The workprint just seems so unique... all the various music just makes it seem more fulfilling and somewhat of a statement that this is DEFINITIVE sci-fi: all the best ideas brought together. I also like Roy's introduction. However, the best part is that alternative rooftop voiceover, which always should have been in the movie...
Alternatively, I also like the Domestic Theatrical Cut... feels a tad bit more styilized and noir-ish with that awesome narration.

How could you possibly put Terminator 3 above Salvation.  Terminator Salvation is the greatest movie ever.  Right up there with Breakin 2 Electric Boogaloo.

As bad as Salvation was, I kind of enjoyed it. I actually haven't seen the majority of the movies of my "Top Ten" movies, but the ones I have seen are all movies I consider superlatively bad. Terminator 3 is one of those movies I truly loath. Just thinking about it makes me squirm in my seat a bit.

Terminator: Salvation, despite its many various and serious flaws, was a better movie in my opinion, but I think Terminator 3 is more in line with the original two, stylistically and in storytelling.   Neither come close to Terminator 2, of course.

When I first saw T3, the only thing I could think about was how stylistically it didn't fit with the first two films at all, and what stupid crappy humor it contained. Oh yeah, and how much of a loser John Connor was.

Terminator 3 followed the tired formula, but failed to get right anything that made the first two good.

There, that's all I can come up with. I don't really have a top ten - hell, I don't really have top favourites at all; there are just too many movies that I think are of more-or-less equal quality that I can't decide between them. I guess you could say this list is based on my past opinions more than anything else.

I’ve 1190 movies, 297 TV shows, 244 short films, & 21 miniseries yet to obsessively compulsively rewatch. Kill me now.

That's being as honest as I can. It's a hard job listing them all.

"The other versions will disappear. Even the 35 million tapes of Star Wars out there won’t last more than 30 or 40 years. A hundred years from now, the only version of the movie that anyone will remember will be the DVD version [of the Special Edition], and you’ll be able to project it on a 20’ by 40’ screen with perfect quality. I think it’s the director’s prerogative, not the studio’s to go back and reinvent a movie." - George Lucas
