Make no mistake about it, The Terminator is a dark film. Arnold plays the terminator (Cyberdyne Systems Model 101 for you fanboys) like the grim reaper on steroids. He prowls the dark underbelly of Los Angeles, blasting his way to Hamilton's Sarah Connor character come hell or high water, killing her friends, family and anyone unlucky enough to cross his path. You know, aside from the gigantic time traveling robot aspect, Cameron also succeeds with injecting a gritty dose of realism into the film as well. The Terminator is a wildy fantastic sci-fi film that takes place in (seemingly) real world Los Angeles and thanks to Cameron's direction, you almost believe this type of wacky shit could really take place. Like how Christopher Nolan makes you think some rich nutbag could actually run around in a Bat suit. It's really amazing how well this film holds up nearly 30 years later.
Because of the film's dark suspense elements and geek-tastic plot, Cameron dubbed The Terminator as "tech-noir," a mix of classic film noir and science fiction. This was also the name of the dance club where Arn...er, the terminator first encounters Sarah Connor and where Tahnee Cain & the Tryanglz song, "Burnin' in the Third Degree" from the previous Take a Guess Challenge is heard.
Cameron had the whole time travel gimmick down before Zemeckis could take us Back To The Future. He also realized that audiences love robots and guns. When their powers combine...awesomeness was born.
