    Your thoughts and opinions on this, the second film in the franchise?

    Not the best one. But it is the second best.
    I always feel like this is the terminator for kids.

    The second one is just the first one with more money.

    It's a great film but the first one had the originality.

    Terminator 2 is great but the first one was better.

    Certainly the best of the sequels. However, the is something about the original. A relatively small budget, James Cameron and (the late, great) Stan Winston worked miracles here. Much like Rob Bottin on The Thing (1982), which Winston also had a hand in. Despite the premise. it was almost unassuming in its scope. Love the humour in the script, such as the telephone answer service message; you're talking to a machine, but don't be shy, it's Ok, machines need love too.

    In many respects, T2 is the bigger, brasher brother. However, I prefer the original.

    It is being re-released in 3D, and there is a new trailer promoting this fact..............

    I have a real soft spot for this one, as I saw it before the first, which in comparison just isn't as much fun. I mean, Arnie as a big dumb menacing robo-thug is just obvious, whereas good guy Terminator is kind of sweet. And the melty metal upgrade baddie is really sinister.
    But 3D? why do they bother, I mean, why?
