This is so long overdue. Reviews in the UK are great.

20th Century Fox Home Entertainment has officially announced that it will release director James Cameron's classic action film The Terminator (1984), starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton and Michael Biehn. Recently remastered, the film will be available for purchase on February 19th.

I think this may be another controversial release as screenshots of the new master show a rather intense teal bias in the color timing. And it's hard to argue that it's not far cooler and greener than any version we've seen before.

The good news is that screenshots also show A TON more detail than the previous Blu-Ray. Detail a lot of us thought might be impossible given the low-budget nature of the original film elements.

I'm hoping the dreaded "green tint" won't be as noticeable without a direct comparison right next to it. I've pre-ordered mine.

And who knows? The screenshots could be totally inaccurate. It wouldn't be the first time.

If it is the same release as the british blu ray, why not just buy the british blu ray now? It is region free.

I also hope this version has the original mono track as well. If that is included, I will definitely buy it and sell my old blu-ray. I know it sounds weird, but I watched that movie more times than can be counted back in eighties (it was also the first R-Rated movie I snuck into). The 5.1 is not a re-mix/remaster, the completely re-did the sound effects and I can hear subtle differences in key scenes.

british version does not have the mono track. so this most likely will not have it either. i also like the original sound design way better. they did a good job with surround sounds, but completely missed the mark with gunshots etc. original has way more punch, and grittier feel.

The PQ on the UK BD is amazing, so much detail. It makes the film even better!

Neither did the Bond 50 set in the UK, but the US did. Let's stay optimistic and hope that we do. Lossless if possible, if not I'll have to sync my Laserdisc mono track to the new version.

I knew that "The Terminator" would be re-issued, and with a better remastering effort. I knew this because the last known re-issue of "The Terminator" on DVD had many extras. Like additional documentaries and the making of the film. The first issued Blu-Ray of the film excluded all that extra material so you will be more anxious to buy the film again, later, that will include all those already existing extras.

I believe this was their plan to double dip the consumer to resell the movie again, on Blu-Ray.

You gotta ask yourself. "How many times have I bought this same movie over the years?" (including VHS, Beta, Laserdisc, DVD, BD, etc.)

It's ridiculous how they do this to us. They give a little on the first sale, then improve on it just a little more, then re-sell it again. And then again. Three to five years from now, you will probably be buying "The Terminator" yet again, because they will do something more for it to make your current copy inferior to it. They will always add a little something to a re-issue to make you want to buy it again.
