    I think I would agree with that.
    Spot on. I remember watching Terminator after watching T2, and was completely shocked at how much more tense and even violent it was by comparison. Not that I'm saying it's better than T2, just that I really love how different each film is to one another. Like Alien and Aliens.

    There you go. Perfect comparison. Both films in the same universe but approached much, much differently.

    All things considered, T2 is the superior film though.

    It appears to me that ROBOCOP is washed up.

    He did say he was going to CLEAN up the town.

    I don't know or care which is which genre, but I do know that both Hamilton, Schwartz and the boy are amazing in T2, and that scene with red roses is one of the best ever.

    That is indeed a fantastic scene, Jean. Another of my favorites is Sarah musing on the irony of a cyborg being the best and closest thing to a father John has ever had. I need to post that quote. Loading...

    Watching John with the machine, it was suddenly so clear. The terminator, would never stop. It would never leave him, and it would never hurt him, never shout at him, or get drunk and hit him, or say it was too busy to spend time with him. It would always be there. And it would die, to protect him. Of all the would-be fathers who came and went over the years, this thing, this machine, was the only one who measured up. In an insane world, it was the sanest choice.
    This quote^ is like a poster boy for why I love science fiction. It raises so many interesting questions..

    Comparing human to machine is one of the basic themes in science fiction. In the specific case of course, this passage overlooks the other side of the argument... although this is not the point. It is well put, given its viewpoint.

    What's really impressive about T2 is how perfectly form and function synched up. How many movies of the same genre have since tried to insert a stand in for the core audience as apt as young John only to make a mess of it? So many points fit in this one film, it's hard not to suspect luck played a big part. Credit to the creators anyway.

    Yes. Its just one of those works of art where everything comes together so seamlessly and each aspect seems to boost those around to establish a very high standard of quality.
