Yes, it is overrated. That doesn't mean I'm saying it's bad! It's very good. Its just: The Terminator was a better movie. Fight me.

For the 80s this movie was groundbreaking in both story and cgi. If you hold old films to current standards you are going to be dissapointed.

I do agree to an extent. Personally I like the first movie more than the second movie but the second movie was a vast improvement on the original.

Can't we just merge these all into one thread? Sprayin thinks _____ is over rated. Everyday can be a different topic.

We could definitely have a whole thread devoted to how Top Gun sucks, that's for sure.

That is actually my argument for The Terminator. People like T2 better because it was newer and it aged better in terms of picture quality. And also probably because of the age they were when it came out.

T2 vs T1 is a similar comparison to Aliens vs Alien

T1 is, like Alien, more of a sci fi / horror film than and action film

T2 is far more Action/ Sci fi as is Aliens.

All are excellent movies and arguably the best of their types ever made.

[MENTION=682]Sprayin[/MENTION] is just pissed because T2 won 4 technical achievement Oscars, and counting Oscars is a direct correlation to how "good" a movie is, obviously. Whereas the first Terminator didn't win or get nominated for ANY Oscars, so it can't be overrated.

The first Terminator is overrated if anything.

The cool thing about this movie is that they used CG effects but they were executed in a way that was realistic within the realm of their capabilities. They didn't try to make the blob of metal with all sorts of crazy textures they had no way of rendering, they just made it a blob of metal. Even a lot of modern CGI movies could get a clue from this. The T1000 going through the bars at the asylum was a total "holy shit" moment and is still an awesome tension builder even today as an example.

I wish we could go back to the days of action films where the plot was also good like this or Die Hard vs now where it's a hundred million bucks of CGI and a script that would give me a rash if I wiped my ass with it. The rise of Transformers/Comic Book movies has lead to a lot of generic plots. In this realm I'll plant a flag on the hill that Marvel sucks compared to DC.
