Movie Review: Terminator – Dark Fate (2019)

Terminator: Dark Fate (dir. Tim Miller, 2019) – A newly modified Terminator hunts down Dani Ramos, whose survival may just depend on a cyborg from the future and a familiar saviour.

2/5

Warning: Spoilers.

Should Genisys have been the final nail in the coffin, fans would have revelled. But that would only be gravely underestimating the resilience of the T-800, who has over and again promised us otherwise. And so The Terminator is back once more in Dark Fate, which wisely ignores the subpar Rise of the Machines, mildly entertaining Salvation, and the unwatchable Genisys.

For a while, the supposed threequel looks promising. James Cameron’s best works will finally get their due proper end… Or so we were led to believe.

Movie Review: Deadpool (2016)

Deadpool (dir. Tim Miller, 2016) – Left scarred by a rogue experiment, former Special Forces operative Wade Wilson sets out on the hunt after the man who destroyed his life.

Verdict

The merc is back, thankfully with a mouth that spills gallons of fun and twisted wit.

4/5

Review

Remember X-Men Origins: Wolverine? Me neither. But it happened, as much as we like to collectively pretend otherwise. And that was when we first met the notorious Merc with a Mouth… right before the film murdered his very essence to the horror of comic fans.

Cue painful memories of Wade Wilson losing his voice, then head, and us losing any chance to witness his return to the silver screen. Until the “accidental” footage leak, that is. Previously dead in the water, the former corpse gets a new lease of life seven years later and mostly intact.

Don’t stop believing, guys; Deadpool is back.
