I'd love an ISO of the Terminator 2 one. I have Spiderman 1 & 2, the Jurassic Park set from Japan, Batman Begins from Russia, and 1 or 2 others. They are cool to have for sure.

Here's a simple explanation of why the superbit DVDs are cool to have (mainly due to the much higher average video bitrate) : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superbit

That was my thinking, too, when first was getting into video. Bought the Superbit of Lawrence Of Arabia.

Capped a shot on the desert sand from it, and from the restoration (where Peter O'Tool was called back to re-read some lost cut dialogue; he definitely sounded older) DVD (in a Lawrence desert-cloth case).

Did a side-by-side, zoomed-in comparison of individual pixels in the sand. Disappointment ... they looked identical. Never checked the audio -- no tools for a fair comparison there. (From the Wikipedia entry on Superbit, where was noted that the MPEG-2 bit-rate was max'ed, I guess I should've compared an action shot.)

No need to feel guilt... it's a fun cyberpunk movie and everybody love club sandwiches!

I preserve movies as they first appeared in Italy.
