I think I might be the first person to remember that the Razzies happened earlier this month.

Five. It's just one big bank heist, whereas in the other films any heists are decidedly secondary.

Ah, that makes more sense (though I'd still argue that the villains from the first two Terminator movies are more menacing than her).

I still have to give The Sarah Connor Chronicles a proper go - I watched maybe an episode and a half before getting sidetracked and never got back into it, but I've heard good enough things and there is a certain novelty to seeing the franchise actually take on a serialised narrative (even though it's arguably compromised by mid-2000s network TV standards).

A curious comparison considering how Terminator is so wrapped in post-apocalyptic wars that there's no futuristic-looking human society for the robots to disrupt via rebellion. The better point of reference is arguably something like Blade Runner.
At this point, I kind of admire that the first Westworld S3 trailer used an unadulterated version of Pink Floyd's "Brain Damage".

You must be playing the Westworld s3 trailer on a constant loop.
?
As long as we're talking sad piano covers, this has to be the most audacious of them all...

i never said the original wasnt banging. But its safe to say its a lot more upbeat.
Never said you said that, just a general comment on which version of the song seems to be more popular.

I like the analysis I heard once where the upbeat '80s poppiness of the original syncs up much better with the manic-depressive lyrics that are at once bouncy yet miserable ("the dreams in which I'm dying are the best I've ever had") that gets lost when you do a much more simplistic "sad" version.
