Arnold Back for Terminator 5 (Article) - 6/14/2013 9:19:06 PM

I would much rather see him as a flashback or something or as the creator of the T-800.  My concern with placing him back in the actual terminator role is that it just becomes a joke and they turn him into a caricature of the original, which is pretty much what I felt like happened in T3.  Again, I'm the biggest Arnold fan there is, but at some point we have to come to grips with the fact that he's just old.  I mean, he's almost as old as my dad.

zillaman, I hear what you're saying.  It could work if they explain it that way.  But I always understood it as their flesh wouldn't really age since they come out right away looking like a full-grown man. And I think in either T2 or T3 he explains that his fuel cell lasts for something like 120 years.  I don't know how to put it all together, but I just always got the impression that the organic part never really aged.  What you say does kinda make sense though.  I guess we'll see...

I heard this today on the local evening news/talk radio show.  It's cool, I guess?  What's he gonna do though?  Is he really gonna be the terminator again?  I'm the biggest Arnold fan there is.  Grew up watching all of his movies.  But how will they pull it off with his age?  Will they really put him back in his original role?  They were pushing it with T3

Don't think I can wait longer than I have to, so I'll try and catch a late showing Monday night after my bowling league.

After reading all the spoilers (again, I personally love spoilers) I can't wait to go see it.  Being a bartender though I'll probably have to wait til Monday or Tuesday.

Exactly.  And I understand some people being a LITTLE upset, but seriously.  Some of these guys...  And for them to say that Superman would never do that and he's never done it before?  I don't even read comic books and even I know that's not true.

Actually, I'd stand up and clap and cheer if he punted Zod's head into space.  I'd probably laugh my own damn head off!

SPOILER?

 

 

For those who say Superman would never kill and has never killed are completely wrong.  For one thing it's happened in the comic books.  More than once, from what I understand.  And he (arguably I suppose) killed Zod at the end of Superman II when he threw him down into the canyon.  Some people like to debate that, but even as a  kid I kind of accepted the fact that Superman just whacked Zod.  Zod had his powers taken away, so at that point he was basically a normal person.  A fall like that would probably kill a normal person.  That's why I don't get the anger from people saying that it was "sacrilege" and that Snyder took "indecent liberties with the character."  Come on.  Superman has killed before!  I even read a snippet of a review from some fanboy film critic (can't remember his name) who said he actually stood up to walk out of the theater when it happened in MoS and his girlfriend had to restrain him.  I just don't get that.  And Snyder/Goyer probably did it in order to set up a part of the storyline for the next movie where he adopts his famous "no killing" rule.  I mean, if he twisted dude's head clean off and then proceeded to punt it into space like the late great Reggie Roby then I could understand a little outrage.  But that's not how it goes down.

Yeah, when I talked about the "end" I wasn't referring to the Clark Kent reveal.  I was referring to the final confrontation with Zod and how it ended.

POSSIBLE SPOILER...MAYBE!

 

 

I haven't seen the movie yet, but I've heard about the "controversial" ending (I personally like spoilers, though personally I don't see it as much of a spoiler).  I don't see what the big deal is, but then again I'm not a big comics guy.  However, I can understand the point that people make when they object to it, so please don't waste your time trying to explain it to me.  I get it.  I really do.  Promise.  My point is that there have been many different incarnations of Superman over the decades and it wouldn't be the first time that Supes did what he did in Man of Steel.  Just sayin'.  It's been done before, so to say "Superman would never do that!" is inaccurate.  It has happened before in the comics and possibly in one of the original movies, though people like to debate that as some see it as being rather ambiguous and kinda left to the viewer to decide.  Again, I won't spoil it for those who don't like spoilers and haven't seen the movie yet, but I felt the need to weigh in.  I just don't see it as a big deal.  In fact, I'm kinda happy they did it.
