Does anyone remember the first two movies of the Terminator saga? For me, the best ones.

Both starring Arnold Schwarzenegger as The Terminator and Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor.

Also appearing: Michael Biehn, who stars as Kyle Reese. Edward Furlong as John Connor and Robert Patrick as T-1000.

The Terminator

Directed by James Cameron in 1984.

Terminator, model T-800, is a cyborg assassin who comes from the future and pursues the defenseless Sarah Connor to kill her before she gives birth to John Connor.

John Connor is the leader of the human resistance in the future and they fight against Skynet, an artificial intelligence that wants to destroy humanity.

He sends a soldier from the future, Kyle Reese, to protect Sarah. They fall in love and she gets pregnant with John.

Terminator 2: Judgment Day

Also directed by James Cameron in 1991.

From the future come Terminator, The T-800 (Arnold Schwarzenegger) reprogrammed to protect John, still a child and the T-1000, an improved version whose goal is the opposite.  To kill John.

Terminator and John rescue Sarah Connor from the mental hospital where she is confined because no one believes her story about the future.

Now she is ready for the fight and wants to destroy Skynet’s creator. Sarah is no longer that fragile character from the first movie. She is trained to kill.

They do not have it easy because the T-1000 harasses them at all times.

If you feel like watching the complete movies: Terminator  and  Terminator 2, Judgment Day. Both on Amazon Prime Video.

The importance of Linda Hamilton in Terminator 2

When James Cameron called Linda Hamilton to discuss her role in the second film, she said she wasn’t going to play the innocent waitress in the first film. She told him what she wanted and the script was written that way because of her. She changed Sarah’s attitude and image. And for a few months she trained very hard, preparing her body and learning how to use weapons and fight. She had just given birth two weeks before!

This is explained by themselves in this video:

Sarah Connor’s iconic sunglasses

In this second film of the Terminator saga, Sarah wears these iconic Matsuda sunglasses, the 2809H from 1989, while reflecting on:

“Watching John with the machine, it was suddenly so clear. The Terminator would never stop. It would never leave him, and it would never hurt him, never shout at him or get drunk and hit him or say it was too busy to spend time with him. It would always be there and it would die to protect him. Of all the would-be fathers who came and went over the years, this thing, this machine was the only one who measured up. In an insane world, it was the sanest choice”

She only wears them for a minute but the scene is a close-up of her and they can be appreciated quite well.

They perfectly complement her new personality.

Now, Matsuda has re-released these 1989 sunglasses in their V2 version with some minor changes.
