Terminator Genisys

The film is a bit of a mess in terms of plot and with the added time travel twists and set up for further sequels. All that could be forgiven if it could have been an entertaining mess. Unfortunately it … Continue reading

Terminator Franchise

The Terminator The 80s were awesome and 80s movies were awesome too. Born from the nightmares of James Cameron Terminator not only gave us a hellish robot controlled vision of the future to be milked and parodied forever more but … Continue reading
