The best thing about the original movie is that it has the biggest action stars of that era, they all act like they're invincible - nothing phases them, typical 80s shlock in the first act. Then when the Predator actually turns up, all these massive, testosterone fueled men become absolutely terrified and act more human. It's fantastic

The first one is an absolute masterpiece. We knew these were battle hardened men who, as a group, had seen just about all there was to see in war. However, once they realized they were fighting something something that was virtually unstoppable, we could see them individually began to deal with the knowledge they were most likely going to die. The second one was really good. Showing a Predator in a metropolis environment was awesome. It carried over from the first one with the story arc that in the hottest years, a Predator will come to earth to hunt. It did have some slap-stick comedy, and some of the lines were corny, but overall I though it was good. Detective Murtaugh using the Krull blade to kill the Predator was cool. Having all those other Predators appear suddenly to take their comrade’s body away and then giving Murtaugh Jack Sparrow’s musket was a really cool way to show respect from one warrior to another. And then there were all the other movies. I don’t even want to acknowledge them; but the AVP mashups were absolutely horrendous. They took what could have been some epic fights and story arcs, and completely destroyed two franchises.

Predators was pretty great and I really like how it expanded their lore. but I kinda disagree with AVP, I know it wasn't perfect but It wasn't the movie that ruined aliens for me (in fact its the better universe than the aliens one) and I liked it again for the lore. The idea of the predators using aliens as a challenging target to earn their next part in life was awesome. And it was done in a way that makes aliens canon in the predator universe and not the other way around. AVP2 is however an inexcusable shit show whose only big attraction was a hybrid that didn't even turn out or make sense.

I liked predators, I think even the yakuza sword fighting thing makes sense. They established the predators wanted to improve their killing capabilities and didnt even mind if it meant putting them at a disadvantage so its pretty believable that a predator would fight "honorably", and the yakuza showing respect for the katana and probably thinking back to the samurai that used it, channeling his heritage to take a last stand in an already hopeless situation. I just think it worked. Also just in general all the characters made adult decisions and it was pretty consistent throughout, even the doctor serial killer actually caught me off guard and was a cool twist. I agree brody may not have been the choice for a main hero, but I like the character overall

My simple take on this whole issue (which is found in the title of your video), is basically that the classic ''Movie Theatre'' format for film just isn't as relevant these days anymore, thus resulting in a barrage of cheap, mediocre fan-fiction sequels, such as these. The future of cinematic entertainment seems to be more geared toward the ''Netflix-style'' series genre, for some reason.

Dead on. The only thing I would say different is that Predators was not that bad, it introduced some genuinely interesting ideas, and left the ending open to a possibility of a great sequel. The idea of an alien world that Predators use to hunt on, with prey from all over the universe is super interesting. It’s something that can be explored in other plot lines. The movie mostly worked cause it took it back to the original atmosphere of a claustrophobic jungle and an unseen enemy (maybe minus that one sword fight with the Yakuza guy).

The best part of the original is they acted like real people. They joked around in the beginning because they knew they could beat the terrorist people. It was easy.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who liked the second one. I was introduced to aliens and predators through aliens vs predators back when I was kid in the late 2000's and thought it was pretty cool. I don't know if id like it the same now, but it got me to go look for more movies which lead me to find the second predator movie at my local library. Thought that one was great honestly and I didn't understand why people seemed to dislike it so much when I looked it up online later. Then I would up seeing predators which was okay as I recall, not great, but not horrible or anything, just alright. Expanded some of the lore which was nice but it didn't match up to the second movie for me. Then I would up watching the whole aliens franchise when I was in high school which was a real blast. First one was scary but good, second was a kickass action film that was my favorite out of the series, third one was okay but I'm not going to go out of my way to watch it unless I'm rewatching the whole aliens series, forth one was....it was weird and I didn't like how Ripley was portrayed...but I don't recall disliking the movie...it was just kind of weird. Ill have to come back to it sometime in the future and give it another watch. Then some months ago my friend was over with his playstation and he had a membership on some streaming platform and they had predator for free so we watched it and damn was that good! Started out like an 80s action flick and turned into this super intense survival movie. It felt almost like one really long action scene and we loved it and id have to say its probably my new favorite for the predator series. Honestly Drinker thanks for making these videos, really makes me look back and think about my time with all these old films and reminds me I should really sit down and rewatch some of them!

And no, unlike the first one, it did not scare the shit out of me. I would actually pay to go to the theater and watch this film, as the drinker does his narration from the side of the screen. It's that entertaining to listen to him. Could be a new cult thing to do.

I saw a sampling of the Predator and Alien literary works, believe it or not there is a Batman vs Predator that is technically canon. Honestly, this collection of movies, and I do mean all of them, is pretty representative of the literary works. I gave up on cohesion with this IP looooooong ago, somewhere around the third movie in the prison factory. It was pretty much evident at that point that there were too many authors doing their own thing with no one holding them in check.

