    • No complaints on the audio front aside from a lack of any object-based mix Although there's no immersive object-based audio track in the form of Dolby Atmos or DTS:X on offer, at least few are going to...

    • Here's an idea: maybe the Terminator should come back from the future to caution Lionsgate about their kind of peculiar 4K UHD release strategy, not to mention some deficits in quality that seem to afflict...
