Looks like April 15th is going to be an Arnold day. If these titles hold up to Fox's other recent releases they should be good.

Commando has probably more one liners per minute than any other action movie of all time, and they are all classic!

Let off some steam Benedict.

But yeah, I'll probably just keep the DVD. Predator sounds like a buy though.

What's with all the Mpeg 2 on Fox's new releases? Are these just the old encodes that they were preping a year ago before they went AWOL?

True lies would also be nice. the release i have on the newest standars DVD is really nice, i hope FOX pulls out all the stops for this BD.

Blu Ray winner by way of knockout in the third round.

HD DVD ducks, and just so you know they were not 1080P on all models.

Predator = NICE!!

Schwarzenegger = The man!

MPEG-2 and minimal extras = :-(

I hope The Predator is featured on at least a 50GB disc.. If so I wouldn't be bothered by the MPEG-2 PQ so much...

50GB + MPEG-2 = is appreciatable in my book but 25GB and MPEG-2 = No go (unless it's low in price)

No offence but if my normal 2disc special edition dvd has all these amazing features why cant a blu ray 25gb disc have them? if fox cant fit them why dont they use a 50gb disc!! Think i'll wait for a special edition blu ray thanks

"mpeg2is not a good codec all mpeg2 codecs is very bad only yhe animation its gooed i wil not
purches mpeg2 codecs"

First learn to speak english... Unless it is not your native language! Then your OK. Second go
watch Crank.


"Mpeg 2 and VC 1 are identical except for 1 paramitor changed by Mircosoft. This codac will make
the movie exactly the same quality as HD DVD. As we all learned, copying an HD DVD to a Blu-ray
disc means they will be exactly the same quality in every way. I recomend buying movies in AVC as
the bit rate is much higher giving more colours and shades, better with dark pictures and fast
moviing action. Lets use this form to let the studios know their not going to sell us the high
resolution copy of the DVD they have on file, but have to remaster the movie in AVC which is far
better suited for Blu-ray. Other wise they will start bring out special additions in a few years after
they remaster them in AVC, in order to sell us the same films all over again. Lets not be the
suckers they think we are."

New Line encoded Shoot 'Em Up in VC-1 with a Bit rate at times close to 50... I didn't know MPEG-
2 could do that!

I want to buy these titles but I'm going to pass over the MPEG-2 codec usage, which makes me mad because I love the Schwarzenegger flicks with the exception of "Last Action Hero".

I bought "Predator" on DVD when it first hit. It was a poor transfer that was highly grainy. Shortly thereafter, they re-released it with DTS Audio support but I forget now if they made a better transfer.

It is high time that the studios fully embrace AVC as the preferred codec and finally dump both MPEG-2 and VC-1 from all future releases. Our platform was the superior HD disc format and it is high time that the studios take advantage of it.

Recently, I rented "Total Recall" on Blu-ray and it is terribly grainy. It needs a new film transfer/digital scrubbing and a new AVC encoding job to boot.

im not fussed about the codecs as long as the picture is amazing and has lossless audio. What annoys me is they dont use the full capacity 50gb and put all the extra features that they already have out on dvds. It doesnt give you much of an incentive to replace the special edition dvds just for better picture and sound, because you would lose all of these extras!!

if they include the special features that are already on the special edition dvds, alot more people would be enclined to upgrade.
