Nolte: James Cameron blames original ‘Terminator’ stars for ‘Dark Fate’ flop.

For those wondering how Hollywood and James are out of ideas – “Five Avatars Film ”- Cameron are, Cameron is thinking of doing another one Terminator movie.

“If I had to do another Terminator movie and maybe try to launch that franchise again, which is up for discussion, but nothing has been decided, I would do it a lot more on the AI ​​side than bad robots gone berserk,” Cameron said the Smartless podcase this week.

Cameron also blamed the failure of the most recent Terminator reboot, 2019 dark fate, up – get this – not the ridiculous sight of a female dwarf presented to us as a mighty warrior and savior of the world … According to the King of the World, Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger were the problem.

“I think the movie could have survived with Linda in it,” the 38-year-old Avatars said the director. “I think she could have survived with Arnold inside. But when you throw Linda and Arnold into it and then, you know, she’s 60 and he’s something 70, suddenly it wasn’t your Terminator movie, it wasn’t even your father’s Terminator movie, it was your grandfather’s Terminator movie. And we have not seen it.

Oh please…

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton were the only reasons to see the film. It was woketardery, social justice box checking, and the ridiculous idea of ​​a little sketch with a pigtail saving the world that made Dark fate ridiculous.

Equally ludicrous is the idea that there is franchise or world-building potential in the fairly simple concept he created Terminator (1984) and Terminator 2 (1991) work. You can only make an unstoppable cyborg killer go back in time to alter the future so often before it goes stale. And this is all Terminator concept, no matter how much you build the universe. It doesn’t matter where or when you set up terminator, is a robot that chases people.

ghost Buster has the same problem. Ghostbusters catch ghosts before those ghosts can destroy anything. You can’t build a universe around that. You can’t franchise it. That’s the concept no matter where you set it.

I know this is an unpopular opinion, but I like it Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2001). Everything works except Lady Terminator. With a more iconic villain, like Arnold or Robert Patrick, Terminator 3 would be better remembered. It had a solid story, thrilling action sequences, and a great ending. It did well at the box office, but the concept – unstoppable cyborg killer – is still the concept. People knew they’d seen that concept executed perfectly in the first two before Terminator movie. What could a third party help offer?

Then it came Terminator: Salvation (2009), which I remember as the one where Young Arnold’s CGI face grabs Bruce Wayne and throws him across the room instead of killing him.

Then it came Terminator: Genisys (2015), the first with a tough little girl (Emilia Clarke), a little girl so small that a Terminator could crush her to death with two fingers like a pimple.

Then it came Terminator: Dark Fate (2019), the woketard one.

Oh and there wasn’t a Terminator TV show that lasted a season and a half or something?


Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb…

But that’s how everyone is out of ideas. Five bombs in a row? No, let’s try again rather than think of something new.

Perhaps Cameron could take a short break, wasting the third act of his life bypassing the past to deliver the Blu-ray and 4K releases of Outright lies and The abysswhich are surprising and deserve attention and rediscovery.

Climate change Smurfs 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5?

Terminator 7?

From the boy who gave us aliens and Titanic?

It’s just sad.

I am sad now.
