If it's crap ... We'll tell you
*Insert Predator theme here*
Oh yeah! Well I'm sure all of you Predator fans out there who really enjoyed this new chapter to the Predator saga already picked up this bad boy when it hit stores last week. I just got it, so I figure I might as well talk about it. I'm not gonna review it (I already did ya dummy) because I still feel the same way about the film after seeing it again in all it's blu-ray glory! Check out the review HERE.
Predators is directed by Nimord Antal, remember that people, Nimrod Antal (Kontrol, Armored) NOT Robert Rodriguez (who only produced the film despite his name being printed on the blue-ray box about five times) brings the Predators back to their jungle roots, abducting and hunting the worst killers Earth has to offer. You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. WAWAWEEWA!
This blu-ray offers all kinds of inside scoops into the movie like the feature, Evolution of the Species: Predators Reborn, where you get inside the heads of Nimrod and Robert along with the cast and crew. They show and tell you how much they really didn't want to screw up this movie, so much so that they kept paying homage to the original. Hell, even I got confused as to which Predator movie I was watching. Haha, I'm just messing with you! You see some interesting production art and hear from Robert how the story evolved from his original script intended for Ahhnold. You also get exclusive prequel motion comic vignettes voiced by the actors themselves. They're super short so don't get too excited. You get the deleted scenes which I honestly wouldn't have put on this disc to begin with. THEY ARE TERRIBLE!!! Thank Predator Jesus that he used those cool blades to cut these scenes, they could have honestly made this movie cringe worthy, I kid you not. Oh and just go ahead and skip "The Chosen" featurette. Anytime you have actors looking into a camera and telling you all about their character "in character" it's pretty embarrassing for everyone. Funny how none of the major stars had to act in this "we really need to put one more thing on this disc" feature.
Other than that, I actually found the features fun and insightful, especially while listening to the audio commentary by Antal and Robert. I did find it funny hearing Robert pretty much tell Antal throughout the commentary, "This is my favorite movie out of my body of work and I didn't even direct it." The way I look at it, this didn't end up resembling the Aliens vs Predator series and they both should pat each other on the back for that again. But not too long.
Go pick this up if you haven't or ask Santa to steal it for you on Christmas.
If I had it my way with the ending of Predators, I would have made that captured Predator (the one that looks like the original Predator) take that Predator ship and go back to Earth to get REVENGA on Dutch, for driving his Predator brother (they both had the same mommy and daddy) mad, forcing him to nuke himself in the original Predator! That would have been so BAD ASS!!! KARATE KICK!!! THE SEQUEL TO END ALL SEQUELS I TELLS YA! I want my name printed at least 10 time on that stupid blu-ray box!
I WILL AVENGE YOU BROTHER!
