I'll be back! Or will I?


Arnold Schwarzenegger will always be considered the consummate Terminator, much the same as Sean Connery is regarded by many (myself included) as the quintessential James Bond.
[I found that last URL edifying, yet amusing]

However, the "Halcyon Company has announced plans to revive the cyborg-battling movie series with at least three more films, after the production company purchased all rights to the dormant franchise for an undisclosed, though likely eight-figure, sum."

Arnold is more interested in being Governor of California nowadays, although that wouldn't prevent him from making at least an appearance in any future Terminator films.

At present there are three planned, starting with the next one to be tentatively released in 2009.

I've always enjoyed the Terminator series, and what with the state-of-the-art in CGI FX, they should still be worth the price of admission.

I know that I'll be back, to see them...

The Terminator series was quite entertaining but, much of that was surely Ahnalds magnetism.
Will have to reserve judgment until the "new improved" version comes out because you never know, might still work!

You are *such* a tease.

I was afraid you were quitting or something.

Phew! I may not comment much but I would have missed you terribly.

Possumtrot is the one who quites a few times a month. Thankfully he never really means it either!

I thought you were goin' on vacation again or sumptin'...

Some of my fondest memories are of "quality time" with my daughter. "Terminator" days were always fun. We would watch Terminator 1 & 2 back-to-back. Did that a few times.

Then there was "Die Hard" days, and "007" days, and... well, you get the picture. My daughter and I both enjoy a great action flick!

(:D) Best regards...

While Ahnold was an important part of the phenomenon that was "Terminator" (BTW, did you know that traditional German bock beers end with the suffix "ator"?), they were well-written and inventive SF classics. I would really like to see more of them...

boberin:
Reserving judgment is best; most sequels tend to suck, basically, but I've enjoyed the Terminator series so far. I am somewhat biased towards the Sci Fi genre, though.

Cassandra:
You say the nicest things.

Maggie:
Actually, what with comments diminishing, I had considered pulling the plug...but it's kind of likely to be my own fault to a degree, since I went 2½ months without posting anything new. Of course part of that time I was on vacation, and the rest of it was due to not liking the "new" blogspot.

That, and I've been working a LOT of OT.

abettermap:
I probably will talk about Trail Daze, before next weekend.

Hawkeye®:
Goin' on vacation? Never often enough, but I will write about the next one coming up.

Speaking of Die Hard, there's going to be another one of those, coming soon to a theatre near you.

Beerme:
"Ahnold" was an important part of the Terminator series, but it could still conceivably be OK without him.
(FYI, I've had a number of those German bock beers)

Won't be the same without Ahhhnold. Perhaps Dolf Lundgren?

Hopefully they'll manage to put Ah-nold in there somewhere, but you're right, it just won't be the same without him.

Mr. Lundgren would fit the part, too; good thinkin'!
