So, I finally saw Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines on Tuesday. They should have called it Rise of the Cliches! Sheesh. A review is to follow, when I can be bothered.

On a more positive note, X2: X-Men United is on FX tonight.

Which one, the remote-control chase scene?
My problem with most of the action scenes is that they were directed in a somewhat confusing way. If you look at the way Peter Jackson framed the action shots in The Return of the King, most of them made good, logical sense in terms of direction and cinematography. T3 was just a jumble. I couldn't even tell you when the TX lost each of her 3 RC vehicles.

The chase scenes were generally all right, but they were very cliche, hackneyed, and generally as unoriginal as could be. I had a bigger laugh watching Knowle Rohrer (Adam Baldwin aka Jayne from Firefly, who played the supersoldier on The X-Files) chase Mulder and Doggett Robert Patrick through the basement of that building, in what was clearly a spoof of the T-1000 chase from T2. Constantly repeating "She'll be back", "I'm back" and imitating every "T-101 view", clothes-acquisition scene, etc. from the first two films got a little old.

My main qualm, though, was with the gaping plot holes, which I'll write about later. :-)

I was very disappointed with T3. The other two T movies had set the bar high (especially T2). I thought the movie was awful.

When I saw it again, I didn't hate it as much. I had gotten over the initial disappointment and didn't expect anything from it.

Arnold still looks good for a man his age!
