McG Talks ‘Terminator 5,’ Admits Mistakes in ‘Salvation’

It’s no secret that we here at The Moving Arts weren’t big fans of McG’s take on the “Terminator” franchise with this year’s “Terminator Salvation.”  In fact, in our review we called it “as desolate, joyless, and lifeless as the robot-ruled world it depicts.”  Needless to say, we’re not too keen on seeing what the […]
