Looking for "The Terminator" (1984) theatrical color grading
Yes, we've been saying it for years. The people who complain are people who grew up on the badly done DVDs of the films.

Again this boils down to the inherent difference between photochemical and digital timing.
How was the print in other regards? The print I viewed (twice) was very saturated and had a lot of warmth, especially the skin tones.

I agree that the differences of digital timing must be the reason that the color biases can look strange to some. And 8-bit color space certainly makes it more difficult to differentiate similar green/teal/blue tones.

I'm now of the opinion that the old German DVD is actually the most accurate video release we've seen, despite a few oddities. Especially after looking back at the google drive folder that was posted in this thread a while back with photos of print frames, and comparing the different versions.
Finest kind.
