I was moved to tears.

Prey rules. Disclaimer: I’ve never not thought a predator movie ruled.

I saw enough of the 2nd to decide I didn’t care for it. Saw Alien vs Predator and thought that was bad. Didn’t see any of the rest.

All predator movies rule. So my opinion of prey probably isn’t valuable to anyone who doesn’t like the predator series


Also AVP doesn’t count. Not canon.

The last sentence is a critical clarification.

Prey is awesome. I rewatched the original the next day. Still amazing. I just love how every line is badass. 'I don't got time to bleed.' Though I had forgotten, somehow, how big that guy's girlfriend's vagina was.

Does Predator 2 really rule? I haven't seen it forever. And I skipped Topher Grace Predator because I had concerns.

Predator is just in my DNA. I hunted the predator in the woods behind my house all the time as a kid.

But, "if it bleeds, we can kill it". Ohhhhh yeah.

Didn't they say that when talking about the French translator guy? I thought they said get to the chopper as in log chopper?
Original is so good, Prey went back to the more thriller/horror aspects of the original that the rest pretty much ignored.

The all English delivery took me out a little but I understand the reasoning and that the English was supposed to be "commanche". Her mjolnir level axe control felt a little questionable and some of the fight choreography felt a little too modern. All in all, they're nits on a very good movie.
There was setup and payoff, no unnecessary b-plots, fun fights, and they were shot really well.

Exciting news imo
I wonder if there was a single person in the world who was clamouring for another Fletch movie. I'm glad Jon Hamm is starring in something that'll allow him to show his comedy chops, but Fletch?
