This is recurring theme, I love...

Love it!! I think I’ve seen the name. He should be more recognized like Horner or Zimmer. The Terminator is iconic!

Yeah, checked it out the other night being hopeful. Doesn't look HD to me and it's​ not even widescreen.

-sigh-

Anyways, dumb question but was there ever a ďopen matteĒ 4x3 DVD released? If itís the same as the laserdisc transfer that Cameron thought was okay, that might be a holdover solution.

I'm glad I can watch True Lies again but this transfer looks awful.

True Lies and The Abyss (extended and regular cut) both recently aired on HBO less than 6 months ago and both have fine HD transfers.

I laughed.

Well, it wasnít so much a laugh as a smirk but it was somewhere on the spectrum of amusement.

James Cameron offers an update on his new scan/ and subsequent physical release of “The Abyss”

Cameron: “Yeah, we finished the transfer and I wanted to do it myself because Mikael [Salomon] did such a beautiful job with the cinematography on that film. It is truly, truly gorgeous cinematography. [...] So I just recently finished the high-def transfer a couple of months ago so presumably there’ll be Blu-rays and it will stream with a proper transfer from now on. I appreciate what you said about the film. It didn’t make much money in its day, but it does seem to be well-liked over time.”

Hope the meaning behind "Blu-rays" is regular and 4K.

Well-liked? Are you kidding me Mr. Cameron? There are people out here who would climb over all their fellow humans and step on each head to get to the front of the line to buy this on BD...

I wonder if thatís what has taken so long - his perception that itís not a fan favorite so he didnít bother giving it any attention?

Since he’s only mentioning The Abyss I’m guessing he’s trying to pretend True Lies doesn’t exist anymore.

Is GeekGab reliable? Otherwise I hate when they add the word "tentatively." Day one for me.

A lot of what GeekGab posts is from international retailers, which is the case here. (The second screenshot in that tweet is a translated version of this link.)

Yeah, I don't follow Twitter much but everything I've read about GeekGab is that they'll use basically anything as a source to try to be "first" to break release details and if they're right, they're right; if they're wrong, they can always go back and delete the tweet....kind of the broken clock is right two times a day mentality.

Serious question does Cameron pretend True Lies doesn't exist anymore?
