Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991)

Fast forward eleven years after the events of the first film, a young juvenile John Connor is out to hit the arcades when he discovers that a cop is looking for him. What he also finds out is that the copper after his tail isn't any ordinary authority figure, but a cyborg, better known as T-1000, sent from the future to terminate John to prevent him from forming and leading a resistance army against the machines.

T-1000, the last person you'd want to meet in a dark alley.


So how does a ten year old defend himself from a machine that's able to manifest its arms into knives and heal itself from any assaults taken upon itself? Enter Arnold Schwarzenegger, the T-800, a less advanced cyborg of the T-1000, initially sent out in the first film to destroy his mother, Sarah Connor. It has been reprogrammed this time around to protect the life of John. Together with his mother and Arnie, they set out on a mission to prevent the occurrence of 'Judgment Day', a future event in which humans are exterminated by the onslaught of the machines.

John Connor mirin' his aesthetics.


No other action movie comes close to hitting the nail on the head than this sci-fi classic. It's an action movie with a storyline and excellent concept. The special effects aren't grossly outdated and the performances are top notch. It's a bit of a shame that the third installment of the film did not meet expectations, however we can only hope that James Cameron one day returns to reboot the franchise that we all grew up to love and watch.

  2. Man, this is seriously one of the best movies of all time! I don't know if its just because I loved it as a kid or what, but seriously, I have seen this movie probably 25 times and I will always love it.

    John: "I told you not to kill anyone!"
    Terminator: "He'll live."

  3. Sometimes, I wish they would just stop trying to remake or profit from new version's of great movies like this. Why can't they just let great movies be great? Granted, there are some pretty good remakes of older movies, but those remakes tend to be old enough that I never saw the original anyway.

  9. Arnie did a really good job. That's why he's my number one choice for hypothetical bromance.

  15. Hah, wish Arnie had spun his head round and snapped at John's finger when he was poking his face, that would have been rather funny! Amazing film, 90's all time classic.
