The old release has bad compression. The new one is scrubbed. I wouldn't waste any time defending either one at this point. Predator deserves better. Maybe Sony can buy it and do a M4K release.

It takes a special kind of stupid to make a blu-ray look worse than the DVD.

Ownership doesn't matter, what matters is whether the comparison shots are authentic. If they are, then he's right. It's not impressive, we've seen far more detailed transfers for this type of film...
