Terminator Goodness

I went and saw Terminator Salvation this afternoon and was so suprised, because I LOVED it!! All that bad press was making me think the film itself was gonna be bad, and it was so the opposite of bad!! One of the things that made it good, was this cutie, Sam Worthington, that guy up there, SO cute and a good actor! He plays Marcus in the film, which is a VERY big role! If it weren't for Marcus, you could say the other films couldn't have happened, even tough they are in the past. And I can't wait to hear him talk in his REAL accent, he is Australian!! Woohoo!! Another hot guy from one of my homelands!! I SO need to visit!!

Anyways, back to the movie. It was so full of action and fighting. There is even, what I believe is a CG version, an appearance by Ahhhhhnold's Terminator. And you get introduced to a teenage Kyle Reese and get to see John's reaction when he meets the boy who will grow up to be his friend who he sends back to protect him mom and BE his Dad...yeah Terminator was always a bit complicated, but I have always been a fan and gotten it. And NO, it did not minimize the film by NOT having Mr. Schwarzenegger in it, I didn't even think about it, there was too much going on, too many things to dazzle and drag you into the Resistance. When this CG Arnold popped up it was just like, Heyyyy look it's Arnie!! Otherwise, pffft, so did not need the original terminator. So I definitely reccomend this movie. And apparently Night at the Museum did even better than T4, so I am even more excited to see that, which I hope to see very soon!!

Went and yup, bought New In Town after the movies. I can't wait for my Mom to see it, she was all ready for my Dad to take her to see it and they stopped playing it in theaters just as she wanted to go see it, poor Mom, LOL! I was not happy to see that it would cost me 20 bucks at Walmart!! What happened to new dvd's being $14.96?!! Did the other walmart shopping too, went to the video store...not much there, if either of the 2 I got are any good I will tell you.

I saw a mostly good one last week, called The Wedding Weekend. It all centers around these guy friends who were an acapella group in college and now they are asked by one of them to sing at his wedding, and you could say, these men are going through some issues right now, and they kind of all spill out while they are together with their spouses/girlfriends, etc. The best part I have to say was the singing, I wanted to download the album but don't see it for sale. Bummer. I also picked up Lost in Austen, I haven't watched it yet, but Sam did, the Austen nut, and LOVED it. Hopefully it is not too much of a "bonnet" movie. Yuck!

P.S. Who else is a Jon and Kate Plus 8 fanatic?? Did you watch last night? You could SEE the tension, and it was so weird them being seperate the whole time during interview time. And when he rolled up at the party LATE, I was like, soooo that's the car you bought behind Kate's back while she was out of town...yeah you could fit one car seat in that back. Not that I am Team Kate on this. We and She don't know if he did anything, sure he acted foolishly, but no one knows if he cheated on her, and now the whole thing is maybe she cheated with her bodyguard...who is telling the truth? I have no idea, but I hope they get past this, I miss Kate hitting him across the chest in the interviews, etc. The whole episode felt so awkward and that part where Alexis, okay she is my fave of the girls, said she didn't want Daddy to go, just broke my heart. And when he was like I have a business trip, I was like...um neither of you work anymore, and only Kate goes on business trips. Poor kids!! Kate seems to think they don't get what is going on but they are 5 and 8 year olds now, they aren't stupid!

I saw Terminator over the weekend, and found it entertaining, but not great. Plus, I didn't really remember any of the other movies, so I had a little bit of a hard time following.

Wendy said...

good to know, I am a Terminator Fan, but wasn't sure about this one!!!

Amander said...

So, I've only seen J&K+8 a few times, but Kate always seemed sort of mean to me!

Sarah said...

I do think that guy is very handsome :) Also, I posted about Jon and Kate back in February (under potpourri label) if you want to read it. I have been watching for years and have ALWAYS noticed tension even when they interviewed together. What surprises me most is that People and US are portraying her as a monster really, and I consider those two magazines the most "fair" (I don't buy the other trash like Star or In Touch). I was on the fence as far as an opinion about the two but after reading I have to choose Team Jon. It's just sad to have that many kids involved. I hope they can remain friends.
PS. Saw Changeling...I liked it alot even though I am not a Jolie fan.

A hottie and an accent?? Woot woot!

Didn't watch that episode yet, but I figure it'll be on again, and again, and again.

Jillene said...

I am sure that I will see Terminator but I just don't know when. There are too many movies that I want to see ahead (we don't get to the movies that often because it ends up costing me $50.00 or more to go to one).

I watched part of J&K+8 and it was awkward. And him showing up to the party and then her completely ignoring him--it was weird to say the least.
