Nice. I confirm the price of £8.99 when added to the cart.

Ordered and heat added. Many thanks.

But just to add - I think there might be a new version coming out in a few months when the new blu ray profiles are released (BD Live) later this year. There is a company working on an HD-DVD HDi release at the moment and I imagine the blu ray release will be given similar treatment. Please correct me if I am wrong.

I am sure I have read somewhere that a new German release is coming out that is far better than the current release. Not sure if it was Terminator or Terminator 2.

As far as I know the HD-DVD release you talk of is by Canal+ as they have distribution rights in France. Lionsgate are Blu-ray exclusive and it's the same video encode on both discs...

I think you probably read the same article as me. It was a German company at CES 2008 in the HD-DVD stalls.

Ahh right. So this Blu-ray version here, its the current dogs nuts then?

It's the best you can get for this film on blu ray at the moment. All I'm saying is that I imagine there will be a new release later this year on BD with more features due to the new format being launched (based on the fact that an equivalent HD-DVD HDi version is being produced at the moment). This is still a great price though.

It's $13.95 on Amazon.com but unfortunately there's a international shipping of around £4.

Pretty much all HD-DVDs are HDi so I wouldn'read too much into that, but I wouldn't be surprised if a Special-Feature laden version gets released at a later date...there are seemingly hundreds of editions of this film on DVD!

Thanks Remington that's a lot more useful than my pic! Yeah there are several cheap Lionsgate discs on Amazon.com at the moment - sadly shiping will cost you but I guess it's worth keeping an eye on Movietyme to see if they get the same cheap stock in - T2's price drop on occured earlier today...

Hi sorry am I missing something, but is this not regional A like the one i posted earlier and cannot be played on uk players?
also please see link.

yeah it's labelled region A but is infact region free...I even checked your own (useful thanks) link which confirms this disc plays fine in region B players!

doh yea I could'nt see it for looking cheers!!!

For the sake of provenance I thought I would post the link to an article for everybody's information engadget.com/200…gy/

playable on your ps3!

nice find

Thank goodness it's not on that HD-DVD format which is just shocking.

Excellent movie and a good price for BR!

It looks stunning on DVD format, so I could only imagine how good it looks in HD!

The HD formats are just as good as each other. Each with their pros and cons.

But on the other hand he might have (like me) sunk £400 into a PS3 and stuff, so therefore your opinion has to be that HDDVD is useless and BD (Surely it should be BR?) is great, even though its probably impossible to tell the difference unless you really really look for it.

Which is think is completely rational fanboyism, which is why I will conclude this by say HDDVD IS TEH RUBB1SH!!!!!1111!!!!ONE!

yeah tell 'em podge! but for all those Betamax fanboys another post on the board offering an HD-DVD player for £99!

I agree, blu rays are much tastier than HuD Doovde.

old fim not shot in HD, most dvds will upscale just as good, or at least if you have a good telly, such as a panny it will. Im still waiting for Apocolypto from this bunch from 3/12/07 !!!!

It was shot on film which is high resolution than HD. The HD transfer has more detail than a DVD. Stop spreading misinformation.

completely wrong, please stop spreading misinformation! T2 came out in the cinema, think about it - the original masters films have been recorded to are far higher resolution than what the consumer now knows as HD!

NO it was shot on 35mm Super !!!!!!!

"T2' have always suffered a few slings and arrows, namely due to James Cameron having shot the film in the controversial Super35 process, which allows for greater flexibility in terms of recomposing the image when transferring to video, but the tradeoff is decreased resolution and more noticeable film grain. Now, before any of you send me hate mail, I once went to a director's panel a few years back, with some of the leading filmmakers at the time heatedly discussing the merits of Super35 versus more low-grain, high-resolution processes such as 70mm and anamorphic. So it is not a question of whether film grain is a bad thing or not, simply that Super35 does have its tradeoffs and it is important to state that in any review of the film on home video. 'T2' has always looked a bit more grainy than perhaps the average action film of its type, but it is entirely indicative of its source. So short of removing all of the grain and other anomalies from the image by way of computer-assisted technology, that is the way the film is always going to look and always should look.

It is also worth nothing that this new transfer appears to be minted from the same HD master also used for the "Extreme Edition" DVD release from 2003, but not 1999's "Ultimate Edition." That latter version suffered from some noticeable edge enhancement and had a rather artificial look, but this transfer is much more smooth and natural, and virtually eliminates any noticeable halos and other artifacts.

Most aspects of this presentation are just as good as before -- great blacks, clean and consistent contrast (aside from the Linda Hamilton character's numerous post-apocalyptic flashbacks, which have an intentionally overblown, slightly hazy look to them) and a nearly-pristine print. Yes, there is still grain visible, and sometimes it can be more distracting than on the standard DVD, simply because HD's finer resolution makes it more apparent. Plus, I did notice the rare blemish"

Basicly your 1080p picture flaws you wouldnt see, hence my point it some times doesnt look as good as the standard dvd in places.

Nice find, ordered thanks.
My most watched movie of all time

hot link

You will be surprised by the amount of movies which were shot in High Res and really do look good in HD, I have Coming to America on Bluray which was released around the same time as I was born and some of the water effects and stuff on it look absolutely amazing.

Which is a film format and it certainly has enough resolution to justify a HD release. See Wikipedia for further info.

you can also get the prestige for £7.99 but not sure if it will work in B players movietyme.com/cat…203

I see most overcomplicating the issue here. If it can be displayed on a huge cinema screen (i.e. 99% of movies), then there is no reason it cannot be displayed in HD on a smaller home cinema screen as the res would have to have been high enough in the first instance to be displayed on a cinema screen).

Where does it comes from?
Did anyone actualy got it delivered already?
How long does it takes?

Exactly.

What your now saying is that the quality of the source media has some limitations and may be more obvious on a HD version.

That latter version suffered from some noticeable edge enhancement and had a rather artificial look, but this transfer is much more smooth and natural, and virtually eliminates any noticeable halos and other artifacts. The "Ultimate Edition" also appeared a bit noisy in spots, and some past reviews also complained of minor macroblocking during scenes with fast action. Thankfully, I did not find that a problem here -- perhaps that's why Lionsgate only included the theatrical cut on the disc, and few extras? Whatever the case, 'T2' delivers the kind of stable image that really positions the next-gen HD formats above over-the-air high-def broadcasts, which often can't handle fast-moving action and suffer from excessive pixelization

all i was saying is not all older films due blu ray or hd justice, I had read the review for T2, before I posted.

People need to be aware that just because it bluray doesnt indicate it will always look better.

Nuff said.
