What are you?

 


ターミネーターの映画で一番いいところは日米同時公開をしてくれるところでしょうか。あまり期待値を上げるといけないのでこのように言っておきます。ロボットと思っている相手に対してはWho are you?ではなくWhat are you?になるんですね。

Sarah Connor: So you’re here to protect her. What are you? I’ve never seen one like you before. Almost human.
Grace: I am human. Just enhanced. You know, increased speed and strength, a microreactor. Which means, I can rip your throat out if you p*ss me off, so don’t.

この動画のコメントにあったように、せめてターミネーター2でやめておけばという意見はあるでしょう。

Holywood keeps trying to make Terminator sequels to a story that already was told. How can you make a good sequel on a finished story? That's like making a sequel to Titanic.

この映画の副題はDark Fateとかニューフェートとかなりますが、ターミネーターファンならピンとくるメッセージのようです。






ターミネーターのWikiサイトで詳しく説明してくれていました。

"There's no fate but what we make for ourselves." is a famous line from the Terminator franchise.

UsagesEdit
Sarah Connor carved "No fate" on the wood table outside Enrique Salceda's house before she went to assassinate Miles Dyson. John Connor told the T-800 that "The whole thing goes: The future's not set. There's no fate but what we make for ourselves." Terminator 2: Judgment Day

In the beginning of the film, John Connor's first line of his monologue is "The future has not been written. There is no fate but what we make for ourselves." Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines

After the surgery, John Connor's last line of his monologue is "There is no fate but what we make." Terminator Salvation

まあ映画を見て水戸黄門的なお決まりパターンとYutaは思ったのですが、似たようなことを感じていた人もいました。

WRITTEN BY MATTHEW TOOMEY  CREATED: 30 OCTOBER 2019

If you think of long running animated series like The Simpsons and Family Guy, you’ll know that for the most part, every episode begins anew with no knowledge of what occurred in previous instalments.  It’s why Bart Simpson is still in the 4th grade despite the show running for more than 30 years!

This same logic is starting to creep into the film world.  Halloween was released in 1978 and was followed by nine sequels (most of them very average) between 1981 and 2009.  When the producers brought back Jamie Lee Curtis and pushed the reset button in 2018, they asked audiences to ignore all the previous movies and pretend this new movie was a direct follow on from the 1978 original.

That’s again the case here.  Director James Cameron wowed audiences a few decades ago with The Terminator (1984) and Terminator 2: Judgement Day (1991).  The later was the highest grossing movie of that year.  After a lengthy pause in the franchise, three more sequels followed in 2003, 2009 and 2015.  They didn’t make enough money and so, once again, it’s time for a reset.  We’re asked to believe those movies occurred in an “alternative timeline” with Terminator: Dark Fate picking up the storyline not longer after the events of Terminator 2: Judgement Day.

全米の興行収入は1週目がイマイチで、2週目もさらに落ち込んだとか。。。流石に観客もお腹いっぱい感があるんでしょうか。

 WRITTEN BY GINA CARBONE

The news just keeps getting worse for Terminator: Dark Fate. It had a disappointing opening last week and a sharp drop in its second weekend at the box office. It also had the worst Friday-to-Friday drop of any other Terminator sequel in the franchise.

Not a great start to a potential trilogy, it must be said.

いろいろネガティブなことを書きましたが、リンダ・ハミルトンのかっこよさは健在でした。



ハミルトンはさらりとHieronymus Boschの荒野の洗礼者聖ヨハネ(St. John the Baptist in the Wilderness)を出していますが、この絵の意味を理解しなくても別に言いたいことはわかりますよね。
