Done well

This is a featurette found on the 2-Disc Special Edition DVD of The Terminator. It's also one of the best and most memorable that I've ever seen(I freely admit that part of that may be due to me very much liking and enjoying the film itself). Technically speaking, it's well-done. It consists of clips from the movie, interviews(at times these seem odd, since some of the people had multiple interviews from different times) and footage from the making of it, as well as storyboards and conceptual art. Members of every aspect of putting it together get to speak, and you see all three stages of production(pre, during and post, for the uninitiated). I wouldn't complain if Biehn had gotten to talk more, but I simply find him so cool, I'm not sure there is an upper limit to that. Many of the crew and actors have interesting and good things to say, and the anecdotes are just great. They are a big reason for this being such a marvelous documentary. Several of them are rather funny, and among those told are genuinely inspiring ones. There is a bit of the usual love-fest, but it isn't too bad, nor is there a terrible lot of it. There are some disturbing images in this, mainly from the title, or in the concepts for it. I recommend this to fans of Jim, Michael, "and the rest", not to mention anyone wanting to know about the creating of the piece. 7/10
