Saturday Double Feature – Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) and…

tdfI really don’t know how much I need to say about this we’d opener. Terminator: Dark Fate is the 437th film in the Terminator franchise, and marks the return of Linda Hamilton and Arnie’s beard to the franchise. If that excites you, then obviously both your friends will know where to look for you this weekend.

I do find it interesting that what started as a truly low budget affair has ballooned into such bloated effects-driven extravaganzas. Of course this really started with T2 and the introduction of the T-1000 and its morphing abilities which put another tool in the toolbox for filmmakers to way over-use for the next few years.

And it’s in that same spirit of movies which moved special effects forward in a truly groundbreaking way that I chose today’s film. As you’ll see in the trailer, 1953’s Robot Monster brought to the screen a creature the likes of which has never been seen before, and which, honestly has never been duplicated since.
