Now Is The Time To Buy The Mad Max And Terminator Blu-ray Box Sets

Mad MaxAmazon’s Gold Box deal today is both The Mad Max trilogy Blu-ray box set and the Terminator “Anthology” Blu-ray box set.

I’m not sure I’d heard the Terminator films referred to as an anthology until this set was released but it kind of makes sense I suppose and it certainly sounds better than quadrilogy.

The Mad Max Trilogy set is currently $27.99, which is 44% off the rrp of $49.99. The first two Mad Max films really are fantastic, with some truly incredible stunt work. The discs for the first two both have audio commentaries, the first with various members of the crew discussing the film and the second with George Miller and cinematographer Dean Semler. The third film doesn’t really live up to the first two but it’s still a lot of fun. That disc unfortunately has no extras.

The Mad Max discs all boast very decent transfers and while I haven’t verified the coding myself reportedly the first disc is locked to region A but the other two are not locked.

TerminatorThe Terminator Blu-ray set is currently $24.99, 50% off the rrp of $49.99. The ratio of good to bad is not quite as good in this set as it is with the Mad Max films but the first two films are both excellent, but for very different reasons.

The second Terminator film is a particularly impressive technical achievement and will be film that will almost certainly be referenced as an important example of special effects work for many years.

The Terminator set comes with a number of special features, with the second film probably being the best of the set with two different cuts of the film and two commentaries, one with James Cameron and writer William Wisher and the other with a selection of the crew.

As far as I can tell all of the Blu-rays in this Terminator set are locked to region A.

If you want to pick these up I suggest you hurry as the Gold Box deals only last for one day.
