The directors cut holds together very well. The theatrical never did.

The D.C. does work better.
The ending has always been problematic sadly.

Disagree.

Good for you. You're allowed to. I think the entire alien aspect is what messed it up, yet for me, that was the charm of it.

I started out watching the theatrical cut and it was awesome. Then the director's cut came out and it was even more awesome. I prefer the DC version.

Same here saw it in the theater but then on home video enjoyed the DC much more. I can watch both but prefer the DC. BUT I have not seen it since the good ole 5 Star DVD came out.

I'm probably partial to the theatrical version because that's the one I saw first. But, hey, I'm one of the few that thinks the theatrical version of Blade Runner is the best version, so what do I know? ;)

I would have seriously thought about going 4K. But I guess I can put it off a bit longer.

I watched The Abyss: Special Edition on the weekend.

This release, whenever it comes out, better have both cuts.

FWIW, True Lies is now making the rounds on Cinemax for those who have it and want to watch.

True Lies is now owned by Disney. Not sure if they'd put a new release out even if Cameron was willing.

Cameron is a proven moneymaker.
Disney will do whatever he wants done.

OldBoy 03-26-19 09:09 PM

Re: Cameron Talks Avatar Redux, 3D, Titanic, Abyss/True Lies Blu-ray
 
Can't Disney do whatever they want if they own it, with or without Cameron's permission or does Cameron like own rights that Disney can't touch?

DJariya 03-26-19 09:21 PM

Re: Cameron Talks Avatar Redux, 3D, Titanic, Abyss/True Lies Blu-ray
 
I think Cameron owns the rights through his company Lightstorm Entertainment.

He would just need Disney to distribute it.

Even in the cases where Cameron doesn't own the movie outright, he allegedly has it in his contract that he must personally approve new video masters.

The Abyss has had a Blu-ray transfer awaiting his review since at least 2010. Note that he didn't say he actually planned to review it, just that it's waiting.

Dan 05-24-19 02:10 PM

Re: Cameron Talks Avatar Redux, 3D, Titanic, Abyss/True Lies Blu-ray
 
Also, as noted in my post that was deleted in the merge of these threads for some reason, Cameron's own comment is from November 2018, not March of this year. Nothing new at all here (yet).

I don't know if this is news to warrant bumping this thread. I was lurking at that other forum that shall not be named here, but apparently you can do a disc to digital conversion for True Lies and The Abyss on VUDU. I did a search and both movies come up but aren't for sale. Just thought that might be worth passing along.

True Lies can be upgraded DVD to HDX while Abyss can only be DVD to SD.

I watched True Lies and Abyss in HD on one of the movie channels while we were visiting family. They look great and it's a bummer that they aren't on 4K or blu ray yet.

Didn't Cameron oversee the abomination that is Terminator 2 UHD 4K? Even we get Abyss and True Lies on Blu or 4K, I wouldn't be surprised if I have to hold onto my dvd's.

​​​​​​He remastered it for 3D. They used that same remaster for the 4K release, which explains why it got so messed up.

Same here. Don’t really care if it works at this point.

OldBoy 10-09-19 10:50 AM

Re: Cameron Talks Avatar Redux, 3D, Titanic, Abyss/True Lies Blu-ray
 
so why does Vudu show a listing for both the DC and theatrical of The Abyss and True Lies when they can't be purchased?

E Unit 10-09-19 11:00 AM

Re: Cameron Talks Avatar Redux, 3D, Titanic, Abyss/True Lies Blu-ray
 
I'm guessing the acquisition of Fox by Disney and Disney converting the Fox titles to MA. I'll wager that they'll be available at some point in the future - but not yet.

Word on the street (from Charles de Lauzirika, notable documentarian of behind the scenes docs) is that the remastered version of The Abyss played on HBO today.
Anyone else catch it?

Seems like a real UHD disc announcement may be sooner than later, if that's the case.

Still only theatrical version though.

It did but it was theatrical cut. True Lies did, too. This was a couple of days ago, so don't know if they're both still there. They also ported over to HULU if you have the add-on.

I thought I saw it on Starz but I saw an HD version of The Abyss over a year ago and it looked fantastic. I canít remember but I think it was the theatrical cut as well.

Its on HBO.

Just watched True Lies on HBO. It looks good, and still holds up as a ‘90s action flick. I don’t think it’s something I need to own, though.
