What T2 version should I get?

I know the original SE release of T2 was great. The casing, the audio/video and a crap load of special features

Think I should get this or wait for the new Extreme DVD? ANyone see a comparison review of the versions?

I honestly care about extra features more than slightly improved visuals. But the new commentary track seems pretty cool. Think its worth getting the soon-to-be-released-version?


Hey by the way, this board is great. I've been lurking here for quite a while, and This place has been extremly helpful and informative. Its nice not to see a single flame on a message board.

Another T-2, Ehhhhh!!!

I dunno, I also have the Metal Slip Case, prior "Ultimare Edition" of T-2 and have always been pleased with it. I think I will sit this one out, and wait for the next release of T-2, which at the rate they are going, should be in about 24 months, I think the rumor is it will be the, "Not only Ultimate, Not only Extreme, but the only Authorized Super Duper James Cameron need more Ca$h Version"

Artisan needs to make better movies, not release 18 versions of 10 year old movies, they were lucky enough to release.

Just my 2 cents,

I just finished watching a rental of The Shaft, a pretty cheesy (see Mike Long's review) B "horror" movie. The DVD was released by Artisan in pan 'n' scam only.

If I had liked the movie, I wouldn't bother buying the craptacular Artisan release. Nope, I had already discovered a region 2 German release in its proper OAR of 2.35:1.

Artisan sucks monkey butt. I won't be buying T2 yet again.

Welcome, whynotsmile!!

To answer your question, both...if you can swing it. They both have some good stuff on them.

From what I understand if you have to have only one and care more about the supplements, get the UE. It is missing the Cameron commentary but the EE has only that and a couple of short featurettes along with only one version of the film (2 if you play it on the computer). The UE had 3 long docs, a comprehensive commentary, deleted scenes and 3 versions of the film. UE wins the supplement battle hands down.

UE also has DD EX and DTS ES. EE has only DD EX (if you care about that sort of thing). Some would disagree however I think most would pick the UE over the EE if they had to choose one. It is by far a more comprehensive release that the EE supplement-wise.

Other than Artisan milking the title for more $$$, I think the main reason for this release is to get the experimental Microsoft HD version out there. Gates seems to have some interest in taking over yet another market.
