The Terminator New Release - Page 3

post #61 of 640
If the T1 remix at least paid attention to the original track, then I could perhaps stomach it. But, as Matt said, it's missing music, and in the process of completely replacing the foley and effects they've missed out some effects too. There's this eerie sort of scraping sound that plays over the main title sequence, that's gone. Reese racking his shotgun as he awakes from his nightmare is virtually imperceptible, and when the Terminator sprays that room in the copshop with his automatic rifle one of the plods gets off a shotgun blast that no longer has a sound effect attached to it!

As for the '15' rating over here, it was re-certified at '15' for the SE DVD released in 2001, so I don't know where this '18' Blu-ray rating has come from. I also reckon it's a placeholder unless, as others have said, the extras have bumped it up.

What is a 1.5 track? Seems like a typo to me.
post #64 of 640
1.5 might mean mono track with sub.
post #65 of 640
Mono track with 5 discrete sub channels or simply a typo.wink.gif

At least the remix wasn't as bad as the one Universal did for Spielberg's "Duel." They completely left off the truck's dinosaur roar sound effect when it plunges into the ravine.

That is how I took it, at least we have the new transfer confirmed

I hope they have replaced the .45 gun sound....I really don't like the one on the DVD "remastered" version.

That would be "1.1".
If it's a "typo" it's probably "5.1".

Back-in-the-day Lowry could do no wrong (even when they erased rain).
Now days you've got the 'Cameron (the director) Is Always Right' crowd.
It's a case of two rights make a wrong! biggrin.gif

Specifically, the Citizen Kane DVD, not the Blu-ray. It was one of the very first titles they worked on, and even Lowry admit that they blew it.

At least they didn't erase paratroopers and airplanes....

Whoever copied the text from bluray-disc.de to Google Translate did not bother to correct the mistake (or any of the grammatical non-sense). Google Translate simly though it was a date and switched it from European format to US format. You can see the original (German) text here: http://www.bluray-disc.de/blu-ray-news/filme/33636-terminator-digital-restauriert-mit-deutschem-hd-sound-und-im-steelbook-auf-blu-ray-disc

Also the 2004 Star Wars DVDs, those were a mess.

It's a special mix made just for bass-lovers. :-)

It doesn't really matter.
The BD shows so much grain that looks like rain that it has a negligible overall effect on the presentation.
Heck, it often looks like it's raining indoors...biggrin.gif

Yeah if only Cane looked like To Dnr a Mockingbird then it would be fine.

They could combine all kinds of techniques and we could get things like:

"Citizen Patton"...

...or "Out of Xanadu"

...or "Predibud"
post #81 of 640
And of course Orange & Tealing Cane would be best.

At this point, if Terminator comes out with that same sh*tty remix I will be forced to make my own BluRay by combining it with the laserdisc's robust PCM mono sound. It'll be a royal pain, but worth the effort.

Dear Lord that's heinous! I'm really glad I've never owned Terminator or T2 since the LaserDisc days, since all of these sound effects changes would just grate on me incessantly. I can't imagine they would keep using those botched changes in a definitive Blu-ray edition, but maybe I'm just being optimistic.
post #85 of 640
What's wrong with the Terminator 2 soundtrack?
post #86 of 640
Nothing. Unless you happened to see it in 70mm CDS in 1991 or whatever. I first saw it on VHS, many times over, and the subsequent SE LD/DVD/Blu-ray releases all sound like the T2 I know (though Studio Canal's 7.1 remix and derivations thereof are shite). So I'm all right, jack.

Even tho there was a remix for near field HT on the SE laserdisc onwards? they all sound exactly the same? Cameron must have some placebo on the go from Rydstrom then
post #88 of 640
I didn't say that they sounded exactly the same. I don't have total recall like so many folks on here claim to do when remembering what they saw/heard 20 years ago. I said that every home version I've ever seen (aside from the Studio Canal remix) sounds like the T2 I know. This is not the case with The Terminator, for which I MUST have the mono audio.

I have the Studio Canal HD DVD, which has a 5.1 track. I don't recall anything about it sounding much different than any other 5.1 mix for the movie I've seen. Does the SC Blu-ray have a different mix, and if so, what's wrong with that one?
