I actually fairly well like Predators.  I was inclined to put it as number 1 but, well, Arnold...

I don't dislike Predators. Love the concept of the hunting planet. It all holds together fairly well until the attack where Noland dies; after that I feel like the pacing gets thrown all out of whack.

Yep! Great concept... not so greatly executed.

Predators for me mainly just needed more of the game preserve concept in action and less of the characters wondering what's going on when the audience already knows. And fewer recycled lines.

I like how they finally quoted Hemingway in Predators.  These films revolve around some of his hunting themes anyway.  It is derivative of Predator but in a really good way.  I don't know why this film gets bashed.


Predator 2 is basically a poor adaptation of the first Predator Dark Horse series.  They should have just did it properly with Sheafer played by Dolph Lundgren and set up a third Predator film where Shesf and Alan ( :laugh:) finally meet up... perhaps on the Predator planet...

I cannot disagree more. The way I see it, expect for the exceptional first issue, the "Concrete Jungle" comic series drops in quality with every subsequent issue. So I think the Thomas Brothers, were correct to not adapt anything other than the framework in issue #1.

Agreed, I think Schaefer series in general are overated.

I'll give the caveat that I'm not a big Predator fan but from what I remember, the series was pretty cool, but I like Verheiden's stuff in general.  He has a wry wit that carried through to these comics just like in the original Aliens series.  I also liked the Schwarzenegger connection through his brother.  But that was 13-year-old me I think.  I'm just not passionate about Predator stuff enough to have a firm opinion.  I just found myself wanting that Sheaf storyline to complete itself and as all the Predator comics since abandoned it, I lost interest.  The subsequent Predator series just got worse and worse...

Predator = Predator 2 ( both are outstanding and I watch them regularly)

AvP = Predators ( both are good on their own but  did get allot of shit up on release cause are not as good as originals)

AvP-R = The Predator ( suburban themes are apparently not good for Predator  ;D But seriously, there is big quality drop between all above and those two and they both craped on franchise mythology)

Agreed. Also Schaefer dropping snark jokes in every line of dialogue was especially painful.

There a couple really good Predator series out the there. But there are a lot fewer predator comics overall than Alien and fewer great stories.

The more recent Predator Hunters series are excellent. If you haven't read them I would recommend checking them out.

Love Predator 2 the most. I also love The Predator. Probably one of five people in the world who do. Has some really great action and banter.

lol since my favorite is the original followed by Predator 2, I rank the films in the original order:

1. Predator

2. Predator 2

3. Predators

4. The Predator

How borring I am  :laugh:

That's my ranking as well!



So glad I'm not alone  ;D

Predator is clearly the stronger movie out of the bunch but, when I want to watch a Predator flick, my go to is usually Predator 2. It has a good balance of fun 90s action and banter but then does amazing with adding more lore to the creature.
