Saga Review: The Terminator

So with Terminator: Genisys arriving to cinemas soon I feel it is important to look back at the series as a whole. I love the Terminator franchise, or at least I love the first two movies and appreciate the mythos and universe they have created. The series itself is a bit of a contradiction: on…

Asides from some similarities between films three and four, the only recurring element is Tom Cruise himself, and given the original film perhaps catapulted his career you cannot blame him for returning…
