Paul W.S. Anderson gets no love from the film geek community. The guy has shown the ability to at least be semi-capable of using a camera. A decent script and his average hand brought about “Event Horizon”, which wasn’t that bad. But, you shouldn’t have to judge a filmmaker’s milieu by how he didn’t totally fuck up a project. That’s why he is FAIL!
The Blu-Ray disc for “Alien vs. Predator” is one of the first discs that really floored me. The DTS masterless audio really floored me, even though I had to process it over PCM instead of Bitstream. The color contrast in the high-grade transfer shows off what Blu-Ray can do at its finest. Colors of the same hue stand out, even when they’re layered upon one and other. There was a little bit of haze in the underground Pyramid sequences, but it lasted for a moment or two. There was nothing truly major about it.
The extras include two ported over commentaries. Then, there’s a trivia track that killed my damn eyes to read. That’s followed up with some trailers and a few other pieces that didn’t really stand out. I don’t get the purpose of this D Box Motion Control shit if 99% of the Home Theater community has no idea what it really does. Oh well, chalk up another useless technology being forced on the masses. This disc is a rental for most, a definite buy for others.
