That was the problem with those WHSmiths bargain bucket videos/dvds… you could never really trust the back cover. I think I bought Hardware expecting it to be a Terminator style action movie.
Yep. It’s a shame it probably won’t get a sequel, as it was the first Terminator movie since T2 where I actually wanted to find out what happened next with those characters.
I think Cameron was originally meant to direct it, which is how they got Linda Hamilton back. It had a few dumb bits (mainly around the Arnie character) but it was a good ride.
Side note: Linda Hamilton just showed up in Resident Alien, but she’s seriously overacting.
That’s an interesting though.
My thorough research in the field can be summarized as ‘watching Lego Batman’ and the big bads it brings in are:
(not really a spolier, but just in case you don’t want to spoil the fun
Sauron from The Lord of the Rings (deceased)
Medusa and the Kraken from Clash of the Titans
Lord Voldemort from Harry Potter
Agent Smith from The Matrix
Swamp Creature, Lord Vampyre and The Mummy from LEGO Monster Fighters
The Gremlins from Gremlins
The Great White Shark from Jaws
King Kong from King Kong
The Daleks from Doctor Who
The Wicked Witch of the West and her Flying Monkeys from The Wizard of Oz
T-Rex and Velociraptors from Jurassic Park
Skeleton Warriors from Jason and the Argonauts
I thought there were Aliens too… but maybe I imagined that. Almost everything is from the 50s-80s.
So it’s basically Jurassic Park, Voldemort / Dementors, Agent Smith and Sauron (who is a building)
I guess the last 10 years has been dominated by Marvel Superhero movies, which have had a huge number of bad guys and monsters, but they tend to have different ones each time and be mainly focused on an individual villain character, so nothing can really stick.
