    And she loved it. When I married here 7 years ago perhaps I should have asked 1st. LOL I wonder what other movies that I take for granted she has not seen.

    Was she surprised that Arnold's character was the protagonist this time? I always wished that T2's pre-release advertising campaign hadn't revealed the fact that Arnold's mission is to protect John Conner this time. I would envy someone who saw the film for the first time without knowing that--it would almost be like watching The Empire Strikes Back for the first time without knowing that Darth Vader is Luke's father.

    She liked everything about the movie and we spent another hour looking at the extras. She can't wait for T3 now.

    I think she was more impressed with Linda Hamilton (or is that the ice skater).

    Very true, Ben. The movie was obviously designed with the idea of concealing Arnie's intentions right up to the point where he says, "Get down."

    Along those lines, I managed to see Eraser without having seen a single trailer, so the part where the main villain was revealed was mildly surprising.

    Well, you are luckier than I am. My wife doesn't like T2. I did, however, dragged her to the 70mm screening of 2001: A Space Odyssey at the Egyptian Theatre even though she begged me not to take her. I haven't heard a complaint from her since then whenever the film is mentioned [​IMG] No more "It's the Moon, the moon, the moon, the moon" remark from her.

    I'm also very lucky in that matter... My girlfriend also didn't know anything about the storyline of T2 (which baffled me, EVERYONE knew that Arnie was the good guy this time around [​IMG] and when I finally showed it to her (in dts [​IMG]) she absolutely loved it! And boy did I envy her for the experience... Not knowing that Arnie is the good guy - she might be one of the 5 people that experienced the confrontation scene at the mall the way it was intended.

    I watched Terminator 2 first, The Terminator later. And I knew nothing about Terminator movies before watching Terminator 2. Strange experience. But it actually helps me appreciate the first movie better.

    I saw that screening of the 70mm print of 2001 at the Egyptian. It was breathtaking. Too bad their other showings tend to be whatever crappy print they can get their hands on, like the horrendous print they showed for hte 40th ann of Dr. No.

    I made both my sister and my mom watch this at separate times. They were expecting a stupid, violent, testosterone-filled action flick, and both ended up crying at the end![​IMG]
