    I just saw Terminator Genesys and I thought it was pretty good. I even liked the actress playing Sarah Connor.

    The one thing I could never figure out about the whole Terminator timeline is how John Connor could even exist in the first place.

    John sends Kyle Reece back to 1984 to protect Sarah from the first T-800 , they conceive John Connor.

    But how could have John existed in the first place before Kyle's trip back in time?

    And now with altered timeline , Kyle and Sarah end up in 2017 which would have made John just a baby when the war started if they had not been successful at destroying Skynet (Genesys). My theory is they weren't because the film suggests that Genesys is some new kind of internet that instantly connects every internet capable device. Or something like that. Which is a concept the writers never had to deal with until now.

    But once again , a baby that shouldn't exist.

    Young CGI Arnold Schwarzenegger wasn't bad either. You almost couldn't tell.

    I didn't mean that last comment in a gay way.

    I meant you couldn't tell it was CGI.
