The Power of the Thriller

“I’ll be back.”

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s line from the iconic thriller, The Terminator. The movie was directed by another icon, James Cameron. The Terminator had all the essential ingredients: good acting, action packed, clever concept, but… it didn’t make sense.

Great history of a real scoundrel. Totally unrepentant. I loved/hated him. Interesting look into a bygone era. Along the way a number of well known people are sucked in. President Grant for one!
