Arnold Schwarzenegger is probably most famous for his role in the movie “Terminator,” when he says, “I’ll be back.” Well, it looks like he was right, as the new movie “Terminator: Genisys” is now in theaters.

This time, Sarah and John Connor are using time travel to fight the robots. But what happens in the future also changes what happens in the past. If this movie is anything like the first three, it should be filled with action, even though the story is so bleak.

Gary and Sara are talking about the new Terminator movie. Find out if they want to go see it in today’s English lesson.

Sara_R:  Gary?

Gary:  Yes.

Sara_R:  Are you going to go see “Terminator: Genisys”?

Gary:  I actually just watched the trailer, and I have to say, there is so much action in it. Wow! There is just so much happening. Really bleak story, though. Everyone is so unhappy and…

Sara_R:  Humanity needs to be saved.

Gary:  Thank you. Yes.

Sara_R:  With the help of time travel. Machines versus people. Kind of along the same lines as the other two movies.

Gary:  I love how dark and depressing the series is. I think the premise of Terminator is so great. I love it.

Sara_R:  It’s so fun. It’s such a great escape.

Gary:  And the idea of humanity and survival and machines. And how it all goes against each other. And then, to put time travel in, and have people going forward and backward. And who’s on whose side…

Sara_R:  OK, OK. You’re talking me into it. I want to see this movie now.

Gary:  Well, I think it comes out soon, so let’s get a few people together.

Sara_R:  Let’s do it. That’d be awesome.

Big respect to Arnold Schwarznegger. All his movies is a blast. I’m s big fan of his talent. Plus, to my good surprise, he’s the conservative, supported gay marriages in America. It’s a great positive move of democracy. It’s not stagnation, it’s respect, it’s big move of love.
I also want to greet all the Americans and English Baby educational website with the great holiday they celebrate today- 4th of July!!! Happy Independence Day, guys!

No i didn’t see the movie at all! :p

I am not a fan of Arnold`s films, so i can`t give a valid opinion . Some of you may have asked what does it mean the word ” Genisys” .  I did,  and i looked it up in the web.  

“Genisys” is a acronym and stands for … General Identification System….

Description… Computer system for biological identification.   hope it helps.

I won’t see it in the cinema, but maybe i will see it at my laptop next time. I have just seen the trailer of “Terminator Genisys”, and it really looks along the same lines the previous parts. Sometime I watch some actions movies just to escape. But what can i say about this trailer - it’s the simular premise like in many others mowies

I have watched Terminator 1 and liked it. But I’m not sure about seeing another movie along the same lines. 

Anyway, if our Princesse and ScienceBoy watch this movie and say it’s good I’ll watch it too. 




I love robot movies, I love robots in general but trailer seemed a little bit cheese to me. Anyway, I’ll give it a shot and see this movie.

La Princesse de la vie


I only saw Terminator movie one, it was about a man and a woman whom were Arnold Schwarzenegger was trying to save when doomsday comes to ensure that humanity will proceed and not to come to an end, but I don’t remember why that female robot was trying to ruin everything!

I didn’t know it’s a series till now. I don’t even know whether I’ll see it or not, but I like fiction, I like that time travel is involved into it. I don’t like bleak stories, but some action-packed movies are fun for me. Perhaps I will watch it at the end.
