The Optimum UK release is the same as the one from Japan and is region free. That's the one I've got and it looks fantastic....much better than the Skynet release.

#1 - Japanese release.

http://www.amazon.co.jp/タ&

According to YesAsia, it's out of print, and Amazon.jp only has 12 copies left.

#2 - UK release.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Terminator-2...0150918&sr=1-2

This one might be out of print. I haven't seen it available at Amazon.uk for months.

As for the rest of the releases, they're just ok if you don't want to spend much money.

If you don't want to pay a much higher price for the import then the Skynet version is the way to go. I only paid $10 for mine new so I don't feel guilty at all.

none of them are that great.
hopefully James Cameron's rumored remastering spree will include a proper transfer of this film.

I own the Skynet edition and that is what I am sticking too until/unless the movie is remastered with a new definitive North American release.

For reasons unknown the first squeeze LD (withdrawn version) still holds the best 5.1 mix of the film on any support ever. also the print used isn't color coded, so you can see how the Cameron footage look when shot, instead of color processed.
Reportedly, when seeing this LD, Cameron went ballistic and had it withdrawn, and replaced. The version pictured above is the replacement, the old one had Arnold face from the T2 teaser trailer, with closing T2 logo on it.



I can read here and there that the reissue with THX logo is more valuable. On the contrary, I think this one is better, the reissue is just like the first DVD would be, a couple of years later.
Widescreen is better.

The UK edition is about $11.71 used from zoverstocks on Amazon.uk.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-lis...&condition=all

I've ordered from them many times and the items are always in great condition. No scratches or anything and they arrive in about a week.

The THX/Rydstrom remix is crap imho the CDS track had a lot more punch

Looks like you can get the UK release on Amazon.com from some third parties.

Not sure, I'm probably speaking about the Dolby Surround track... will have to check that one.

It was the first mix done for the cinema, I only have the SE of T2 on Laser and they all have the remixed sound
