Shawn's Top 30 Films - #9: Terminator 2

I remember in fourth grade all of my classmates were raving about Terminator 2 (which had recently come out to rent on VHS I believe) but my parents refused to let me watch it. Finally one day my parents left for the day and my brother turned to me and asked “Ok fine did you want to watch Terminator 2?” It blew my young mind and it continues to blow my old mind (everything about that sentence sounds filthy) to this very day.

What’s not to love about Terminator 2? Great story, great characters, great action, great (not to mention ground-breaking) special effects – it has the whole package. It’s one of the best sci-fi/action movies ever made and may in fact be my all-time favourite sequel. Hang on, let me look at the rest of my list to be sure. Yep, it would appear this must indeed be my all-time favourite sequel.
