Film Flash: Terminator Genisys

15 words or less film review (full review to follow soon)

A mediocre movie made much, much worse by terrible casting.  Terminate this franchise now.

1 and 1/2 out of 5 stars.


  1. My friend David waved me off this one; he knows I hate crowds.

    Great CGI, not so great anything else.

    Bad news, Genisys is the first of a planned reboot trilogy.

    "Terminate this franchise now"

    That's what I said after T2. The recursive timeline was going to come back around and bite them in the behind.

    If TPTB wanted to make more movies it should have been an anthology, Tales from the Terminator-verse.

    1. The story can be done well. You can see that in the first season of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. It is clear that Genisys is a set up for a trilogy. And that would be okay except that the used the wrong cast.

  2. Instead of fifteen words, have you thought about a review haiku?

    "Haiku" is a traditional form of Japanese poetry. Haiku poems consist of 3 lines. The first and last lines of a Haiku have 5 syllables and the middle line has 7 syllables. The lines rarely rhyme.

    Here's a Haiku to help you remember:

    I am first with five
    Then seven in the middle --
    Five again to end.

  3. Pretty Effects Grace The Screen

    Cast An Abomination

    Nuke This Franchise Now.
