Why “The Terminator” Can’t Be Stopped

April 6, 2009


The Terminator just keeps on comin’ back isn’t it? But why it just can’t go away no?

Answer to those may lie upon the cyborg honcho itself. Yeah, The Terminator is smart enough to hide some secrets. Wanna know em’?

See, when you take em’ down, they’ll just reboot and continue with the objective. As Wired explains, even if you shoot em’ Terminators with a truckload of bullets and explosives, it’ll just keep on getting up and come hunt you back. I agree, really. And to make matters worse, those time-travelling robots do receive cool enhancements from time to time.  Have a look on the shape-shifting liquid metal T-1000 on Terminator 2 and the hot blonde can-do-it-all Terminatrix  in Terminator 3. They’re major upgrades both in terms of hardware and software. It made  that red-eyed T-800 (from the first film) look like a wuss.

Now here comes the aftermath of Christian Bale’s mouthful. Terminator: Salvation. Its the start of a new trilogy. A whole new dimension to the Terminator franchise per se. Wonder what kind of cyborg arrives on the 21st of May…and the successive Terminator films after that. I guess them Terminators won’t be going away from Hollywood anytime soon.

Its just appropriate to take a look and ponder upon The Terminator’s timeline. The Terminator series make a big contribution to the Sci-Fi movie industry. From 1984 to 2009, you’ll witness here how it just started as James Cameron’s biggest gamble which then evolved to the killer franchise that we know of today.

I admit, there’s really no secret to The Terminator’s muscle. It comes back naturally effortless. Especially after that “I’ll Be Back” scene.

Oh before anything else, here’s a trailer of the upcoming Salvation:

Hasta La Vista!
