Still waiting for this. Any news, rumours, etc? Van Ling said anything? I'm desperate to own this. It's one of me and my brother's favourite films, let alone Cameron flicks.

Re: The Abyss on BD

Its mind boggling that theres still no release in sight. I expected one in the wake of Avatar's success

The Terminator just got the BD release it deserved. But it was an under the radar release. I want The Abyss - the DVD is grainy and blocky as hell.

I dont really know why. Was it because it wasnt such a success? Then again, stuff like Troll 2 is on BD. Plus, maybe it didnt reach expectations, but it made a lot of money anyways

Perhaps they don't consider it a priority because of the weak audience reception at the time. The movie also did not attained any cult status over the years and is relatively an unknown movie

Abyss failed because people expected another edge of your seat action movie from the guy who did Terminator and Aliens. Expectations were wrong.

In addition to that, there were two other underwater movies such as Deep Star Six and Leviathan

Re: The Abyss on BD

Ok, so I don't know how true this is, it's taken from January of this year, but I'm a pretty big X Files fan and one of my favourite X Files sites came across this website talking about that series coming out on Blu Ray. In amongst this article is some news as well about The Abyss and True Lies coming to Blu Ray. Third paragraph down if you're interested. Exciting news, if it's true.

A source says James Cameron, is very hard to work with.

My reply on FB pm was lol I guess The Abyss won't be coming out this year.

When, when, when is coming?

Not sure what to make of it but not getting my hopes up high for it for re-mix near field home mixes totally depress me, when we could simply just have proper unaltered Theatrical mix far field that can play fine in any size cinema even the titchy small ones of today.

They better not jerk the public around with a botched colour like Laserdisc DVD and I only seen a proper 35mm print on, Channel 4, years ago, before they started showing these common versions that often used for DVD or bluray today that are mostly odd looking on some.

4k is another way of milking and doesn't that make anyone angry? Me, not gonna buy 4k, hollywood can keep it! If they can't make bluray better like they should have done from the beginning instead of jerking around those who know what look for and listen for.

As for Terminator 2 3d they can keep it! How many times as that film being milked for are money for a dishonest transfers that don't like nothing like the 35mm print. I want a flashback when seeing a 35/70mm film transfer not be distracted. So cameron can keep his 3d The Milkinator 2 as I'm not giving £20.00 for 3d cardboard cut-outs.

I disagree with most of the above.

First, one got to understand that movies are a business. The business of MGM, Fox etc is not to release once a movie and that's it. It's to re-release it over and over as long as it sells. Also one got to understand the market is made in such a way that an old barcode is considered obsolete and will not have the same sales attentions, from the shops and sellers, and distributors, as a new barcode. So films are refreshed over and over as long as they sell.

4K and HDR is a leap in color space, just like the leap between 256 and 4096 colors with monitors. Sure the added resolution is not as big as the one between DVD and Blu-ray (just twice), but the HDR makes a whole difference, meaning more accurate colors are now possible when it comes to old films.

I agree with mixes, however, often the remixes loose the dynamic range, and it's preferable for the original theatrical mix to be included, in lossless.

As for T2 3D I'm looking forward to it and the new scan. I don't get what this guy is on because the only thing in T2 Blu-ray not looking like the original prints is the color on the first scene with the bikers (it was bluer in cinemas, but was color timed clearer and orangey for the LD/VHS on, for clarity). I hope the new scan fixes this back to the original color. That's it.
