Original thread. (http://www.chiefsplanet.com/BB/showthread.php?p=6776631#post6776631)

Bruce Lee and Chewbacca have moved on, with Lee claiming the higher seed by just one vote. Maximus fell short by two votes. It also appears John McClane and the Man With No Name will move on.

In our seventh heat, The Terminator, Martin Riggs (Lethal Weapon), Marion Cobretti (Cobra) and Jack Burton (Big Trouble in Little China) square off. The 80s - we sure shook the pillars of heaven.

For balance, we'll say there's some pools of molten metal and crushing machinery laying around our maze. The Terminator can most certainly be offed, if anyone is smart enough to figure out he's a robot fast enough.

Also, this heat is really, really good looking. Wow.

By the way, so far our top seed is Jason Bourne. Surprising.

Terminator is not a hero. First movie was by far the best.

I think Cobretti is kind of weak in this heat. He doesn't really appear to be that much of a badass. Cobra appears to be about making Stallone look as cool as possible and making his dick as huge as possible. No real substance.

Thank you. I never understood the love for Terminator 2. Edward fucking Furlong? Seriously? The first one is a sci-fi classic.

Martin Riggs in Lethal Weapon 1 and 2 would take all these chumps.

He became a puss/family man in the later flicks.

Terminator 2 is to to Terminator as Empire is to Star Wars.

Completely superior in every way.

Terminator is mostly mindless action, though cool, with a dumb love story haphazardly thrown on top. Some of the special effects look horribly dated. T2 still stands up pretty good.

I really like Edward Furlong in T2. I know he could have kicked Nick Stahl's ass, anyway. THAT was a terrible bit of casting.

I think T3 is better than given credit. No, its not T1 or 2, but Its got some slick action scenes and the ending doesnt wuss out. They actually carried though with the idea.

I actually love T3. Great flick.

I just hate the actor they picked for Connor.

Arnold carried the movie anyway.

I didn't love it, but I liked it. I liked the way it ended.

And yes, the actor who played Conner sucked. They should have used Furlong again.

T2 was great. The first one is a classic, no doubt. But T2 was a fantastic follow up. Furlong did fine for his part.

It's pretty bad, but it does move the story along and I appreciated it for that I guess. The choice they made for John Connor was AWFUL and the hot chick robot was a pretty bad idea IMO, even though she was great to look at, it didn't feel right in the movie.

Oh stuff it. It's above average. It has some hilarious bits and great action scenes.

I didn't hate it and I didn't love it. I'll leave it at that.

Neither have I.

But I have seen Cobra and it was fucking stupid, so I'm definitely not voting for him. And yes, Riggs turned into a giant vagina so he's not getting my vote either.

Seriously?

Two "play by their own rules" cops are beating out Jack "FTMFW" Burton?

This seeding system is just full of fail.

Jack Burton (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000621/): Just remember what ol' Jack Burton does when the earth quakes, and the poison arrows fall from the sky, and the pillars of Heaven shake. Yeah, Jack Burton just looks that big ol' storm right square in the eye and he says, "Give me your best shot, pal. I can take it."

There's no system. It's random.

Besides, Jack Burton is an assclown for 90 percent of that movie.

Son of a bitch must pay!

Jack Burton drives the Porkchop Express straight into the Terminator who is strangling Riggs. Termy survives but Riggs is now a pile of loose meat stuck in the undercarriage, and the Cobra stallone dies from inhaling his toothpick/matchstick because he's such a wannabe tool.
