@ David's Creation

Thats funny because ive always felt they were probably all the same super dark print, just that it doesnt bother some people. Never put much stock in the theory that some were good and some were bad.

The trailers were fine, things look properly lit.

I just got my replacement set.  I compared the old and new discs.  There is absolutely no difference in the brightness level.

(But Jesse does fall in half like she's supposed to, so money well spent in my bloodthirsty opinion.)

I don't think there was any difference suggested between blu and blu in regards to brightness (just a difference between dvd to blu), but I agree it's nice to have the 2 dropped scenes restored in the unrated seamless branching.  :)

I have not seen this unrated Blu-ray version. I shall tonight!


Much better. But still has its head shaking moments. 
Btw it was clear for me to see that The shuriken was spinning the wrong way for it to lift the blonde chick off the ground when it hit her. Lol

The part that still gets me to this day is the Alien in the Backyard. And then in the window.  Still scary for me.

Yes, agreed! Still, it's amazing to me how much the combination of the bluray and the the unrated cut improved this movie!

I disagree!  Actually I pulled out my forensics hat, watched it again frame by frame, and concluded it was indeed spinning the correct way my friend.



Wolf pulled out two Shurikens, one in each hand. The way he threw the Shuriken in his left hand, it would not scoop up a victim.

However, the Shuriken Wolf threw in his right hand was an underhand throw, spun in the correct scooping direction through the Alien, and finished in the correct spin scooping up Jesse against the wall.

Indeed! You knew it was coming but still scary regardless! :o

The shuriken goes up then down and up again.

Confirmed Predator on the grassy knoll in Dealey Plaza.

The hive's construction is excellent.

The laser mines, two plasma casters, the whip.
Wolf's design.

Everything else is pretty much retched.

The plasma pistol wasn't too bad though how the hell it is powered is the question.

I don't think it'd be too outlandish for the casters to have some sort of energy reservoir.

It did have to charge up at least, which it doesn't when it's mounted.

Honestly, I like the idea of the Predator's having hand-held energy weapons anyway. I always liked the Plasma Pistols in the AvP games and I do dig the design of Requiem's too.
