As a total Terminator fan since the beginning, I was swept away by the timeline jump. Not due to such things being standard fare for the series in general, but because of the continuous change that brought back numerous Terminators according to technical advancements. The story, albeit harder to follow than the predecessor's, was tight in it's own right > minus the one flaw being that of the T-1000's clunkiness. However, I saw it in the theater & deemed it good enough to purchase for my collection.
I am a Terminator fan, but with Genesys I must say that I'm disapointed. There is a lot of "back and forward" things. Jason Clarke was not "John Connor material".

Different twist on a favorite action movie series
Owned for 1 month when reviewed.
While the first two movies in this franchise are still the best, this movie is a 'mashup' of the previous movies but alters and weaves them into a new chapter in the series. The action is still there but there is also a new 'semi-comic' twist where things happen at different times, and different ways, than the originals. The story line is a bit weak in parts but the new timeline makes this movie fun and enjoyable.
Summer of 2015 lead off with Avengers: Age of Ultron and didn't stop there, releasing some awesome films including Ant-Man, Mission: Impossible-Rogue Nation, Inside Out and many others. Although these movies are awesome and I love the ones listed, there was one that I really enjoy but many people pegged as one of the worst of that summer and even of 2015. I didn't particularly like Jurassic World although it was one of the biggest films of all time, Minions was mindless (But became one of the highest grossing films as well) and truly the worst film was Fant4stic for that summer. Terminator: Genisys is one if the more misunderstood films from 2015 and of the Terminator films that is sadly ranked amongst the worst. Fortunately, it is a good movie that deserves a second chance. The movie follows Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) who is sent back to 1984 to stop the T-800 from killing Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke), mother of John (Jason Clarke), the future leader of the Resistance. So it's pretty much the first film, at least at first, but while Reese is being sent through time, the personification of SkyNet (Matt Smith, of Dr. Who fame) kills John (or so we think). Meanwhile in 1984, things follow the same bits of The Terminator, but with the killing of John, the timeline changed, with Sarah and a Terminator called Pops (Arnold Schwarzenegger), this time prepared to kill the 1984 Terminator and find Reese. Following an attack by a T-1000 in 1984 (Byung-hun Lee) and learning of a new Skynet OS called "Genisys", the duo travel to the future to prevent Judgment Day and face a familiar face. I know the story is incredibly sophisticated and many people complained about the story being hard to follow, and it kind of is, truthfully. But, it is easier to follow as it comes along, but what's harder to swallow is some of the iffy casting. Schwarzenegger is back, and probably gives his best Terminator performance here, with the usual one-liners standing by, but it's also filled with the aging of the cyborg, that is having issues as time goes by, but also became more human in the process, as Cameron laid it out in His previous films that it has a learning computer to infiltrate more efficiently to humans. The trio of Reese, Sarah and John though, are miscast. All 3 are too focused on hiding their accents (Courtney is Aussie, the Clarkes English) to give engaging performances for the most part. Lee is a good T-1000, but the character didn't even need to be included, like at all. Other performances are decent overall, with J.K. Simmons being a standout as O'Brien. The screenplay is a tad overcomplicated, and it's uses of humor kind of fall flat, but still delivers a decent story overall. The direction by Alan Taylor does deliver the goods, with action scenes looking great, keeping the pace lively and manages to retain the visual sense Cameron laid out in his previous efforts. All in all, it is a fun movie with great effects and action scenes, but still can't beat the first 2 but handily defeats its 2 predecessors. On the Blu-ray we get a terrific 2.35 3D image, which has loads of depth to the film, along with some great use of pop-out moments. Probably one of the best conversions ever and a must own for 3D enthusiasts. The Dolby Atmos track is of reference quality and will unsettle your foundation, it's that good. The extras, though, disappoint. Although the film only broke even at the box office, I was still saddened at the lack of extras with the core 3D bluray. The film only has 3 featurette, all running about 55 minutes in length but there is still some good BTS stuff and nice looks into the many CGI effects, plot, characters and more. Sad we couldn't get a commentary, but it works for the most part but i suggest either grabbing the Best Buy exclusive or the 4K bluray, which both come with a bonus Bluray with over 90 minutes of material. All in all, a fun film that will satisfy the 3D and sound enthusiast but not many Terminator fans.

The actual 3rd terminator movie.
Owned for 1 month when reviewed.
IMO the best of the last what 4 movies made. The very last one, It was alright in cinematics but the story line was not the greatest. I wasn't exactly thrilled with the story line. I could not make sense of a few things. Like how Arnold knew where the terminators were gonna be sent? But this one was pretty darn good IMO. Definitely the best of the last 4 ones made.
