Goddamn, is the Fall ever a twinset of gloom and glory. There’s something sublime about watching the leaves turn, experiencing the air crispen, and observing the stars throb. But, at the same time? Man, does it make existing a struggle. Early evenings, dreary afternoons, and the promise of only more darkness for the foreseeable future.
Like I said, a twinset! For as much as I enjoyed Fall last week? Sunday was a soufflé of sadness and ennui.
The work week!
Anyways, thankfully, I got my own series of supplements to get me through the work week. And, I don’t just mean the uncomfortably large number of actual supplements I take on a daily basis. I also mean the variety of shows, games, and other pop culture popcorn I’m gorging on, to fight back the darkness.
And since this is Monday Morning Commute, I’ll enumerate them for you! Then, I hope you’ll join me in the comments section.
Hard to really bag on the news that Linda Hamilton is returning, right? I mean, every old as fuck person in Hollywood is returning to their either dormant or dead-as-fuck franchise at this point. As well, who knows. The Terminator flicks really don’t have anything to lose at this point.
How can you make me groan more than the proposed fifteen or whatever the fuck Avatar movies? Tell me that Jimmy Cameron is attempting to resurrect the Terminator franchise, again, with a fucking trilogy.
Arnold Schwarzenegger, no longer a marketable star, will return for the sixth Terminator movie, no longer a marketable franchise. That said — here’s hoping somehow, someway, it fucking rules.
Wait for it. The next Terminator movie has been…Wait. Wait. Wait. Terminated! Fuck, fuck I hate myself. And, should the franchise ever come back, it will be without Schwarzenegger.
The Terminator is apparently coming back, again. Don’t know how many stalled returns for the Terminator we can all get excited for, but who the fuck knows. If it’s a good movie, will I be excited? Sure. Does James Cameron returning, in tandem with Tim Miller give it a good chance at being good? Sure.
Terminator 2 is getting a rerelease next, presumably to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Skynet’s awakening. And what is a good rerelease, without a new poster?
A real fucking murderer’s row of intelligentsia have signed an open letter calling for a ban on Artificial Intelligence-based weaponry. Sure! Why not? Personally, I’ve always thought that if anything was to rise up and gain Artificial Intelligence, it would probably just be really fucking bored with us ape-folk. And our violence. And our war. But who knows. Maybe it would take on all of our wonderful traits, and subjugate the fuck out of us.
Is anyone around here a Terminator fanatic? I really can’t muster a fuck regarding the franchise, despite Terminator 2 being one of my favorite action movies of all time. So when this sort of shit is announced – a television show tying into a new movie – I just sort of shrug. I go, “where’s the beef?! Where is it?!” Everyone just looks at me weird like, dude, we’re talking about television shows. Not hormone-drenched cow flesh.
The hits just keep coming with Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. Not only is there less than a month until this game’s cyber-arm will blast our gaming G and P-spots, but the fucking game is starring none other than Kyle Reese. Can you feel my nipples hardening from there? I’m carving your name in ice with them. I love you. Let us love this game together.
