Halfway through the movie and I decided to take some shots to showcase the imagery of this movie. There are a lot of dark scenes with low APL and this will be a torture test for most projectors out there. Lumagen with good tone-mapping on my Sony VW870ES helped but this movie will look even better on OLED TV for sure! I love the cinematography and the breathtaking scenic views in this movie…very sharp and detailed.

Just finished the whole movie…This is definitely one of the better Predator movies. Comparable to the original Predator movie starring Arnold. Highly recommended.

The Dolby Atmos mix was pretty awesome too even though is on a streaming platform and the bitrate is constrained to 640kbps in DD+. I will be getting the physical disc when it released.

The runtime of this movie is rather short at 1hr 40mins including credits rolling. It’s a simple plot but it’s a very entertaining movie. It really brings back the vibe I felt when I first watched Predator with Arnold in the jungle.

Rating: 4/5 stars

Haven’t watched this movie, nice movies been wanting to save it for when the HT is done :sweat_smile: :sweat_smile:

But was thinking that this opens up an endless potential for the franchise. They can basically make a Predator movie set in ANY well know historical timeline… some examples of what i mean…

  • Predator during the Egyptian Pharoah rule
  • Predator during the dinosaurs time, just before the asteroid hit 65 million years ago
  • Predator during the Chinese warring states era (Romance of 3 kingdoms) almost like Great Wall movie
  • Predator during the the European dark Ages
  • Predator during WW2 battles in Nazi Germany
  • Predator during Vietnam war
  • Predator during 1991 Desert Storm.

Haha getting ludicrous :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

Do you guys steaming prey via using nvidia ?

Yes. There is actually many different types of predators in the comic strip. The problem with Predators is the interaction with humans on earth. How many iterations need to be retold and how to keep the storyline fresh is a real challenge. Prey is a refreshing take back to its roots where predator utilise jungle as the hunting ground. Now instead of having Arnold, we have a female protagonist instead.

To me, it’s acceptable, not too shabby.

Watched whole movie tonight in Dolby Vision. Definitely one of the best predator movie, other than the first one. I actually left Dynamic Tone Mapping off throughout the movie on the LG HU810 as there were few specular highlights and many dark scenes. I would think that the average light level (MaxFALL) to be somewhere under 500 nits. Looked perfect with DTM off
