Interests
I had severe doubts about this movie seeing the trailer, as well as the previous 2 films meh-ish outcome. But being a big Terminator fan, I had to watch it anyway. Coming out, and seeing the film twice in theaters, I have to say, I was not disappointed in the least and I recommend this film to be seen at least once, if you're into general action films or if you're a Terminator fan. Just don't go into this movie expecting some great psychological thriller, though; and don't expect anything to make complete sense - because it doesn't. Then again, with each film, the plot-holes just gets more numerous, and I really didn't expect the 5th film to magically remedy the original plot problems with the Terminator franchise.

Note: They actually edited out the cheesiness from the trailers in the final product, which I was happy to see. The sections shown in the trailers are pretty different in the actual film. And the CGI looks much better than the trailer (which looked really unfinished).

What I liked: Aside from a ton of robot ass-kicking, this movie delivers a bit of everything. It has pretty good action, likable characters, awesome designs, some lovable moments, and the musical score was pretty good as well. It has probably one of the coolest "future-war" sequences in the Terminator without being completely about it. If you like the pink/purple pew-pew lasers from the first 2 movies, you'll enjoy the first segment of this film - I did. If you like movies that happen quickly, this film also delivers. Things kick in very fast and only takes a few breaks in between. There is no unnecessary romance or pretentious "deep" moments. And finally, if you like a bit of humor and one-liners, this film has you covered as well. Terminator: Genesys is actually a pretty funny movie, without it being silly like Rise of the Machines.

What I disliked: If you really think about the plot, it doesn't make much sense. All the plot problems with previous 4 movies get's compounded together in a bit of a mess. Not to mention this kind of erases the 3rd and 4th films, since things happen differently even before the time-travel. Some of the acting is a bit questionable, but over all not bad (Arnold carries a lot of this movie, that's for sure). Many things are left unexplained, but I'm assuming they will addresses in any sequel films. I honestly don't expect any time-traveling movie to make sense (I have to say, it was a lot better with the time-traveling bullshit than Interstellar was, that's for sure).

Over all: I'd have to give it a 7.5/10 (my scale being T1: 8/10, T2: 10/10, T3 5.5/10, TS: 5/10), and for me was worth watching twice. :) (I liked it better than Jurassic World; that movie was made from cheese).

I've seen your work of ClayMore. You know, for shadows in manga ClayMore are used touches, else you page isn't similar. I can show you, how to make such shadows, because recently painted myself (watch my last work with T-34-85)! Wirte to, for example, rc_38@mail.ru.

But I am russian - and
poorly know english...

I'm not trying to replicate the claymore manga style. Im just making a doujin with my non-canon characters. I haven't added the screentones, yet, either.
