    Predators

    Anyone seen it yet? I went last night and thought it was actually pretty good. Lots of action and violence...exactly what you are looking for in a shoot 'em up summer action flick. Some of the scenes were pretty bad***. Quite a few nods to the original including playing "Long Tall Sally" for the credits.

    Re: Predators

    Was it as good as Cellular or a waste of time like The Dark Knight?

    I'd say closer to the "waste of time" movie, but not exactly comparable to it. Actually, I would place it above either or the AVPs and above Predator 2 with Danny Glover. The original was a sci-fi classic though. To me, it sits right up there with Aliens as the best sci-fi/horror movies ever made.

    Re: Predators

    Were either of the Williams sisters (Venus or Serena) In the movie. If so did you get them confused with the Predators?


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Re: Predators

    It would be if they looked nothing like the predators.

    Yes it is. My best friend is Predator-American and I find this very offensive.

    Re: Predators

    Saw it on Friday with some coworkers. Cheesy, but enjoyable. Good "summer popcorn flick" followup to the original. It was less violent/gory than I was expecting, actually.

    Plenty of Williams sister/Chris Johnson/Cris Bosh jokes flying around ever since.
