Kyle Guthrie

A Brief History of Tech-Noir

Douglas Adams once said "There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable." Well, anyone who has watched all five Terminator films knows this happened about nine times. The Terminator franchise is one of the best known works of fiction about time travel and like all time travel movies has it's own particular set of rules that both make and don't make sense at the same time. Self professed Terminator expert Kyle "Skunk" Guthrie will present a dissertation on those rules and how it all makes sense, with the newest film Terminator Genisys serving as the solution that makes his hypothesis a theory. Beware: spoilers will be discussed!
