Fuck I still need the GOT Blu-rays. Its so obvious so much work and love has gone into its presentation (id really like the House Stark bestby editions with the free keychain and the wolf cover
) - and I hear the quality is astounding. ive seen the 1080i transmissions and couldn't think how they could be bettered but ive seen a few screens from the blu-ray and fuck I don't know how they did it but they really are ^_^
Plus I really want to give HBO all my money so they can continue churning out new episodes. Waiting for 2014 for season 3 is going to be fucking horrendous >_<
And I hate the look of Predator in form of the hunter edition. Alot of fan sites went fucking crazy over it when it was first previewed as the picture was noticeably clearer (and brighter) but to me its everything thats wrong with high definition. Hopefully a disc that will serve as a warning from history to any other old film getting a restoration in the future. Its a completely over engineered look that removes an incredible amount of close up detail (especially noticeable on characters faces -arnie looks like a wax model) that the source material has only a passing resemblance of its former self and while the original blu-ray release wasn't going to win any awards for its pq id take that over the monstrosity of the hunter edition any day. The film and its dark encroaching jungle scenes suited the dark and grainy picture but now its bright and breezy and it all looks like it was filmed just off the side of a motorway. 9/10, dave, really? Really? 1 off for characters that looked photoshopped in?
Heres a direct comparison.http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_CpWdX0vhroA/TBoiCIArJkI/AAAAAAAACTQ/s1RMAqcgDPk/s1600/Predator+Blu-ray+Comparison.jpg
The left piture from the hunter edition looks more like a target render than a real person.
Will debase self for credits.
