How do 'How to Train Your Dragon 2' and '22 Jump Street' measure up?
'Terminator 2: Judgment Day'
Director: James Cameron
Cast: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Edward Furlong, Linda Hamilton, Robert Patrick, Joe Morton
Why it's better: Some things are tough to argue against and one of them is the idea that James Cameron's "Terminator 2: Judgment Day" was a huge leap from the 1984 original film. Expanding on the sci-fi ideas that only highlighted that action thriller, he presented the full scope of his vision for this franchise, one where there is "no fate but what we make." The effects were dazzling, the storytelling was expert and the finale was emotional. They'd have done well to leave it here.
