10Terminator 2: Judgement Day (1991)
Terminator 2: Judgement Day boasts one of the most memorable villains in film, and it’s also the epitome of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s acting career as a hulking, intimidating beast of a man. Sarah Connor is also at her best kicking ass and cementing a perpetual role for the female heroine.
It was an important film in more ways than one, and not a lot of science fiction movies can carry that accomplishment. It’s just a shame the subsequent Terminator movies were all pretty lousy, especially the newest entry. It might be time to bury this franchise indefinitely and try to remember the good times.
