Terminator Blu-ray

Unread postby bradavon » 23 Dec 2011, 19:01

It looks like it's coming in May:

I'd be amazed if this was simply a re-release of the US BD. That's single layer, MPEG2, PCM 5.1 and no extras. Can you see anyone releasing a disc like that in 2012?

I read a post by Van Ling the other day saying the remastered version is still on hold until they can get Cameron and Scwarzenegger involved. This will just be a reissue.

A barebones or lacklustre release is more likely. The USA BD is so old and uses techniques they all dropped years ago. I still say a reissue is very unlikely.

Either way, it isn't going to be the Lowry restoration, so this disc is a pointless release.

But when is that coming? It could be years.

As long as the AV is acceptable I'll get it. I don't care about extras. A proper MPEG4 HD picture with Lossless 5.1 and I'm in.

Most 5.1 remixes are awful but I love the Terminator remix. It adds so much, mono couldn't handle. I doubt this will get mono.

Van Ling is well aware that pretty much everyone who loves the film hated the 5.1 remix with its awful foley effects. He is working on the new Blu-ray and he is pushing hard for the original mono track. Only complete fools like the 5.1 track.

On the US BD I expect it'll have both (maybe a new 7.1 mix how knows) but the UK BD will just get the remix.

In this case, :thumbs:. Guys it's Terminator, explosions and shit are the name of the game. This isn't some talky.

I doubt that. The average buyer doesn't even know what foley is. "Many fans hated it", is more accurate.

I'll wait and see - I hope the remaster is released sometime down the line!
What's holding up Arnie and Cameron being involved? Its great Van is pushing for the remaster though and trying to get the original Mono.
It should at least be offered as an option.

As discussed previously I'd be amazed if it's a re-issue. Whether it'll be the Special Edition everyone wants is another matter.

I'll just repeat what I said earlier "As long as the AV is acceptable I'll get it. I don't care about extras. A proper MPEG4 HD picture with Lossless 5.1 and I'm in.". There's no need for anyone repeat they disagree with me though.

No, you're being annoying as usual.

You can't repeat yourself and then say 'oh, but no one else should'.

Everytime you say all you want is 5.1, I'll reply with all I want is original mono.

Deal with it.

All I want is original mono. We are right, bradavon is wrong. Plain and simple.

And that's exactly why you should care about the mono track!

That's me told :D. Original Mono and 5.1 remix = Is that a fair compromise? I'd be as pissed if the 5.1 remix was dropped for the Mono. Thankfully it would never happen. I can't stand many 5.1 remixes (most HK studios, most anchor bay) but the Terminator one great. I don't care this time the foley is added because it enhances the movie.

If it were stereo it would be one thing but an action film like Terminator in Mono, WTF! Why is't it stereo anyway? The film's not that old.

The Terminator remix contains new foley so your point here is moot.

It was low budget. Many modest productions were released in mono until the end of the 80s. Stereo was still a bit of a studio luxury.

The problem is that the original mono on many HK discs is horrible quality and can go out of sync etc. so their remastered 5.1 tracks are actually preferable.
