Terminator: Salvation is a 2009 science fiction film directed by McG. It is the fourth film in the Terminator franchise and stars Christian Bale as John Connor and Sam Worthington as Marcus Wright. The story follows Wright as, after receiving a lethal injection, awakens to find the world around him has been destroyed by war, and upon rescuing a trapped soldier (Moon Bloodgood) and meeting with a young man named Kyle Reese (Anton Yelchin) that his existence may have darker implications than he first thought.
The One Man Band released its MP3 riff of this film on May 18th, 2010. It is the 7th in that series.
- One Man Band notes on the making of the project: "Ugh. I had picked the wrong project to attempt to do the Stupend-O process on for its sophomore effort. Sticking with my committment to riff all the different versions of the movie, I had to try and sync up dialogue with the PG-13 Rated Theatrical Cut and the R Rated Director's Cut, and since I didn't want to limit my audience that might not care for the Stupend-O edition, have two more that didn't have the skits in it. Combine with syncing up for PAL audiences with the DVD edition of each (the Blu-ray cut didn't need to have a PAL version), that's a grand total of six different riff tracks...and thanks to a missed issue during the DVD line-up phase, I missed a DVD transition that threw off the DVD edition by two seconds after a certain point. I fixed the issue, but this project was an absolute mess to edit. It was also subject to the 'Simpsons Did It' phenomenon where I was in the midst of editing when Rifftrax released their edition (not the last time this would happen), and sales for this one were pretty much abysmal. On the other hand, I'm actually very proud of the jokes and the skits themselves, despite it all. I've frequently referred to the events of the skits in this (where multiple versions of myself come back through time and keep telling me contradictory ways of approaching the future, leading to hundreds of me all talking at once before my character...disposes of them) in later tracks, and I love the way the Christian Bale rant was able to be taken completely and utterly out of context for a fun skit. In other words, I'm not happy with the process of how the riff was made, but I certainly don't regret doing it. I haven't done much Stupend-O since for this very reason, but I do think the process has merit, if I can ever find another movie that it's worth doing to."
