STILL Better Than Terminator Salvation

Before the blogosphere explodes in the age-old argument of which movie is worse, Terminator 3 or Terminator Salvation, let me state for the record that I think both movies are bad. However, Terminator 3 is watchable-bad (with some highly destructive stunts using real honest-to-God vehicles and a pretty well done bleak ending) while Terminator Salvation is an unwatchable mess full of nonsense CGI and a script with two A stories fighting each other for the chance to bore you to death.

That being said, I think Mostow made the right call in deleting the above scene from the final cut. It made me laugh while at the same time caused a sharp, stabbing pain in my brain.

And The Rest Of The World Thinks WE’RE Stupid?

The next time the world at large wants to mouth off about how dumb and uncultured Americans are, I suggest they remember this:

Sony’s “Terminator: Salvation” continued to dominate the international box office over the June 12-14 weekend, grossing $43.4 million from 12,959 runs in 63 markets for an international cume of $164.4 million. (Variety)

This is one international tragedy the U.S.A. ain’t responsible for.  It makes me so damn proud to be ‘merican! Now I’m gonna go eat an entire apple pie while drinking a six-pack of Coors and shooting guns off the back of my SUV. YEE-HAW!
