Would have to wait until Expendables 4, and the next Rambo. Arnold is doing more drama roles now and hes good at it. He starred in Maggie and has a new one coming about a plane crash.

I and many grew up with these two, along with Van Damne, Segal, Dudikoff, Chuck and Speakman. As hard as it is to watch them ride off into the sunset as far as action films go it's bound to happen. No one can go on forever. Not even the mighty Chuck Norris, unless he gets a blood transfusion from Keith Richards.

I think the second is the best one, with the original in second place. I also liked the third one. It was not great like the first two, but a good sequel.

However, I don't see how they can do 6. I mean Arnold is so old now, it feels like it's just getting pitiful. I love the actor and he can still do other movies, but I feel the ship may have sank with Terminator now unfortunately.

I am a Terminator superman. Seeing Terminator 2 in theaters with my father is one of the most sacred memories of my childhood. It was magical.

That said, Hollywood continues to destroy the legacy of T1 & T2 with the garbage they keep pushing out. Either let the series die already, or get new people to write new, interesting stories.

Before you know it, we'll have Terminator vs Alien.

Dont forget Commando. A true gem, heavy action and cheesy one liners galore. The shopping mall madness scene alone is worth it.

Agreed, Hollywood should have left it alone after the third film. After T3, the next two films were bad and there was an unsuccessful TV series. I have no hopes T6 would be successful.

The problem is that studios are not run by filmmakers. They are run by accountants, and the one thing accountants do not like is risk. They only want to finance films that look like they are going to make money. Something new? They have nothing to base it on. That's a risk.

A widespread saying in Hollywood: No one ever got fired for saying no.

But the reason Cameron is doing this is because the studio has fouled up the Terminator storyline so badly. He wants to go in and finish it off properly. Can he? I don't know. Based on his last few movies, I'm a little skeptical.

I'm still waiting for my Porky's trilogy remake.

Porky's was a trilogy? I had totally forgotten that. I've seen the first two, which I liked. I had no idea there was a third.
