Arnold blockbuster movie terminator [b][]Watch Django Unchained Online[/url][/b]. James Cameron films, unlike most other action films, do not have superhuman protagonists like Arnold Schwarzenegger or Sylvester Stallone (excepting True Lies (1994) – but that was meant to be a parody) but ordinary people. They are such exhilarating films because Cameron arrays truly titanic (okay, bad pun) struggles against his protagonists. The focus is not the sheer spectacle and the dealing with it through the use of cool, firepower and muscular brawn but rather through the very real sweat and the emotional strengths that Cameron manages to draw out in the process. [b][]Watch The Hobbit Online[/url][/b]. The film that launched the career of acclaimed director James Cameron as well as making Arnold Schwarzenegger a household name, The Terminator was one of the most influential science-fiction films ever made. The late 70s and early 80s represented a period of fertility for Hollywood filmmakers who chose to explore the sci-fi genre. The results were genre-defining gems that include George Lucas’ Star Wars (1977), Ridley Scott’s Alien (1979), and Blade Runner (1982), Steven Spielberg’s Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977) and this. James Cameron would later go on to make extraordinary sequels such as Aliens (1986), Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991), and the box-office success Titanic (1997), establishing his status as one of modern cinema’s most spectacular filmmakers.

In a role that forever immortalizes Arnold Schwarzenegger, the Terminator is a simple character that requires almost negligible facial expressions and few lines of dialogue. Yet the role demands one to exude a fearsome and remorseless presence that not only presents a significant threat to the survival of the film’s protagonists, but also leaves viewers cowering in terror. Schwarzenegger fits the bill perfectly in a role that probably wouldn’t have gone to anyone else. Kyle Reese (Michael Biehn) plays protector to Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton), with the latter being targeted for termination. The reason? Her unborn son, John Connor represents a genuine resistance to the survival of Skynet, a machine superpower that rules a post-apocalyptic Earth decades later.

I will not explore the merits of its plot because it is difficult to discuss it in brevity except to say that the story has a strong emotional core that lends The Terminator a unique advantage over other chase movies. The action sequences are well-crafted though compared to its sequel they are less fluid. However, they give the film a grittier and rawer feel. The visual effects created by Stan Winston were ahead of its time. The most memorable of scenes include the one when Schwarzenegger removes his damaged eyeball to reveal a mechanical lens that illuminates with a red spot.

And the last quarter of the film is still one of the most suspenseful climaxes ever done in the genre. James Cameron, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton combined again for the impressively large-scaled Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991). The awful Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003) was a further sequel, produced by Gale Ann Hurd, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger but made without James Cameron’s involvement, and this was followed by Terminator Salvation (2009) with Christian Bale as the adult John Connor. Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (2008-9), starring Lena Headey as Sarah Connor and Thomas Dekker as the teenage John Connor, was a tv series spinoff that followed on from Terminator 2 in continuity, ignoring the other two sequels. James Cameron subsequently went onto the enormous success of Aliens (1986), followed by the problem-ridden underwater alien contact film The Abyss (1989), Terminator 2, the spy comedy True Lies (1994), the runaway success of Titanic (1997) and the long-planned Avatar (2009). Cameron has also written the millennial virtual reality film Strange Days (1995), which was directed by his wife Kathryn Bigelow, as well as produced the near future tv series Dark Angel (2000-2), the remake of Solaris (2002), the rock diving survival film Sanctum (2011) and produced Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away (2012). The film's other two leads, Michael Biehn and Linda Hamilton, share some acting characteristics - neither has tremendous range but both are charismatic, physically adept, and provide the requisite intensity. Biehn was a Cameron "regular" early in his career, then moved fully into B movies, an arena where he continues to thrive. Genre fans remember him best as Hicks, Sigourney Weaver's semi-love interest from Aliens. Linda Hamilton was virtually unknown at the time of her casting. In years to come, she would reprise this role (in a considerably buffed up form), marry and divorce James Cameron (she was his fourth wife), and become a beloved cult figure for her part in the TV series Beauty and the Beast. The potential evidenced by Cameron in The Terminator - the ability to sustain suspense, meld action with story, and provide compelling characters despite the limitations of the actors portraying them - would be fully realized in two future features, Aliens and Terminator 2. This movie, however, is in some ways more impressive than either of those because of what the filmmaker was capable of achieving with a limited budget and without significant studio backing. The themes and ideas presented in The Terminator hold up well today, even though we have moved into the post-Cold War era and only the most nihilistic individuals could see 2029 in such bleak terms. It's a rousing science fiction story that proves an on-screen adrenaline rush need not short-circuit the brain.
