It may be time to shut down Skynet for a while and allow for Terminator franchise fatigue to abate. Recently appeaing on MTV’s Happy Sad Confused podcast, actress Mackenzie Davis opened up about the lukewarm reception to Terminator: Dark Fate.
I strongly feel like she’s wrong about franchise fatigue. I think she’s on to something though when she’s talking about the headbutting between the two creatives (Miller and Cameron), and I think that the franchise only works when there’s a singular strong creative leader that’s able to give a larger vision of what they want to do with the story.
For my part, I enjoyed Dark Fate more than the previous two entries.
