This Month’s Highlights

The Terminator

When you get down to brass tacks, The Terminator is just a monster movie. Sure, it’s got a time-travel plot, but that’s just an excuse to give Arnold Schwarzenegger a creepy robot skeleton that makes him an unstoppable killing machine. With the time travel that is hindsight, it’s wild to think about how this damn good thriller became the convoluted sci-fi franchise that it is, wherein the world ends over and over, to diminishing returns. Maybe next year, when Deadpool director Tim Miller delivers his sequel/reboot that ignores everything after Judgment Day, we’ll get something that feels as good as this: a sci-fi–action movie that sets us on the run from something unstoppable, that suggests that doom may be inevitable, but so is hope. Leaving November 30.

Prancer

In the annals of holiday movie favorites, Prancer doesn’t get a whole lot of love — you’ve probably heard more people talking about how Die Hard is a Christmas movie. But you know what Die Hard doesn’t have? Abe Vigoda playing a kindly veterinarian, and Sam Elliot as a beleaguered dad whose daughter has found Prancer — yes, that Prancer — in the woods near their home, and is keeping him in the garage. At least when he’s not out causing general high jinks, like eating pie right off the dinner table, and bringing the whole town together. Watch Prancer  and kick off the holiday season! You’ve seen it at least 18 fewer times than Jingle All the Way. Leaving November 30.
