DarKush said:The first Terminator was my favorite. T2 was a very good remake, with awesome special FX, IMO. But the first Terminator scared me when I was a kid. As cool as T-1000 was, and formidable as T-X turned out to be, neither one of them affected me like the T-800.

You are right about the T-800 being the best,
The T-850 was a beast too.

Despite being gritty and dark, which shouldn't be a positive in and of itself as it usually is for teens, though it is a positive considering the material in this movie, T1 just had so much more substance. Every scene was so carefully laid out to represent the clash between man and technology, it was subtle but prominent. Not to mention overall, the first movie put forth a very interesting reflection of the circular time theory, the photo at the end capped it off magnificently. Then the second film just completely contradicted that.Stringer said:The first was the best, grittier and darker the perfect setting for the story. T2, while good, was more campy with all the the terminators jokes and whatnot.
