    Terminator 2: Judgment Day

    ★★★★

    Gotta be the first time I've seen T2 in a decade, but it still holds up marvelously. The bloat and kid-friendliess hurt it a bit in comparison to the original, but I wold be lying if I said this was anything other than great. James Cameron is the master of sequels.

Discarding the extreme campiness of the previous few entries and going for a slightly more realistic and considerably more serious story, OHMSS is an action-packed thrill-ride that has actual emotional stakes for the first time in the series so far.

    I said this about the previous two movies, but this one once again…