Alien Vs Predator is actually a very good movie . Its fun , has lots of cool moments of the predator fighting the alien , actually has a good female main character ( unlike most movies ) , the lore is really cool , the ending is badass , and it doesn't overstay its welcome . It sets out to be childish popcorn fun and it achieves that perfectly . Good film , watch with friends while drunk

The problem with the original predator is that it was too perfect. You have a cast of larger than life badasses who've played many roles of near invincible tough guys, playing again larger than life tough guys, suddenly getting picked apart easily. It so perfectly set the tone of, "Oh shit! Jessie Ventura with a minigun dies easily to this thing? Arnold has to run from it? This is a real serious threat." These are a team of elite soldiers who earlier in the movie swept through a camp of baddies like butter, almost playfully. For them to be so easily picked off sets the tone of danger and horror. The problem is how do top some of the best soldiers on the planet, played by some of the most renowned tough guys of the time and still drive home the feeling of dread and the heroes being outmatched? In most sequels you gotta up the ante because when horror is involved because you can't really use the same tactics. People have already seen the first movie so they now know its a predator. They really started on such a high note that made it nearly impossible to follow. That said the sequel wasn't too bad. Switching to an environment thats closer to what we actually live in as opposed to jungle wasn't a bad idea. Bring home the horror as it were. Maybe I'm biased having grown up in the 80s, weened on macho 80s action schlock but I don't feel they will ever top it.

The yakuza duel scene makes sense. The predators have been studying and hunting humans since the medieval Ages. In Lawerence F hide out you can see a samurai helmet. As a hunter it would be a massive honour kill to fight your prey on equal terms. Also I thought it was a good tribute to the original when the Native American waited the predator slicing him his chest.

The only major issues are within the first 15-20 minutes. Dutch is pissed that Dillon didn’t tell them that Hopper and his old team got killed in the Forest by the rebels? He called it a “meat grinder” and said Dillon put his team in great danger. But by this point they one-sidedly killed all the rebels so what is he pissed about? He didn’t know about the Predator. They thought the rebels killed Hopper and his team and skinned them. The same rebels he just killed easily. So why is he even mad at Dillon? Because of a slight lie to get him to go on a dangerous mission (that they completed easily)? The angry dialogue between Dutch and Dillon honestly doesn’t make any damn sense. They capture Anna for intel but treat her like a civilian even though she’s a former guerilla who put a gun to Dutch’s head at the beginning. She’s kind of just forgotten about plot-wise.

One word, rewrites. I believe the original plot, was for the main characters to work with bad blood predators. Bad blood basically means outlaws. There are a few set pictures that show some of the cast on top of a military vehicle with said predators. Would have been a lot better than this steaming hot pile of shit.

No, I don't have the slightest idea how he became a US tank commander, but I think he explains it somewhere.

Predator 2 had the BEST opening scene of any movie with the gang shootings. "So where the hell is special weapons?" "They are still tied up in the shootout at St Pedros, getting their asses kicked by the jamaicans." Epic scene setting with chilling hints at the LA Riots in the 90s.

A predator crashes in Iowa and being horribly injured, he passes out in front of a farm house. The old farming couple take him in and treat his wounds, however he decides not to kill them as they are boring prey. However living with them he starts to see the couple as pets, cute and powerless before him to the point it’s endearing. Therefor when another predator comes to rescue him and attempts to murder the couple, the crashed predator fights to protect his pets and accidentally becomes a hero to the people of Iowa and begins to see a life outside of being a predator. Therefor he puts on a blue spandex suit with a S on the chest that stands for hope.

Predator 2 was based on the comics and there was an Aliens vs Predator strip in the early 90's that was pretty good as well although it wasn't anything like the film. I think there was a lone Predator trapped while some loon in the Army was breeding aliens as weapons which then got out of control and the protagonists work with the Predator to survive. Can't remember if they did or not, I think I left school and stopped buying comics.

Predator 2 was a good movie, and would have been just fine as a standalone. Predators with adrian brody was also good, I thought it was a reasonably well-done remake of the original, but it stood on its own and didnt rely solely on nostalgia and character cameos to cover up a bad script (looking at you, new star wars.) AvP was awful. AvP 2 was also awful, but the only redeeming quality was that the hot chick love interest died - which never happens in movies that cheesy.

Predator 2 gave me nightmares as a child. It was directed beautifly, the scene I'm talking about that horrified me as a child is when Danny Glover goes into the train tunnel when you see the predator decapitate a homeless guy, you see it in the shadows in the distance and you hear the predator scream. All the decapitations, it was incredibly gory. A million times better then the awful sequels that came years later. Such generic characters and they tried recreating the original film but you just kind of want all the characters to die. All the sequels after 2 are a pile of generic poop.

Some of the finest US Marines I ever met weren't born in America. I haven't encountered an Irish one, but there are a bunch of foreign born Asian and Latinos throughout the ranks of the USMC. I'm not sure if they became citizens and joined the Marines, or if they joined the Marines and then became citizens though. I had a Central American First Sergeant that, to be honest, I kind of wish I was, or could've become. Top 5% Marines are something else. The dude came out of the jungle as a penniless peasant, and defended this country as an NCO god for 30 years. He's forgotten more about combat than most people will ever learn. Legend. (Oh, crap.
