Has anybody noticed that this movie seems to be on everywhere tonight? Not tomorrow, but tonight? I thought it started July 2nd (tomorrow), but all the theaters here in Phoenix have showtimes in the papers and on the internet for tonight starting at 8:00 pm. What gives? Guess I'll go tonight as maybe not everyone will realize its on.

They are having advanced showings everywhere, apparently. The Harkins North Valley 16 here in Phoenix has eight showings scheduled tonight; three at 8:00pm, two at 9:20pm and three at 10:40pm. Actually, it seems like every Harkins and AMC theater in town is showing it tonight. Doesn't seem so "Special" if every theater in town is showing it.

Then again, Brian, you guys did make the last Terminator game.

The theater I work at is showing it at 8, 9, and 10:30 tonight. I can't go for free since it's opening day, but I'm off work tomorrow and thursday, so I might be able to see it before the weekend.

I just saw Terminator 3 at 445pm. (I am a projectionist at and amc and they needed me to screen a print - nothing like getting paid to watch a movie). I thought it was excellent and stayed true to the series. The action scenes are extremely entertaining. Also the sound on this movie is incredible. (Saw it in Dolby Digital). Highly Recommended.

I know how you feel gary I to am a projectionist for regal cinema group I do have to say screening movies is one of the benifits to working at a movie theater.

I have to say I had no desire to see this movie when they announced they were doing it without Cameron but the previews do look good.
I am curious to see how they get rid of Sarah.

Anybody know what FX house is doing the special effects for this? ILM?

Yea, I just got from watching it tnite. Great effects, especially the chase scene, which I think was better than the one in the Matrix Reloaded movie. The actress who play the part of the new Terminator did an excellent job. IMHO, I didn't really miss JC not directing this movie. I especially like the surprise ending. Overall great movie.

Meh. Color me a bit disappointed.

Sure there are a handful of extended action scenes that are really dazzling, but the "in-between stuff" is fairly rote and overloaded with bouts of lengthy and unengaging catchup/exposition.

Stahl, solid; Danes, not.

Arnie's in fine form despite some of the sillier one-liners he's given. Ms. Loken is easy enough on the eyes but I find it troublesome that she's not half the villain that Robert Patrick's T-1000 was.

Certainly it's a worthwhile flick for action fans and those who dug part 1 and 2, but overall I'd say it's fairly mediocre across the board.

Though I too did like the ending. It was the only time the movie actually felt like science fiction.

Full review on the way. Curious to see if I'm alone in my relative disappointment.

2.5 out of 5 stars

I really liked it. Great action, FX, and I thought the acting was above average. Some of the one-liners were silly but this movie is a worthy sequel. Better than Matrix and Hulk imo.

I had a blast watching this film and I was surprised how good the film turned out without Cameron.

Well, I'm definitely going to see it tomorrow (hopefully for free, if not then I can probably see it thursday for free).

I just have one question: seeing as how the armaggeddon thing was supposed to take place in 1999, how do they deal with that in the movie? I don't want a spoiler about the ending, but does the movie take place in 1999?

Just got home from the local cineplex. One of the better movies I have seen this summer. I have been explaining time travel and the paradox's to my 13 year old. The story line stays true.
Such a long long time to be gone, such a short time to be there.

I thought this movie was GREAT. After the HULK, this movie really gave me new hope for the summer lol. I LOVE AWNULD, and I seriously think this was one of his better movies. I too didnt miss Cameron that much in this one. What I really liked about it is that the effects and CGI were kept to a minimum. Unlike other movies I've seen recently.
