    Now that a new movie is coming out this year, I decided to revisit the Predator franchise. Predator (1987) https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0093773/ Not only is this the first and best entry in the franchise, this is easily also Arnold Schwarzenegger's best film. Conan the Barbarian and Conan the Destroyer got Schwarzenegger's foot into Hollywood, The Terminator gave him his first taste at fame, Commando and Raw Deal proved that he could act and not just play a speech slurring big muscle warrior again in Red Sonja, Predator showed what a good script can do for a little known Austrian body builder turned actor giving Schwarzenegger his first near $100 million grossing film, which lead to three more action films (The Running Man, Red Heat, Total Recall), two $200+ million grossing comedies (Twins, Kindergarden Cop) and then the $523+ million grossing movie that made Schwarzenegger an international household name: Terminator 2 Judgement Day. But to me, Predator will always be Schwarzenegger's best film and furthermore, Predator is also one of only 8 movies ever made that I consider to be near perfect or perfect. 5/5 Predator 2 (1990) https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0100403/ The studio bigwigs wanted Arnold to star in the sequel but didn't want to pay him what he was worth so they got Danny Glover instead. This movie is a big not so hot mess and you can't blame Danny Glover - he is a professional who always does his best even when he is handed a stupid script helmed by a sub par director whose one of his previous movie directing gig prior to this was one of the A Nightmare On Elm Street sequels. 1/5 Predators (2010) https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1424381/ I can see the meeting that took place that gave birth to this movie. A couple of 20th Century Fox studio bigwigs were trying to figure out what to do next and one of them says: "Hey we haven't made a Predator film in almost 20 years and the last one without Arnold Schwarzenegger barely made a profit and it was killed by the critics. Let's make another one and this time, once again, we will go without Arnold!" If I thought Predator 2 was a not so hot big mess, this one is ridiculously absurd. The whole concept of being on another planet doesn't help it. The ending left it open with unanswered questions and unfinished plot lines which we may never see answered and resolved by another film. At a budget of over $40 million and a cumulative combined domestic and woldwide gross of $127 million, it didn't make any money by Hollywood Accounting standards. 1/5 I personally have a 3-word phrase to describe Predator 2 and Predators: Dumber and Dumberer!! So will the new Predator film be any good? It's written and directed by Shane Black who wrote 4 Lethal Weapon films, The Last Boy Scout and Iron Man 3 - which he also directed. I hope so but from the story line I could see in the trailer, the Predators were accidentally summoned back to Earth by a kid, I don't have much hope for it. I would think after 8 years since the last film, they could had come up with a better story.

    Awesome! Can't wait to try both. Just finished Desert Railroad. Not much new there, just a few screenshots where before there weren't any. (Hurrah for cable instead of dial-up internet!) One new trick came from a player named Chelle who sent it to me ages ago. As you're heading back toward the front of the train, there's a cutscene where two assassins jump from moving trucks onto the train. If you fire a flash grenade just before the cutscene starts, you can blind the assassins and they'll miss their jumps and fall onto the siding. You can also use it before the earlier cutscene, but you need to use the all-weapons cheat there, since you won't have the grenade launcher yet.
  4. Good job: 4 out of 5. #55 is not What Women Want.

    I'm just at the bit with the Minotaur, so I gave the motorcycle bug a try and it worked great No more annoying Minotaur! 👍 And of course I just had to do the setting Lara alight and running to trigger a cutscene thing in the Citadel Gate

    Finished Guardian of Semerkhet with only 100 more screenshots. 👍 No major discoveries this time. I debated including the first secret after releasing the guardian but ultimately decided to leave it as is. Man, I hate that bull, but compared to the Minotaur in the Citadel Gate, he's practically cuddly. This time, when I get to that level, I'm definitely going to try the bug where you use the motorbike to destroy the Minotaur. Has anyone else had any luck with it? I won't spoil it for anyone who hasn't gotten that far yet, but here's a video (not mine) if you want to check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LVCEbztPjik

    Terminal (2018) https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4463816/ Visually stylish, flashy with a la Blade Runner neon bathed noir mystery thriller with a twisted Tarantino style mixed with Alice In Wonderland twist, this movie was crucified by the critics. It's actually pretty good and the ending will make you say: "Wait !! What the heck just happened ?!?" Stunning Margot Robbie shines in this and the entire cast around her [composed of Simon Pegg, Dexter Fletcher, Max Irons and Mike Myers] is there to support her in her quest for revenge. To all the critics who gave this movie a low rating, I will give them both of my special finger while at the same time, I will give this movie a: 4.5/5
