Decades of Horror 1990s Episode 22 â€“ Terminator 2: Judgement Day (1991)Terminator 2Â is inarguably the peak of writer/director James Cameron. It’s an actioner full of set pieces most action films could only dream to have as their climactic finales. A sequel that ups the ante of the originalÂ Terminator‘s scrappy efficient thrills. We get full role reversals as the T-800 saves the day. Having to contend with Sarah Connor’s doubt and John’s affection while trying to defeat the sleek new model of the T-1000. And boy is he sleek. Winner of four Academy Awards,Â Terminator 2Â revolutionized computer generated effects. Yet, much of what made such effects work is helped by the presence of practical effects alongside them. Afterall, would the T-1000’s helicopter crash be nearly as good without an actual helicopter being crushed on the road? Probably not. To help cover all the time paradoxes and high pitched noises from Edward Furlong, Thomas sends two perfect robot co-hosts back in time to coverÂ Terminator 2; Christopher G. Moore and Shakyl Lambert. Together, these three ask the important questions. What is more terrifying: Robert Patrick’s run or Danny Cooksey’s mullet? Would Denzel Washington have been a better Miles Dyson? Will we see a nuclear holocaust as terrifying as the opening scene in our lifetime? All these and more are answered as Decades of Horror the 1990s finds out exactly why you cry.
