The Predator


2018  R 1:47  See the source image action, adventure, Sci-fi, Horror

Boyd Holbrook , Alfie Allen, Keegan-Michael Key,Trevante Rhodes, Thomas Jane, Sterling K. Brown

I take this is a sequel considering the tag line (but honestly I don’t remember how many (minus alien vs. Predator) there are.

I don’t really remember the previous movies I saw them so long ago, but I’m thinking this one would be considered a comedy compared to the others.

After a jungle battle some allies in Latin America vanish and a crew of combat vets are dispatched to locate them, but all they find is dead bodies and an encounter with the predator. McKenna finds some proof of his encounter and mails it home.

Thomas Jane’s character has turrets and while its not a laughing matter it ends up creating some funny moments and lines, like when he has a gun in his face.

Its almost Halloween and McKenna’s autistic son has the choice between being a pirate and Frankenstein.  He answers the door when a package is delivered and opens it. Guess what he’s dressing as for Halloween! (forget the mask I want the arm thing.

Multi-screen’s Top Movies of 2018


In no Particular order, well maybe a little

basically the first 2 I won’t count as it’s what we expect from  those

Marvel’s Avengers Infinity war which broke hearts and made some if not many of us cry;

and Black Panther the top action movie of the year.

 

I’ll number the rest (I just can’t decide what other movies to add.)

Tag

Upgrade

Skyscraper

Ready Player one

 

The Belko experiment

Game night

The shape of water

Hotel Artemis

Going in Style

Terrifier  (Netflix)

 

15 Best Monsters of 2018

I definitely agree with ‘The Peaches’ on this. And as far as the picture used for A Quiet Place.. I’ll agree.

 

(Don’t agree on

The Shimmer’s Humanoid (Annihilation) (alien maybe but not a monster)

The Jötunn (The Ritual)   until I saw this listed I had totally forgot this movie.

Bent Neck lady of House on haunted Hill wasn’t that scary nor a monster.

Saw the flash Ragdoll and wasn’t impressed plus wasn’t; that same person part of the Hocus Pocus anniversary Celebration?

 

The rest of the entries, aside from insidious and Channel Zero I am waiting for from my Queue. Although I did watch Overlord. It was from 1975… don’t bother unless you like WW1 and 2 movies. I rented it as I thought it was the original to the over lord that came out in 2018. Sadly it wasn’t, but as a marvel fan and just loved Fitz in Marvel’s The S.H.I.E.L.D.  I had to see it. (plus I’m guessing its something like the ‘snow nazis’ movie (I can’t think of the name of that… ah  Dead Snow)

Sadly the ice cream man is a comic or graphic novel. So not sure if I’ll find that.

Did this REALLY need to be remade (or rebooted or whatever)?

Yes, Movies based on video games and comics are better received these days; however if you are going to remake or ‘re-imagine’ a movie already made, you are supposed to do a better job. Just watching the trailer, I thought not…watching the movie to give it a fair shot….

2018  NR   2;00   Action, fantasy, Horror

 

Red Miller sees his rural pacific life spin out of control an hour after the movie starts when his girlfriend (or wife) is kidnapped by a crazy cult leader and his followers who burn her alive. Of course a blood vengeance will be enacted.

Ugh not sure what the hell that was with the first hour. Maybe an attempt to get us to like his girl I don’t know. But that first hour felt like 3. As I said I have no idea what was with that hour, at one point I had to start fast forwarding through parts. This should have been one of those “Don’t Watch This’ series of shorts (the shortest one is like 2 minutes or a little over) if they would have cut this to be just an hour, or 45 minutes they would have had a winner. I can’t see how the hell some people called this one of the best of the year.

There’s some weird shit in here and my apologies but much, if not all belongs in the toilet bowl.

There’s things in here that look like they belong in Hellraiser as Pinheads Cenobites. One looks like he’s got spikes all over like that ghost in the 13 Ghosts movie from 2001.

as I said the first hour felt so long with all the nonsense and not even sure there was really any story to that first half but really I was no longer interested. The dialog was  a yawner The only good part was crushing someone’s head.

Even once they kill the girl, and he starts preparing for war. The payback is a bore too though Nic Cage is  pretty scary looking with fake blood on his face.

Either Skip the first hour otherwise its a BIG SKIP (unless you have insomnia, then by all means go ahead it should help)

Dwayne (The Rock) Johnson ,Joe Manganiello ,Jeffrey Dean Morgan ,Malin Akerman ,Will Yun Lee

When I heard The Rock was cooking up a movie based on my Favorite arcaded game, I thought… Well its about DAMN time my game becomes a movie. At the same time I was weary to see it in the theater especially with Ready Player One on about to be released as well)  and cynical about him being part of it (didn’t matter what way though) I thought they were going to really screw it up.

The game which I have (well for playstation 2 but I wish I had the wii version…)  You can play the old arcade version as well as the new one. The new one I will admit is more fun as you can unlock new monsters, and destroying everything is a lot more fun too. So I could only imagine how much more fun it would be playing on the wii system.
