Decipher languages my ass.
Unless this kid swaps out the "want some candy scene from pred 2" by surprise mimicking a predator like the autistic kid in The mimic with the spoons. Im still thinking itd be better to just call this a mac and me sequel.
I hate kids. (Its cool. I used to be one) in movies where they run the risk of destabilizing the whole thing. It worked in Aliens because Rebecca Jordan was the literal only survivor of hadleys hope. She didnt have to be a genius. Or special. Or autistic or even female. She just had to be a scared kid that fit into the cooling ducts. And im pretty sure she wasnt the only kid to fit. Just the only one that was still ferreting around in there when the sulaco pulled into orbit. What the hell was i saying. Oh yeah. Shane blacks a great writer. But this isnt the nice guys. I hated losing Avp time to some asshole pizzaboy who was in love. And i would prefer not to lose 45 minutes worth of film to "i have a son. He is autistic. Have to save my son. Give me back my son. We did it. Im glad your my son"
For those of you concerned with yautja culture. And predators losing their scary factor. What the hell are you talking about. Predator is not scary. The Alien is scary. Because it can physically tuck you under it arm and will carry you off. It borrows traits from its host to better prey on that species. . Predator can kill you . yes. Doesnt mean he will. But unlike the Alien. predators show a capacity for individual thought. Broken tusk. Ahab. Light stepper. Wolf. Hell even three spot.
I see so many complaints about not wanting to see predator in the kitchen. You kidding? We saw predators . Twice on film . Disinfect some wounds and put on a bandaid. And i dunno about you. But that shit was fascinating as hell. Keep the "new" weapons to a minimum. . Alien tail whips? Dumbass shurikens. Under utilized falcon drone. Triple length reversible wrist blades? Spend that extra special fx m9ney on mime lessons. Kevin peter hall did more hopping from root to root by the lake in val verde or letting his arms swing at his sides before taking his stance against king Willie to show thinking Alien mind. Than all the crap the last 3 directors forced down our throats with. Posturing. Fancy weapons. Needless roars.. Ian whytes performance improved dramatically from avp to avp2. So much so i thought it was a different actor. ALIEN FILM. PREDATOR FILM. Good comics. Its gonna be a good year.
