Robot travels back in time to kill the mother of a resistance leader before he can be born. He says “I’ll be back” in a strange accent then fluffs the mission. Idiot.
Reason for bleaklisting?
Why send one robot back? Why not make it an elite squad of 7,000 just to make sure you get the job done?
Sarah Boner is having a night out when a mysterious man named Giles appears and tells her she’s in danger. Apparently a giant mouth that belches a lot has been sent from the future to kill her. The reason? Because in the future she gets a job for some company – Hammond Organ Inc. – which is a cover for the production of robots that look like giant mouths. Unfortunately, Sarah is crap at typing and accidentally instigates the production of 300,000 new robots that look like buttocks rather than mouths. Consequently, the robots lose the war because of this mishap so they have travelled back in time to kill Sarah and ensure the proper production line goes ahead. The evil robot shaped like a mouth tracks down Sarah and Giles but is ultimately killed when they manage to stitch it shut and it explodes after failing to prevent a belch. Giles dies after being struck by a giant tooth and Sarah escapes to fulfil the prophecy at Hammond Organ Inc.
Your future is in his mouth.
Who should direct?
Who should star?
Ray Winstone, Olivia Newton-John and Jason Statham.
Mr B compares the stories
James Cameron’s classic from the eighties would only be bettered by its sequel where Arnie is a good Terminator rather than a bad one. The original Terminator is genuinely terrifying with Arnie conveying its robotic nature especially well. Charlie has opted for robot mouths that burp as his key villains in this sci-fi saga that will never be unless substantial bribes are made or plentiful drugs are taken in Hollywood. Ray Winstone and Jason Statham are pretty tough guys but I’m not sure about Olivia Newton-John in this one. Xanadu maybe but The Burpinator? No.
