ODDITIES THEATER: The Terminator (1984)

After a long, tough week of work/school/raising kids/chores, it’s time to settle down on the couch with a big bowl of popcorn AND GET WEIRD.

This weekend we’ll be watching the 1984 classic The Terminator. I’d imagine most of you have already seen this (dozens of times, if you’re like me), and for those of you who haven’t yet seen it, you likely already know the plot due to the film constantly being referenced in all of pop culture. It’s time you see this film. And for those of you who’ve already seen it, it’s time to watch it again.

I could talk all day about this movie. I love it. I love the sequel (Judgment Day) even more. Maybe one day I’ll have a podcast where I can rant about all the movies I love and why I love them so much. Maybe even have a few episodes that nitpick the small details of certain movies, even the ones I love—like with this one, for example, there’s a scene where Kyle is teaching Sarah to make pipe bombs and he cautions her to handle them carefully, implying they’ll explode if she’s too rough with them. Then, just a minute later, he’s shoving them into a bag, being rough as hell with them and none of them explode. I remember noticing this as a kid and it really bothered me. Clearly it still does. I think about it often, and now so will you.

Alright folks, time to watch our movie. Until next time!
