"Just to register emotion, jealousy, devotion, and really feel the paaaaaart!"

Movie: Terminator Salvation (2009)
Plot: Batman somehow goes back to the future to yell at Metallo and then fight the governor of California. Transformers make a cameo.
IMHO: This overblown, PG-13-rated entry is packed with action but sadly lacking in the humanity (and heart — see what I did there?) that made the original “Demon with a Glass Hand,” I mean, Terminator so good. BTW, giving John Connor a terminator’s (real? lab-grown?) heart is interesting, but the rumored original ending, with a terminator becoming Connor, seemed like a much more ironic and organic idea.
Compared to the great Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, this movie proceeds from a false assumption.
If William Shatner had directed it, he would’ve had the star Sam Worthington (or was it Christian Bale?), do a roll on the ground a few times.
If Scotty had seen the movie with me, he’d have said, “I wouldna mind taking one of those robots apart. Nothing personal.”
SPOILER: Dr. Silberman does not make an appearance.
I give this movie: .5 Nomads out of 5 (minus 2 Nomads for giving Helena Bonham Carter work)
