Terminator 2: Judgement Day (1991)
Hasta la vista, baby.
So basically: Several years after the events of the first move, Sarah Conner has faced a lot of hardships because of what she knows. Her son, John Conner, future leader of the resistance, is now a teenager and living with foster parents. This time, a new, more powerful, terminator is sent back in time to destroy John, instead of Sarah. A modified terminator, resembling the terminator who tried to kill Sarah, is also sent back by the resistance to protect John.
This is the most memorable Terminator movie for me (well, sort of. I’ve never actually seen the third one!) and my favourite. I think Eddie Furlong was brilliantly cast as a young John Conner and does not take away from the awesomeness that is Sarah Conner! The story can get a tad confusing with all the time-travel, but that’s only if you think about it too much, like me! So really, even non-sci-fi fans can enjoy it.
Defs did not suffer the curse of the sequel and does deserve to be on the list.
Ziggi seal of approval!
