The Terminator Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Presented in 1.85:1 high definition 1080p, I must admit that I was not vastly impressed with the image found on this Blu-ray disc. Granted, the film is more than twenty years old, but this particular print used for the transfer was in less than ideal condition. There were severe and clearly discernible instances of scratches and speckles all over the place. There is a great deal more clarity here than on previous editions, however, so much so that many of the phony looking special effects look even phonier in high definition. Black levels are not entirely solid, bordering on dark gray at times, but I've seen much worse on many newer titles (such as in Broken Arrow). Overall the image quality is sufficient. It's certainly better than its recent DVD counterparts, but not overwhelmingly so. I don't think The Terminator will ever look much better than it does here. It's also the best the film has ever looked and these two factors make this image quality score better than it probably should.


The Terminator Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

You haven't heard The Terminator until you have heard it in uncompressed PCM 5.1 sound. I've seen this movie more times than I can remember and it was like hearing it for the very first time. High definition sound is every bit as good as high definition imagery and believe me, the difference is clear and discernible to even the average listener with a decent setup. This track is active and loud. Surrounds are in play throughout. Dialogue can be a little muffled under the loud and rambunctious effects. Sometimes it does sound a bit forced, but it's a very well done remix overall. Rumbling bass is ever present in action shots. I guess the biggest drawback would be the music emanating from the rear channels, but otherwise this is a fabulous remix of the original monaural track. The war sequences set in the future literally put you in the middle of the action. I was most impressed with this mix. The overall score receives minus half a point for the mix being too aggressive at times with the music coming from the rear speakers, and it also gets knocked half a point for the lack of the inclusion of the original mono track for the purists out there who want both (myself included). This is the type of movie that lends itself well to a remix, unlike some other recent films I have reviewed that included a mono-only track, and I'm not disappointed with it. I just would like to have both this and the original mono mix available to me.
