    How are those screen caps the same if it's a totally new 4k transfer? That doesn't seem right...

    According to what I've been reading online, it's not only not a new 4K transfer, it's not even a new transfer at all.

    Wow, if that's true then the people behind this release are assholes. Did they think fans wouldn't notice? :eek2:

    I'm surprised Fox pulled this crap. After the outcry over the DNR on Patton, they silently reissued a new edition with a new transfer and minus the DNR.

    Screw 'em!

    Strange how for some flicks they care, and others they don't. I esp. love the new CGI/photoshop leaves and sparks added to the UHE transfer and fitted for 3D.:rolleyes: Isn't John McTiernan still in jail? Someone is George Lucasing his shit. All I can say is I'm happy I don't have a 3D TV and Fox is lucky I'm too busy boycotting Warner Bros, as this is a boycott worthy lie calling this a new transfer. They just keep making Predator worse, fucking stop it already!

    Wow, that's the first I've even heard of that. :nervous: I do see all the news stories on a Google search though...

    Either I missed it in the news, or just thought it was somebody else at the time.

    Dammit, tried to cancel my order for the head from Foxconnect after reading the reviews here. That site doesn't have a cancel order button. So three days ago I sent an e-mail asking to cancel order #xxxx, which went unanswered.

    So yesterday I called Foxconnect's 800 number to cancel by phone. Operator took down my info and said she'll put in a cancellation request. This morning (actually 1AM last night) I get an e-mail telling me my order's been shipped.

    I'm not a happy camper.

    This is rather unfortunate. Personally I have no desire to watch Predator ever again, but I know there's a large fan base. Fox is better than this. As a fan of blu-ray, 3D, Plasma TV's and catalog titles, know I'm on a sinking ship without a paddle.

    Well assuming you're talking about plasma slowly being phased out, OLED is starting to come into the market and while it may be expensive atm I have read it has the potential of being better than plasma. Personally I'm waiting for the 4k OLED tvs to be released in an affordable price range though that could be a LONG wait :lol:

    Yeah, I'm sad to see plasma go. I really like my current set more than my previous LCD's. I am optimistic about OLED's though.

    It is sad. I love my Panasonic plasma, its been a great tv. May upgrade to a bigger model plasma this year seeing as it may be a long wait for technology like OLED to become affordable.

    Didn't know Plasma technology is on the way out. Bummer. I don't really like how LCDs look.

    Four days after getting a "your order has shipped" notice instead of the "your order has been canceled" notice I was hoping for, now I'm told they canceled the order after all. And the tracking number comes up not found.

    Now I guess I just need to keep an eye on my Amex and make sure the refund comes through.

    Such a shame they fucked this up yet again. I definitely would have bought the Predator bust set cause that thing is really nice. Too bad they put more effort into the packaging than they did the actual transfer. Oh well, looks like I'm sticking with my 2008 blu and 2 disc dvd collector's edition.

    I am sure it has been said before many times over on here. HD format blu-rays are becoming nothing more then a gimmick. At least when it comes the USA blu-ray releases IMO.

    I disagree. This past Black Friday has set a record for blu-ray sales. All in all, I think the format has done quite well. 3D blu-ray's on the other hand have been handled in a frustrating manner. I'm getting a blu-ray burner with the software to up convert movies to 3D. Friday the 13th Part 3 is the first disc to get this treatment. Then I am creating the Dawn of the Dead Extended Mall Hours from the new HD masters courtesy of Happinet (which just shipped). I can't wait!!!
