Frozen II

Can you believe it has been six years since the original Frozen hit theaters? Sure we remember all the words to “Let it Go” like we heard it yesterday… and I’d bet some of us literally did with the holiday season simmering in. The animated musical is now a bona fide modern classic, one of Disney’s biggest hits and became a swift cultural phenomenon when it blew into cinemas back in 2013. But with Frozen II coming out this weekend, you might be in need of a recap!

Linda Hamilton (“Sarah Connor”) and Arnold Schwarzenegger (“T-800”) return in their iconic roles in Terminator: Dark Fate, directed by Tim Miller (Deadpool) and produced by visionary filmmaker James Cameron and David Ellison. Following the events of Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Terminator: Dark Fate also stars Mackenzie Davis, Natalia Reyes, Gabriel Luna, and Diego Boneta.

The longest time to pass between Terminator movies was twelve years, from James Cameron’s action masterpiece T2 in 1991 to Jonathan Mostow’s shoddy Rise of the Machines in 2003. Since then, even though they continually struggle to find and resituate their stories and main characters, it’s been five to six years from film to film, taking us from Salvation to Genisys and t...
