It is an unusual thing for me to watch a film, as so many films today are just propaganda pieces for the liberals and their prejudices. There is nothing worse, nothing more unbearable then to have to be preached at and lectured in an obvious but devious way!
I rarely watch television for the same reason, it is a raft of blasphemy, pornography, bad taste, ignorance and crude propaganda that seems designed to undermine morality and common sense. I get too angry while watching television to bear it. Even in programmes that are supposedly about something that has nothing to do with the liberal axe grinding issues, such as nature programmes or documentaries about ancient Egypt, there is always some liberal grinding his axe, about ‘sexism’, ‘racism’, ‘homophobia'(thats not even a word! homo = the same, phobia = irrational fear, so homophobia = irrational fear of the same! what?? surely it should be homosexualphobia?) or about the ‘irrational and barbarous superstition’ of Christianity!
Now this brings me to the film Terminator Salvation.
I have always liked the Terminator series, excepting the last one which was a blasphemy against the franchise, and fully expecting this film to be some grand axe grinding exercise by some hysterical lefty, the reviews were not terribly favourable and so it was not a film I was eager to see.
Well, a friend of mine wished to see a film and as I’ve not seem him in a few months I decided to go and endure a film, Terminator Salvation was the only film I had any interest in, as the rest seemed to be ‘American Pie’ genre filth that I can’t find any humour in, only revulsion.
I’m glad I did see it, Terminator Salvation is possibly the best film in the series, Christian Bale is as usual excellent as John Connor, Sam Worthington plays his character very well, and the whole Kyle Reece twist is clever, makes one think about which came first, or if it is possible for any to come first, John Connor or Kyle Reece?
I liked the film because it had a story, something others seem to resent, they wanted more explosions and termo-fights, but it set the stage for another film and one that wont seem tired as the whole time travel, being chased by a terminator is gone, it is now about a war against the machines.
The story was good, it seemed familiar but new, the film felt plausible, it did not seem absurd, in the way the new Star Wars series seemed, it looked good, was not cheap or tacky and did not seem all blue screen like Star Wars.
What I liked most about the film was that is was actually not some axe grinding session by some lefty, or some propaganda piece by some anti-racist/sexist/homophobe/Christian…it was actually just a good story and a well made film, something I very rarely find these days.
So, if you have not seen it, go see Terminator Salvation, or if you object to paying the whores of Hollywood, go download it.
