Also, I've said that -- as a franchise -- it's one of the only SciFi properties that I've found something worth celebrating. Each installment has offered something fresh and different (and, yes, that even involves the gloriously under-performing Terminator: Genisys, a feature that couldn't quite match its own ambitions); and this has given the mythos something to build upon for the next chapter. Granted, bringing aboard storytellers with different visions for the greater Terminator universe hasn't exactly served the films well (I have to wonder if this is a franchise that might be better served by committee management, like the Marvel Films and the Pixar flicks); but -- at this point -- it is what it is as the franchise once again appears to be in limbo.
This morning, I saw over at ComicBook.com a featured article promoting (ahem) "a bold new (potential) chapter" in the Terminator story, so I thought I'd give the online pitch a brief shout-out on these pages in the event that anyone is interested.
However, I for one would love to see the franchise grow as I think it's definitely one of the tentpoles of cinematic SciFi.
As always, thanks for reading ... and live long and prosper!
