So we all love a bit of True Lies. Well, most of us, I assume.

And we all know James Cameron has True Lies and The Abyss on his to do list for UHD restorations and releases.

And we all know True Lies appeared on DVHS a few years back, which is the main source for moody HD copies of the film floating around, as well as a (Dutch?) HD TV capture.

And we all know a supposed (Spanish?) Blu Ray is supposedly doing the rounds with no proof of the actual source.

So what is True Lies doing airing on AMC in HD?

It looks great too, very clean and better than the DVHS imho.

Thoughts?

There has been a streamed 1080p version even before the Spanish bootleg surfaced recently.
The streamed version has DD5.1 audio afaik but the bootleg BD has DTS-HD MA 5.1 audio.

https://forum.lddb.com/viewtopic.php?p=113339#p113339

Both can be found via torrents and probably other places (the bootleg BD full version is around 36GB).

Bootleg BD scene release name is either:
True.Lies.1994.1080p.BluRay.AVC.DTS-HD.MA.5.1-NOGRP
or
True.Lies.1994.1080p.BOOTLEG.BluRay.AVC.DTS-HD.MA.5.1-NOGRP

^Both above are around 36GB, it's exactly the same release but with edited name to identify it as a bootleg.

There is another BD scene release which is the first one I noticed, but it's much smaller (under 13GB):
True.Lies.1994.1080p.BluRay.x264.DTS-HD.MA.5.1-FGT


A sample webrip scene release name is:
True.Lies.1994.1080p.AMZN.WEBRip.DDP5.1.x264-ABM

^That webrip is around 11GB. There are smaller ones but probably have lower bitrates, idk if there's a larger one around. I first saw it about a year or so ago, it was ripped from Amazon Prime.



Edit:
I already mentioned it in the other thread but I'll ask in here again.
If anybody knows where to find high quality scans of the bootleg BD cover and disc art please PM me or whatever, I need them :angel:

Cameron is still running around with his Blue monkeys and has no time to release a proper movie on Blu Ray.

Yeah, he does seem to be living for his weird furry people. When his 7 different Avatar movies are finally all ready to go we’ll see if anyone even remembers the thing anymore.

Aliens, True Lies and The Abyss really deserve a proper 4k treatment and release on Blu-ray and UHD.

But not as much as Avatar 4 does. I think we can all agree on that.

The cinema is dying and Covid-19 is the grim reaper. Some people just don't want to understand.
