We have just uploaded the 55th episode of the Alien vs. Predator Galaxy Podcast (right-click and save as to download)! Our latest episode sees the podcast regulars myself, RidgeTop and Xenomorphine joined by community guest and YouTuber Mr H Reviews as we discuss Predator as part of a belated 30th anniversary episode!

 AvPGalaxy Podcast #55 - Predator 30th Anniversary Retrospective

We talk the first time we saw Predator, the mystery of the early marketing, the importance of the cast’s personalities, the concept of Predator honour (honour or big game hunter?) and plenty more!

At one point we mention the 3D release of Terminator 2 being later this month. This episode was recorded in August and refers to the late August release of the film. We also mention Sandy Collora but fail to mention his involvement with Batman: Dead End.

Mr H's voice sounds like Maxwell Stafford played by Colin Salmon in AVP 2004

Once again great podcast gentlemen! I'm more of a predator fan so it was a real treat to listen to this one. Plus I'm a huge fan of Mr.H  so I almost shit my pants when I heard him on this podcast. I would love to hear everyone's first "encounter" with the predator! I was watching it with my brother on TBS circa 1993 ish. He explained it was about an alien hunter who stalks and kills for fun. Being around 7 at the time I was completely captivated by the mystery around this creature. Who was it? Why did it hunt? Where did it come from? My brother who is older had already seen the movie and had built up the big reveal when you see the predators' face. When I saw the pred remove its mask for the first time I was blown away with how incredible It looked. I'd never seen anything like it. It seemed so realistic!! So iconic. Even to this day i hold my breath when it shows it's face! Simply bad ass!

C'mon where's the Pred community at!?

He worked on Predator 2. There's a thread in the Lit board about the book we're talking about but there's not been a great deal of activity with it.

Glad you enjoyed it! :) I know it's been very Alien centric of late but with Covenant coming out it was a little inevitable. And Alien just has more content anyway. Hopefully when the marketing starts kicking off for The Predator, we'll see more people show up. That's normally how it works.  :)

I look forward to more predator stuff!!!  ;D

We recorded an interview with the editor/author of Predator: If It Bleeds last night. So that'll be out towards the end of the month.  :)

Can't wait! I preorder that book at the beginning of the year. I really hope it's similar to the alien: "bug hunt" collection in scope and variety.

*fixed quote. Hicks.

Just caught up good episode. Particularly like Hicks saying so ( starts question) - xenomorphine butts in , talks for 12 minutes, Hicks - "yeah so that question" lol

I think the part Xenomorphine mentions about the transition on the waterfall scene in the remaster isn't anything to do with the remaster. That scene was always pixelated, like it was shot on a different camera. Predator has a few of these scenes ( Random drastic drops in quality). Pretty sure the scene where Blane thinks he's found something and it's a rodent also looks jarring in quality. They were all in the original like that.

Also Ridgetop do you have the ltd edition Camo version of the  LP soundtrack ? Fatbeats got them back in, think there was only 1300 made. I snagged one the other day.

I enjoyed the podcast as well. I agree it did get a little bogged down in moments but overall good stuff. In regards to the waterfall scene, I remember hearing an interview about that part. Something to do with the wrong film in camera B?
