    Terminator 2 is like last word in action. It is one of those movies you never get tired of. Terminator 3 had some gimmicks, like that quite nice helicopter crash scene. But it didn't have anything new to offer.

    Saw Knight and Day. I thought it was a good summer popcorn flick. The biggest negative being that it relies too much on the over-the-top action (and special effects filed)action scenes. I think the chemistry between Cruise and Diaz is the biggest positive of the movie. They really play off each other well. Incidentally, I never got the backlash against Cruise. Is he a fake? Sure, but who in Hollywood isn't? His problem was that his carefully maintained public persona exploded on him the moment he jumped on Oprah's couch and sat down for a chat with Matt Lauer. Meh. There are worse things that Hollywood stars do. Anyway, 7 out of 10 from me for Knight and Day.

    Worst post. T2 defined sci-fi action for me. T3 was just a horrible gimmicky movie that didn't interest me nearly as much, though the ending was clever. Really, 3.5 for T3 and 8 for T2 makes much more sense.
    RIP Craigos

    Pratters, I think you need to do a bit more research.

    According to imdb, T2=8.5/10 and T3=6.6/10
    Please change your ratings as the evidence is beyond a doubt.

    Thanks.

    And with that post you lost your right to ever have your opinion on movies taken seriously. And I'm not even including the fact that T2 has You Could Be Mine in my anger FFS.

    Haha, T2 is so so much better it is untrue. Pretty timeless, the special effects still looked great well after the turn of the century, which is pretty damn impressive considering when it was made. Pretty much the best pure action movie I've ever seen I'd say. T3 is plain awful.

    Better than the new on though, that was just an embarrassment for all concerned especially Mr Bale.

    Yeah, T2 was THE action movie of the 90s for me. So many memorable moments, pretty much every scene is firmly embedded into pop culture these days and so many films borrow from it in one way or another. T3 was an abomination.

    Pretty lame. Sledger has often tried to misinterpret and misrepresent me. I often choose films which are highly rated by critics, viewers, based on recommendations by people, because of the director or the actor, or a random film I just want to watch. I don't judge a film based on the ratings. A film may be the lowest rated scum in the world according to most people but I may like it like Sweet November or the opposite might be true as well as in the case of T2.

    And I agree with Liam when he said one should never write off a film before watching it. I just can't choose all the films to watch as there are so many films, so I choose like I have explained before. But I would never say 'this movie has a bad rating, so it must be bad'.

    Regarding rating things out of ten, many movie fans do it, some movie fans like to rate films while others would rather not. The ratings may be stars, alphabetical or numberical or just about any thing. I am not the only one in the world who rates movies out of ten. It is one of the more popular methods of rating movies.

    Sledger's takes on my movie watching are vastly boring and without any logic.

    If it's anything like your football watching, I'd say that was spot on.
