re: #249 Eclectic Cyborg

Agreed. She was a high point. My main gripe with Dark Fate isn’t the cast, it’s the derivative story. There’s so much great material to mine in the Terminator storyline it’s frustrating the films keep going back to the same basic plotline again and again.

My main gripe with the films following T2 is that it makes little sense.

In T2, Miles Dyson dies after destroying/deleting all his research, Cyberdyne itself is destroyed, the Skynet processor and surviving T800 arm from the first film are destroyed, the T1000 is destroyed and the T800 is also destroyed, taking its Skynet processor with it. With no Skynet processors to reverse-engineer, Skynet would’ve simply ceased to exist in the blink of an eye as it was the paradox of Skynet sending back a T800 in the first film that led to its creation.

It’s been awhile since I’ve seen the other films in the franchise so I might be forgetting some details. But the story should’ve wrapped up with T2 as the paradox was resolved.
