Eh, give it another month or so, closer to the end of the year. We can make it an annual thing, like a birthday party for the AVS Blu-ray forum.. lol.

Perhaps we should get it going on the 4K forum? If we ever get one, that is...

Man it is just freaking weird that a director could put such astonishing, back-breaking work - years of it - into movie projects, endlessly executing the most ninor details to perfection, and then just not give a damn about how it ends up preserved for home video, letting it languish.

I can't get into Cameron's head-space on this issue.

Not to mention how poor Terminator 2 looks on Blu-ray. Old, processed looking transfer (no matter what region it's from as they all stem from the same scan done over a decade ago).

For those with keen eyes, you may have noticed The Abyss has been in the rotation on some of the Premium Movie channels.
It has never, ever looked better.
I suspect this is the new JC transfer....meaning we are not far off from the BD.

I'll take a wild guess and say that The Abyss and/or True Lies will come out next year, when Avatar 2 will be released in theaters...

Should make for a good Blu-Ray.......some day.

Maybe he has been waiting for 4k and HDR? Maybe 8k. 4k is soooooo 2014.

...8 years between the two films...hmm it better be good otherwise people won't care anymore! Which reminds me that the first film stands on its own after all, maybe JC should have gone with an original story for his next film. It's not like Fox doesn't trust him.

I just receiver True Lies last week!

Haha-on linear tape to boot. I does look really good though.
Seriously though, I have been looking for a sealed copy for a while now - to complete my DTh collection. I just need Speed & Scorpion King.

Oh wow, nice! I have a rip of D-Theater True Lies. Better than the DVD, but every time I watch it, I long for the Blu-ray.

The proper setting for sharpness is always0.
Also my Oppo BDP-103D is region free.
That makes me awesome.
