Prey - take away the beautiful, atmospheric scenery and it's a 4/10. The acting, in the beginning, was just really bad. I'll forgive the awful Sharknado quality CGI, as it was a very low-budget movie. The new Predator design was bad. The story was better than anything that came out after the second movie (Not saying a lot there), but still just kinda meh.

Prey - :idk: / 10

While, as a Predator movie, it's got a decent enough story, there's a lot of elements working against it.

Rosa from Roswell is acting better here than she ever did in Roswell, where her primary "skill" has been looking numbly at the camera while other people around her do things. The men of the tribe being complete assholes is such a shock in this day and age. Oh my stars.

*ROLLS EYES*

It was entertaining, and certainly better than several other Predator afterthoughts. But I wouldn't be recommending it to anyone as a great film anytime soon.

I liked Prey for the most part. The bar for the series is so low that it is fairly easy to impress with anything at this point.

On the subject of movies with a message; They/Them. No/Nope is more like it.

I found Prey very entertaining. But, they forgot the Predator's blood was toxic acid

YES! Thought the same thing. Unless I am confusing it with acidic alien blood?

re watching other Predator movies before Prey


Let's be honest though, the bar has always been basically at 0, including the OG :lol: (that's not to say I don't like it)

Alien>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Predator

Day Shift 5/10 (netflix)
Once again, a totally predictable plot with painfully stereotyped characters. Don't bother

Watched the Stallone flick anyway :whistle: :lol:


Um; probably one of the better 4/10 films I have seen? Child actor wasn't good; actor portrayal of the villain was ridiculous and the overall tone of the film was like a weird mix of Spy Kids style "humor" and I don't what else. Weirdo Nickelodeon dude using his Drexel Spivey Starter Kit was also very distracting. Despite all that; it was ok. I wouldn't necessarily watch it again but I made it through it if nothing else and enjoyed some moments here and there.

Also; watched Top Gun Maverick right after. Was very good. Took enough beats from the original while going it's own way (aka recreating tensions and scenes from the original but doing it slyly enough that it isn't always obvious). I enjoyed it quite a bit. Especially compared to the Stallone flick.

Nope: I mean.../10

I consider "Us" to be one of the worst movies I have ever seen, but I liked his first movie for its uniqueness. In that trend, Nope was very unique, and with the exception of a few dumb things, I kinda enjoyed it. Especially the creature design. Turn brain off, watch movie. It works.
