New to Blu: November 10-15

The latest in the sci-fi franchise, Predators, has had stellar reviews from US Blu-ray critics.

Hi-Def Digest rated it 5/5 for both its HD video and audio: “Very literally perfect from a technical stand point … The reason why the 1080p AVC MPEG-4 transfer (aspect ratio: 2.35:1) is so great is that it appears to be a direct-from-the-digital-source transfer.”

Blu-ray.com thought the transfer “exceptional in every respect” and AV Forums “generally excellent”.

The extras, which include a commentary by director Nimrod Antal and producer Robert Rodriguez, also were praised for being comprehensive and imaginative.

Also new are How to Make Love to a Woman, Eden of the East, Sengoku Basara: Samurai Kings: Season 1, Eric Clapton: Crossroads Guitar Festival 2010, West Coast Seattle Boy: The Jimi Hendrix Anthology, Mahler: Symphony No. 2 in C Minor Resurrection, Mahler: Symphony No. 6, and Handel: Messiah (Staged Version).

New on the back-catalogue front are Alien Anthology, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, The Man in the Iron Mask and seasons two and three of Underbelly (as well as a triple-season set).
