This review refers to the BLU-RAY edition ONLY and NOT to the DVD edition.

Well having The Terminitor series on DVD and loving them and having recently upgraded to a blu-ray player I decided to take the plunge and upgrade my collection to high definition blu-ray format.

Boy, what a mistake that was.

Picture quality is AWFUL - well awful for blu-ray anyway. They've taken the same standard definition source as the DVD and upscaled it for blu-ray - but it's still standard definition. Only the menu is in High Definition, the movie is not. I tested my DVD version upscaled against the blu-ray edition and found them identical - if anything the DVD came out slightly on top.

It also only contains 2 extras - the special effects making of and the retrospective - nothing else. My DVD edition contains over a dozen extras.

My verdict if you're thinking of buying The Terminator in blu-ray and you have an upscaling DVD/BD player - forget it. Stick with the DVD version instead, picture is the same and it has more extras. It's cheaper too.

Maybe one day this wonderful movie will receive the treatment it deserves and be digitally remastered and have it's frames scanned with a high definition camera - but until then sit on your DVD's and wait.

This is the fourth release of this film on blu-ray already. There is the 2006 original, a 2009 lenticular cover version, a 2010 blu-ray/DVD combo and now this 2011 blu-ray book. While I won't debate the merits of the film itself, MGM is currently in the middle of bankruptcy proceedings and I assume this is the primary reason for this new release. Unfortunately, they haven't bothered upgrading the original MPEG-2/LPCM 2006 mastering of the film itself; all the versions contain identical disc content. If you don't already own this film and want a fancy book style package for a 5 year old blu-ray master, go ahead and pick this up. Otherwise, you're better off finding a less expensive older version.

Format: DVD
The original "Terminator" is arguably the greatest sci-fi/action film ever, and the Special Edition DVD finally does this classic film justice. Many people look at the sequel as the better of the two, but remember, Cameron was given a huge budget for T2. He was forced to film "The Terminator" for less than $6 million. If you're like me, you could write enough about this movie to fill an encyclopedia, but I'll try to give just a breif plot description for those who have yet to see it.
In the future, SkyNET, the supercomputer in control of all military power, decides that humans must be destroyed and begins a massive nuclear war that destroys most of the population. The survivors form a resistance agains the computer and its mechanical army, and eventually defeat it, thanks to their leader John Connor. In a final effort to win, the computer sends a Terminator back in time to kill John's mother, Sarah, before he is born. The humans send back a lone soilder, Kyle Reese, to protect Sarah from the seemingly unstoppable cyborg.
When the movie was originally filmed, the soundtrack was recorded in mono, which sounded horrible on the original DVD release of the Terminator. But here you can find a newly recorded soundtrack, with the original soundtrack remixed along with new gun and explosion sound effects. Most of the new sounds are very cool (esp. the HK entrance in the first scene), and the new gun effects are good for the most part. Only in a few instances are the new sounds a little weak. Fortunately the DVD also sports the original mono soundtrack for when you want to watch the original verion.
Next to the film itself, the best part of this DVD is the Special Features, most of which were unavailable before.

Another Terminator sequel is about to be released in Cinemas in July this year
i'm a Huge Terminator fan but in my opinion the franchise has run itself into the Ground
the last sequel was Terminator salvation, i wasn't impressed with the screenplay or the Director
so Terminator salvation ended the sequels with me
the first 2 are the best of course, the 3rd sequel is tolerable and then the 4th sequel which i've only seen once
i didn't think much of it it's a matter of opinion really

anyway MGM have decided to reissue the original Terminator movie again
only because there's another sequel coming out
so what's different this time around, nothing absolutely nothing
the picture quality & sound quality are exactly the same as the 2013 remastered edition
which i must say has been given an amazing High Definition transfer in 1:85:1 widescreen, no Grain or Dirt in the picture quality
plus the texture/colour has been corrected
all the extras from the very old dvd have been carried over, except for Other voices Documentary
which had interviews with Gal anne Hurd, Stan winston, music composer Brad fiedel, James cameron
Arnold schwarzenegger, plus interviews with some of the special visual effects team
i think the Other voices Doco is much better than the Terminator retrospect featurette with only Arnold & James
for some stupid reason MGM did not bother to carry over the Other voices Doco
Disgusting effort really
back to this new 2015 reissue
the special features are exactly the same as the 2013 remastered blu-ray
no new extras, no new sound mix like a 6.1 or 7.1 Master audio mix, just the same 5.
