9. 'Terminator 2: Judgement Day'
It's been 24 years since Terminator 2: Judgement Day hit theaters, and somehow the special effects still look impressive. At a time when floppy disks were still widely used, James Cameron and his team created a liquid metal robot that could walk through walls and transform into anything from a random street cop to the floor of a mental institution. It's hard to imagine a tougher killing machine, though Arnold Schwarzenegger, who played a less advanced Terminator, came back in time to destroy it. After nearly a quarter century and constant screenings on basic cable, it's impossible to turn the channel when this one comes on. And just pretend those awful, non-James Cameron sequels don't exist.
