    Also, what is more entertaining is to hear/see all the religious people outraged over both. Especially Angels and Demons, at least the movie, which other than the violence I don't really see the problem with.

    Yeah, Dan Brown can write interesting stories but the endings always suck and are predictable. He's like a baseball team with solid starting pitching and a lousy bullpen. Dan Brown is the Cleveland Indians.

      Either way, I love Night of the Living Dead. I could watch it a million times.
      Remake or original?

            I was just too lazy to type Salvation. Was not talking about that movie, which is deeply flawed and third best of the franchise. It's a great idea and premise, but I would rather see it remade. It could be much better since the 80s just didn't have the kind of equipment to achieve it's desires.

            T2 is really good and I love parts of it, but some of the acting is just so unbearable that I can't get over it. Great B-movie, but nothing more. If I want to watch a near perfect B-movie action flick, I'll take Predator over anything else.

            T2 8/10

            All the reviews and comments I've heard and read as to why the movie supposedly sucks are all ******** to me. No, it doesn't have the best plot of the franchise or the greatest story line I've ever heard. The ending is a little too perfect. Yeah, Christian Bale was in it. It was directed by McG. Most people dislike it for the dumbest reasons. McG sounded like a ********, but he made a really good action movie that had some really good action scenes and some great special effects. It seems like most people who disliked it went in knowing they were going to hate it no matter how good or bad it was because of the people who were involved. Sam Worthington was so good, that alone was worth the price of admission. He pretty much stole every scene. Christian Bale was good as always.

            Terminator Salvation 9/10

            Anyways, just finished watching Nothing But The Truth, and I was just incredibly impressed. If you're into political films it really doesn't get much better than this. If you like that along with some incredible writing (as good as it gets) and some really great acting from about five different leads, then you're going to love this movie. I was extremely impressed and the movie slowly just keeps pulling you in. The characters are all developed extremely well and you have all these people against each other and at each others throats with their lives falling apart because of this one newspaper story, and your torn between which people you're rooting for and which people you're not. By the end of the movie you find yourself with the same thought process as the main character and her conflictions (Beckinsale) are somehow realized by the view. The last minute of the film are not how I would have ended it and its kind of shocking who the source was, but not really in a good way. Other than the last minute its almost a perfect film. Matt Dillion, Alan Alda, David Schwimmer, and Vera Farmiga are all terrific. In the end it's Kate Beckinsale's movie and she's incredible in it. Easily her best performance.

            9/10

              • Terminator Salvation (T4) was full of win. Just what I expected, which is good.

                • The split viewed of the new Terminator movie are REALLY weird and it's not only on this board.

                  People either say it's terrible or great, very little gray area.

                  • T2 a great B MOVIE? There is so much wrong there that I don't want to start.

                    And I'm part of the gray area because I think T4 was pretty mediocre.

                      Yeah, I had to take my insults regarding that comment to IRC, seeing as they would get me banned from here. T2 is much more then a "great B-movie" its a ******* classic. And how is the first Terminator flawed? Its 100% on Rotten Tomatoes, its a staple of the sci fi genre, loved around the world, and it turned Arnold into the star he would become and guess what? Hes the governor of a state now. How much do you wanna bet thats because he was the Terminator. Remake it? You do realize that CGI doesnt make everything better and you can have too much of it right?

                      • I guess I'm part of the gray area as well because I enjoyed it and had fun, but I didn't think it was great.

                          Yeah, it isn't going into my favorites and I won't go out and rent it to see it again (I'm not really a big Terminator fan), but I thought it was good. I don't think that it is 30% bad like rotten tomatoes said it would be.

                          I didn't come out of the movie feeling like I wasted my time, and I didn't look at my phone to check the time at all.

                            100% on rotten tomatoes? Oh, I didn't know that. I can just see the headlines:

                            "Daring and inventive filmmaking."

                            "A Sci-Fi classic."

                            "A landmark and monumental achievement that will influence everything that comes after, which in turn lessens the quality of the influenced movie since it wasn't the first to do this stuff even if it out-does the original, it still wont be as good because it wasn't the first, which means it copied."

                            CGI machines are better than the crap they used in 1984. The CGI in T2 during the opening war scene is really bad. The only thing I liked about it was how dark and bleak it looked. But the Stars Wars influenced laser guns they were using? WTF. They also had fire works exploding off people when they got shot. It was really weird looking. It looked like an 80s video game. Some Atari ****.

                            But watching that machine try to walk fast down the hall? Chasing two people while they limp two feet, then look back (get a close up on their petrified eyes as this machine slowly inches closer), then go back to the bad looking terminator try to walk, then the two people limp a couple more feet, look back again (another close up on even more petrified eyes since he's getting a lot closer), then look at the terminator walking again... it's just ridiculous since you get the feeling this thing can't catch them, but for the sake of the movie, he does.

                            It's only a B movie because its directed like one. The corny dialgoue. The corny close-ups and sound editing (How many cocks of unloaded gun being loaded are used in the first two? It has to be record setting). It's unnecessarily cheesy.


                            T2 is leaps and bounds better than the first, but T4 is the best. Not by much.

                            • Are there any sequels that you think are better than the orignal?

                              The only two I could come up with were Empire Strikes Back and Dark Knight. Godfather 2 over Godfather 1 is too close to call and too close to call #2 decisively better.
