    I have the first blu-ray release - avoided the ultimate hunter edition due to the bad reviews

    I have both. When I want to watch the film itself I throw in the first blu-ray release and I use the Ultimate Hunter Edition basically as a bonus disc since it has all the extras.

    I just want an edition with a good quality print. I'm only going to watch the extra features once and be done with them.

    I've heard the conflicting stories and seen pictures to back them up, so it's like buying a lottery ticket: you don't know which disc you'll get until you open it. I'd suggest buy used, then you can ask the seller what the disc art looks like and tell from that, or look yourself if you find one in a store.:)

    The 2008 release (non-DNR'er release) doesn't have a French 5.1 Dolby Digital track, to my knowledge.

    Might just check for non American Editions. Wasn't there one with a new "no DNR" transfer released somewhere or am I mistaken?

    Fox are supposedly prepping a "3D" version of Predator on Blu-ray for later this year. I'm not sure how well that'd work out, but I've heard the "3D" version of Top Gun looked pretty good...so perhaps. As long as the idiots leave off the fucking DNR this time around!

    I didn't know where to put this.

    But Amazon has a Gold Box deal of the day.

    Bundle

    Predator (Ultimate Hunter Edition)
    Predator 2
    Alien vs. Predator
    Alien vs. Predator Requiem
    Predators

    All for $19.99



    Is this a good deal? Or is this about what they should be worth. Remember it's not a box set, just a bundling of movies. The blu-ray transfers, are they hit or miss?

    Predator 1 and 2 suffers from heavy DNR.
    The rest looks great, though AVP2 has a very dark transfer, but it was the same in the theater.
    At that price, I would go for it.
    Buy keep a look out for the older BD release of the first Predator, as it doesn't suffer from DNR.
