This version isnt that much better than the dvd version. Not really worth the money. Get the skynet version.

It's in their system as £14.99 do they deduct £9.99 manually :thumbsup:

yes they would scan a barcode to reduce it to the £4.99 price

agree with that. Not a sniff of extras on the disk. If you just want the movie (which is fair enough) then Ok but no commontary, trailers, making of etc... :\

Hot deal though!

ladies and gents,

officially this title is part of our "2 for 22" offer (14.98 each).

to support the release of terminator salvation, the DVD (2.99) and BLU RAY (4.99) are being offered at the prices in the brackets (what we refer to as the "perfect partners" scheme)

the general rule is that the price is available when you rent or buy ANYTHING (i recommend a pack of ROLOs as they are currently down to 30p in all blockbusters ;) )

there is some reason why the prices werent simply reduced to 2.99 and 4.99 but i cant remember what it is off the top of my head, and you'll be hard pushed to find a blockbuster that wont be happy to sell you one on its own, but if you read the stickers on the box, they do state "rent or buy anything".

bargain for a great film in my opinion, i bought one :)

I have to agree with deathtrap, this version is probably one of the worst blu-rays in terms of quality I've watched. But hey...5 quid.
#15
I'd like to also add that this version DOES NOT have any subtitles in English.

For someone like myself who is hard of hearing this was a major let down.

i suppose its worth a fiva just to say "i've got t2 on blu ray".

Only if you like the film, last time it was on TV I thought to myself, my god has this fim dated badly. Great price if you like it though. One I avoided on HD DVD and I sure am going to do the same for Blu Ray.

I find it really cheesy. The 3rd film was better imo and that's saying something for many. Seeing new one tomorrow so may revise, but T2 was the worst for me.

Why do people think becuase it's "Blueray" it automatically means it's in hi def?

This film was not filmed in HD, so the quality of this is going to be no better than the DVD version. Obvious really...

still good price for a good film. I watched Salvation last night as it goes - that is preoper hi def and it was amaziing

Movies are filmed in higher quality than HD so really that's not an excuse for poor quality blu-rays.

This isn't right. It would have been filmed on 35mm which would look fantastic on HD, unless it was a poor transfer. Look at DVDBeaver.com and see how well 35mm fares over DVD when given a good transfer. Dambusters is a good example. If it looked good in the cinema it would probably look good in HD.

Im gonna repeat whats been said because you might not have understood...

Most films use 35mm film which has much higher definition than what bluray uses currently.

Thats why you get films such as The Wizard of Oz in HD which look great. Its down to lazy publishers (or who ever controls the quality of the transfers) who want to push the films out and then remaster them later.

T2 was shot in Super35, and because it's a film-based, rather than digital based source, it means it can be shown at a much higher quality than HD.

So if it looks bad, it's a poor transfer, as suggested above. Nothing to do with its age or that it's "obvious" that it wasn't shot higher than DVD quality (when DVD didn't even exist at the time of shooting - so it must be VHS quality, surely?).

One of the first Blu Ray's I bought and while it's not up there with the Dark Knights and 2001's of the world I thought it was a decent enough transfer.

Well worth a fiver

I agree, it's a big improvement over the DVD. It didn't blow me away but I would have no hesitation at a fiver........... In fact I didn't hesitate at £7.99 when I bought it. :thumbsup:

if you thought that upscaled dvd version looked good, wait until you see the proper remastered version.
#28
I bought one from the Falkirk store also, cracking deal for a great film. Not really bothered about the extras, as if you have not seen enough extras surrounding this film by now I dont think you ever will :-)
#29
I found out last night that some publishers are releasing slightly inferior transfers so they can sell the new improved versions in years to come. Imo a poor practice that will hurt bluray in the long run. Shameful.
#30

That is a problem, but helps publishers extend revenue posibilities. How many Remastered DVD versions of different films have there been over the years?!

I have seen many Blu Rays that look half hearted in the transfer stakes, and you right it is Shameful.

In saying that I really believe that T2 is not a bad transfer and is much superior to the DVD version.

This is still worth £5 of any ones money.

Few copies left in Ipswich - Woodbridge Road store
#33
I saw it today in the Manchester store, the sticker said £5 when purchased with any DVD or DVD rental otherwise £14.99 so as I understood it you couldn't even rent a game and get it at that price. I had a look at the £3 and £4 DVDs for sale but none of them appealed to me and I was going to chance it but I have had arguments with them in there before over their sticker pricing policy.

Stargate being a prime example....new version coming out early 2010

There is a thread below which grades Blu-ray releases so you can decide if its worth purchasing them or waiting for an improved version. I think the Skynet Edition is better but of course more readies!

http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1168342

Anyway the film goes without saying...if you don't already own this then buy it!

I always joke about the sequels (after this one) to my brother as we are both fans of these films...so here's one conversation I had (based on my thoughts while cooking dinner)

Terminator 3: Rise Of The Vacuum Cleaners...dialogue based on T2:
'the main man responsible is James Dyson'
'why him?'
'in three years he creates a revolutionary new type of vacuum cleaner'
...que shots of Cyclone Systems, Sarah Connor writing NO BAG into the wooden table, the T-1000 melting and reverting to an earlier form of a prototype Dyson, a VAX, a Dustbuster and finally a Henry hoover :w00t: :roll:

I'll get me coat!
