    Somehow I highly doubt that The Mouse can do Predator justice at all.

    I think it worked in the first film because the merc guys besides Arnold were kind of d-bags anyway. We were supposed to like and identify with the motley misfits of the 2018 film, so their toilet humor didn’t come off as well.

    Arnold’s team were basically expendables, now the 2018 crew were first class - d-bags. :D

    I mean, they’re all basically fodder for the creature to kill off. To me, the mercs of the original film weren’t meant to be particularly likable, which I thought was a good narrative choice. But the vibe I got from the 2018 flick is that we were meant to like the screwball cast more. Could just be my misinterpretation though.

    Original crew were real mercenaries ( 1987), liked the characters myself. The 2018 motley crew? I didn’t find the script funny, or the characters endearing. So I’m going for the 1987 asss kicking guys, with bad table manners. :)

    What about The Thing ( John Carpenter ) how does that compare with Alien.

    Original Predator even though probably every kid for ten blocks seen it together and all say I fell asleep.I did not fall asleep,I was trying to stay comfortable in those backbreaking chairs in that second run theater!
    As a young kid I was underwhelmed with the original Alien but Aliens the sequel was huge to me.The other Predators and Alien III were awful.I really liked the Alien prequels quite a bit I must say.

    Its a coin toss for Alien 3 if the Dir cut from the blurry, or Predator 2

    Good news for Predator fans Disney wants to reboot Predator with Robert Rodriguez directing and Quentin Tarantino ( hopefully) doing the script. Disney wants to bypass Shane Black’s effort.

    Didn’t mind RR production on 2010 Predators.
    But.. with a bigger budget, maybe we can get part two of (2010) Predators with Royce and Isabelle leaving the planet.

    See Marvel Comics have bought the rights for Alien & Predator. Could see The Predator in MCU. Ha! Disney own MCU now.

    Really? Wow. Mixed feelings for me. Predator is not a super hero, nor really a villain.. From this perspective it seems to be a major step back.

    On the other hand, the Predator creature has been seriously wasted overall. The original film was a great statement. The second movie has its fans all these years later, but as would become par for the course, it was largely a wasted opportunity. Predator coming to a city should have torn it up. Instead we got voodoo. None of the Alien v. Predator movies have been worthy, imo. They're terrible, actually. Then we had Predators - more rubbish. And the last movie, which they really should have had the good sense to burn before anyone saw it, was a dud.

    I was always nervous when they combined Alien with Predator, the whole comic book mentality does nothing for either character in my opinion. I'd of liked a darker path for both. If they put Predator in a super hero movie - well, nothing good will come of it......

    Disney / Marvel has already got a Predator comic with Iron Man’s head cut off blood spurting out. A taster methinks.Maybe Disney wants to get dirty.

    Disney "The Dark Side Division" for adults only. :righton:
     
  21. Yes...why would they do that ? Sane thing in ' Covenant '
    " The air is breathable! I'm taking off my helmet ! "

    Even more stupid is the idea they are going to stay on this totally unknown planet ( with its breathable air ) after the company has invested billions of dollars finding a specific planet and outfitting a ship with people to colonize it.

    Prefer the unrated AVP ;Alien vs Predator version which is 8 minutes longer than the theatrical cut.
