Do we really need a Terminator reboot?

new-sarah-connor-emilia-clarke-terminator-genesis-e1386987102134-530x362According to the interwebs, Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen, the Mother of Dragons, from the HBO series Game of Thrones) will be playing Sarah Connor in the new Terminator reboot. But the question is, do we really need one? I don’t know about you but I’m growing mighty sick and tired of my favourite classic movies being redone, and being redone badly. I like Emilia but I fear for this movie. Just think about the recent Total Recall remake where they pretty much forgot to add everything that made it a good movie, including the mutants. It ended up being an awful movie.

I guess we’ll see how it turns out. I’m pretty skeptical, I must say. I’ll watch it for Emilia Clarke but I won’t hold my breath that it’ll be a decent homage to the original.

What do you think? Do you think Emilia Clarke is fit for the role of Sarah Connor?


Gravity (2013)

A medical engineer and an astronaut work together to survive after an accident leaves them adrift in space.

I went into this movie excited and I wasn’t disappointed. One thing they captured well was a sense of tension. The special effects are beautiful enough to make you wonder if they actually shot the film in space. The acting is subtle; Sandra Bullock plays her part very well (except she does kind of breathe hard for being low on oxygen) and she deserves an Oscar for her role. One lesson we learn again is that it’s all the Communists’ fault.

Well worth the watch if you’re into suspenseful space movies! 8/10.
