The Terminator Anthology
« on: August 28, 2012, 03:44:51 pm »
The Terminator Anthology - Warner Bros. - Blu-ray

This is cool. Despite enjoying all the Terminator movies, I've never bought any of the disks. Well that just might change from this Best Buy Exclusive

It's kind of strange that it took this long for a box set to come out featuring all four Terminator films. It's even stranger that a box set this elaborate is a Best Buy exclusive. But considering the feature set of this Blu-ray bad boy, a trip to Best Buy should be in order for any fans of the franchise. Not only does it include all four films, but it also has all three cuts of Terminator 2: Judgment Day: the theatrical (137 minutes), the special edition (152 minutes), and the extended cut (154 minutes), plus both the theatrical PG-13 (115 minutes) and the R-rated (118 minutes) cuts of Terminator Salvation.

As if that was incentive enough, the special features are packed in as well. For The Terminator, there's seven deleted scenes and 33 minutes of making-of materials (in SD). For T2 there's two commentary tracks, and eight hours of behind-the-scenes materials. T3 boasts three commentary tracks, three featurettes, as well as a deleted scene, and a gag reel. TS includes a Maximum Movie Mode, as well as two features dedicated to how the franchise was updated for the future.

Now, if you already own all four films on Blu-ray, all of those features probably sound pretty familiar. There are indeed no new goodies here. The transfers are the same, as are the extras; all five discs (Salvation has a second disc) are identical content-wise, they just happen to be all packaged together for the first time in a pretty sturdy set with the skull of a T-800 embossed on the cover. If you, like me, dig the entire franchise -- I find Salvation the weakest of the anthology, but do think Rise of the Machines never got its fair due for at least feeling like a spiritual successor to Judgment Day -- but don't actually own all the films on Blu-ray, it's a pretty convenient and affordable package (assuming you have a Best Buy nearby).

Since I don't have a Blu-ray player (that will change once the new XBox Console comes out), this set will the the first Blu-ray set I will buy, which would make Terminator 2: Judgment Day for me a Double-Dip twice over. I don't know why I keep buying the same movie over and over and over....................
