What If The Terminator Films Are Actually What Causes Skynet To Become Self-Aware? [VIDEO]

It's Aliiiiiiiiiiiive!

That was the thought I had after watching this featurette from the Stan Winston School of Character Arts concerning Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines special effects. Granted, it may not be anyones’ favorite Terminator film but it was the one where they showed everything going down for the first time. And now I can’t help but wonder what would have happened if the Terminators kept being created for the films using practical effects rather than CGI. And then I wonder if the CGI technology is getting too advanced. And now I’m gonna go live in a Hobbit hole. Feel free to join me.
