2. Terminator 2: Judgment Day
I have to admit I have a personal bias against the first movie – I really didn’t think it was all that great. But the sequel? Oh, my God, What a comeback! Arnold Schwarzenegger’s “tin-man like” swagger, Robert Patrick’s fluid, menacing movements as the advanced T-1000 killing machine, Sarah Connor’s slightly insane attempt to single-handedly save the world, the bratty kid's (Edward Furlong) eventual attachment with his robotic friend, and the mind-blowing special effects that were leagues ahead of anything being made in that time…all combined to make one hell of an effect on the audience.
