Most definitely not the shining light of the franchise, Terminator 3 was the first non James Cameron Terminator and it may as well have had Fonzie jumping a shark on skies. The movie has some questionable casting and some even more questionable plot points. All that said, we still freaking love it. It’s kind of like having a dog that eats your shoes. It’s going to consistently ruin your day but maybe every once in a while it’ll hump your friend’s leg.
