    This film was originally released with mono surrounds and every dvd has just slightly stereoized said rear. Atmos probably isn't an option.

    I suspect you are right.

    I was thinking back to when I watched this film on a loop. The VHS days back in England. I wish I could remember what that release looked like. I do remember putting a cheap cassette tape recorder up to the TV speaker to record Alan Silvestri's end credits. When I listen to the soundtrack today (either the Varese Sarabande or the Intrada expanded release), I do sometimes miss the fading sounds of the onscreen helicopters that always came with that home made recording I made :)

    It had a 70mm blowup release back in the eighties, that mix would have been 6 channel and could hsve been used as a source for the blu ray and UHD editions.

    I found an image of the VHS edition I'm pretty sure was my first exposure to the film (I found this image on Dread Central).
    Predator-VHS-1.

    Two of those channels are mono LFE clones. Mix is actually 4.1.

    Neil I usually spend 99% of my time here on the movie forums & somehow just forgot you did these. Going to be a regular reader on your reviews.

    Looking forward to reading more. :popcorn:

    Thanks for the great review. Man, I got the "Predator" and "The Avengers" 4K/UHD titles today. I'm going to be a busy over the next week or so.
