For those who do not like the terminator movies and would like to bash them: Welcome! If you like terminator, but happen to fall in line with those of us disapointed with T3 don't bother. Let's focus on those who don't like Terminators at all. Let loose your hate, and we will set you straight.
Before anyone begins verbally and/or physically abusing me or cutting my hands off and making me eat them, i would like to say that i LOVE t1 and t2, they are THE BEST movies made.....EVER! Both movies puke all over t3

i just wish t3 wasnt filled with plotholes. i must say the basic storyline wasnt bad at all, the execution lacked. mostow was just a fan, he made terrible blunders, plotholes. and made terminator a mess. kate brewster was a weak addition, john connor should have been more powerfull because he has experienced it all before. but i guess it can be looked at a different way. the tx was a nice idea, but like i said, it wasn't perfect. and towards the end(just before the last scene), t3 didnt seem like a terminator movie. rather like a random action movie. e.g: kate brewster says: THATS MY DAD'S CHOPPER I LEARNT HOW TO FLY IT... uh ok... the tx should have been terminated in a more convincing manner. and so on. but i didnt mind the ending though. its not so bad, infact it sets up pefectly for a good movie, but unfortunately the blunders leading up to the ending cant be ignored.
T1 and T2 have their fair share of plotholes and blunders but you just choose to ignore them. There is a reason that T3 doesn't measure up, I agree, but every movie has mistakes and plotholes, so I don't think that's it.
I think what really let T3 down was a bad cast, and bad dialogue. The ultra-cool image of the Terminators, Reese, the T-1000, Sarah, almost everyone in fact had disappeared in T3. We instead saw a bunch of spineless jellyfish. Arnie's one-liners were just horrible and had no place in movies like these. When you look closely, just about everyone in the movie had bad lines, and that along with poor acting really cannot be ignored at all. That would be my theory to why most hate T3.
