I received an email from Amazon customer service that states this double feature now contains the 2008 release, which has no extras or special features and uses an older, inferior MPEG-2 AVC video codec. I sent an email to Foxconnect asking them to verify the version of Predator that is currently included in this double feature release. I will post their response here if I receive definitive information. (EDIT) 2/14/2013. I have exchanged emails with Foxconnect, the contact for Fox Home Entertainment. I detailed the differences between the 2008 and 2010 releases of Predator for them and asked which release this double feature contains. They refused to tell me anything, other than it was a Blu-ray of the 1987 movie Predator.(EDIT) 3/11/2013. Please read the comments for additional information. Everyone who has commented has received the 2010 Ultimate Hunter Edition with this double feature.
At this point, my conclusion is that they may have been using this Own the Moments release as a vehicle to get rid of some unsold inventory of the 2008 Blu-ray release. Since everyone who has commented on this review has confirmed that they have received the Ultimate Hunter Edition, the email from Amazon customer service was probably incorrect.Read more ›
I picked this up and when I first got it in my hands, I started to doubt my choice. As advertised, the slip case contained only 2 slim dvd cases. I wondered if each one of those actually contained contained 2 disk, or did I in fact get the old, bare bones versions? And the fact that there are no specs on the outer slip as to the contents didn't make me feel any better. I slid the snap cases for each film out of the slip case and grew more aggrevated as the back of each case showed the features listed on the "bare bones" versions only. I opened the cases and to my relief, it was indeed the 2 disk versions, with a disk on the inside of each door. So it looks like someone at Fox messed up, or was just lazy, because this is the 2 disk version of each film, in the bare bones boxes.
So rest assured, you are getting the 2 disk special editions for a decent price and in a more compact package. (search around...I found mine for a heck of a price elsewhere).
As for the movies, I'm sure you have seen them. Predator, despite a few small moments, still holds up well. I Can't say as much for Pred 2. The movie is dated, and some of the things that made it a bit silly originally, shine even bolder here. Still, when Kevin Peter Hall is onscreen in a Stan Winston designed Predator suit, it is enteratining.Read more ›
So, I had to make the effort of up-grading this bad-boy on good ol' Blu-Ray... and whatta'ya know, Best Buy has both the 1st and 2nd Predators movies on sale this week (for only $7.99) in a nifty little Double Feature 2-Pack. I did a lot of research to find out what exactly this Collection consists of, and there is a lot of back-and-forth on what was actually included. There were many reviews stating that the set included the much more superior release of the 1st Predator, the 2010 "Ultimate Hunter Edition" which includes butt-loads of special features and a far better, fully remastered HD transfer, as opposed to the far inferior 2008 Blu-Ray release of the film that really didn't do the masterpiece justice(from what I've heard). But, then there were many other conflicting reviews stating that this set actually contains the cruddy 2008 release... ahhhh, who to believe?! Well, I figured it would be worth it to throw caution to the wind and just buy it at this awesome price, and hope I get the "UHE" version of the 1st film... and, I DID! SWEET!Read more ›
