    "Come with me if you want to live."
    - Kyle Reese

    'Terminator 2' was one of the definitive cinema experiences of my life. I was 14 when it came out in 1991 and my brother and I caught a screening of it while on holiday in the U.S. in the days when it seemed like every major movie would come out months before it did in England, where I grew up.

    - The Farmer
