Uhhhh Jay, This is a "working" draft, It isnt the final shooting script

This movie makes me drool, I love those endoskeletons and the way the terminator sees, so cool. The hyper violence of the 80's is a lost art now. I love special effects that are non computer generated, old school. I love Cameron and Arn.

Loving the ticklish scene, wish they'd included that in the real movie.

Basically this is the script for the movie before it was shot and dialogue changes depending on the actors ability with the lines and also the sound of the dialogue. I wouldn't kick up a fuss based on every single line not being the same. Also you can see the deleted scene of Sarah tickling Reese on the bonus features of the special edition dvd release of Terminator.

I thought this movie was brill, it is almost better than James Cameron's Titanic.

One of the greatests Sci-fi films of the last two decades. Definitely one of Arnie's greatest roles even though he only has about 20 lines as the T-101 Terminator. If you like the first installment, the second and possibly third are must-sees.

Ruined the best line of the file "I'll come back". What?


fakeharlanellison (10 out of 10 )
I find the complaints funny, because really this 1983 draft copy is great to read, especially while watching the movie, because you can see what things they chose to cut, and what things got altered to make more sense as far as like regular speech and conversation. Also there's the "no fate but what we make" in here which becomes a regular theme of the series in T2, which I felt was a sad omission, but I think the edit of the film as it stands is nice and tight so it makes up for it in that sense. As someone who's trying to be a screenwriter, this is a fantastic tool.
