You know, the funny (and sad!) thing is that the grain wasn't the problem with the original Predator release. It was the low bit-rate MPEG2 encode of an out-dated scan. Had they just released the film, grain and all, on a 50GB disc with a AVC or VC1 encode- even with the outdated transfer- I don't think J6P would've whined so much. I think the "grainy" description was J6P trying to explain something he didn't understand and the studio, unfortunately, took it to heart.
