How exactly is this a region rip off? They are region A/B which means you can import the UK version and play it on your US Blu-ray machine.

I got both of those real cheap.

If I can replace them real cheap with a better version some day then I'll consider it.

I'm happy with the T2 disc completely,.. but better would be better I suppose.

Does Total Recall have the audio pitch issues the UK HD DVD release had? Just wondering since these releases are supposed to be straight HD DVD ports.

No. Corrected. The color pallette on this film is quite wonderful.

Same here I am not buying T2 until they come out with a Blu Ray that is essentially the Ultimate Edition I have on DVD with DTS MA. Being Lionsgate it will be DTS MA 7.1 I would presume.

I own the US releases of both films and I am quite satisfied with them. The reviews for the UK releases on amazon.co.uk are not that enthusiastic ("Makes a mockery of Blu-ray", "Avoid at all costs"). What really matters is that the UK release of T2 apparently features the longer cut. I am considering getting this one but Optimum is reallly not a company known for reference quality, right on the contrary.

I seriously dont understand how someone can be this uninformed.

Its a well known fact that the US releases of T2 and TR on Blu arent all that great. They were two of Lionsgate's first Blu-ray releases. Barerly better than the standard DVD releases.They dont even feature lossless audio.

The UK releases on the other hand have been consistently praised for their great presentation. The only neagtive is their lack of special features.
