Fantastic job on the colors and the original soundmix of the first Terminator. Haven't heard it in more than a decade, great. Brings back memories.

Finally something much better to put beside my original copy^^

Thx TeamBlu, especially DJ :)

All I can say is WOW and Thank You.

The Terminator.

Looks amazing! The colour and detail on display here are the best Ive ever seen T1 look.

It was so good hearing the original audio mix, Im not a fan of the new 5.1 SFX changes so this was perfect. (Just to let you know my amp would not decode the 1.0 track properly, so watched it with the 2.0 mix.)

Ive not had a chance to watch the 'Making Off' yet but it quality looks good. I think it's the same version on 'Men Of Action' I had it on (U.K) VHS back in the day. The International Trailer was great also.

Menu and presentation were very professional and easy to negotiate around, everything seemed to work fluently.

Terminator 2

This was the big surprise for me, ive not seen it look better! considering the material you have to work this is magic. Colour, detail and compression were spot on.

What can I say, the CDS mix! Left me Pumped. Im sure theres a reason they messed with it (for the Special Edition?) but Im sure I won't agree. While its not as extreme as T1's 5.1 audio re-master, it was nice to hear the music at a decent level for one.

Extras and Disc presentation were again top noch. Id not seen The GNR video in years, and I never noticed how AXEL was not actually singing the words to the song.

I would like to be more more specific on technical aspects in this 'gushing' review but I was sucked into both movies like it was the first time!

These are my first experience of a TeamBLU presentation and it's amazing the time and love that you have put into these releases. Good luck with all your future projects.

On a side note it would be great to hear more about how you did some of this? What processes you used ect. Or is that a guarded bag of tricks ;)

 DJ and TeamBlu,

I HAVE to second the Commodore's sentiments on these two releases although my first experience was Conan.  All around a great experience in both audio and video.  It is really great to have these in the collection as I can show them off when like-minded friends are over.

Keep up the great flow ..... TeamBlu has a solid thing going.  All of your efforts are appreciated.

:)

Hi, Team Blu.

I just watched the mono version and noticed something weird (on the 2 mono tracks). It's at aound 1h22'59", during the fade to black between the love scene and the Terminator on its bike on its way to the Tiki Motel: we can hear the bike before it's on the screen, during the fade to black, and that doesn't seem right to me. I just compared with the R1 DVD mono track, and it's not like that. Was it on the Laserdisc you took the mono track from?

Lo,l, I noticed that recently on this as well. TBH, as far as my memory serves, it was always like that, but let's wait for the man for confirmation :)

Yeah, pretty sure that's how the mono mix has always been (so maybe the mono mix on the DVD is fake?).  That's how it is on my pre-THX Laserdisc at least.  I'd double-check the THX one as well but I just dropped and cracked it.  Ah well, at least it's not a particularly rare LD and I should be able to get another for a few hundred yen.

Well, I also have 2 French TV broadcast recordings in mono, and it's not like that. But... it's the French dub.

Which R1 DVD had it not happen? The Image, or the MGM?

MGM Special Edition flipper disc.

Interesting. There were a couple editing changes to the remaster at Cameron's behest (continuity error corrections, I believe) so the sound mix could have been conceivably slightly altered or revised as well, just to correct sync errors. Or maybe it was revised in the past and that's the master they grabbed for the DVD.

I know the MGM mono is not "fake", because that was the way I always watched the movie on that DVD, and all the familiar sounds are there. When I first bought the disc in 2001, I tried to watch it in 5.1, and couldn't get through the future war prologue before thinking "the lasers are wrong, the arpeggio is missing from the music cue", switched to the mono and everything seemed to be as I remembered it.

On the other hand, when chasing Kyle and Sarah in the alley behind the Tech Noir, on that DVD, the Terminator red vision sound effects appear too soon, before the red vision is on screen. But not that much.

That motorbike engine thing is because it was the point of a reel change in theaters. So basically the audio was mixed that way to bridge both reels with no  sound interruption.

Could anyone share with me just the mono track of T1?
