Terminator Genisys hit theaters last week, and while some people greatly disliked the new movie, director James Cameron — who helmed the first two films of the popular franchise — reportedly gave the fifth feature in The Terminator film series his stamp of approval.
With the recent release of Genisys, the folks over at the JoBlo Network have put together a 10-minute video look back at the history of The Terminator film franchise that includes scenes from all five films, as well as plenty of behind-the-scenes footage mainly from the first two installments, focusing on the outstanding special effects. Watch the video here below.
The Gold Box spotlight deal of the day over at Amazon today is the Terminator Anthology Blu-ray box set for only $24.99 (that’s 50% off the list price of $49.99). The set includes all four Terminator films – The Terminator, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, Terminator Salvation – along with bonus features.
Also on sale today is the Terminator Anthology Blu-ray box set for only $27.99 (that’s 44% off the list price of $49.99). The set includes all three Mad Max films – Mad Max, The Road Warrior, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome – along with bonus features, like feature-length commentary.
Note, this deal is valid only for today, Thursday, August 15, 2013, until 11:59pm PST while supplies last.
I’m going to assume that 99.9% of us have seen at least The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day, if not Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines as well. If you have not, and you’re planning on seeing Terminator Salvation this week, then Geeks of Doom is your place to make sure you at least have some kind of an idea of what the hell is going on.
Keep in mind — I can absolutely promise you that Salvation and any others ever made will not be anywhere near as good as the first two, and I strongly urge you to see them first; but if you just don’t have time and have to get you some Christian Bale action now, hopefully this will help out a little.
