I loved the Star Trek revival, but it taught Hollywood a cruel trick: Run out of sequel/rehash ideas? Easy! Just create a parallel universe time-shift, disregard all prior episodes/events, and start over again. First it was X-Men, now it's Terminator- to an insulting level. Add a lame excuse why Arnold is so old, and a politically-correct Asian T-1000, re-use every good moment of the first two installments, and you're set. The time-travel paradoxes here are so convoluted, I couldn't figure out whether Kyle Reese fathered Arnold or vice-versa. But this probably won't stop you from seeing the movie anyway.
