Just watched T1 last night on DVD -- we wanted to review the first two before going to watch Terminator 3 on the big screen.

This film was made in 1984, and one of the audio track options was "original English mono". What, are you kidding?? Even the 5.1 version sounded horrible. And the dialog had pauses where they had probably expected dramatic gasps and digestion from the audience, only to slow the pace of this film down. The cyborg at the end was stop animation and made us laugh. We've sure come a long way since 1984 in terms of movie-making!

We'll be screening T2 shortly, and I remember that film (1991) to be substantially better than this one was. I hope so, or it's going to set very low expectations for the third installment!
