    On the T2 "Ultimate" Edition, how can I access the 156 minute Extended version? Also, how do I go about accessing the restored, 139 minute Theatrical version (Not the WMP HD PC version) on the newer "Extreme" Artisan release?

    This is driving me up the wall.

    Hey, I wouldn't mind knowing how to access the extended version, I've had the DVD for a while now & I still can't figure it out!

    What's the third version of the movie then?

    On the "Ultimate Edition", you can select Title 2 on your remote, and it'll pick up the Extended Special Edition. The alternate ending is INSANE. It shows Sarah Connor as a grandmother, with John's daughter on a playground, with a voice over, as if Judgment Day never happened.

    Also, on the "Extreme Edition", the 2003 DVD release, you can access the HD Thetrical Version of T2 by arrowing over to the right a couple of times from one of the Bonus Menu's. Forgot which, sorry, I did it last night, and it worked.

    I initially bought the old 2 disc "Ultimate" Edition to have the Theatrical edition on DVD, once I found that that it wasn't included on the "Extreme" edition. Now, I've got T2 on 2 DVD sets, 5 times over...and I couldn't be happier, because I was able to score both, both with the metal slip cases, fo $5.99 a piece. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Well, it's good to have both releases. I only paid $20 to have both the Ultimate and Extreme editions. The Ultimate Edition is needed for the supplements, while the Extreme Edition is one of the most perfect video images I've seen. Also, the EE's commentary, interactive mode, and text annotation are terrific. Watching T2 with the audio commentary and interactive mode is fun. [​IMG]

    i never liked the extras on the ue. the 3 30 min docs, are all promotional crapolla, and everything else is reading material that will take you forever to get through (with a few video clips here and there.

    This is weird. I have the Ultimate Edition, and never knew about the alternate ending for the extended cut. I just tried it in both my computer and my DVD player, and I don't get the Roman numerals mentioned above. And when I try to access it by "title," I get an invalid command message.

    I use to have the Metal T2 ultimate set, it was my first DVD. [​IMG]

    However, later on I got rid of it for the cardboard slipcase version of Ultimate T2.

    WHY? It's 2 seperate discs, rather than a double-sided disc which the metal version is. I don't like DS discs, plus mine was really scratchy...

    How do you like that! I never new about the theatrical cut being available on the Extreme dvd edition!

    Thanks, fella's, that's always bothered me that it wasn't included and it was there the whole time LOL!

    Ah, the wonder that is easter egg's, sometimes they reveal true treasures. [​IMG]

    Ah, you lucked into getting the wrong metal case then. Poor sap. I lucked into the two disc version of the UE in the metal case. [​IMG]

    I have the double sided one in the metal case but couldn't care less, i'm pretty much finished with all of the content on side two anyway, nothing more to see or read, so it hardly matters. [​IMG]

    I guess "T2" is the forefather of the double dip! Ultimate: Metal case, 2 sided. Metal case, 2 disc. Cardboard slip, 2 disc. Extreme: Metal case, 2 disc. Cardboard slip, 2 disc.

    I leave out any of the incarnations? :b

    Does that really qualify as a double-dip? I thought that originally, there was an option to have the DVD-18 or the 2x DVD-9 editions, both in a metal slipcover. Once the metal cases were exhausted, there were cardboard slipcovers.

    Same thing happened with the Extreme Edition. I don't see why this would be a double-dip, with only packaging changing (at least for each edition, not the two releases).

    T2: UE was originally supposed to be on DVD-18, but due to some technical issues/time constraints (I can't remember exactly) before release, Artisan turned it into a 2-disc set.
