In the lead up to the release of Avatar, James Cameron is doing lots of press, and MTV recently got a chance to ask the Terminator 1 and 2 director what he thought of McG’s Terminator Salvation. Trust me, you do not want to miss this one. FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT!
“I have seen it, and unfortunately I saw it the wrong way, on cable at the hotel, while I was working, over three nights because I don’t have much time,” Cameron said. “It’s better than I thought it was going to be.”
HO SNAP! He thought it was gonna suck because McG’s a loser and his mom’s a bitch but it actually turned out sorta decent! Or maybe he thought it was gonna be just sorta “meh”, and it turned out kinda “so so”! AW HELL NAH, SH-T IS GETTIN REAL!
But Cameron went on to praise McG and his creative team for their efforts while also noting that the movie was missing some essential elements that made the earlier films such classics. “It’s actually quite reverential to the mythos of the ‘Terminator’ world,” he said. “I think McG and the writers tried hard to keep reacquainting you with some of those ideas in the story that they were weaving. So actually I thought it was pretty cool. I did feel that it sort of lacked Je ne sais quoi.“
OH NO HE DI’IN’T, FRENCH WORDS FROM THE TOP ROPE!
