Well this doesn’t look promising. The high performance video and audio publication Home Cinema Choice received an advanced review copy of the 4K remastered home video release of “Terminator 2 Judgment Day” and the reviewer found the picture quality to be problematic, to say the least. After the unrelenting delays of both the single disc and endo arm releases, how much disappointment can fans take with this release?
If you are a Terminator fan you have likely heard the name Andrew Vajna before. Vajna was one of two film investors along with Mario Kassar who founded the company Carolco Pictures. Carolco was the film company that ultimately acquired the rights to the Terminator franchise from the Hemdale Film Corporation back in 1990 (after Vajna left), and went on to make the blockbuster film “Terminator 2: Judgment Day“. Later that decade Carolco went bankrupt, but out of the ashes Andy Vajna and Mario Kassar obtained the Terminator rights again and formed a new company called C2 Pictures in 2002. They produced the sequel “Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines” a year later. Vajna was also credited as an executive producer for both “Terminator Salvation” and the short-lived television series “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.” Throughout his life, Vajna has had his influential hands all over Terminator… and now he’s back!
In the 2009 film “Terminator Salvation”, audiences were introduced to a post-apocalyptic world where automated motorcycles called Moto-Terminators ruled the highways. Created and manufactured by Skynet sometime before 2018, their main function was to hunt and destroy human survivors that were still using the roads once created by civilized society. It was an interesting addition to the Terminator science fiction universe, that suddenly doesn’t feel very fictional anymore, due to Yamaha’s new project: The Motobot.
