 if the story is right. An old aged out cyborg whos living tissue is decaying away but under all that old senthetic flesh is still a bad ass killer robot with a mission that still needs to see it finish it no matter what!!!!

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

 No.  Just no.

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 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.

For me, T2: Judgement Day was the definitive, awesome ending to this franchise. I was bewildered when T3 came out and while the premise for Terminator Salvation sounded great, I have no plans to see it.  

I'm not hating on Arnold, but how does he make a difference for the franchise now? It looks like an obvious gimmick to get people to see another Terminator movie. Arnold's too cool for that.

If he wants to explore some of his former glories, then let Arnold do a Predator follow-up. EVERYBODY has been waiting for that. That would be exciting!

I could see Predator more than T5 for Arnold.

Salvation was what everyone was waiting for, but it failed.  It could've been and should've been epic.  Perhaps the greatest Terminator of them all.  But alas it became Christian Bale's forgettable "blockbuster" in the middle of the Batman trilogy.

I think it was explained in the novelizations that the flesh covered Terminators can piss, shit, vomit, fart, have BO, bad breath and that to do all that to come off as convincing they will eat just enough to keep the biological parts working. They have a rudimentary digestive to provide organic energies and proteins to the cardio-vascular, dermal, and muscular systems. Think Robo-Cop and the baby food dispenser. It would be fair to say that since the robots were harvesting humans for organic materials, it would make sense that the flesh would age and wear out... As would mechanical parts as well.

Hmmm... It might be an interesting tale to tell. To see an old terminator perhaps trapped somewhere eking out an existence or maybe trying to survive roving bands of humans hell bent on revenge.

Never read the books, but that could be interesting.  Question is...will it work for a movie and will the casual movie-goer accept it?

VTGamehendge 6/14/2013 10:11:42 PM

In the first three movies though it was explained as just a robot covered with living tissue.  So they would have to make some changes to the story if they have them shitting, pissing, and vomitting.  Lol!
