Time Travel Again

Star Trek, X-men, Mortal Kombat, and now Terminator have used a time travel plot and destroyed decades of canon. Is this going to be a thing with movies now? After we push out a couple of shit sequels will send someone back in time to prevent the original from happening. Are we going to see the same thing in the Aliens franchise next? Maybe Back to the Future?

Do you consider this trend to be a good thing? Do you think it is the only way to keep a series fresh and alive? Or do you think its a bastardization of the original franchise? Also, I'm I the only one that finds it funny that John Cho is in another movie involving a time travel plot whose only purpose is to reboot the franchise?

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

The Terminator franchise is one that really needs it, though. It's not gratuitous for two reasons.

First, it already revolves around time travel so its not like they're splicing it in to fix things. Sure, Trek had time travel in certain episodes and movies but the Terminator franchise is based on it. It's not out of the blue.

Second, Cameron painted them into a corner with the declaration of a judgement day date and has been painting around that corner ever since. There's really nowhere else left to go unless they move backward.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?

The Terminator was a time travel movie from the beginning.
