The Terminator is a great science fiction film, well acted and produced. But it’s not an “It’s a Wonderful Death” film. Kyle does die at the end, and we see the surprise that the picture of Sarah which Kyle pines over is one in which she’s thinking about him. But nobody wishes they had died. This is another film I’ve put on the list to fill it out with movies that do not fit the “It’s a Wonderful Death” mode, so that I do not spoil the film for you.
