What is up with the endings to “The Terminator” & “T2”?
I’m James Faraci, The Last Of The Americans and the views I’m about to express are that of my own & some of yours. We’ve all seen “The Terminator” & “Terminator 2: Judgment Day” (Show the intros to both “The Terminator” & “Terminator 2: Judgment Day” then cut to clips of both movies with James doing a voice over)
TLOTA (Voice over): Now for the moment push out of your mind Terminator 3 & Terminator Salvation and the supposed “Reboot” that’s coming up out of your mind for a while and remember how innovative the first two were. It had great practical & digital effects, The stories were self contained and told well, the acting was for the most part solid and James Cameron pushed the potential that cinema could have at that point. But let’s look at the endings and what the meaning behind them were. Because this does also mean an analysis of the movies on their own merit and combined. (Cut to James physically.)
TLOTA: I know that everyone knows these movies backwards and forwards but here is where they differ is at the endings and I will be talking about those only, it goes without saying that there will be spoilers & I will be talking about the last moments after the villain have been well lack of a better term. (Cut to T2 Clip where Arnold says “Terminated” then cut back to James physically.) Thanks Arnie
