Again, Skynet said Marcus was the only one of his kind. Simply because they made Marcus does not mean that Skynet made others similar to him in the next 11 years. Marcus ripped his chip out and at no point did Skynet ever control him. He synced up the first time with Skynet after he'd given Reese's location to Connor. He was an unwilling pawn. Do you think a self-aware supercomputer is going to make something like that over and over again and just hope that fortuitously it can lead Connor somewhere to kill him?

I wasn't saying they would make a ton of them, but that the main drawback to the terminators that exist later, between 2018 and 2029, are that they are easy to differentiate from humans. If they are able to make a machine that looks exactly like a human in 2018, it makes little sense for them to go backwards to rubber skin. The T800 has real flesh too, why would they go to rubber skin after that?

I saw it last night and I am not sure what all the criticism is about.
I enjoyed the movie and thought it was pretty good.

I prolly wont buy it, but I would say it is worth seeing.

I'd take that bet in a heartbeat. T3 grossed $418 mil, and that was 6 years ago, with significantly lower ticket prices. All three Matrix movies grossed that as well.

Lot's of average at best movies have made that much in the past year or two. There's no reason this one can't, especially given the lack of direct competition until Transformers 2 comes out in a month.

Possibly. At this point it's slightly behind T3's pace, and factoring the terrible reviews and dropping theater attendance who knows.

Memorial day weekend. Probably not a good release date.

Most of target demographic out partying, while douches like me with a kid that stayed home had Night at the Museum 2... granted, I stuck her with her mom and saw Terminator one night, but you get the point.

here's a pretty good explanation for why the plot of Terminator: Salvation was so screwed up and muddled... turns out the original working script was going to be much more innovative and it explains why some of the things you see in Terminator: Salvation are there (e.g. why was Skynet collecting humans anyway?).
