Join me and Jimmy B as we examine the genius that is Predator (1987) [there’s a remake coming]. We discuss each of the principle actors and their careers and political aspirations, who could have been in the film, and how awesome the film is. We both love it and marvel at its solid construction and timeless story of mercenaries being hunted in a jungle by a Rastafarian fish-man. We play around with recasting the film in a later era and discuss the sequels.
Technically, this is explicit again because of me, but not really.
We’re watching the Blu-ray. Start after the 20th Century Fox logo, on the countdown.
Join me as I’m joined for the first time by Jimmy B from the Friends in Your Head forum and Extended Edition podcast for a look at Sylvester Stallone and Kurt Russell’s big team-up. We compare it to Lethal Weapon, Police Story, Die Hard, other buddy-cop comedies of the time, and James Bond movies.
We also marvel at their hair and suits, and at a still-humble Teri Hatcher. We stand in awe that the film ever saw the light of day because, at some point, everybody but Stallone got replaced at least once.
Jimmy’s microphone betrays us, and he’s a bit difficult to understand at times. (I mean aside from the Scottish accent.)
