 Temporal Anomalies in the Terminator Series
The Terminators sent back by the original SkyNet may have been created by someone else, but as Cyberdyne takes over that technology those in the next timeline are built by them and sent back at the same point in time to do the same tasks, but with a different memory of their constructions.
So he sends the original model Terminator back to protect himself, knowing that as a boy he would have saved her if he could have, and knowing that if he succeeded he would know that he saved his mother because he sent the Terminator back, and so would do so at the right time.
If she destroys the other company, the original terminator cannot come back, therefore Cyberdyne cannot have the pieces of the technology from the future, therefore neither company can create Skynet, war is averted, and time is restored to the original segment in which war is inevitable: the loop occurs.

 Amazon.com: The Terminator: DVD: Arnold Schwarzenegger   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The cleaned-up print of this DVD is a revelation, as is the digitally remastered Dolby 5.1 EX soundtrack: from the opening MGM lion's roar to the crunch of Arnold Schwarzenegger's boots and the pounding of Brad Fiedel's techno-industrial score, both picture and sound are of a quality that belie the movie's age.

 And You Call Yourself a Scientist! - The Terminator (1984)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
This premise, of course, forms the basis for The Terminator as a suspense film, but it is nevertheless rather disturbing, with mankind’s survival seemingly less dependent upon his courage, his tenacity and his intelligence, than it is upon a trick of fate.
What makes the Terminator so frightening is the automatic nature of its violence – the crushing of a hand, the slamming of a head, when a push to one side would do just as well.
One of the moments that always stays with me is the shot of the Terminator seeking its prey while driving through the city, its head moving slightly from side to side as if triangulating a signal, its face – not quite right.

The Terminator as a character was originally conceived to be more of an "everyman" figure, easily able to blend into common society.
Elements of this approach survive even in the final version with Reese's description of the Terminator as an "infiltration unit" as well as his admission that he wasn't able to identify the Terminator until it actually attempted to assassinate Sarah.
The scene at the Tech-Noir nightclub where both the Terminator and Reese stalk Sarah, the 80s techno music fades into Brad Fiedel's score and things move slower and slower until the only sound heard is the music and the actions of the two characters' guns…until all hell breaks loose.

 The Terminator (1984)
The Terminator (1984), the first of three science-fiction action-thriller films, has often been considered by most film reviewers to be a better-crafted film than its popular sequels, with fewer special-effects and pretention.
Stan Winston's special terminator and visual effects, created by Fantasy II Film Effects, vividly and effectively present a film-noirish environment and realistic stop-motion animation as the Terminator is transformed into a mechanical skeleton when his flesh and blood are stripped away in the course of his unstoppable pursuit.
Another time traveler to 1984 is Kyle Reese (Michael Biehn), a nuclear holocaust survivor who has been sent by Connor on an opposite quest to save innocent Sarah's life and ensure the conception and delivery of a son (who becomes a resistance leader and his future boss!).

 "The Terminator" / a review from Christian Spotlight on the Movies
In 2029, at the end of a war between humans and a network of AI computers, the computers send a Model T-101 Terminator Cyborg (Schwarzenegger) back to 1984 to change the future by killing Sarah Connor, the mother of the humans' leader, before he can be born.
This apocalyptic message begins to convert Sarah from a semi-airhead into the warrior that she's prophesied to be (and that she's blossomed into in the sequel).
The profanity is extreme; even the Terminator is programmed to use profanity so he can pass for a human (played for comic relief).
