Episode 20.5: The Predator Killer

By which I mean, the Predator franchise killer is this movie.

I think it’s about time to give up on the Predator franchise. If The Predator shows the direction of the franchise, then we should really just. Pack it in. I’m not really exaggerating here. Go and watch it if you don’t believe me. No really. Go. Then come back and listen to us talk about The Predator, directed by Shane Black and released on September 14, 2018.


Show-notes:


2:24 The Nice Guys was the last movie that Shane Black directed and is probably at least five times better than The Predator.
3:13 Fred Decker’s filmography includes some “cult hit” horror movies from the 80s, like The Monster Squad.
5:33 I’ve seen stranger things than Stranger Things.
6:37 I’ve seen things more expansive than The Expanse.
6:42 Our other podcasts, Trust Your Doctor and Zenith, have been recognized for being the two greatest podcasts of all time.
7:26 I’ve seen things chuckier than Chuck.
7:46 And The Book of Henry wasn’t book-y or henry-y enough. Come on, Colin.
10:48 Here are trailers for Aquaman, Shazam (starring Zachary Levi), Venom, Serenity (not Plymouth, dunno why I thought it was called that), Overlord, and Alita.
15:13 Props to Henry Jackman for making a good soundtrack for this shitty movie.
20:31 I’ve been meaning to watch Arrival for 2 years.

Episode 20: Bicep-Off

Pew pew check out these guns.

In space no one can… wait. No sorry wrong 80’s action/horror franchise. What’s the slogan for the Predator movies? Honestly don’t even know. Get to the chopper? If it bleeds we can kill it? Wow these suck. It’s Predator, released in 1987, 1990 and 2010. How does that make sense? Because we watched Predator, Predator 2 and Predators.


Show-notes:


3:02 The Southern Reach trilogy is a book trilogy written by Jeff VanderMeer.
5:09 The Most Dangerous Game is a pretty famous story from 1924.
7:32 Lethal Weapon, like Predator, is another well-known movie from the late 80s.
8:49 The Nice Guys came out in 2016.
25:40 Behold. The majesty of the original Predator suit.
43:45 Sin City is just a movie man I don’t know it’s late.
48:07 The Darjeeling Limited and The Pianist were two 2000s movies with Adrien Brody in it. Too bad Brody is stranded on the Predator planet now.
57:39 Script supervisor or continuity supervisor.
1:08:07 The Women Men Don’t See is a 1973 story by James Tiptree Jr.
1:14:05 Black Hole looks really interesting.
