18. 'Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines'
The Terminator 3 team faced some serious challenges. James Cameron – the genius behind the original Terminator and the brilliant sequel – had no interest in coming back on board. The movie focuses heavily on John Connor, but Edward Furlong was facing severe addiction issues and was unable to reprise the role. They did have Arnold Schwarzenegger, but it had been nearly 20 years since the original and robots don't tend to age. It was still probably possible to make a good Terminator movie with these issues, but Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines is pretty much a disaster until the final five minutes, when it actually gets kind of cool. Arnold is supposedly returning for yet another Terminator in the next couple of years. Our expectations are very, very low.
