Predator was released on June 12, 1987, and Roy has been in love with this film since day one of its release. Is this another occurrence of what Sean calls being mugged by nostalgia? We unpack this and other discussions and disagreements over the quality of this sci-fi action masterpiece.
Predator gives many gifts to movie-goers of all ages. The action and explosions are first rate. We are treated to many of the best one-liners in action cinema history and the genius of Stan Winston and his team. We see the magic of ‘Old Painless,’ the M-134 machine gun used by Blaine. Though you do not get much of a back story on the soldiers, the squad of Dutch, Blaine, Mac, Hawkins, Billy, and Poncho are an all-time team. Adding Dylan, pusher of pencils, adds to the joy as well.
As our gift to the listeners (and ourselves), we are re-joined by Mike Scott. He is the host of Adkins Undisputed and co-host of the Dana Buckler Show. He has an encyclopedic mind for multiple genres of movies, but even without asking him, we have the utmost confidence that action is his favorite. We thank Mike for joining us and look forward to future episodes with him as our guest.
Kiki is also back. She was on our Cuties episode. She is a podcast free agent with a lot of good value for different genres of movies.
