Terminator [I’ll Be Back]

For anyone who knows me, even slightly, understand I have a huge passion for the Terminator series. The Terminator is a move, created in 1984 by James Cameron. It focuses on machines that have self-aware AI and see the human race as a threat. Therefore they [Skynet and the self-aware machines] try to eliminate that threat of the humans. The movie is fast-paced and was a huge success, even though no one thought it would be. It launched a huge series about “The Terminator” – 4 movies and a TV-series.

The interesting part of the whole concept, is that Humans are basically wiped out by their own creation. The humans created Skynet as a military defense computer, the computer becomes self-aware and tries to “get rid of” the human race. This concept is the embodiment of the entire English course. It has all the elements that a good apocalyptic story should have, even the tiny seed of hope at the end of every movie. There is a threat to human existence, there is resistance to that threat, it creates and builds upon a fear that is already present within modern society. [Also it has terrifying robots that give me nightmares, but that is besides the point.]

Honestly, the first thing that comes to mind when someone says apocalyptic is Terminator. If you haven’t watched it, or have not watched it in years, plus take an hour or two and allow yourself to relive the excitement and terror. This would be and is my most recommended apocalyptic story concept of all time.

“The Terminator is a blazing, cinematic comic book, full of virtuoso moviemaking, terrific momentum, solid performances and a compelling story.

The clever script, cowritten by director James Cameron and producer Gale Anne Hurd, opens in a post-holocaust nightmare, A.D.2029, where brainy machines have crushed most of the human populace. From that point, Arnold Schwarzenegger as the cyborg Terminator is sent back to the present to assassinate a young woman named Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) who is, in the context of a soon-to-be-born son and the nuclear war to come, the mother of mankind’s salvation. ” – http://www.variety.com/review/VE1117795542?refcatid=31
