Plot: A machine sent from 2029 to 1984 to prevent humanity to raise up in the future so it can win the war of Humanity vs Machines. His main target? Sarah Connor, the mother of the Resistance leader. Humanity sent a lone hero, Kyle Reese to protect Sarah, can they defeat… The Terminator?
Review: A classic, a cult film that started a franchise that expanded along the years with a masterfully crafted lore and a stable development. The movie’s pace is quite enjoyable the characters are well-built. The best part is how it’s clear it’s an old-school style of film, more specifically for using the method of stop motion & animatronics, today mostly it’s just CGI. Personally, I think this is one of the films that you must have in your films-to-see list, it’s epic and shows us old school ain’t bad always. A must-see for any sci-fi fan, it has a sequel, Terminator 2 which is also highly recommendable. -Sophia Cynthia Cabral
