4.0 out of 5 stars Be careful here, people..., 12 May 2004
This review is from: Predator (2 Disc Special Edition ) [1988] [DVD] (DVD)
Just a quick note to warn purchasers of this new 2-disc set that due to a foul-up by Fox it seems that many copies contain the wrong Disc One. I don't know how widespread this problem is, but in my local shop every single copy was incorrect - and, yeah, I made 'em check! :)
Due to a pressing or packaging error Disc One was the old single-disc edition of Predator - i.e. no DTS, no audio commentary, and a heavily-censored version of the film! Disc Two was correct.
Disc One SHOULD have a large picture of Arnie's face and say "Disc One" on it - the incorrect disc has a fuzzy picture of Arnie with a gun and DOES NOT say Disc One.
Seeing as the previous UK DVD release of Predator was a foul-up on Fox's part in the first place - apparently they mistakenly used a heavily-censored master intended for the German market - you would have thought they'd have taken a little more care this time around...
It's a good film, as I'm sure you already know, and it's good to see that it's finally been given a decent release in the UK - providing you've got the right disc in the pack!

Two disk set? On the page for the version of this movie which is the single disk product. I am sick of Amazon bundling reviews of various product versions all together instead of only having reviews about the product in question.

Me too, mate, me too...

When I wrote this (6 years ago!) I assumed it would only be used on the product page for the specific edition that I posted the review on - cos when you're referring to a specific problem with a specific release of the film it's kinda nonsensical to port that review over to ANY other release!

I noticed that Amazon had done the same thing with one of my other old reviews - which is why I was looking back over them all, and found they'd done it with this one as well. Not good.

Oh well, I look forward to seeing my warning about Fox's foul-up with the 2004 2-disc DVD edition of "Predator" again real soon - on the product page for the inevitable Blu-ray release of the film!

...and here it is!

Amazon need to start splitting DVD and Blu reviews off, it's a joke.
