    I was listening to a radio show out of Fort Worth called Fanboy Radio, and one of the hosts mentioned that the production teams for Terminator: Salvation and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen had both gone back to the drawing boards a few times after learning that the other film's giant robot was bigger.
    Even if true, I'm sure Devastator could kick the ass of any giant Terminator.

    Terminator Salvation inferior.

    Pretty funny if true.

    I wonder if Devastator will be the biggest robot (120 ft) in a movie to date. Anyway, Terminator peeps can make a 200 ft robot and still wont have the hype that RotF has.

    Wrong: T3. Worst. Movie. Ever. Not even Arnold, nor an R rating could have saved it.

    Personally I'm looking forward to both movies.
    It's a simple and short way to agree with someone.

    I heard Arnold was to make an appearance in this final film.

    And I also read somewhere that one of the films was accused of copying robots from the other. . . can't remember which was doing the copying though.

    But seriously, Terminator should have stopped with the second film.

    Salvation's giant robot at the end of their trailer looks like Transmorphers.

    I've been waiting for a thread like this to come along...

    Terminator will be okay to start off the summer bash, and then Transformers will own.

    Much like Ravenxl7, I look forward to seeing both movies.

    I was under the impression that they were doing another whole trilogy? Could be mistaken, can't remember the sauce im afraid.

    And who else would like to see a shouting match between Bay and Bale?

    The new Teriminator rights owners had said they were going to do a trilogy about the future aspect of the war of humans VS the machines....instead we get a mad max wanna be movie that got in a bungled/fungled wreck with last resident evil movie....

    what a waste....

    I'd amend that slightly: no James Cameron = no real Terminator film. I mean, it's bad enough that they're replacing the world's greatest action director with the dude who made Charlie's Angels, but when that also means leaving behind the guy who originated the concept, the characters, the story and everything that made the original films interesting and unique, then how can you consider it a legitimate or worthwhile addition to the story canon? Christian Bale's involvement does at the very least suggest that the film might be watchable on its own merits, so I'm not totally writing it off, but at the same time I don't see any reason why I should take any interest in it...

    When it comes to Terminator the first two movies where all I needed. No interest in the franchise anymore.

    Although I didn't *hate* T3 (which I suppose isn't representative of the norm, from what I see and hear), I didn't really care about it either. So I guess I agree.
