I hope this film has more original material going for it than the Predalien, the Predator's mask, and the teens. From what I gather, the film's turning out to be "Aliens meets Predator 2." Considering they wanted to have OWLF's crew from Predator 2, it only makes my dismay stronger.

As for the line: it was iconic because Arnold has that thick accent to work with. It's just not the same when you drop it into the middle of the script.

I couldn't stop wondering why he said it, and why he said it like that. It was totally incongruous.

Probably cuz they wasn't in such a big hurry.
I am beginning to think that you guys are going to say that this line from Predator will be ruinded like "You are one ugly motherf**ker" in AvP 1. :-\

two acceptable ways of doing a homage line.

1.  over the top 'GET TO DA CHOPPA!!!!!!!!'

2. subtle like a lesser known line from predator 2. maybe one of keye's lines.

Yeah, what I'm thinking too. Why did he say it like that?  ???

He's talking about the execution, not the line itself.

Yeah.

And here I'm talking about when Arnie said it in P1 not when Dallas says it in AvP-R.

There was no way to put the line in anywhere and satisfy anyone.

-He executed the line bad
-not enough feeling
-it's not the same as arnie
-he's too skinny to say it
-he said it too fast
-he said it too slow
-he said it too quiet
-he said it too loud
-he said it too early
-he said it too late
-it's an alien movie too, so it doesn't count
-I hate that line

It was one line that they didn't expect to become so popular, you can't replicate it. ::)

Well in that case, it's because that's the  accent Arnie has.

How about they try and create their own priceless line, instead of relying on the old films for material? I nearly puked during the first AvP when 'Ugly mother' was used, twice.
