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.
That is what i had in mind. Didn't want to elaborate it properly like you did.

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.


See men in black international in Prime. It blur and cut the part where the 2 aliens copied the poor middle eastern man before turning into a blob. 
 

Lot of movies with nude and gore content are removed from their offering. Request you to find any movie you found with nude or gore content and see if it is still there now. 
 

The self-censorship is just getting started. Google it.

Hmmm. T2 is indeed the best one in the series but not something kids should watch. Still those kids are now adults so would not get bothered by the R rating.

Well it is significantly better than 4 and 5 in many ways. 

 

That's not really saying much, is it?

And I would actually say it's on par with 4. Not significantly better.

If you expect Terminator to have the same quality of Avengers or any Oscar movie then it is not going to happen.

 

How did you even come to the conclusion that I was expecting it be Oscar material? :lol:

Can't a movie be good without it being oscar worthy? Was Terminator 2 Oscar material? Was Deadpool?

T2 won 4 oscars.

Technical oscars.

IIRC even some of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies have technical oscars. You wouldn't exactly bring those movies up when you hear the phrase "oscar worthy" though, would you?

And no, I'm not comparing T2 with PoTC. I'm just trying to make my point.

Dhan dhana dhan goal is an underrated movie. (Apart from the unwanted Bipasha Basu angle)

 

One of the best sports movie in Bollywood for me, Iqbal and bhaag Milkha being way ahead (although it's a biopic) but dhan dhana makes me emotional.

I don't find chak de India to have the same re-watch value.

And Dangal was very boring the first time itself.(didn't even finish it)

Talking about dangal and dhan****goal in the same sentence, are you high dude ? Also, just FYI, dangal was a original, dhan dhan whatever was a poor remake of, guess what, Goal !!

Yes absolutely. Also its very rare for an out and out action movie to win multiple Oscars outside of technical categories. T2 just happens to be one of the greatest movies ever made on top of being a pure action movie, and IMO where James Cameron peaked.
