    I don't mind saying that I was quite displeased when I read that a great feature packed version of 'Predator' was being planned for R2. And I remember Peter saying that at the moment their were no plans for a 'Predator' SE here because they just released a DTS version earlier this year.
    I certainly hope this is not still the case. I see NO reason why we, the R1 people, can't have this SE also.
    R2 gets alot of things that I let slide, an anamorphic transfer of 'Armageddon' for one, and the 'Buffy' box sets, which we are getting, but at a much slower pace than R2. But reading about all that great stuff on the 'Predator' SE just broke the camels back for me, and I felt it was time to speak up.

    I would like to know why Region 1 isn't getting a SE release, as well. Also, I'd like to know if the Region 2 transfer is the same as the current Region 1 DTS release.

    I just read in the software area that someone mentioned that the R2 'Predator' was cut somehow. If this is the case than fine, i'll buy this 2 disc SE for the extras, and keep my current dts version.
    Just give us those great extras, please!

    Robert, so sorry about that, I wasn't aware that I wasn't allowed to do that. My apologies.
    I had no idea that kind of thing was a no no, really.
    You live, you learn I guess.[​IMG]

    According to some sites, that R2 Predator is indeed coming out R1, sometime in 2002. Great news indeed, here are the specs for those who want:

    This would be a real shame if Region 1 was left out of a Predator SE. I recently purchased this title and I would gladly re-purchase this in the form of a SE with no problem.

    How about fully restoring Predator under the supervision of the DP and John McTiernan while you're at it, please?

    Fully remixed DTS 5.1 (24/96), or DTS-ES Discrete 6.1 track this time around. Really bring this classic monster movie to life! I'd buy it!

    I strongly agree.

    This SE desperately needs an R1 release. I hope Fox will release it later this year.
