I appreciate you can't go into detail, but can you just confirm if the Pred vision sounds have been recycled from P1 and P2? I hate the way they were changed for AVP and Predators as for me its such a staple of the character.

I know they were recycled for the trailers, but then the same was done for AVP and Predators.

Cheers.

same for me! those sounds just add a creepy dimension to the predator's thermal vision. when Shane talked about staying faithful to the original sounds, i hope it applies to their vision too

You mean the "thumping" sound when a Predator stalks it's prey?

They are the same and sound crisp as f*ck (for the Fugitive that is)
There are new sounds though ... but all in all, it's more of the original sounds.

The Assassins is a bit different.

Is the Assassin Predator a worthy entry to the franchise?

Yes and "no".

For me, a Predator was always meant to use tactics to get his prey. Stealth, tactics, a clear vision ... and he executes that to perfection. The Assassin on the other hand ... not so much  :laugh: It took me a while to accept that this "Predator" is different.

Good to hear! Yes those constant thumping heartbeat sounds in the background and others that can be found here

How is the Chemistry between The Loonies? Are they memorable or just throwaway characters?

Just tell us everything! ;)


Glad to hear your positive review, I had a feeling it could be up there with Predator 2 or surpass it in its own ways. Can’t wait to see it!

Great to hear about the first good reaction. Maybe we will get the best-reviewed movie since...since forever?

It's a solid movie. But, people will always find things to pick it apart. 

Well, that kind of tends to happen when an established franchise undergoes alterations. It can be a solid film but at the same time be a Predator shitfest.

I look forward to it, but after four years and recently released material I'm not holding my breath.

Nothing will ever surpass Predator. Not even this one. That's just a fact.

I like Predator 2 more than the first, so what do I know...  :P

Really looking forward to this. Seeing it next Thursday afternoon.

As a comparison, better than the Jurassic World Indominous though? In terms of not being just a big stupid movie monster?

Same here. And I really don't why is that. I can only guess it's something to do with City Hunter.

For me I think Predator is the better movie but enjoy watching Predator 2 more and that’s probably due to City Hunter and seeing more kills and behavior of the predators.
