Default Predators

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1424381/

Got to say, it could be fantastic or it could be absolutely dreadful. However, I do have high hopes for this film as the producers and writers have said themselves how bad the scripts and storyline since the original have been and have stated they're working on something special for Predators, not that I'm holding my breath or anything but I hope it is good.

Reading what little there is about the storyline so far, it sounds a lot more similar to the original, only with 3 Predators rather than just the 1 (I'd have preffered 1 to be honest). It sounds similar to Aliens, what with the elite group of soldiers being confronted by a small group of lethal alien species, only instead of Aliens... Predators!

No matter what though, I hope it'll be good, as I am a big Predator fan.

Regards,
Jake.

Hopefully this shall be good. As a fan of the movies, and the brilliant new game, which may I say- Go buy! Is probably one of my all time favourite universes. The actors seem good, with Laurence Fishbourne, or however you spell his damned name, and Danny Trejo (Awesome dude) so I have some form of high hopes. I do hope this comes out in cinema however, and not straight to DVD as that way, I doubt I will see it, but if it does come in cinema, methinks ill be there

Nyctophobia- Fear of the Dark Angel.

"No one ever spoke about of those two absent brothers. Their separate tragedies had seemed like aberrations. Had they, in fact, been warnings that no one had heeded?"

'Killing a man is like fucking, boy, only instead of giving life you take it. You experience the ecstasy of penetration as your warhead enters the enemy's belly and the shaft follows. You see the whites of his eyes roll inside the sockets of his helmet. You feel his knees give way beneath him and the weight of his faltering flesh draw down the point of your spear. Are you picturing this?'
'Yes, lord.'
'Is your dick hard yet?'
'No, lord.'
''What? You've got your spear in a man's guts and your dog isn't stiff? What are you, a woman?'

Thanks! I love the Predator franchise - albeit not as much as the Alien* though - and as Aliens is my favorite film I await this eagerly

* Does Predator have Hudson? or Cp Hicks? Does it?! thats why Aliens ftw

and the brilliant new game
Tell me you are joking. It might have been a good game if there was a way to turn of the goddamn screen blur when you turn quickly and if the controls for the pc mouselook didn't feel like they were floating in water. Hell it is like playing the damn game on an xbox controller for christs sake. And the storylines are SHORT, way too short.


I have to admit to being intrigued by this movie idea. Can't honestly see how Topher Grace got cast in it though. Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against him and absolutely loved him as Eric in That 70's Show but I can't see him as part of "an elite team of warriors" in any way, shape, or form.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

If it's a prequel, then they technically wouldn't even be born yet. Remember, Ripley floated in space for 70 years before being picked up. Plus, Micheal Bean and Bill Paxton are way to old now to reprise there rolls. Do as I do and set Alien and Aliens aside from the rest of the poop they made. The first two are the only ones that count.
__________________________________________________ _________________________________________________

As for the Predators movie, I see quite a few "fatal flaws" in the casting... looks "B" rate to me.

Topher Grace (really, top billing? He is the "hero"??? I don't think so. He was not a good choice at all.) ... Edwin

Adrien Brody (Doesn't belong in a Predator movie, should stick with chick flicks and drama's) ... Royce

Danny Trejo (was "OK" in the movie "HEAT" as a sidekick, not to be cast as a major roll) ... Cuchillo

Laurence Fishburne (Possible "token black guy"... he will end up dead in the first 35 minutes) ... Noland

Alice Braga (who?)... Isabelle

Derek Mears (again, who?)... Predator

Brian Steele (another "who"?)... Predator

Walton Goggins (this is getting old... but, who?)... Stans

Mahershalalhashbaz Ali (Who the fuck is this and why did his parents hate him so much to name him that!?!?!) ... Mombasa

Carey Jones (?)... Predator

Oleg Taktarov (I am getting tired of using the "?" button, but, who?)... Nikolai

Louis Ozawa Changchien (holy fucking shit! I couldn't wait for him to be in another movie... oh, wait... WHO???)... Hanzo
__________________________________________________ __________________________________________________
I mean, were is the Terminator or the Apollo Creed for this movie? No action star or steroid shooting guy(s) to kick some ass? Not going to work.

He was Shane in The Shield over seven seasons. A very good actor indeed.

Actually untrue. According to the bits ive read Laurence Fishburne is playing a human who has survived on the Predator homeworld for years, he isn't part of the initial group at first.

I doubt he'll die quickly, he probably will die in the end but it'll be a great death and probably the final one.

Can't say I ever watched that show. I just can't get into police drama's. Unfortunately, he can't that well known of an actor, but then again I am not trying to keep up with every person to be put on stage, screen or tv. He is just not "A-List" people.

That is why I said, "possible..." I don't think it will be the "final" death in the movie, as Topher Grace will claim that prize I believe. Either way, I have been dissapointed with the Alien movies since "Aliens", and Predator II was shit. AvP was poor at best, and had such a dumb plot that it sort of ruined the movie for me. I guess I am just jaded to both of the franchises because of the trash they have put out recently. Either way, I will rent it when it goes direct to DVD.
