This is the must have disc for anyone wondering what the hype is over dvd. artisan has done a bang up job on this ultimate edition, which contains both the original theatrical version and the special edition which has multiple deleted scenes. the menu screen alone is exhaustive and imaginative, replicating the interior of the cyberdine. every aspect of the film is covered extensively from preproduction through marketing of the film with interviews with the cast and crew. there's also a "making of" the t2-3d attraction that's housed at both universal studios in hollywood and florida.-no video here, simply pictures and text. the dvd also comes with a booklet (much needed to break everything down) that has chapter listings for both the original and special edition, and a collectors metal slip case that wraps around the case. the movie, after almost ten years, holds up really well, with the special effects still something to marvel at. even the thx opening has been "terminatorfied". if you're on the fence about it, trust me, it's worth every penny. it's too bad all dvd's weren't approached with such care. although if they were,there'd be no reason to leave the house.
