Some of the comments capture it nicely:

I wish we could ban 1984 just so that hack writers who barely understood Orwell's politics at all would stop making stupid hamfisted references to it in their own work.

Terminator + 1984 is the wrong analogy.

Cameron + Berg + Bay + Shamalayan would be more apt.

Translation: It will have lots of shiny sci-fi CGI, and it will have a moment where the characters almost try and address a human issue, and it might even move people with sub-par intelligence and then BAM! Action-CGI! It will also have robots and a hot chick.

In short, the Jihad is over. It ended just as SandRider predicted it would, not with a bang or even a whimper, by simple attrition.
