I have a confession to make.
When it comes to movie reviews, I’m the Captain Ultra (for the non-nerds among you: the captain is a washout of a Marvel Comics superhero), of the internet. And so when I decided to write my first movie review of Terminator Genisys for Pulp Nation, I knew my approach was going to have to original, brief and above all, effective.
I’ll leave it up to you – and history – to decide how I fared. On a side note, Terminator Genisys was my sixteen-year-old’s daughter initiation to the Terminator franchise. And…
She loved it! She really loved it! As anyone with a teen can attest, this was the best possible outcome; I would have been lambasted if she had hated the film or worse, found it sexist. Fortunately, she was already familiar with Arnold Schwarzenegger due to his recent off-the-beaten-track zombie film, Maggie. This film was a return-to-form for Arnold after years of civilian life and less-than-stellar small-scale films like the aforementioned Maggie.
Hopefully, this film will perform well enough to justify the two planned sequels. I rather enjoy watching nerdy fare with my daughter; she hasn’t grown bored with her old man yet.
