PREDATORS

The classic 1987 sci-fi action flick Predator gave us more than its share of memorable lines, most notably what would eventually become the title of future-governor Jess Ventura’s book, I Ain’t Got Time To Bleed. Sadly, this sequel, while entertaining enough to offer an escape from whatever summer heat wave may be plaguing you, doesn’t have any moments comparable to “I ain’t got time to bleed” or even “If it bleeds, we can kill it.” But considering how disappointing Predator 2 was—not to mention the extremely excretable Aliens vs. Predators movies—this latest installment comes as something of refreshing surprise. And by “refreshing” I mean that when it’s really hot out, and you want to see a movie that requires almost no thought, while providing plenty of action and special effects, all within the confines of an air-conditioned movie theater, a film like Predators is exactly what you need. Plus, it co-stars Walton Goggins and Danny Trejo, which provide more than enough reason to watch it.

    I am looking forward to this, with the hope of mindless fun and Danny Trejo.

    Best line from the original, and definitely the best line from a Minnesota Governor:

    “Bunch of slack-jawed faggots around here. This stuff will make you a god damned sexual Tyrannosaurus, just like me.” – The Body

    I was happy with it, for the most part. Surprised no one detonated one of those wrist watch-nuclear bombs, but really liked the sword fight, and loved that Coggins shanked a Predator. Also liked Little Richard over the end credits. There was enough old and enough new to recommend it…
