The Terminator (1984) Dir. James Cameron
Let’s start with a good-looking, spunky female protagonist. Now add a brooding, handsome loner with an amazing secret. And finally, top it off with a towering, unstoppable killer who seemingly can’t be destroyed by mortal men. Looks like we got ourselves a good old-fashioned “slasher” movie, right? Wrong. We got ourselves a Terminator.
