You watched the entire X-Men series in preparation for Wolverine, brushed up on all of the Star Trek episodes for the release of the new film and now its time to dive into your Terminator library. This will be easy if you have all three films on DVD and itíll be stellar if you can watch all three in the glorious image offered by Blu-ray, but youíll really be blown away if you have the Terminator 2 Skynet Edition or the Limited Edition T2 Complete Collectorís Set as part of your library.
Judgment Day picks up eleven years after the original 1984 film. Sarah Conner (Linda Hamilton) is in a mental facility for trying to bomb a computer factory while her son, John Connor (Edward Furlong), lives with foster parents. Two terminators, one just like the machine Sarah encountered in the first film (Arnold Schwarzenegger) and another thatís an updated model (Robert Patrick), locate John in an L.A. mall. While the advanced T-1000 is programmed to kill John the other reveals he has been reprogrammed and was sent to keep him safe. Sarah, John and the Terminator must fight to take down the T-1000 and Cyberdyne Systems so Skynet, the company responsible for creating the machines that put humans into slavery in the future, never comes into being.
These sets are must haves for anyone who considers themselves a diehard Terminator fan. On top of the high-definition version of the film with the all-new English 6.1 DTS-HD master audio lossless, Terminator 2 Skynet Edition on Blu-ray brings you picture-in-picture behind the scenes video with text commentary and multimedia galleries, a storyboard-script mode, interactive quizzes and games, BD-Live features, audio commentary with 26 cast and crew members, audio commentary with director James Cameron and co-writer William Wisher and is D-Box compatible. If thatís no enough for you, you can buy the Limited Edition T2 Complete Collectorís Set which comes with the Skynet Edition and the Extreme Edition and Ultimate Edition DVDs. That means youíll have every T2 special feature ever released. You can top all that off with a digital copy of the film and a T-800 Endoskull post that plays sounds and has eyes that glow.
Your future may be in your hands, but itís pretty obvious that if you drop the $174.99 for the Limited Edition T2 Complete Collectorís Set your hands are going to be full with T2 goodies for a long time. If youíre worried you wonít get through all of the material in time for the release of Terminator Salvation on May 21st, you may opt for the more modest purchase, the Terminator 2 Skynet Edition on Blu-ray for $29.99.
