Ep. 117 — THE TERMINATOR (1984)


Our Time Travel series continues this week with one of the most popular time travel films of all time, and one that started one of the biggest film franchises in the world, James Cameron's THE TERMINATOR!

This is the film that birthed Gary's hangups with time travel films in general. Has he softened on it or is he standing his ground?

As usual, we'll discuss the origins of the project, from Cameron's early days as a set painter for Roger Corman to the creation of the film itself and how it catapulted its star into the Hollywood A-list!

We also get into the film's legacy, the huge media franchise that it spawned, and how it effected the face of sci-fi cinema! 

And all of this leads into that one big question: Is THE TERMINATORgood enough for the Psychotronic Hall of Fame? Let us know by voting in this week's poll!
