    Terminator Genisys

    ½

    It is hard to describe how stupid this movie is, but let's use this as an example: in 1984 Sarah Connor has a time machine and wants to use it to travel to 1997 to stop Skynet from getting online at the last minute, instead of maybe spending the 13 years stopping it at her leisure.
