This is topical. T4 is out this weekend. But I'd be watching the T's in rotation these days anyway.
Because the Terminators are the best movies ever, and they are the best movies ever because they depict a world that has more despair than mine.
YES I'm being melodramatic. It's MY BLOG.
I'm not even talking coochie here. I'm talking wow the world is a horribly bleak place and I'm not sure what I'm living for. If you've never been depressed I can't convince you of how real that emotion is, the absolute devastation and futility. So just take my word for it.
Anyway, the Terminators are the translation of that emotion to film. Watching them is exactly like being crushingly depressed with robots around.
Plus, in the Terminators, there's a POINT to all the depression. Skynet is going to BLOW THE WORLD UP. People are going to DIE IN HUGE NUMBERS. If Sarah can't protect her son, THE HUMAN RACE WILL END. The odds against the machines are NOT FAVORABLE.
In my depressions, there's not even a cause, let alone an awesome one. Oh, boo hoo, feeling sobby wobby today...GOOD THING YOU'RE NOT THE MOTHER OF THE FUTURE.
So, to sum up: me = humans, depression = Skynet, and that's why I love the Terminators. Also, I will be buffer than Linda Hamilton.
