I still don't understand the hate on Terminator 3. I loved it.

 "Also, Jennifer Love Hewitt's breasts are bouncy."

Anyone wondering how Jennifer Love Hewitt has had a fairly successful career as an actress, there is your answer.

Also, what does it say about Michael Bay that "one of his better films" is a remake of an MST3K-able film called "Parts:  The Clonus Horror"?

 Trust me.  The visual effects on Primeval:  Lost World are leaps and bounds better than the ones from the first season of its parent show.  Some of those were completely dreadful.  But I guess they would be considered worse than a CGI movie.

The FX from Primeval: Lost World may be better than the original (It's been 10 years, they'd better be) but the scripts and characters are not.  I'm somewhat disappointed, but I'm hanging in there.  The new show is not BAD, but it's a show about people chasing monsters around, not about the scifi concepts behind time travel like the first one was.  Still, the characters are likeable and the action is interesting so I'll continue to watch.

lridan,

I absolutely hated T3.  I thought it was a complete rehash of the first Terminator movie, with none of the interesting character development or plot that T2 had (e.g. Sarah going after Miles Dyson, and the group blowing Cyberdyne the hell up).  The only good thing about T3 was its ending.  That was an ending with balls.  But a good final 10 minutes does not make up for a crappy 110 minutes leading up to it.

JW, while I liked T2, the kid almost ruined it for me. A better actor and better writing could have made that movie a classic for me. I loved the ending of T3, and I didn't mind what came before it. Oh well, differences of opinion.

I still think we got shafted by The Sarah Connor Chronicles getting canceled. After the lull in season 2, it really picked up, and I would have loved to see a conclusion.

Iridan, good points, but in my opinion Terminator 2: Judgment Day WAS and always will be a CLASSIC.  :)  I can't wait for James Cameron to get his hands back on the franchise.

Notice several new commenters (or is it commentators) on Mania recently...which is a good thing...I wish my eyes were better or I could click on the avatars and they would appear larger...so I could see what the heck they are.  For instance, I'm having a hard time making out Jackwagon's and Iridan's avatars.
