I really believe the Predator franchise doesn’t get the credit it deserves when it comes to the deeper themes and subtext, it does just sometimes come down to wanting to the see 7 foot tall extra-terrestrial hunters go toe-to-toe with the best of what planet Earth has to offer. Sometimes that’s an elite squad of mercenaries, sometimes it’s being stuck ... [Read More]
One of the elements of the Predator franchise that I absolutely love is how flexible it is. You can take the Predator and drop it into another genre, or another timeframe, and build a narrative around it quite easily. This is a lesson that the expanded universe learned really early on. Dark Horse made great use of this flexibility with ... [Read More]

The Alien and Predator franchises are full of iconic imagery, of scenes that have become so ingrained in pop culture memory, and of scenes that have been spoofed or homaged in countless other franchises. With such a wealth of brilliant sequences, it’s very easy for fans – for fans of cinema, regardless of just Alien and Predator – to discuss ... [Read More]

Perfect Organism is to Alien what Man of Steel is to Superman, what Dark Knight is to Batman. The Perfect Organism is the Alien. So when David told Walter “I found perfection here. I’ve created it. Perfect Organism” Alien: Covenant is explicitly telling us something: that David created the Alien.
Before we dive too deep, I just wanted to say that ... [Read More]
If you’re familiar with Alien vs. Predator Galaxy, it should come as no surprise that I’d be interested in exploring more of those could-have-beens. But unlike some of our other articles, this isn’t an alternate script. It’s a look at an alternate design that has eventually been retconned into something completely different. And the road that this particular retcon has ... [Read More]
From the moment Pat Cadigan’s Alien 3: The Unproduced Screenplay by William Gibson was first announced, I had been incredibly curious about how I was going to react to it. At the risk of repeating myself from previously talking about the other recent adaptations of Gibson’s material, this kind of project is something I’m really enthusiastic about.
It was one of the things ... [Read More]

That variety in the types of games is something I appreciate. I love that I can pick up a nonsensical 32 bit Alien shooter dripping ... [Read More]

When you think about Predator characters, Light-Stepper is not one you often see get talked about. Despite the fact that next to Ahab, he’s actually the most recurring Predator, Light-Stepper doesn’t see the same attention that the likes of Broken Tusk or Wolf do. And while Light-Stepper’s appearances are in shorter stories, he also has the distinction of being the ... [Read More]
