 allowing itself to be destroyed in T2 was quite emotionally impacting.Pedro said:...that death was so cheesy, if [a brat] kid and [his] insane steroid mom hadn't already ruined it then that scene did, T2 was boiled down to a much lesser movie thanks to the character (or lack thereof) and that scene, it had the potential to be greater than the first.
Speaking of blood spattering, I didn't even like the spraying blood when the T-X chopped up Kate's fiancé.Pedro said:No the bullets produced no blood most of the time, this really reminded you that it was just a film, I'm [squeamish] but bullet blood spatters I can watch and are neccessary imo.
Entertainment doesn't necessarily mean comedy. Plus the Terminator films are supposed to be primarily action films, not comedies. Of course, there's nothing with the odd joke, I just felt there was a little too much levity in T3.Pedro said:A movie should first and foremost be entertainment, so for me the comedy was spot on.
No, no, no, I still enjoyed T3, and I'd watch it again, but I was disappointed with how it turned out compared to the T1 and T2.Pedro said:Thats more about [not?] letting yourself enjoy it than it not actually being any good...

Scouring of the Shire was never intended to be in the film, because in a movie it would have displaced the emotional impact of the climax. A movie's gotta end relatively soon after the climax, no ?Pedro said:tRotK: apparently they filmed the ending where the shire was destroyed but "it didn't work" so they've gone back and made a happy one where everyone in the shire is well, I doubt frodo will even have his mental breakdown of sorts.
Don't worry, there is still much much much more to be discovered, and I am pretty sure what Pedro said won't spoil the story a bit for you.ChanceKell said:And thank you so very much for ruining the ending of the LotR trilogy. I appreciate it how you brought in something totally unrelated and explained something nobody asked for.
As fas as I know, we don't even know if we'll see the Shire at all at the end of the movie, some says the movie will end at the Gray Havens.Pedro said:Besides from what I read we're STILL seeing the shire, just not in ruins. Films which end with a blink of an eye can often prove to feel incomplete anyway.
Jackson himself said ROTK was about what was lost, and that the things will never be the same. He is trying to stay faithfull to those themes. Call it "The price of victory"Pedro said:Tolkein was making a very strong point, that things DON'T go back to how they were before, life goes on but not as it did before, people need to rebuiled from the ashes, this is one of my favourite elements of tLotRs, infact if I could only pick ONE thing about the book which made is so great it would be the way it ended, to see the ending I've heard described the entire trilogy of films would seem incredibly pointless, as though it was just another page of history which didn't really matter, that didn't effect future generations.
You can see a list of the changes from book to film with explanations, pros and cons at Tolkien Online's The Complete List of Film Changes."Unfortunately, as wonderful and brillian as that last chapter is, it's not something we believe our film could sustain. You can't have a huge climax that your main characters have been striving for, for three films, and then start the story up again and play out an episodic ending. An audience sitting in the cinema just wouldn't go for it.".
Cheer up, there's a rumor the Huorns made it back into the TTT Extended Edition DVD ! There should also be more ents scenes in it, so it could fill those timing gaps that annoyed you.Pedro said:I've also been hoping that oringinally the ents were scripted to go to isenguard much earlier and then move onto helms deep otherwise merry a pippin spent a good few weeks on treebeards back in that small forest.
