169 – The Terminator (1984)

The Terminator,polite as fuck.

The Terminator,polite as fuck.

The Terminator is an eighties movie that seems like it was filmed at the tail end of the 70’s.The plot of a time travelling machine sent back to kill the mother of a future Resistance leader is pretty original.But there’s some shots that look pretty good then there’s the special effects that let it down majorly. In scenes where arnie is poking around his eye of looking at something up and down we clearly see he’s made of play-doh or something.I find it hard to believe that in the future the dogs are the only things that can spot them.Anyone who can see 6 inches in front of their face would pick a terminator out of a line up.Another thing i noticed near the end was all the stop motion bits of the terminator model,why the hell was that in the film?Did they just build the head and shoulders terminator prop ?
