The Ter­mi­na­tor is back, as he promised he would be, but in a dif­fer­ent past and on a mis­sion to cre­ate a new fu­ture for mankind

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - MOVIES -

TER­MI­NA­TOR GENISYS (M) Nerang, Aus­tralia Fair, Coolan­gatta, Robina, Yatala Drive-In, Tweed City

Alan Tay­lor di­rects the re­boot of the Ter­mi­na­tor saga in which Jason Clarke is John Con­nor, leader of the hu­man re­sis­tance, who sends Sergeant Kyle Reese (Jai Court­ney) back to 1984 to pro­tect John’s mother, Sarah Con­nor (Emilia Clarke) and safe­guard the fu­ture. But an un­ex­pected turn of events cre­ates a frac­tured timeline and Sgt Reese finds him­self in a new and un­fa­mil­iar ver­sion of the past, where he is faced with un­likely al­lies, in­clud­ing the Guardian (yes, Arnold Sch­warzeneg­ger), dan­ger­ous new en­e­mies and an un­ex­pected new mis­sion – to re­set the fu­ture.

WALK­ING THE CAMINO: SIX WAYS TO SAN­TI­AGO (PG)

The Arts Cen­tre Gold Coast

A mod­est doc­u­men­tary about peo­ple mak­ing the an­cient pil­grim­age to San­ti­ago de Com­postela, the Catholic cathe­dral in Spain that some be­lieve holds the re­mains of the apos­tle James. This is not a re­li­gious film, how­ever. The in­di­vid­u­als we fol­low on the 800km walk from south­west­ern France to the church town in north­west­ern Spain are there for var­i­ous rea­sons. Amer­i­can film­maker Ly­dia Smith fol­lows un­ob­tru­sively, al­low­ing her sub­jects to tell their sto­ries in their own time. The gen­tle pace works.
