Terminator 2, a review by DJ Doena


March, 18th


Arnold Schwarzenegger    ...    The Terminator
Linda Hamilton   ...    Sarah Connor
Edward Furlong   ...    John Connor
Robert Patrick   ...    T-1000
Earl Boen   ...    Dr. Silberman
Joe Morton   ...    Miles Dyson
Leslie Hamilton Gearren    ...    Twin Sarah

Synopsis: A decade has passed since Kyle Reese was killed and the Terminator was destroyed. But now he's back. Another T-800 was sent back through time. But he's not here to terminate. He's here to protect John from the more advanced Terminator model T-1000 - a shapeshifter. Sarah, John and the T-800 have their hands full with staying alive and preventing the apocalypse. They have to destroy Skynet before it's even made.

My Opinion: I had totally forgotten how young John was. I remembered him at least four years older - maybe due to new series. But I still like the movie very much. Robert Patrick is a great adversary with cool morphing effects. And while some of the jokes that John made the T-800 do were a bit childish I liked their interaction. I also liked how the T-800 killed nobody and still had an amazing rounds per minute ratio.
For me, it's the best part of the trilogy - let's see how the fourth part will be.

Tom's Random Star Trek Reviews, a review by Tom


VOY 3.04 The Swarm
Writer: Mike Sussman (Writer)
Director: Alexander Singer
Cast: Kate Mulgrew (Captain Kathryn Janeway), Robert Beltran (Commander Chakotay), Roxann Dawson (Lieutenant B'Elanna Torres), Jennifer Lien (Kes), Robert Duncan McNeill (Lieutenant Tom Paris), Ethan Phillips (Neelix), Robert Picardo (The Doctor), Tim Russ (Lieutenant Tuvok), Garrett Wang (Ensign Harry Kim), Carol Davis (Giuseppina Pentangeli), Steven Houska (Chardis), Majel Barrett (Computer Voice (voice))

My next theme: The pairing of Tom Paris and B'Elanna Torres (known in the fandom as "P/T"). This is my favorite canon Star Trek couple. I like how they slowly build it up in season 3 with few scenes thrown in in a couple of episodes. Sadly they neglected this pairing during season 5 and 6 but luckily made again some nice episodes in season 7. I will not watch every episode where those two share on-screen time, but will make a selection of episodes of which I remember they had some nice scenes between them.

One story in this episode is about the consequence of the Emergency Medical Hologram running longer than it is supposed to. The doctor's matrix is degrading. We get the chance to see the guy who has programmed him (Dr. Zimmerman) who looks exactly like the doctor. It's the good part about this episode. Robert Picardo is great playing the doctor having dementia. And he is also fun as Dr. Zimmerman.
With the other part, although nicely executed, I have a problem with: Who does Janeway think she is? The alien they encounter make it obvious, that they do no tolerate trespassers. But because it would take Voyager 15 months to go around they space (I assume they did consider 3D space ;) ), she decides to risk the ship and go through their space. Also it seems a little strange, that going around that space would take 15 months, but going through it would only take 3 days.

P/T moment: In the beginning of the episode, Paris asks B'Elanna about her love life. And it also marks the first time (as far as I remember), that he hits on her.
