It's not so much about movie having comedy in it - it's about when and how much you use it. In Predator only Hawkins (who accidentally dies first) making  pussy jokes, in The Predator pretty much everybody trying one up one another in being funny. In Predator as soon as creature makes itself known all jokes are dropped and everybody is dead serious, in The Predator creature is reffered to as "Alien Whoopi Goldberg ".

I might enjoy it, but the way comedy is used in The Predator is very different from the original

Too me, that doesn't equate. As ridiculous as it is, the minigun is played straight. Don't think comedy, think comic booky, with a cool name fired by a cool character.

Sorry, but I don't see a difference. Hefting a minigun like that is 100% dumb, and the film clearly knows it given how it's played with during the jungle camp assault. That's not to say it isn't also really cool - but it is stupid, and I find it very comical pretty much whenever it's on screen.

It's like the cheesy cast call at the end of the movie - that shit's hilarious.

It's not so much about movie having comedy in it - it's about when and how much you use it.

That's fair, but that's not the argument I was criticising. It's not the people saying they didn't like the comedy or how it was implemented, it's the people who lambast The Predator for even having comedy in it, and I'm like, have you even seen the first movie?

And there's your answer. They have seen the first movie. And generally people aren't seeing things like the cast of characters like you and cracking up laughing and taking it as comedy.

It's never made me laugh once. It just makes me smile and feel good about the characters.

Yeah,  I would never call original Predator a comedy even if it does have comedic elements in it

I get what you mean now. Can't say I've personally seen people bashing the movie specifically for that bur I see your point

Being fortunate enough to see Predator opening weekend in a theater in 1987 as a little kid, and the whole experience for me was so memorable, after the second p*ssy joke (where I was worried about my mom getting pissed off) the only time my audience laughed was after the "you're one ugly mother f*cker" line. As someone who liked to look at people's reactions, people looked tense. After credits started rolling after the cast of characters, the audience started filing out and were getting up looking pretty somber.

"Time to let Old Painless out the bag" is a perfect line to reveal and absolute beast.  Blaine's response...



just as cool.  8)


Mac cutting loose with it does it for me. The score dropping out and giving way to the roar of the gun always gives me chills.
Oh Yeah! I can just hear this gif!

Another picture of Van Damme in an unpainted original Predator costume.  Sorry if this has been posted before.

Looks like poor Van Damme would've had hard time standing up let alone moving in the damn thing

Nice! I'll have to check my archive but I don't believe I've seen this one. Thanks for posting it!

Sweet.  I've only seen a few Van Damme Predator pictures and I can't remember where I got this from originally.  My original picture archive accidentally got wiped.
