My Thoughts:

I can say with a fair amount of conviction even without having seen the last installment, Terminator Salvation, that Judgment Day is hands down, and always will be, the best movie in the franchise.  :thumbup:

It has all the best lines, the best scenes and the most WOW moments. Be honest... when this first came out and you watched it for the first time you were blown away by the special effects... yes? The T-1000 and it's ability to morph, liquefy, mimic and kick ass was groundbreaking for the time and another pioneering moment of many for James Cameron.

Another thing you have to give Cameron kudos for... his taste of women. We had a recent up close and personal with the gorgeous Katherine Bigelow but my favorite of the ex's is Linda Hamilton. She is a breathtaking vision in this movie. Ripped, toned, athletically graceful and mean! Her facial expressions during her stay in the mental hospital invoke fear... better to take your chances with the Terminator rather than her when she's pissed.

I almost forgot this was Edward Furlong's breakout movie and I find after this viewing that I didn't care too much for him. He didn't quite have the chops yet at that young age to pull off the cockiness of his character. He did go on to have some good roles after that however.

My favorite image from this classic?

My Thoughts:
This is the very first Marilyn Monroe movie I ever seen. This one was recommended to my by a friend. Over-all I found it to be a fun watch. I enjoyed it quite a bit. Marilyn Monroe was definitely a beautiful woman. Though I must admit the way she talked will take a little getting used to. The way she does her voice... like she was trying to make every word of every sentence sound sexy. It just seemed a little strange. But this one is a fun comedy... well worth checking out. Now I am looking forward to watching the other movie I have with her in it... Some Like It Hot.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

I had seen a few of the early episodes of this series when it originally aired. But I never followed it. One episode which still stays in mind is the one with Wil Wheaton, where

This first episode is good but not something which I found overly fresh (even at the time).
