Be advised- The first movie ran perfectly, but we got to T2, the disc refused to load up. I Googled the problem and found that we needed some sort of firmware update on our Blu-Ray player. I didn't even try to fix the problem via the internet. Instead we skipped ahead and watched T3 and T4, then later I put the T2 disc back in and managed to scroll through the menu and got a version to play. So, after some frustration we did finally get to see the movie. I ordered the firmware update DVD from Sony for $6, installed it a few days later, and now the player (and T2 disc) work fine.
If, like me, you love the Terminator movies, I'm certain that, T-2 frustrations aside, you'll love this box set. The packaging is beautiful and the classic movies (especially T1 in my opinion) are spectacular in Blu Ray from start to finish. I look forward to another Blu-Ray Terminator Marathon next year, and this time we'll watch all 4 movies in order!
"The Terminator Anthology" is everything an enthusiast of the franchise could ever want. You get the original classic in high-definition, the special edition and theatrical versions of "Terminator 2: Judgment Day," "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines," and "Terminator Salvation's" director's cut and theatrical version. They're all presented in stunning high-definition transfers that make you feel like you're seeing the movies for the first time all over again.
I enjoy all the films with Arnold Schwarzenegger about the same. In retrospect, "Terminator 2: Judgment Day" is a bit tedious at points and seems overlong and bloated. People couldn't get enough of "Liquid Metal Man" when the movie came out, so I can see how 137 minutes of different appearances by him kept an audience alert in 1991. It doesn't hold the same dazzle today that it did 21 years ago.
"Terminator Salvation" is an entertaining movie even without Schwarzenegger's presence throughout. You have Christian Bale, Sam Worthington, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Anton Yelchin adding star power to it. The surprise appearance of Arnie's CGI face gave fans something to smile nostalgically about.
There are plenty of special features for consumers to be excited about.Read more ›
All the gun shot sound effects have been altered. No longer are they the original BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM-BOOM but piff piff piff piff-piff. I am not a gun or violence fanatic but an original movie fanatic (perhaps nut) trying to make a point - the sound effects are all a part of the original film and they create the atmosphere of what made the original film what it was.
I had purchased this set awhile ago and sat down tonight looking forward to watching "The Terminator" as I remembered it. Not so with this set. If you're looking for the original version, I would pass on this blu-ray release unless you don't mind the edits. I hope the other versions of the Terminator films have not been altered, and that there is an Easter Egg opportunity to at least view all the deleted scenes together in Terminator 2 like in Terminator 2: Extreme Edition.
I also enjoyed the original Terminator behind the scenes special features. Like the fact the Arnold was originally cast to play Kyle Reese, and both Arnold and James Cameron had epiphanies that Arnold should be the Terminator instead.
If you are a fan of the series, there's plenty of extras on these discs and I am very happy with my purchase.
