I always say the portrayal of autism in The Predator is akin to having a character who's a paraplegic in a wheelchair who gets up and runs when their condition would be inconvenient to the plot.

I honestly have no idea what you're talking about.

So out of interest - was the upload with the film audio of use to anyone?

I didn't even know you did that honestly.

that's good, but in essence, you have a similar kind of "representation"

Or Morbius?

I'm sorry, I'm quite lost.

it's good you haven't seen the movie so you have no idea what I'm talking about (I was making an elaborate joke I guess)

but in it, the main character is disabled, then he suddenly isn't, and there is absolutely zero recognition of this script-wise... as if the disability was just plot-convenient. Pred 2018 treats autism similarly.

It is worrisome that sometimes scripts like these pass thru all the tests and somehow they end up as films

Yes! I was waiting until I listened to it to post. But I was going to say I was surprised you included it. I know you're against doing it but that's how a commentary should be. It helps find where you are in the movie which is especially important when you're listening to just audio.

Honestly I just thought it'd be more useful for the people who wanted to listen to it on the go.

SiL

Ooh, that's an option? Time to synch it to the movie and watch it

Omegamorph

Glad people are using that option, it's definitely the best way to have fun with the commentary

I just used the YT so I missed that completely.

I mean was it even? All I could see in the movie was script-convenient hollywood autism.

I mean sadly anything above portraying people with autism as annoying overly pedantic nerds is them trying a positive approach in their minds (unfortunately). Again I can't stress idiotically bungled enough.
