QuoteThis isn't as difficult as it may seem, either. Certain pervasive and undeniable features have always defined your standard Predator flick, and how they were deployed in the existing 4-film (no Alien crossovers) canon can be quantified by way of an 8-point evaluation system. These eight categories are as follows:

Kill Count (Active Killings Seen Onscreen)
Kill Frequency (The Average Time Between Kills)
Total Predators (More Predators > Less Predators)
Acting Quality (Judged on the EGOT Scale for Top-Line Speaking Cast)
Box Office (Gross over Budget Quantifier)
Critical Score (RT/Metacritic/Cinema Score)
Hand-to-Hand Melee Encounters (As Percentage of Total Runtime)
Body Mass (As Defined by the 8 Top-Line Speaking Cast)

Using these metrics, we can objectively rate each installment in a broader effort to understand what makes these pictures so special in the first place. Like the Yautja, this will be a cold, dispassionate, disciplined investigation; it is one that looks at what it means to fly a film under the Predator banner, and the lessons the franchise has taught the world over the years: lessons that inform this very study, starting with...
