    Gak!! Why in the world wouldn't they re-mix the sound? This film has one of the best musical scores EVER, in my opinion. There is such huge potential for wonderful, directional sound effects also.

    Completely bummed to discover this.... and I *was* going to purchase.

    Yes, the mono version is quite lacking. It certainly doesn't match the quality of the video transfer.

    Could it be that they no longer have the audio stems from the production to enable a 5.1 remix? More than likely that's the case. There are a few foreign editions with "5.1", but from what I'm told it's mostly mono, or sound like someone just making the same sound come out of a different speaker (aka, they took the mono and started pushing buttons)

    What you can do with a remix depends on whether or not you have the original stems available. With Terminator they did, I just wish there weren't those horrible sound FX replacements. When Ahnuld kills Sarah #1 I always flip over to the mono track just so I won't have ot listen to that horrible new sound
