How they can continue to milk this franchise is unbelievable! Terminator 2 and 3 restored individual releases are next. Then, when the new terminator film rolls out there'll be another ultimate boxset! THEN, few years down the line they will release another ULTIMATER boxset with the new terminator film is released on bluray. Perhaps they will decide to make a new trilogy to continue on the legacy. I expect a new boxset to include each of those films -- one at a time, for a grand total of 4 boxsets before REDRAY starts the whole sequence over! Yay!

@Lino11

This is one I've seen alot. To put it simply, here's the breakdown of both sides of the argument: The side that says the picture quality is impressive...speaks for itself. The other side, the one complaining about the teal isn't complaining about the color timing - they believe that it pushes too far blue, like when they went and re-timed it they went too far in that direction (as far as aspects such as detail, I haven't seen much disagreement with the "impressive" side, its just that one side can let the teal thing go, the other can't).

This has been out in Australia for a little while. When I finally woke up and realised it was a different master than the one I'd imported from the UK I snapped it up. A side by side comparison reveals not only vastly improved PQ but all the opticals have been cleaned up too - It's amazing.
Interesting that the other movies in this series have been available in Australia for ages while this is the first time Terminator has been released here.
I've imported region friendly blu-rays from the UK, France or Germany before, only to have better Aussie versions come out within a year or so. It's started to make me hesitate before I order stuff off Amazon. Presently holding off on Last of the Mohicans and Serpico.
I'm use to double-dipping but doesn't mean I enjoy it!

I couldn't wait for the domestic release and imported the UK version. It looks great and is well worth upgrading for those who held out! As for the people who want mono, I probably wouldn't hold your breath on that, and I feel your pain, as it would be nice to have, but unless someone like Criterion gets the rights to distribute this, I wouldn't count on seeing it appear on blu any time soon!

Failing to see how these constitute "complete opposite opinions". Last I checked an obvious teal push and looking flat out amazing are not mutually exclusive things.

@Pinewoodpotter

Unfortunately, the US put out a re-release of the current, crappy one at about the same time the UK one came out, using the same cover art as the UK one. Considering that early releases are usually a couple of stores deciding to put out the stock they have early, and stores wouldn't even have the remastered version this early, I think its just the re-release.

The color change is obvious, but that's just it, is it a change or is it a restoration of what it "should" have looked like? I certainly do not recall the exact colors when I saw it in the theater and harsh, cool lighting is atmospheric for science fiction anyway.

I don't mean to rain on the parade of those excited to be getting what some argue is a better transfer here in the U.S. But this re-release follows the Digibook re-release and *still* lacks the supplements of the 2001 SE DVD such as the "Other Voices" documentary. It would be nice if Fox finally did a comprehensive, definitive release of this movie on BD--in a Digibook, including all legacy supplements.

Paid $50 (Conversion) for this at Amazon UK..... Next day, the US release is announced.

I'm glad others enjoyed the PQ. I'm sure the new avc encode doesn't disappoint. The audio should be the same as the LPCM release quality wise.

I'd bet my collection I've seen this film more than others & the mono track is worn out, tiresome, dull & lifeless since the remastered 5.1 track came out. Even if the option was there, choosing it makes no sense unless you want to hear average VHS sound. If that's the case then wait for Criterion to get their hands on this film. I'm sure they will eventually.

Best comment I read in here was hoping Criterion might someday do this, I think then we'd finally get a transfer that would satisfy everyone (except for perhaps the price tag, lol)

Good link to those comparisons. I see what you mean with the Teal push, but HOLY COW is there ever a huge leap in fine detail. If this is @ $10 I'll definitely pick it up. It would be nice to have original mono, but I really enjoyed the 5.1 PCM track on the Sony Terminator disc, possibly the only good thing about it.

No mono track - another marketing scheme to make some fans buy it again when another release comes out. Screw that my SE DVD is just fine who cares if it's remastered or not it wasn't a great looking film to begin with. Warner Bros also pulls this shit all the time, when the Kubrick DVD box set first came out the prints looked like they were run through a meat grinder. They re-released them next year because they knew suckers (fans) like me would buy them again.

There's no way it costs $50 dollars for the UK Blu-ray. I just bought it plus 2 deluxe edition CDs and it costs 50 dollars total for all three with normal shipping which only took about 10 days for me to get. Looking at my order it would have cost about 14 pounds just to get the Terminator Blu-ray which ends up being about 20 dollars.

Yeah deeppurpleman - who on Earth ever select PRIORITY shipping from Amazon for transatlantic purchases? Brutal> Regular shipping is only 3 pounds and rarely takes longer than a fortnight.

@Pinewoodpotter

Just came back from Best Buy thinking that maybe they had another exclusive with this...glad I didn't fall for it! The cover is the exact same.

I'm happy for the remaster, but I'm starting to wonder how many times we as consumers will be suffering from the same dilemma as the electronics gadget consumers of the continual-upgrade-syndrome :-/

Watching this (UK release) now. Looks fantastic. But no mono track.

@thepizzaguy

Because the new audio track has altered audio effects and they aren't the ORIGINAL as in the mono track.

And all of the people who bought that Terminator Anthology from Best Buy shouted, in unison, "Damn it!"

It's good The Terminator is finally being remastered. I've tentatively preordered my upgrade (better a.v. quality over the blu-ray book I currently own) in the I hope it's truly a solid master as pro-bassoonist has said. It would have been even nicer for the studio to have added a few more quality extras, but at this price I don't mind a straight port.

I bought the UK version on ebay and its an FANTASTIC!!! transfer, unless the US one includes something more I need not have to buy again.

I have the German steelbook (unopened), for the steelbook, not the movie. Without the original mono soundtrack I personally find no reason to buy this and will stick with the DVD. To thepizzaguy, why would I want a mono soundtrack? Because that's how it was made and it sounds better. To timcat4843, you must be deaf if you really think the surround mix is better than the mono audio track. It was obviously created by someone with little love for the movie and sounds fake.

Now on top of replacing my DVD collection i'm replacing BRs with BR upgrades. Frustrating to say the least. I'm sure i'll purchase down the line though if its a vast improvement. That last Terminator print was horrible.
