    Terminator: Dark Fate

    No spoilers I promise.

    I just watched it. No idea why so many hate for it. I read all those negative reviews on IMDB. Most of them center on the fact that it's about feminism. I failed to see how that is so. Is it because the main characters are three women? Or because one of those characters is a strong androgynous woman?

    I am just not seeing it. I liked the movie. Of course none of them are as good as T2. I think the IMDB rating is pretty accurate.

    As a side note, I thought a terminator separating himself into two was cool.

    It was better than Genesis at least.
    Why do they run?
    Because they have no choice son, such is the way of cowards.
    But even a cornered rat, with no choice, will fight.
    Yes my son, and that should tell you more than you need to know about the coward.

    Agreed. Just why are they complaining about it being a feminist movie?

    I think it's just spill over from Captain Marvel. Brie Larson made such a stink about her movie during filming and much more came out over twitter about this one as well. It's just the bad taste that everyone had gotten for the movie, before it was even in theaters.

    It was the same for the Ghostbusters reboot as well, though I did like it to a point. It was hard for me to sit through the type casting, corny acting and the hand waved jokes.

    Dark Fate at least tied everything back into place and worked with a cast that had character. Though I did find Davis's acting to be rather wooden, it was at least better than what we got from actors like Brie Larson and Emilia Clarke.

    I'll give it a chance when I can stream it, I've liked casually following the franchise.
