Unca Harlan is in fine form, but I gotta be honest - and don't tell him I said so! - I only saw a vague connection with Terminator. I mean, where was the killer robot? The Sarah Connor? The time-travel paradox? I suppose watching this may have triggered other scenarios in Cameron's imagination -"hey! Forget the linguist, let's focus on the other solider!" - but is that plagerism? I guess it's not for me to decide. . .
My understanding is that it was Cameron who made a big deal in an interview about "ripping off'' Soldier and Demon for the Terminator. HE couldn't really be expected to just sit back while Cameron waved it in his face. I think if stupid Cameron had kept his mouth shut about it nothing would have come of it.
Of course those of you who know HE might have access to some info I wouldn't but that was my impression of the matter.
