In Theaters Now – The Predator

Once again, an alien species of hunters comes to Earth but this time it’s not trophies that they’re after. Can our ragtag crew of soldiers with PTSD, a biologist, and a kid with super autism stop this threat? Yes, obviously. Is it any good? Ehhhh.

  1. Jeez, I didn’t even know this was made. Sahne Black, co-writer and director, was at one time the HOTTEST screenwriter in Hollywood after he penned Lethal Weapon. That reign didn’t last long. I see he is doing Doc Savage next. Not enthused.

  2. For what it’s worth, I assumed the whole “THEY’RE GONNA INVADE” idea was just Project Stargazer being morons, and in reality the Predators showing up more frequently was the equivalent of 19th century big game hunters hearing that a notable game animal is dying out, so they all rush in to get a trophy for their wall before the species goes extinct.

    Hence, I assumed the “good” Predator was essentially a conservationist trying to keep one of his favored game animals around for future generations to hunt, and the”gift” would be the secrets of clean energy, or technology to reverse environmental damage from pollution – because he doesn’t give a shit about any particular human surviving, he just wants humans as a species to still be around.

    Then he gave them a suit of Iron Man armor,and I threw up my hands. At this point, I’m assuming that the “good” Predator just really hated the idea of people who weren’t him being allowed to hunt humans and was metaphorically poisoning the hunting ground for future Predators.
