So all the robots in the world can turn into one gigantic super-robot, albiet with a tons of crawlspace for Senora Strongpunch to climb inside and hit the glowing red weakspot in the center.
Hollywood reusing ideas that were too stupid for the Matrix Revolutions.

But perhaps not for a potential reboot why the Wachowski Persons.

How much you wanna bet they don't bother explaining why another company is able to build and send back Terminators when even Skynet failed? How would that even work? It's a post apocalyptic world controlled by a single computer overlord. How in the hell would another company even exist? Shocking twist incoming?
You see, time travel made the post-apocalypse somewhat less apocalypse-y.

(Or maybe they're banking on most people in the audience caring fuckall about how "That nebulous villain who sends evil robots into the past" is actually called, which seems likely imo)

Can you watch something made post-WW1 already, Rushy? Christ, dude, you sound like an octogenarian.
I recommend All Quiet on the Western Front. Everything made after that can be safely skipped.

Yeah, German soldiers speaking English, no thanks. AQotWF was an example how sound film invention was a mistake. I don't watch that nu shit anyways, there hasn't been any worthwhile movie made since L'arrivée d'un train en gare de La Ciotat.

Are English speaking French soldiers a no-no too? Not a fan of Paths of Glory?

You do know you can always watch that movie in German with English subtitles?

All joking aside, these blatant "anti-war" movies are not for me. PoG has glorious cinematography and some fine acting, but its story is way too morally simplistic and its characters are too much one-dimensional caricatures, villains are exceedingly evil whose motives are impossible to identify at any level and seem almost insane, and the good guys are thoroughly righteous and noble. There isn't a hint of complexity, subtlety or ambiguity of Kubrick's subsequent films, like Dr. Strangelove or Full Metal Jacket, it's all so obvious and immature. Also, that ending, ugh.. A german girl, assumably a captured war prisoner, is brought in a bar full of drunken soldiers and they all are ready to jump her bones and when she starts singing all the soldiers start crying. Yeah right, I would like to see that in real life, 50 or so drunken males all reacting to something in precisely the same way. So subtle mr. Kubrick. War, military and nationalism bad m'kay.

Strange, we have a lot of anti-nationalism films but few anti-Socialism films.

It's more foreign-y aka classier that way.
