The Predator is Unleashed on Blu-Ray This Week (Review Roundup)

 The Predator is Unleashed on Blu-Ray This Week (Review Roundup)This week marks the official release of The Predator on DVD, Blu-Ray and Ultra HD Blu-Ray in North America. Only a few reviews have been published so far but they’ve been fairly average overall. There is still a mixed reaction to the film but the picture and sound presentation has been well-received, however.

Those of you with 4K HDR TVs will get a kick out of the HDR effects. The opening scene with the Predator spaceships flying is evidently a spectacle! The Dolby Atmos track is pretty impressive too with explosions and gunfire really shining.

The downside to the release is the special features which are lacklustre to say the least. Three deleted scenes which include nothing from the changed third act, as well as a few short documentaries. Look out for some short glimpses of the Emissary Predators in one featurette.

    I think you're best giving up
    on the format then.

    4K's 3D's replacement.

    But 4K and 3D are really Apples and Oranges. One is just an improvement in clarity and resolution and the latter is more emmersive with its illusion of depth perception

    I must tell you though, there is no substitute for watching a well made 3D film on a flat HD screen at home. Of course it puts low lit badly 3D converted theaters to shame, but it even bests IMAX Theaters. The crisp 3D adds so much, I don't believe I could watch "Avatar" or "Guardians of the Galaxy" the 2D way again.  The wonder is real.  :)

    I own precisely one 3D blu-ray, and that's only because the unrated cut of The Wolverine was only available in that set. And it's not even on the 3D disc. :laugh:

    Yep, the 3D version is a separate disc.  ;D

    Acquire a Region-Free Blu-ray Player.
    Solved.

    3D players are a whole different type of blu-ray animal. Just like standard blu-ray players can't run 4K discs, standard blu-ray players can't run 3D discs either.

    But considering the 3D format is all but dead in the US, I definitely would like to avoid locating and purchasing a region-free 3D Blu-ray player when the format is already on life-support (which definitely saddens me since I'm a fan of the format. :'()

    I think a bluray are region free, arnt they? I bought a europeon lion king and it works fine.

    Not always. Case in point I couldn't purchase the Zavvi UK disc of "Terminator 2: 3D" because it was region specific, so I ultimately purchased a Russian copy.

    Why a 3D disc was never released in the US while the whole point of T2's theatrical re-release was its 3D conversion, is beyond me.

    I don't hate it. It's entertaining in parts. Does that count?
    I felt the same with avpr, I didn't like the that much as a whole but liked all the scenes with wolf. I'd like to see more predator scenes with them talking and interacting with each other. In the original he was just the monster but now I'd like to see more predator characters.

    I liked parts of it very much. Mainly the fugutive killing everyone in the lab.
    I did not care for the kid or the lead actor very much or olivia munn knowing everything over and over out loud.
    I would have had more of the loonies killing other people to survive instead of going after the fugitive predator.
    The sniper who got his arm blown off just kind of dissapears after shooting a flare.

    Also they wasted use of a great parcore athelete by not having him do cool flips or atleast more then running and walking.
    I was really looking forward to seeing him show off his moves in a predator outfit.
    I think the predator actor was the best part.

    The movie was crap on the big screen.  Nothing is gonna change when it's on Blu-Ray.  Add as many "special features" as you want. 

    It was crap then, it's re-packaged crap now. 

    Literally no buzz about this film 2 weeks after it was released.  No one cares about this forgettable film.

    Finally I will have a chance to see this.  With all the negativity surrounding the film I'm going in with super low expectations which hopefully means I will enjoy the film...

    Why waste your time?

    The same reason I watched it. I had heard and read everything that was awful about it. But sometimes, seeing is believing. There is always a hope that everyone else is wrong, or has failed to see something good in it. That there might be a few things I would enjoy.

    I had a basic understanding of what I was in for, and I put my expectations underneath the floor. It didn't help. What I saw blew my expectations straight into the ground and all the way to China. But, someone else might like it. If I hadn't watched it for myself yet, I'd still be wondering if I was missing out on something. I cant blame others for wanting to know.
