3 Ultimate DNR EditionBrausch | 14/07/2010 | See all Brausch's reviews (187)Top 100 Reviewer Top 100 DVD Reviewer Predator has always looked dark, indistinct and very, very grainy. I don't know whether the film stock used was unsuitable for the low light and high humidity shooting conditions or what. The first blu was actually a pretty good stab at the cinematic appearance albeit with some video noise added to the grain and a low bitrate caused by a single layer disc. Presunably to save money Fox have not created a new master from a better source but have treated the old one to massive DNR, removing nearly all film grain. Consequently in some shots figures look like plastic toys especially Arnold's red shirt. Brightness and colour have been increased which gives a perceived increase in detail if not an actual one. It doesn't actually look bad except for some odd movements and the waterfall looks strange, it just doesn't look like the cinematic presentation. Most casual viewers will be satisfied with this edition but revisionism of this kind sets a worrying precedent if film companies attempt to make old films look like new ones instead of accepting that some films have their limitations and should be respected.
