Two pretty solid Chuck films. I wonder why these aren't Walmart exclusives? Not that I'm complaining... I'll consider those titles when they dip.

Not sure if this is a reissue or they redid the transfer? :?

Highly doubt that it's the latter. Also they should have made back cover the front cover IMO.

Given the apparent heavy DVNR issues with Predator I'll stick with my DVD for now.

I gather it's pretty lacklustre though, and doesn't have the extras that are on the DVD. I won't buy Predator until it gets a proper remaster.

It's overly grainy - BUT preferable to the extreme DNR job. I can live without the extras.

The original Predator BD is miles better than the DVD. It looks perfectly good. It would've been nice to have some but I overall don't care about extras either.

They fixed the grain in the re-release ;).

That's not gonna happen for years and years. They've already "remastered" and "re-released" it as far as Fox are concerned.

That gag would make more sense if "BUT preferable to the extreme DNR job" wasn't the second part of my sentence.

I'd buy the 3rd and 4th parts as they're a lot of fun.

The 2nd is nastier but I'd give it a another go if MGM release it Unrated (fat chance!)

True, yeah I know. It's just not that bad though. I've seen films much grainier.

Olive Films are the distributor. Better chance of it being unrated from an indie.
