So I can get Terminator, and T2 on Blu-Ray and then get T3 on HD-DVD, dumb. Why did they have to change production companies, why did Carolco have to die and then be annexed by Time Warner, why, why, why?

This is out next week? Oh my, gonna have to pick me up one. Even with no TrueHD it should still be one heck of an A/V HD ride.

I'll be picking this one up next week for sure. A TrueHD track would have been nice though.

While it will be great to have T3 on Bluray as well. The only question I have is what audio options will the Bluray version have over the HD-DVD version. I own this movie on SD-DVD which has a standard DD track. So I am not sure I want to rush out and buy T3 with a Dolby Digital Plus track. I dont see any reason to believe that audio track will be any better than the standard DD track on SD-DVD. Now if it at least had a Dolby True HD track I might have to buy the HD version. Now I am willing to bet that T3 will look stunning in HD but without a lossless surround track I have to decide if it would not be better to hold out for the Bluray version of T3 instead.

So many movies to buy and not enough cash

Yes, I got an email but misread part of it. Will ship Sept. 27. Not arrive then. Sorry. Looks like they are a bit delayed with T3...

I think it is sad that they croped that scene.


God forbid if they showed alittle breast shot in a rated R movie. As we all know they wouldn't dream of having sex, nudity and gore in a rated R movie. To me this screams of political correctness and the studio not having the guts to keep that scene the way it should have been. Also god forbid children not being able to watch Terminator 3 because of a tit shot. Children see violence and people comiting suicide on live news and as soon as a breast is involved all hell breaks loose. I bet thats why the studio croped that scene.

While I would have prefered it to have shown alittle t/a. I still dont' see that as a reason not to purchase the HD version of the movie. I also would have wanted to see a lossless audio track like Dolby True HD or DTS-HD for this HD release.

Tony, that's when my copy of T3 (and Land of the Dead) is supposed to ship, too. I didn't order until today, though.

It would have been nice to have the True HD track, but after the five or ten minutes I heard when I was checking the disc out last night, the title is just fine without it.
