From his review of Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines in The New Yorker, I share with you two of Anthony Lane’s varied thoughts on the movie:

Terminator 3 … was designed to make the invasion of Iraq seem, on a dollar-per-minute basis, like pretty good value.”

“I would not choose to be the person who tells Arnold Schwarzenegger that the fine details of Terminator style—the leathers, the bike, the boots, and, yes, a pair of shades dusted with spangles—are now within an inch of a gay fetish.”

Neither particularly endears the movie to me.
