    I have been laughing at the negative reviews. Its like these folks were expecting a award winning alien adventure. The first one was great because it was a campy thriller. I want to see this but may wait till the cheap seats here. Im broke.

    I'm really curious about it. I'm thinking of seeing it.

    I also like to hear critics complain about the acting in a movie like Mortal Kombat. How deep did they think the characters were? They were characters in a two-dimensional game from the time when stories weren't as big a deal in games as they are now.

    I thought the ending sucked, intruduced some new **** but they copied the original a lot. I would give it a 5 out of ten

    Re: Predators

    There are several nods to the original including some sayings. I thought a couple parts were a little cheesy but overall it was a great action/monster flick.

    Re: Predators

    OK, is this a prequel, sequel, a reboot or is it supposed to stand alone from those other movies?



    What ever happened to truth, justice and the American Way?

    The way I understand it, it's a sequel to the original Predator as it references that movie a couple of times (so I've read).

    Regardless of what the "critics" say, I can't wait to see it.

    It only referenced Predator 1, but didnt do anything to dispel Predator 2 - just no references to it. It completely ignores both AVP movies however.

    Speaking of AVP, both of them were on back to back on F/X last night so I of course watched them.

    The first one wasnt great, but I thought the 2nd was awful.
