Terminator: Dark Fate (2019)

I loved this. It has all the intensity of the original film, plus it also manages to make women the real focus of the film. It’s not John who saves mankind from the machines, it’s Dani who gives people hope, and is the focus of our future resistance. Sarah Connor is one of the great feminist icons of the twentieth century. Dani Ramos is the reality of her strength for the twenty first. She is not Sarah, a womb for John, she is John, the fighter that brings the battle. The things is, that realisation and its manifestation as a person, has taken more than thirty five years. That’s not great, in fact it’s very poor, a fact that’s interesting on so many levels.
