"The future is not set. There is no fate but what we make for ourselves."The Terminator (1984) is the first film in the Terminator franchise. It was the second feature film directed by James Cameron.Two men emerge naked from two separate electrical storms in Los Angeles and quickly go out to find supplies. One stays low and out of sight to avoid the police and other authorities. The other picks up a phone book so he can find women named Sarah Connor...so he can kill them. When a young diner waitress also named Sarah Connor hears that two people with her name have been killed within a day, she begins to worry that the killer will come for her next.While the killer murders two people in Sarah's home in an effort to find her, Sarah hides in a nightclub; when the killer catches up with her there, she ends up rescued by the first individual, Kyle Reese, who explains the backstory to Sarah after escaping from the killer: in the near future, the United States government will create SkyNet, an artificial intelligence that will promptly turn against its masters and attempt to Kill All Humans in a cataclysmic event that will become known as Judgment Day. Mankind will eventually defeat SkyNet, but at the last minute, SkyNet will send a T-800 Model Terminator — an android assassin wrapped in human flesh to give it the appearance of a human — back in time to kill Sarah and prevent the birth of her son John (who will become the leader of the human resistance). John will respond by sending Reese into the past to protect John's mother and the timeline. After several dramatic battles and a Heroic Sacrifice from Reese, Sarah destroys the Terminator in an industrial factory — but not before Sarah sleeps with Reese and conceives John Connor (which means John causes his own birth and creates a Stable Time Loop).
