Terminator 2: Judgment Day

James Cameron’s sequel to his overachieving b-movie breakout pits terminator against terminator. But in hindsight, it’s really about old practical-effects Hollywood, embodied by Arnold Schwarzenegger’s leather-clad, quip-spouting cyborg, versus new digital Hollywood, aka sleek CGI that occasionally morphs into Robert Patrick. Arguing over who actually won here might make a fun post-film activity. -LG
