Day 68: Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991) – 3D

Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991) – 3D

There are more wrinkles in time than I counted on. I don’t know from whom I’ve borrowed that phrase, but last week’s wrinkle was Kubrick replacing Antonioni unexpectedly and this week, just completed, it was Coppola’s The Godfather Part II replacing Truffaut’s two films, with an ill-fated attempt to knock off Dreyer’s The Passion of Joan of Arc (1928). Then along came the 3D-version of Terminator 2 (1991). I saw a trailer for it a few months ago and I realized that seeing this film in a cinema is an event, like Lawrence of Arabia or 2001 or Ben Hur or Spartacus. Like Intolerance or Battleship Potemkin. Like Dunkirk. A mate of mine, Larry the cucumber, liked Dunkirk, and was interested to know what I thought, so I prioritized it. Thursday hopefully – or Friday.
