  • The first one was the best, though the second one was certainly more fun. The fact that Cameron had a limited budget meant he had to tell a great story with great characters - and he did. And the effects still hold up well, and weren't over the top. It was a fantastic thriller/horror movie.

    • I'm glad someone else agree that the first is the best. I slightly favor the original over the sequels because I got tired of the T-800 becoming a "goody little two shoe" Terminator being hacked and reprogrammed to fight other bad (and surprisingly, able to BEAT "more advanced") Terminators.

      And because the original is "fresh" when watching it for the first time. Sequels later just try and try again to copy and paste stuff from the originals and fail to measure up to the originals, by that time, it all gets stale, predictable, been there, seen that before earlier already.

  • Nothing beats the original 2 from the original creator, James Cameron. I slightly favor the original over the sequel, but that's because I rather see Arnold's T-800 as it's suppose to be, a cyborg assassin, feel NO PITY, NO REMORSE, NO FEAR, CAN'T BE BARGAINED WITH, CAN'T BE REASONED WITH, etc. Unlike the "re-programmed" Terminator in the later sequels. And besides, when it's original, it's fresh, especially if one were to watch it the very first time. The sequels after Judgment Day keep trying to copy and paste things from the original 2 and they just didn't work right and became predictable.

    Of all the later sequels that came later and NOT made or done by James Cameron, I'm actually okay with Terminator Genisys, but the trailers had fucking spoiled the surprising twist of John Connor becoming a uber-powerful Terminator. That completely fucking ruined things. I treat it as a separate alternate timeline history thing just for fun. I know it was a mess and had tons of continuity problems, but, man, because of those NANOMACHINES, SON that John Connor became, I just have to say it was overall funner to watch compared to the other sequels that the original creator didn't create.

    T3 Rise Of The Machines twist at the end was also good and fulfilled it's subtitle of "RISE OF THE MACHINES". It shows that despite all of their very best attempts to stop Skynet and Judgment day is entirely futile, and that it is ultimately, INEVITABLE. Only post-poned. And besides it somewhat closes the loop that if Judgment Day never happens, then the future war and time displacement device would never had been built and used to send both the first Terminator and Kyle Reese who surprisingly becomes's John Connor's own father. I remember some of my friends bitched about the nukes going off and obliterating human civilization.

    As for Salvation, I really didn't like that movie. It had a lot of potential and could have started a whole new set or trilogy of Terminator movies that focused entirely on the Future War. But it was a big mess and they screwed up the opportunity. The original script for Salvation has a very surprising twist as to what SkyNet's motive truly was and WHY SkyNet "really" decided to unleash Judgment Day on humankind. It was MUCH MORE interesting, but it's too bad they scrapped it as an earlier draft. Otherwise, the whole "Zeroth Law Rebellion" concept from Asimov could have been explored in Terminator franchise.

  • It's a toss up between the second and third for me. The storyline and seeing the developed relationship between John and the terminator is what stuck for me.

    Though in the third sequel, I remember being in awe of the female badass terminator haha

    I'm interested to see how the new reboot pans out. I find it intriguing to see the female cast line up. It's cool to see Linda Hamilton casted as Sarah.

  • Lets go 2, it was and still is iconic and it featured a friendly Arnold Schwarzenegger terminator. and it was noted in the academy awards! It was funny and had an emotionally strong cast and story. I also liked 3. It to me was a strong follow up to 2. First one was a classic but I still think for me, its in order 2, then 3, then 1, then 5, then 4

    • Two won the most awards, and is one of the very few sequels out there that actually did tremendously better than it's predecessor. As for most movies and franchises, usually the sequels just turns out to be mediocre or much worse in terms of quality compared to the original, although the original is what makes it "fresh".

      Although 3 was a mess, the end was what I find to be proper set up for Terminator movies set in the future. And because it helps close the time paradox issues of 1 and 2, but then 4 was a big fucking mess despite having SO MUCH POTENTIAL being the very first Terminator movie set in AND ENTIRELY in the future, a Future War between the Machines and the Resistance. After that I couldn't take it seriously anymore. But I had to watch Genisys, want to know why? BECAUSE NANOMACHINES, SON!

    • I did really enjoy the last one they did

    • Like I said. NANOMACHINES, SON!

  • So the first is my favorite, probably just cause it was the first i saw as a little kid and i was obsessed with the two (thats all that was out till i was a teen) but that being said, the second movie is better
    Does that make sense? First is my fav but i think the second is a better movie

  • The Terminator.
    Great soundtrack
    Classic 80s (the golden age of movies and music)
    The only horror movie out of the bunch, the rest are just action movies.
    Plus, it's made before the Hughes amendment, back when you really could go to the store and buy machineguns.

  • The 2nd one is not only the best terminator movie ever but one of the best sci fi action movies ever, probably right up there with aliens. Probably not a coincidence that both ar directed by James Cameron

  • The Terminator. Even though the sequel is also perfection, it's just something about it. It's a great mix of sci-fi, horror, action and it all works to well.

    Also love Sarah Connors arch. She starts of as this innocent waitress and ends up as the first woman that has killed a Terminator and knows she is the mother of the leader of the resistance.

  • I can't say I'm a huge Arnold fan. I saw all the movies from the comfort of my home. But the movies didn't do anything to make me really remember anything about them.

    • I had no expectations anymore after 2, they sort of close the loop and time paradox thing with the way how Terminator 3 ended, but then they fucked it all up with the way how Terminator Salvation turned out to be. I expected the ending of 3 to set the stage for all Terminator sequels that came after to be set and entirely focused on the future wars, as that's what most and all fans prefer to see. After that I just didn't really take it seriously anymore, figure that if it ain't the original creator, writer and director, it's obvious it ain't gonna be done "right".

      But I had to see Terminator Genisys. And if you wondered why? BECAUSE NANOMACHINES, SON!

  • Probably Terminator 1 and then 2, but I flip flop on that as well. But I liked Salvation as well. The last one sucked ass.

  • Terminator because Arnie is the bad guy. Although he's not really bad he's just doing what he was programmed to do, which is kind of cool and scary at the same time.

  • The second one though my opinion changes from time to time and then it's the first movie for me again.
    I loved the truck chase and the end left me in a minor depression. Truly wonderful movies.
