Terminator: Dark Fate wants to pretend like the last 4 or 5 sequels to T2, I’ve lost count, didn’t happen. It brings back the greatness that is Linda Hamilton, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and uber god amongst men James Cameron and bring Tim Miller one of the brains behind the hugely popular Deadpool films on board to direct. On paper this movie should be a grand slam, how did it go so wrong? Headline is, despite how awful the marketing has been, it actually isn’t bad, but it’s not as great as it needs to be to revive this dead franchise and drag it into a new direction that will make audiences care again. At least it didn’t make me care, I don’t pretend to know what audiences want or like.
Terminator: Dark Fate easily surpasses the low bar set by the third, fourth and fifth movies in the series – and not least because it completely ignores them and has a few different and entertaining tweaks.

I feel like I need to say this before any Marvel review this year, I’m a long time Marvel comic book fangirl, but I’ve never been a MCU can do no wrong fan girl. In my eyes, they’ve done plenty of wrong. I absolutely detested Spider-Man: Homecoming. Ok, that’s a bit harsh, I loved Michael Keaton as the Vulture but didn’t like much else about it. To this very day, I haven’t bothered to watch it 2nd time. With that said, a lot of my issues from the Homecoming remain in Far From Home but there is so much greatness here that after End Game and Captain Marvel, it’s time I come out of the closet and join the Marvel can do no wrong club – except for a few minor quibbles this is an almost perfect summer film with a post credit sequence that blew my mind.
