Has anyone noticed these major differences between T3 and the originals?
I just recently saw the first two yet again, and it occurred to me just how different they are to T3. The first two seem to follow a parallel structure, basically a similar sequence of events. The other differences im thinking of are the cinematic ones, T1 and 2 had big flash credit intro's with the terminator theme music in the background, whereas T3 was silent. Furthermore, T3's first car chase was silent also, whats up with that!
The dialogues were crap, but that barely needs re-stating.
Subtle differences, but the lack of James Cameron influence does show.
T4 is bound to follow a similar fate..
What do ya think?
T3's first car chase? do you mean when the TX gets pulled over by a cop car thats not a car chase my friend....
if you are referring to the chase with the bloody crane truck thing then THAT was a excellent and most awesome chase for the record books and it certainly WAS NOT silent.
now then, the first terminator opening credits was very cheap and wasnt loud (I think), T2 was nice and loud and, as standard, great! T3 credits was just......well just explaining what John Connor had done with himself to stay "off the grid"
"In the year of our Lord 1314, patriots of Scotland, starving and outnumbered, charged the fields at Bannockburn. They fought like warrior poets. They fought like Scotsmen. And won their freedom."
t2 and t1 were developed to have a great plot and mix good action scenes into them. t3 had a good plot, but there wasnt much thought put into it. it lacked the qualities that made the first 2 so great. the biggest mistake was that the majority of the movie happened during the day not at night( like in the first 2) also it was way too short. there was no time for real character/ story development. and most of the story was beeing told in the middle of an action sequence. the film took place in less then 24 hrs. and mostow tried to do too much at once. thats the differance between t3 and the first 2
When I first seen it, I thought it was great...the excitement of seeing a new Terminator flick clouded my thoughts. However, after seeing it for the third time, I realized how shoddy it actually was. I honestly think I could've done a better job with T3's creative processes.
When i watched it the first time diden't even like it, you can see why James Cameron diden't make it for its rubbish they should have left with the just the two movies and John Connor was a whining idiot who's girlfriend has more balls that he has, and the idea that Sarah Connor died of leukemia that was stupid.
that was the only thing they cud do.. ii mean linda hamilton saw the script and was like WTF... and it was funny she was saying( wow right now i was just scrolling and just saw the intro of t2... AHHH THE MEMORIES....) its on USA network right now
the time sphere thingy that the terminators arrive in was not as elaborate as in T1 and T2.
In T3, the electrical displays are not as spider-webby as in T1. And there's not so much drama in the terminators' arrival.
Erm, you should know that some of us actually did find the humour in T3 quite amusing vvvrulz! Not all of us thought that it was unnecessary; quite the opposite, in fact - I thought that the humour merely served to enrich the film ...
But then again, that's just me !
