Terminator 1984 Behind the Scenes Interviews, Reviews and More – 10 Days to Terminator: Dark Fate

James Cameron and Arnold Schwarzenegger discuss the making of Terminator (1984)

The countdown to Terminator: Dark Fate has started! 10 days until Halloween and 10 days until this movie opens in theaters. Soon, we’ll know whether or not James Cameron’s influence made a difference in what could have been.

One thing I watched recently that has me even more excited was an interview back in 2017 when Dark Fate was being discussed by James Cameron and Tim Miller the director. They both have a good vision for this movie. Whether or not they can execute, I could tell from that discussion that they are passionate about doing this right. Here is that video:

I have been watching classic interviews of prior Terminator films. At the very top of this post, director James Cameron and Arnold Schwarzenegger discuss the original Terminator 1984 making of the movie process.

Michael Biehn who played Kyle Reese remembers the making of Terminator (1984)

Kyle Reese played by Michael Biehn was an integral part of the original Terminator movie. He goes back through his memory of working on the film:

  • James Cameron was flexible with dialogue
  • One of the most difficult stunts he has ever seen is the opening shot where the stunt guy was 6-7 feet laying sideways and jumped sidewise and landed on the cement nude.
Siskel & Ebert review The Terminator

Siskel & Ebert reviewing The Terminator. Have to watch to see which one didn’t like it. His review commentary suggests he didn’t seem to know the movie very well, which I found to be humorous.

I’m out there looking at other Terminator-related vidoes, getting excited for Dark Fate.

    1. We are talking about going to see in 4DX (I bet that will be an awesome experience), but probably everybody else is going to have the same idea opening weekend, so we’ll probably have to go with RPX first, since Regal doesn’t have Dolby Cinema (it has ATMOS only, I believe?). I’m digging this Reddit thread on the differences between all the different formats: https://www.reddit.com/r/movies/comments/84tlgz/dolby_cinema_vs_rpx/

      1. I’m not familiar with RPX, but Dolby Cinema is incredible. The difference compared to “standard” screenings is literally night and day. That’s basically the reason why I cancelled my Unlimited membership with Cineworld and signed for Limitless with Odeon.

        I would love to have both, because Odeon doesn’t offer 4DX or ScreenX, which are cool formats every once in a while, but I cannot “afford” both.

        I’m happy with Dolby Cinema though.


      2. I read the thread. Can you believe that I’ve never been to IMAX? Maybe one of these days I’ll go and compare it with Dolby Cinema.
