With Terminator Salvation already hitting silver screens in america, it's pretty antagonizing that asia has to wait for it to reach us one week later. Not to mention, most would have already reviewed the film, which is an additional excruciating factor to resist reading.
though i peeked at a few reviews online doing my best to force and peel my eyes away from potentially plot spoilers and just reading the comments only.
to my disappointment, the reviews going about online have been rather poor, and mostly stating that terminator salvation has fallen below the expectations set and being unable to substantiate the substance for it's over the top effects.
i was hoping that it'd get some huge critically acclaimed mention so it'd hype me up further. though it wont' dampen my spirit to watch this film i've waited *god knows how many years* long. T3 was a huge joke of a movie by the way. Hopefully T:S does better. I wont' judge it till i've watched it that's as far as i'd say. but i do hope this film lives up to my expectations! god....its THE movie event of the year for me and i'd hate for it to sink...
in the meantime i'm pretty preoccupied with things i'm doing though i still do my best to check out forums for updates on when Hot Toy's terminator figs will hit us. Heard it's out in HK already.
and as a spoiler: t-800 is featured in the film (above) and hot toys did display a t-800 figure as part of the T:S figure releases line up at a shopping mall in Hong Kong, perhaps that'd be our 5th figure. Marcus wright and helena bonaham carter's character are terminators...and they used to be human...Arnie is back (digitally)...and bale's performance was said to be somewhat dry and one dimensional? (hopefully not when i watch it)
