Predator had a good run on DVD. Plenty of extras, some nice special editions. Predator had a bad run on Blu-Ray. First, a lousy update for the first release pulled straight from the DVD source (basically), then the infamous ‘Waxwork’ release that came next.
It featured possibly the most egregious DNR from the generation. This week though, the movie (and Predator 2!) is being release on UHD.

Above, you can see the good news. The film is remastered, for real this time. Looks good. No word as yet on Predator 2, but hopefully it’ll be just as good. The blue slaughterhouse scenes should be a good workout for HDR.
