A wonderful video from CorderyFX on YouTube that goes into a nice review of the Predator heads over the course of the films. Some of the photoshop updates are interesting to see a different view.

To be fully honest I've never heard of Cordery FX. Aren't they too small of an fx company to be taking on the next predator ?

More of a movie reviewer and commentator than a company. He has done effects for movies, tho mostly obscure low budget movies.

Bashing Berserker Predators face design ?



And argument like "It just sucks" just doesn't count

Ok, I've watched the video. I especially liked one point he brought up: Preds' faces from original and from P2 were designed with closed mandibles in mind while AvP movies and subsequent sequels went with the opposite idea of mandibles being able to open as far as possible. Not something I've ever thought about before

I agree about the floppy skin making them look cheap and fake. That's a big obvious problem and to think nobody changed that is baffling to be honest.

I've said the same thing about "scientists" in Prometheus but I've never noticed skin flopping issue untill it was brought up to me by someone else. I guess, I'm just blind to such things  :D

Idk, it helps when AvP was your introduction point

Most likely the reality of it actually. I idolized the first two films for over a decade before Scar took his helmet off.

I grew up being blown away by the effects work on Jungle & City Hunter
