Default terminator is a flop

http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/terminator_salvation/

it will make tons of money but trek is the best critic movie

it doesnt come as a surprise to me ,T3 was rubbish,the only salvation for T4 are the good sfx,(trek had better story than sfx)

so..t4,wolverine,and illuminati when they re out on dvd for me,i ll not waist my money on these,heck i suppose my life in ruins will be more watchable movie

I still plan on going to see T4, probably tonight, since I am a fan of the francise (and yes, I even enjoyed T3.....<ducks>.....). I'm not holding out a lot of hope for this movie, since it seems to be getting bad reviews, but then, I've never been one to adhere to reviewers if it meant seeing a movie I've been waiting on for at least a year.

All said and done though, me thinks Star Trek will be the reigning champ...at least until Harry Potter hits the big screen for his sixth outing. Even if Harry Potter does come out on top in the summer movies, I will still be happy for Star Trek..... it kicked much astrums in its time out, and has guaranteed the paving for a new sequel.

I won't even see it. The first three films were more than enough for me.

I'll end up catching it regardless. Seen the others so, may as well give it a go as well.

I didn't have high expectations for T4.

Funny how the expectations plummeted when Cameron left after T2. Makes you wonder what that subtle difference was he brought to the first two films.

Well it is because Cameron brought the story to a close in T2.

Or because his scripts had more intelligence underneath the explosions? And T3 didn't?
