The theme for this week is ROBOT/CYBORG movie... My pick is The Terminator.
I know its a pretty old movie since it came out 1984. I didn't see it then but years after.. and I think it definitely made a breakthrough in cinema and the plot was original too... It started a movie franchise which become top Hollywood movies.
Here is a brief overview of the movie taken from Wikipedia.
The film takes place in 1984, introducing the concept of a "terminator", specifically the titular character (Arnold Schwarzenegger), a seemingly unstoppable cyborg assassin who has been sent back from the year 2029 by a collective of artificially intelligent computer-controlled machines bent on the extermination of the human race. The Terminator's mission is to kill Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) whose future son, John Connor, leads a resistance against the machines. A human, Kyle Reese (Michael Biehn), is also sent back from the future by John Connor himself to protect her.
