Been to the movies a lot recently, with Joker and Weathering with You and The Sky is Pink. 

Next watch at the hall will be this. I like the book, but the movie might be better!

 

Yet another adaptation!

But this one looks... different.

Hmm whats the point of studios announcing movies so well in advance?Thats still 2.5 years from now and a lot of things can change. :|


For investor/business reasons. Big budget movies are often announced early by big publishing houses.

Saw Terminator Dark Fate. Pretty good movie. Lots of awesome fight/chase scenes. Finally a good Terminator movie after many flops.
 

Remember that the movies after 2 is non-canon. It is practically a reboot.  

Yes, enjoyed it a lot. Went with insanely low expectations but the movie surprised the f**k out of me. At times I was pinching myself to check whether I really was watching a good terminator movie. 

Also its a direct sequel to T2, hope thats not a spoiler :P

Watched Terminator: Dark Fate.

Thought it was pretty bad. It's pretty much a rehash of the first two Terminator movies. Only now it's tired, predictable and significantly worse! Not sure if it was the writing or the acting but the whole setup now sounds like a bunch of nonsense too.

I just couldn't give a sh*t about anyone or anything in the movie. I thought what they did with Arnold's character was kinda amusing but it wasn't explored nearly enough as much as it should have.

Ohh and all the cuss words are censored too (with either mutes or stupid replacements). Yup...all. For some reason they decided to go for a UA rating in India for an R-rated movie. It significantly lowers the impact of many dialogues.

And barring the first highway chase sequence (which was pretty good), nothing really stands out in the action department either.

Can't believe I got suckered into watching a new Terminator movie.

Well it is significantly better than 4 and 5 in many ways.  If you expect Terminator to have the same quality of Avengers or any Oscar movie then it is not going to happen. Not inspiring or memorable but it was a good time pass movie. 

 

when is the last time a R-rated movie was released in Indian theatres? The same is also happening in Prime and Netflix too. Any nudity or gore scenes are edited out.  Other than language, they also cropped the butt scenes out (remember the trailer).  
 

Have not seen Joker yet so I don’t know how much is edited out. I never watch an R-rated movie in a theatre since I am aware of the censor nature here.

R rated movies definitely release here. It is just that in Terminator's case, distributors went with UA rating as that is obviously more appealing commercially.

What are you even talking about? Nothing is censored on prime and Netflix. Joker was released with only 2 muted words, once upon a time in Hollywood was also released without any cuts, only 4-5 cuss words were censored. f**k etc wasn't even censored. And those are the movies released this year. There have been countless other movies.

I recall how brutal the first Deadpool was cut in India. Deadpool 2 and Logan were less with some muted words. John wick 3 has 3 minutes cut (the finger cut is one example). The cuts are quite erratic. One thing for sure that sex, nudity and some words are removed. The gore is on case to case basis.

It's just my opinion, but I think it has to do with the fact that Terminator 2 - The most popular Terminator movie and the one ehich is most commonly watched in India - is UA rated in India. T2 is basically what comes to mind first if anyone even refers to Terminator here. And a lot of kids watch that. So tons of kids go watch new Terminator movies, expecting T2 levels. So publishers cannot actually release an R or AO (US Rating) Terminator movie here without it seeming strange and alienating tons of people from the franchise.
