18? I never caught that Connor was supposed to be 18. I always assumed he was supposed to be mid-late 20's.

Reese did tell Sarah in the first movie that the original Terminator models had obviously fake skin that was easily spotted. Later models had more realistic skin that bleeds, sweats, etc. Aging skin isn't out of the realm of possibility.

Yeah the idea that the Terminators have living flesh that ages has been around for a while. Nothing new there.

Also, when the police are questioning Reese, they ask him why he didn't bring back a laser gun. Reese said only living things can pass through the time portal so he had to pass through butt naked, and the Terminator can pass because its exterior body is living flesh.

T-1000 is made of metal.

I'm just repeating what Reese said in the first movie. There are many plot holes in these movies. Although if technology improved that significantly from the T-800 to the T-1000, then maybe the time portal technology improved enough to allow inorganic material to pass through it. Although that doesn't explain why Arnold still had to come back naked in T2 and T3. Unless he just likes being naked.

I believe the T1000 and TX can pass through time because they're able to replicate human flesh. They both come back through time in human form.

There are three possibilities as to why the T-1000 could travel through time:

1. It's organic on some sort of base level, or it can mimic it.

2. It came with some sort organic coating which it shed upon arrival.

3. It's a movie, James Cameron wrote the screenplay, he says it can happen, so it can happen, it's a plot hole necessary to move the narrative forward.

I seriously don't think you can write a time-travel story you can't poke holes in of you want to, it's a plot hole magnet .

I mentioned a fourth possibility. Technology has improved dramatically between the time the T800 and the T1000 models were created. In that time, time portal technology improved enough to allow inorganic material to pass. Arnold keeps coming back naked simply because he likes being naked.

That's the best answer. Naked Arnold FTW!

Speaking of which, are we going to see Arnold's old wrinkly naked ass in this movie?

I had thought they say this is exactly the case. Nothing more to it, nor a plot hole.

They like being naked too.

Or it could just be they don't know how to mimic "old" clothes. They seem to have to visually observe whatever object they are mimicking. So they wouldn't be able to mimic old 1990s/2000s fashions until they see them.

Easy. Skynet downloaded a firmware upgrade for the time machines that allows metal terminators to travel back.

It also added USB 3.0 support and recognizes more than 4GB of RAM.

It seriously must be intimidating to know they're going to film your naked ass and then project you in 4K on a 50 foot screen or in IMAX.

Arnold looks good for pushing 70. The Terminator franchise is all good, because it hits close to the heart. T2 is my favorite film of all time. It got me into film and I've never looked back.

I believe #2 was mentioned in the T2 novelization. Or was it the script? Either way, it's left unaddressed in the film itself and I would have loved a throwaway exchanged where Sarah would have asked the T-800 about that.

He was born in 1518 and "died" in 1536. Christopher Lambert was 28 at the time. I love the movie but that has always bugged the crap out of me.

Re: Terminator: Genesis (2015, D: Taylor) S: Emilia Clarke, Jason Clarke, Jai Courtne

After watching the first two episodes of The Sarah Connor Chronicles, I'll try to be more optimistic about the casting in Genesis. I remember hearing a whole lot of fanboy outrage when Lena Headey was cast as Sarah, but seeing how well that worked out, I'm a bit more willing to give the 78-pound girl they cast in Genesis a chance. I was also dead set against the casting of Jai Courtney as John McClane's son in A Good Day to Die Hard, and while I've heard a lot of people cite him as one of the things wrong with the movie, I thought he was possibly its biggest asset.* I've also been told that Brian Austin Green and Shirley Manson are far better on the TV show than their casting seems on paper, so maybe casting for Genesis shouldn't be something to worry too much about.

* I still think it was a mistake to push Lucy to the side and give John yet another male sidekick, after setting up Mary Elizabeth Winstead so well in Live Free or Die Hard. I was looking forward to seeing the series continue with her as the lead, but Lord knows we're not allowed to have any good female action heroes aside from Milla Jovovich.

Christopher was 28!?! Wow. Considering 28 year olds these days look like 18 year olds.

That reminds me of the "Girl in Gold Boots" episode of MST3K where the guy on the left was supposed to be playing a young man trying to break into a criminal organization. They keep calling him "kid" and saying how green he is, etc:
