No good Predator artwork on any Blu-ray steelbook ugh, the best one is just decent, and it's over ten years old.

Does it actually have the mid-torso joint of an action figure or does it just look that way?  :P

OMG Is that what that is? Okay, I officially change my position to hating it now.

That's exactly what it is.
It's bloody awful.

The Scar head I could get over, but the action figure body and
the lack of a Predator CH Mask does it in, instead we get
Falconer for some reason- extremely disappointing when
you consider this is probably the last set we'll ever get -
that will omit "The Predator" unless the next film's called;

PREDATOR 3

Jesus Christ, I hope so.

Looks like Hot Toys classic predator version 1 body with Scar Predator head from AVP.

Anyone else disappointed with the Steelbook for this release or just me?

I like it. It's much better than this imo:



Ugh, horrible artwork. Especially if you consider we lern in the movie that the Predator is not after trophies but DNA-juice from the spines of his victims.

Not all Predators, according to Shane Black. So it's just a clan. Yep, I'm holding on to those words in my mighty grip and never letting it go. ;D

Keep fighting the good fight ;)

Not yet, an Alien 4K cut has been approved this year by Ridley Scott though.
Aliens on Blu-ray is likely the best we're going to get judging from JC's track record, it'll probably be exactly the same colour timing etc in 4K.
He could surprise us and release a  wax sculpture mess with digital transformations.  (Judgment Day 4K)

A3 is anyone's guess, I'd want a new intermediate cut with fixed compositing.
(More on the side of the Assembly Cut, trim some of the fat.)
The theatrical cut nor the assembly cut is the best that could be made of the editing and pacing of that film.
It would still be the longest of the three original Alien films at it's best.

Soudns great, is there an equivalent of this quality on the Alien films? I really want the four Alien movies and two Predator together in this quality.

I'm hesitant on buying either Predator or Aliens in 4k because there isn't any way to fix the film grain issue, now is there? It's just the way films were made back then. What we've got is what we've got. The end.

Plus it's kind of weird to buy a trilogy to then only later buy another movie. I've bought dozens of these duology/trilogy/quadrilogy's in the past and at my ripe old age... i kind of feel like a sucker. I'm happy with my blu-ry and dvd's tbh and I'll wait for The Predator in 4k... well if it's good, of course.

Still it's not just me right? From degrading VHS to DVD was a large step up and from DVD to Bluray was even better but shockingly movies from the 70/80/early 90's don't (to me) get any better with their 4k transfers. However older films oddly do seem better. Is it worth it to buy 4k, in most cases, no but they do seem better.

I always loved to look at the details and how movies were made, So when I got the Blue Ray Predator 2 I was sooo happy, because I could see the ropes they used for making Predator net slide, or the rope which pulled the jamaican gangster with dreads, I only then noticed that they used puppet face for the same Jamaican guy when net slides through his skin. Also I could notice so mush more details and textures on the Predator. So I was really happy to see it on better resolution then my VHS which still exists, but almost unwatchable (because of how many times I watched it). Or look at all the details of the Jungle in the Original one.
Of course it's probably killing the actual final results that creators were aiming for, but because these are my favorite movies, I love to look at all the small details I didn't notice before on VHS.

Give me Alien³ (With fixed compositing, perhaps a hybrid cut) on 4K or give me death.
