    Synopsis


    Predator
    Dutch (Arnold Schwarzenegger) has a code of honor which he will not violate, even when his life depends on it. Paradoxically, his code of honor gives him the backbone to survive as a military special forces operative when he is sent on a covert mission to rescue another group which was sent in to assist some nefarious U.S. government plan in a Latin American country. Once there, he encounters an old army buddy (Carl Weathers) who has gotten too deep in the CIA's good graces for Dutch's comfort. When he and his team go into the jungle to rescue the others, they get involved in a pitched battle with local guerillas, but they are more than capable of besting these vicious fighters. However, not long after that, they encounter signs that the equally capable men they were sent to rescue were all killed unawares and in an unusually gruesome fashion. Given their training, it should have been impossible for anyone to best all of these commando warriors. Soon, the men from Dutch's own team get picked off one by one, as they grow aware that they are up against something uncanny, not of this world, something that is hunting them for sport. Why? Because their skills make them worthy opponents for the perfectly camouflaged Predator. This carefully paced action movie was given poor reviews by many movie critics, but was sufficiently satisfying for its (largely male) audiences that a successful sequel (Predator 2) was released in 1990. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

    Predator 2
    This special effects-heavy science fiction sequel moves the action from the first film's Amazon forest to the urban jungle of L.A. Danny Glover stars as Lt. Mike Harrigan, an LAPD detective baffled by his latest case, the ritualistic slaughter of several drug dealers by a devastating killer who leaves no traces. As Harrigan and his partners, Danny Archuletta (Ruben Blades), Leona Cantrell (Maria Conchita Alonso), and Jerry Lambert (Bill Paxton), try to figure out who or what killed the criminals, FBI investigator Stephen Keyes (Gary Busey) attempts to warn the team away from investigating further. When two of his team are killed in a particularly grisly way, Harrigan uncovers the truth -- their quarry is an alien creature that hunts humans for sport. Attracted to violence, its latest choice of prey is gun-toting Jamaican drug dealers. Keyes and his team know all about the nasty extraterrestrial and its bloody pastime because they've been studying it for ten years, and they've come up with a possible means of dispatching the beast. When that plan backfires, however, it comes down to Harrigan and an extremely irritated otherworldly foe, slugging it out in a rooftop confrontation. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

      The ULTIMATE HUNTER EDITION!

      Posted
      CinemaDenizen

      Well, I've been collecting Blu-rays for a short time now, and finally got the new Full HD TV set-up, and then starting re-watching some older titles on DVD.... now, I told myself that I wouldn't be making the effort to be re-buying many old titles that I already own, but after seeing a lot of the "classics" again, and in comparison to the new HD format, all I have to say is... yikes! A lot of them suffer badly from transfers that came from a much dirtier and damaged film source. The first "Predator"(one of my all-time faves) on DVD is one that is WAY to sub-par in video quality for my tastes. SO MANY black specks and scratches pop-up, that it's flat-out distracting to watch now by today's standards. 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 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! So, I am here(after putting you all through this painful rant) to confirm that the version that Best Buy is currently selling is the proper 2-Disc Pack, with the much more superior UHE version of "Predator"... and, of course, a great copy of its equally entertaining sequel as well! While some still confirm that there are copies floating around out there that do still contain the 2008 version, I can say with certainty that the one I bought this week at BB does include the correct version.

      Disc 2 Not xbox friendly

      Good movies, not xbox friendly. The 1st one played fine, then 2nd movie just goes black, thought it was an issue with the bluray disc, so I exchanged it for another one and the same thing happened. Had to buy a reg bluray player and it works fine. Apparently it's not the xbox fault, the disc format doesn't play in this region whereas the first disc played fine.

      The 1st one is a classic and a must have for any Arnold fan that everyone should own. I also liked the 2nd even though alot of people didnt. I had the standard version of the 1st Predator but it was nice to have both of them in a Blu ray combo. If you like manly testosterone filled action and scifi then you will like both of these.

      Got this at a great sale price. Very happy to own this action classic as a 2 disc set. Bluray quality is great, although you can tell some of the original footage remains grainy. Otherwise, it's still a great set to have. I still like the original with Arnold in it versus the 2nd with Danny Glover though.

      This release is a must if you like the predator (and possiblely alien) franchises. Nothing can beat the first film with Arnie but the sequel is great too. Definitely a great buy at $9.99!

      Unfortunately since this movie is older there is no digital code. However the Quality is remastered and looks very solid on a 4K TV in 1080p especially for 30+ year old movie.

      The original was a great Arnold Schwarzenegger movie from back in the day and Danny Glover was fantastic in Predator 2. Two great movies for a great price. Thank you Best Buy!
