    I know this "set" is featureless but how are the picture and sound? Are they transferred from decent prints? Despite the low price, I'm not one to just take a chance!

    I might be wrong but I think Predator is just the movie disc from the recent Special Edition release and Predator 2 is the same as the standard Predator 2 dvd so you will have the best quality releases that are available.

    Play have it for £9.99 (or thereabouts) but I don't think they're the only ones selling it for that. I just need to familiarise myself with the films before Alien vs Predator appears as I'm more of an Alien fan.

    I seem to remember that both films are fairly cheesy and not even in the same league as the Alien films. Despite that, having seen the trailer for AVP, it looks conceivable that it might be an entertaining film, doing justice to both series. It can't be that bad with Lance Henrikson and Ewen Bremner, can it?

    Think that was only the original release were it was both discs in dvd cases in a boxset, the set was re-released as both discs in a double dvd case and I am pretty sure the Predator disc is the movie disc from the Special Edition.

    Would have thought a re-release would at least contain the correct version of the film, guess we know why they are selling it for £9.99 lol

    I got the Set in January only bought it for Predator 2 since i already got the 2 disc SE of Predator. The boxsets got disc 1 from the SE editon(even says disc 1 on the dvd), so its got dts sound, an audio commentary and an easter egg. Disc 2 is Original Predator 2 dvd that as released way back when dvd first started. Both are Uncut and feature 5.1 tracks and are anamorphic widescreen, the only special feature Predator 2's got is a trailer.

    On a Side not none of the Predator films have ever been cut by the BBFC, Fox messed up the oringal release of Predator and released the cut German version over here, which lead to confucsion that Predator 2 and the new Predator releases were also cut.

    i'd still recommend getting the special edition of predator, it's a lovely 2 disc set in a nice box (if they still sell it in the digipak that is). Makes a much nicer entry in a collection IMO

    ... stick around
