The cynic in me can’t help but to think the direction this film is taking is a bid to make it “SJW – proof”. That is, the last thing those despicable slugs would complain about are minorities. Especially if there is a possibility they might be undocumented. Natalia Reyes, Diego Boneta and now Gabriel Luna are all set to star in the latest entry in The Terminator series.
I don’t know. I think Cameron and the gang read the temperature and decided that this film wasn’t going to get a fighting chance from the regressive left if it wasn’t caked with a thick layer of “inclusively” and “representation” buzzwords which basically just mean less or no whites. We really are in that time and the Culture War…now globally being fought all over the planet is far from over. Winning this war will not entail appeasing these scumbags. It will take spitting right in their face and telling them to go back to the hell they came from. Two things you should never do with an SJW. Apologize or appease.
If this were all there is I would probably still be hopeful for the film but with David fricken Goyer writing the script I’m sorry, but I just can’t get behind this. I’ve always been a huge fan of James Cameron’s work (obviously) but this is a bridge too far. How does anyone in their right mind bring Goyer onto their project?? I’m completely gobsmacked. At the very least, I might listen to see what ideas he has but I would never go beyond that with the guy.
And it doesn’t get any better. I knew that Arnorld was not looking very good in his old age but I recently saw Linda Hamilton in the movie Curvature (2017) and man oh man has time not been kind on the old gal. I used to drop my trousers for this woman but those days are quiet, quiet finished. All these factors are simply not painting a good picture for me regarding this film. I…just don’t see it. If Cameron and director Tim Miller somehow manage to knock this out of the park it will truly be nothing short of a modern day miracle.
