Movies - New Moon and Terminator Salvation

Last weekend we went to the video store. I thought that it had been a while since we last borrowed a movie and found out that our last hire was way back in December. Grabbed Twilight - New Moon and Terminator Salvation.

It was my missus that wanted to watch Twilight originally. It was a long movie but kept our attention very well so viewing of the sequel was eagerly awaited by all. I tell you what, they could have cut half an hour out of the first sixty minutes in the sequel and not missed anything. There wasn't much to keep our attention. But after that the action was great and the story came alive. Little bit too much teen angst and slow. and. painful. dialogue. for my liking. Didn't live up to the hype but we'll probably watch the next movie when it comes out on DVD.

I saw Terminator 2 before the original Terminator. The missus and I saw Terminator 3 at the cinema but didn't see much advertising for Terminator Salvation. I wish we had because this would have to be a great movie - absolutely tailor made for the big screen. Brilliant. True to the genre and the Terminator formula. I loved this movie and will be happy to watch this again when it's on TV. The movie studio must be making a bucketload of money as the Terminator movies are on channel 10 nearly every second week. Ok, maybe every third. They're a popular filler though. Almost perfect action movie and definitely a Terminator movie. Watch it. Or Arnie will get you.
