Expecting to come away from Terminator 3 disappointed, it was a little strange finding myself getting into it. Yeah, it should’ve been longer, it could’ve gone a little further with the plot, and it definitely could’ve been more emotionally jarring… but I get the feeling that complaints like that are no longer warranted in this day and age. Hollywood feeds us crap every fucking day and calls it candy; it’s our own fault for eating it up.
As long as it keeps the pre–teens happy with it’s special effects and sexy broads, it’s done it’s job. If it keeps the rest of us from overturning cars in the parking lot by giving us a credible plot that’s true to the franchise… even better. Given the current state of the entertainment industry, I should be ecstatic.
I guess, to a degree, I am. Wooooooo.
