    Terminator 1 & 2

    That's what I meant on both posts Dave, I always hold you opinion very high and in this case I'd like to know if you have the European disc for comparison, as it's much better compressed and avoids many of the problems found on previous the US release.

    Terminator 1 & 2

    Personaly, I'd never go to Peter M Bracke for a take on any disc as I can't recall the last time I saw an accurate review from him. But that's just my opinion.

    Terminator 1 & 2

    OK, I've seen the US Skynet Edition and all I have to say is: just what happened here? It's insanely DNRed, clearly even worse than the previous Lionsgate Edition and it's a long shot form the European/Japanese versions. It's terrible like some of the new Star Trek editions. Van Ling, can you...

    Grindhouse DVD's

    Well, Weinstein is more like a no show for over 6 months now. The talks are they are going BD as well. Anyway, the company that distributes Planet Terror here in Brazil is a BD exclusive. So, eventually we'll be getting a BD version. In other territories, it's distributed by Buena Vista...

    What a waste Death Proof was. Planet Terror on the other hand absolutely rocked, can barely wait for the BD.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Halloween -- in BD

    I'm 100% with David Ruiz and Jeff Adkins regarding original soundtracks. Why is it so hard for studios to include the original (mono or stereo) tracks for older films in lossless fashion. It should be nothing considering Blu-ray disc space and bandwith. I can't understand their...

    Blu-ray Review HTF Blu-ray Review: Halloween (1978)

    I'm 100% here with Vincent P and Don May. And I believe the original tracks (stereo or mono) should always be presented on HD discs in lossless fashion alongside whatever remix studios wanna throw in there to please the crowds. As it's been said, I'm all for technology, but it has nothing...

    HTF HD DVD Review: Out For Justice

    Very nice reveiew, the most well worded review for the film itselft I're read so far. Too bad Warner keeps leaving lossless audio behind on catalog titles, and the week video transfer

    I'm 100% with David and Ben. Outstanding posts guys. I think every decent web reviewer should take a hold of this comments. IMO, that's how proper reviews are done

And not to hijack this thread, but another very important issue has come up for us movies aficcionados: the inclusion of the theatrical cut via seamless branching whenever extended or alternate cuts are being presented on Sony BDs. Please check out...

    Call to Warner Brothers: Give us Dolby TrueHD on Blu-ray

    I'm voting with my wallet too. I haven't bought a single titles without lossless audio, no matter how much I want the movie (ohhh that Mission Impossible box set got me scratching myself, but I refused to purchase it)

    Sony to start using Dolby True HD on Blu-ray...

    That's right Grant. Coincidence or not, I used this very example in the discussion with paidgeek. Let's until he gets back with his comments.
