    The first Predator movie with Ahnold was testosterone-filled schlocky fun. It quickly went downhill from there.

    But, of course, I'll still watch this one, as stupid as the premise sounds.

    I was trying to make things dramatic and fun for lurkers, and you couldn't just play along.

    The last Predator film I saw was Predator 2. In the theater. Didn't care for that one and couldn't care less about any subsequent ones.

    The original Ah-nuld film is still pretty friggin' awesome, though.

    I really liked Predator, Predator II, and Predators.

    The last movie, The Predator, was pretty damn awful.

    Hopefully they can revive the franchise. It's hard to move forward with a concept that captures the spirit of the original while adding quality content. The Predator failed at that entirely.

    I liked predator as a great action movie with some really good tension. The predator was a scary hunter.

    Predator 2 was pretty good, but it had some flaws. Danny Glover just failed in his action scenes. I thought the predator scenes were chilling and the kills were bloody and creepy like the first one. The supporting cast was good, and the city backdrop was new. Danny Glover just seemed like he would be dead if he did what he did, and he does not carry the the lead action hero well.

    Predators was easily forgotten.

    This one probably won't be much.

    Fuck all the Aliens vs Predator shit.

    I wanna see Predator vs The Crow.

    Guy/gal loses their spouse and their life being ripped apart and worn as a trophy by a Pred, then comes back for vengeance.

    You could probably get that done in the comics.

    Nope. Live action or nothing. And one of the actors has to die in a prop accident, or it doesn't count.

    It opens with Predators killing Jesus and putting his body in a tomb on their ship and leaving Earth. Then three days later the tomb is open and he's the one hunting them. :jesus:

    Jesus leads a large group of trump evangelicals into the jungle to hunt the predator with their MTG 50 cal rifles only to have the entire group slaughtered. The twist at the end is:


    It would get me back to the theater.
