The Terminator Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

In direct comparison, the image on this 1080p, AVC-encoded remastered Blu-ray of The Terminator offers a noticeable improvement over its 2006 predecessor. Detail, contrast and black levels are superior, providing an overall improvement in clarity and a greater sense of depth to the image. In part due to the increase in contrast, the colors are stronger, which will no doubt lead to charges that the disc has been treated to a "teal wash", a claim that seems to have become fashionable lately whenever the blues in a film are particularly strong. It should be noted that both of Cameron's Terminator films have always had a strong cyan bias, which is a trademark of DP Adam Greenberg and an element for which Cameron strongly praised the cinematographer. If this be teal, make the most of it.

The film's grain pattern is visible but fine and natural-looking. That was also the case in the 2006 disc, but here there is also a complete absence of video noise, and the superior AVC codec combined with the use of a BD-50 and a higher bitrate provides the equivalent of having a layer of grime wiped away. The Terminator has never looked better.


The Terminator Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

I remember a time, back in the days of laserdisc, when everyone complained about The Terminator's mono track, which had almost no bass extension and, obviously, nothing by way of surround activity. (Cameron said at the time that he chose to allocate most of his budget to visual effects and spend less on sound.) After the success of Terminator 2, everyone hoped Cameron would oversee a remix of the original film's soundtrack.

How times have changed. Now the chief complaint is the omission of the original soundtrack from current editions of The Terminator in favor of the remixed version that Cameron did eventually prepare. This remastered Blu-ray will not eliminate that complaint, as it features only the remixed soundtrack in lossless DTS-HD MA 5.1. The previous disc from 2006 offered the same track in PCM. The remixed track still sounds quite good, with deep bass extension, distinct split surround activity, clear and intelligible dialogue, and a musically pleasing reproduction of Brad Fiedel's score that is especially effective when the main theme switches from electronic instrumentals to piano for the Sarah/Reese love story. Those wishing for the original mono will have to make do, but as "making do" goes, this is hardly roughing it.
