It seems at this point even critics don't particular like it either, its now at 32% on the rotten tomato meter. I could have sworn it was around 60% when the film first came out.

After a few early reviews maybe? But no, once the reviews went wide before release the critical consensus was always a Rotten Tomato.

But seeing one of your favourite creatures on the big screen again, especially after a very long time, can really give you a mongrel for a brief while, but later what you saw really starts to sink in... Personally, I had a good time watching it in the cinema, just because it was a new Predator movie, but later hated the film more and more.

So, I was thinking about this for a long time going back and forth with my opinion. I think I can call myself one of the bigest defenders of this movie. But now, especially after franchise got a shot in the arm called Prey, I can confidently say that The Predator, in fact, was a quite terrible movie.

When the movie came out back in 2018 I tried so hard to convince myself I liked it. I'm not quite sure why, I guess it was a combination of being my first ever theatrical Predator experience which I attended with my dad and me feeling that movie didn't necessarily deserved all the trashing it got from critics and viewers. After a while it just became semi-ironic game of defending kinda trashy movie and being in opposition to the majority of fans. Now, I'm at the point where I feel like "sigh Why couldn't you be better ?". I don't hate it and I still don't think it's as bad or worse than Requiem. I just have no desire to go back to it. Even the prospect of one day maybe seeing Emissaries cut doesn't excite me anymore.

I understand that I'm probably being too over-dramatic talking about some movie from more than 4 years ago. I just felt the need to write down my thoughts. I would also like to apologise to anyone who's time and nerves I wasted arguing about this movie ( @SiL  ,you're the first who comes to mind). These were my early days on the boards and it ain't something I'm terribly proud of

I honestly don't remember having an issue with discussing the movie with you at all for what it's worth.

Still haven't seen it since it came out and doubt I will for a long time.
