Re: Predator 2 june 9th

The completist in me might pick this one up. At least the cover art is better than the 1-disc DVD I have, and more features too. Hoping for $19.99 or less ...

I think this actually wound up being cheaper when I got it from Amazon UK in January. It was something like $22 US shipped. A rare region-free Fox title. Looks pretty nice too.

Re: Predator 2 june 9th

Well, now I don't have to buy the UK version. Isn't this missing deleted scenes from a prior release, or am I just imagining they were on the old SE?

I already got the UK version, but I'm glad it's getting a US release.

Re: Predator 2 june 9th

Yeah, I have the UK version already and it's badass. Probably cheaper too, especially with the current Amazon UK sale. I just checked the extras and it seems the U.S. disc may have a few more extras as I can't fiind any trailers or the "Much Worse", "Thrill Of The Hunt" or "Jungle Revised" bullet points on the UK disc. All the other stuff is there though.

It's sad to see the nice treatment Predator 2 is receiving from Fox when one considers the shoddy treatment given to Predator.

I still consider Predator 2 to be a guilty pleasure and will add it to the collection. Let's hope Fox revisits the original.

Re: Predator 2 june 9th

I love Predator 2 so I will def. pick this up on release date.

Cover art could be better but anybody remember how bad the old 1-disc release was?

Good sequel. Been eyeing the UK version but may hold off for this instead.

As I remember, he's second-in-command to Gary Busey's character.

Re: Predator 2 june 9th

Yeah, he doesn't have too much screen time. The line I remember most is when Glover yells to Busey's character "Who the hell are you?" and he steps in Glover's face and says "The last person in the world you want to fuck with"

Yep, the UK disc is damn loud to be sure! Quite the workout for your surround system.
