Corrections & Review
A few corrections to the IMDB summaries: Arnold is the T-101 model, not the T-800, and I believe John is supposed to be 25, not 18. (He makes reference in the movie to being 13 during the time of T:2 and then also makes reference to that being more than 10 years ago. Also, it's been 12 years between films, and it would make decently logical sense for John to be 12 years older since both films take place in the current time. And finally, if your local theater has an online summary of the movie, chances are they state John's age as 25 - check AMC Theaters, their summary says he's 25.)
The film itself was excellent. It was a perfect balance between a story driven drama and an action packed sci-fi. Nick Stahl did a wonderful job, fully exceeding my expectations. Schwarzenegger was as terrific as always. He somehow takes an unfeeling cybernetic organism and manages to make him loveable. The TX is dutifully frightening and full of surprises. The effects are stupendous! All in all, a real treat. It was a wonderful movie.
My only disappointment was the absence of the Terminator theme throughout the film (although it did play during the closing credits).
Also, I don't know how reliable this information is, but I've heard that Schwarzenegger has already expressed interest in returning for a third Terminator sequel (which would be excellent because the way this film ends leaves you clamoring for a fourth installment).
Babes in Toyland (1986)
A Magical Adventure
Maybe it's just me, but when I see Keanu Reeves singing about love while locked in a jail cell painted baby blue, something just goes poof in my brain! My family tape recorded this movie when it was first on television when I was six-years-old and my sister and I have adored it ever since. I was appalled when I purchased the factory copy and found several of my favorite songs missing. Shame on them for cutting it. Anyone have any ideas of how to obtain a factory copy of the entire thing?
Anyway, much like Wizard of Oz or Alice in Wonderland, Lisa Piper finds herself dropped into a fairytale town where cookies are the currency and the only requirement for a drivers license is your feet reaching the pedals. She makes some wonderful friends, who happen to look suspiciously like her mother, her sister, her sister's boyfriend, his best friend, and her sister's pediphile boss. It's a wonderful romp through a Mother Goose world surrounded by the Forest of the Night and every evil thing imaginable, with an arch villian who lives in a bowling ball, and old Mother Hubbard who lives in a giant shoe.
The songs are fantastic, memorable, and catchy, and even though you can probably only find the edited version, I strongly recommend it!
Big Trouble (2002)
One of the Funniest Movies I've Seen in a Year
It's nice to see a mature comedy these days. No toilet humor or drug related jokes. Just good old fashion fun and angst. It's based on a novel by Dave Barry, who is absolutely a comic genius, so I'm not surprised I enjoyed it. You will too.
